Meditation as an Alternative to Substance Misuse: A Current Review

Timothy Francis

Abstract


A review of literature was conducted to investigate meditation as a potentially therapeutic leisure activity choice for substance misusers. Formulated review evaluation criteria and a review of key experiments suggest guidelines for improved research and practice. While future research should consider the interaction of meditation types, individual differences, and prior drug use, the present evidence verifies the use of meditation as a promising treatment choice.
