Gateway Foundation Substance Abuse Experts are Co-Authors of “Mindfulness-Based Sobriety” Available on Amazon

Determined to advance clinical practices in relapse prevention, Gateway’s Clinical Director Dr. Phil Welches began searching for a best-in-class curriculum back in 2011, yet he didn’t find one that met the needs of Gateway’s diverse clientele. Unwilling to compromise, Gateway’s substance abuse clinicians were enlisted to create a proprietary Relapse Prevention Therapy (RPT) curriculum tailored to the needs of our clients. Gateway clinicians Dr. Welches, Clinical Supervisor Nick Turner and former employee and counselor Sandra Conte collaborated on a new RPT curriculum for use in Intensive Outpatient Treatment.

The new Mindfulness-Based Sobriety curriculum was first piloted in Intensive Outpatient Treatment in 2012. In anticipation of rollout, the authors conducted two, one-day trainings with clinicians representing eight Gateway Treatment Centers. Once it came to life in treatment, positive feedback soon followed and continues. Correspondingly, a version of the curriculum was created for use in our Residential Treatment Programs. The curriculum will continue to rollout in FY14.

To learn about this innovative use of mindfulness directly from the authors of Mindfulness-Based Sobriety, please sign up for our free webinar later this month or order the book and curriculum on Amazon.com.
