Abstract:   (2122 Views)
Substance abuse disorders are considered to comprise the fourth class of diseases. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effectiveness of the multidimensional treatment procedure comprising mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, exercises (chess, ping pong), and daily self-monitoring reports. This study conducted on 40 drug abusers who were selected using convenience sampling method. They were next randomly assigned into 4 groups. Group 1 received play therapy and mindfulness; group 2 received mindfulness, play therapy, and self-monitoring reports; group 3 received mindfulness; while group 4 was the control one. Over a period of two months, the participants went through a program that comprised mindfulness treatment, play therapy, along with self-monitoring reports after mindfulness sessions. Each of these groups was affected by different interventions. Craving beliefs questionnaire was used to collect data. Based on The results, the second group experienced the least amount of craving beliefs after treatment when compared to the other groups. This finding reveals the effectiveness of mindfulness intervention combined with exercise and self-monitoring reports. Hence, mindfulness therapy and behavioral interventions (chess and ping pong) along with self-monitoring reports have a positive impact on reducing the intensity of craving beliefs in addicted individuals.
