Addiction hijacks the brain. Families dealing with addicted loved ones know this. Research shows that 95 percent of people suffering from substance use disorders do not think that they have a problem or need treatment. Few addicts enter treatment without meaningful coercion, most often from families or the criminal justice system.
Prescription medications are part of millions of Americans’ daily existence — at least 60 percent of Americans take at least one prescription drug according to the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, Inc. While medications can be helpful and even life-saving, some are addictive and have a high abuse potential.
The spiritual link between yoga and addiction recovery is elucidated in the eleventh step of the famed Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous, which states, “Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood God, praying only for knowledge of God’s will for us and the power to carry that out.” Regardless of religious background or belief, recovery requires devotion to something higher. There is a veritable link between eight limbs of yoga and the principles of the Twelve Steps, such as the shared emphasis on discipline, brotherly love, and integrity, to name a few.
