Mindful meditation produces a healthy altered state of consciousness for those with addiction issues

In a large clinical trial recently published in Science Advances, Mindfulness-Oriented Recovery Enhancement (MORE) was shown to reduce opioid misuse by 45%, more than doubling the effect of standard therapy.
