A Mindful Approach to Addiction and Substance Abuse
SammaVayama Well-Being (SVWB), a holistically oriented substance abuse outpatient treatment facility, is open at 12 Girard Road, in Glassboro. Offering intensive outpatient, outpatient and individual substance abuse counseling, SVWB also conducts talks, classes and workshops on topics related to recovery, spirituality and well-being.
Clients at SVWB participate in yoga and meditation, as well as group therapy, individual sessions, family sessions and psychological education. The staff is dedicated to helping people that are suffering with substance abuse and addiction to develop self-awareness and self-regulation through regular practice, self-reflection and open sharing.
“I’ve seen a lot of well-intentioned treatment produce marginal results because of the program’s inability to engage the client,” explains owner Andrew J. Assini, a licensed clinical drug and alcohol counselor. “I feel like folks learn best through doing, through action, and then relating about their experiences. At SammaVayama, we’ll spend as much time on the mat and the cushion as we will in the chair.”
