The purpose of this project was to locate a potential funding source and write a grant to provide a Mindfulness Based Relapse Prevention (MBRP) program for mothers recovering from substance use disorders (SUDs) at Options for Recovery, in Torrance, Los Angeles County, California. High relapse rates among mothers struggling with SUDs are a serious public health problem both in the Los Angeles community and the United States. The proposed program would provide the mothers with an evidence-based intervention that incorporates mindfulness meditation exercises with relapse prevention skills training.
The Marisla Foundation was selected as the most appropriate funding source. If funded, the program would reduce the relapse rate among mothers, which would directly improve the quality of life for the mothers and their children. The actual submission of the proposal was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
