This course explores a lack of research about disparities in treatment access/outcomes in substance abuse treatment among underserved ethnic/cultural populations. This study uses quantitative research methods to explore the impact of race/ethnic diversity in group relapse prevention treatment as well as the impact of mindfulness-based relapse prevention (MBRP) on treatment efficacy. Recommendations for improving the experience of all participants in culturally-diverse populations are included in the conclusions of the study.
This course is based on the article, Race/Ethnicity and Racial Group Composition Moderate the Effectiveness of Mindfulness-Based Relapse Prevention for Substance Use Disorder created by Brenna L. Greenfield et al. in 2018.
