A new study by scientists at Friends Research Institute in Baltimore found that practice of the Transcendental Meditation technique was able to help those with an addiction to alcohol.

Subjects in the research included 60 people who had been admitted to a treatment facility, half of whom learned the Transcendental Meditation technique.

The study found that those in the Transcendental Meditation group were less likely to have returned to heavy drinking three months later. None of those who closely adhered to the recommended routine of meditating twice daily had gone back to drinking heavily compared to 42% in the control group who had relapsed.

The study has been published online and will appear in the April issue of Journal of Substance Abuse Treatment.

Maharishi University of Management (MUM) Professor Sandy Nidich was also a coauthor of the study.
