YOGA IN ADDICTED PEOPLE – CRITICAL PROBLEM OF COMPLIANCE

KAREL NESPOR.




Abstract

Yoga is a useful part of the complex treatment of addictive diseases for several reasons such as stress management, better coping with emotions and pain or increased self-awareness. The problem is compliance with long-term regular practice. We distributed an original questionnaire among 53 former and 103 current inpatients treated for addictive diseases. Among them 70.2 % felt that the joint yoga sessions, during in-patient treatment, improved their mental state. Despite this, only 55.0 % of current in-patients intended to practice yoga once a week or more at home. 29.5% of former in-patients reported that they practised yoga at home once a week or more. The main obstacles included ‘laziness’, other interests, problems with privacy and housing, lack of time, problems related to family members and friends, health limitations, lack of information and lack of interest. Ways to overcome these obstacles are discussed. Keywords: Yoga, Spirituality, Addictive diseases, Compliance.

Key words: Yoga, Spirituality, Addictive diseases, Compliance.
