Varsha Kriplani, Dr Laxmi Narayan Rathore.

Abstract
Addiction involves continuous use of a substance with neglect of other things in life. It essentially
incorporatesconceptslikeCraving, Tolerance, Withdrawal, Abuse etc., developing a sense of
Dependence in the person. With the increasing civilization and modernization, abuse of various
substances has been rampant across all age groupsspecially youth. Recent National Crime Record
Bureau (NCRB) dataindicates that maximum crime against society conducted by Youth were under
drug or substance influence. With an overall increase in understanding, towards managingpersons
with substance abuse, various treatment modalities were in place. However, review of existing
literature indicates that, use ofbehavioraland/or pharmacologicaltreatment modalities, though
targeting Craving issues are,at best yielding mixed outcomes.Relapses are commonly seen in person
with addiction problems as the sense of Craving- meaning the urge to take a substance, is not well
tolerated by the addict. Further, it also poses challengeseven with use of cognitive therapeutic
techniques to induce a sense of comfort in the substance/drug addiction,for, craving is not for the
intake of substance/drug, but for the pleasure(pleasurable sensations) that the person gets after intake
of a particular substance/drug.
So here Vipassana Meditation can be effective, for, it helps the person to understand the
impermanence nature of all (bodily) sensations, be it unpleasurable or pleasurable ones. Thereby with
practice of Vipassana, the person gradually develops a sense of perfect Equanimity of mind, so there
will be no aversion for unpleasurable sensations and no Craving for pleasurable sensations. Thus, with
practice of Vipassana the addict can come out of his addiction, permanently.

Key words: Addiction, Craving, Vipassana, Meditation, Relapses, Equanimity
