Abstract:

Introduction: The present study is an attempt to examine “the efficacy of Progressive Muscle Relaxation on depression, anxiety, irritability and insomnia in Opioid dependent prisoner patients”. Individuals with Opioid disorders are at risk for the development of anxiety, depression, irritability, insomnia, tremors especially during withdrawal; one of the ways our body responds is with muscle tension. Progressive muscle relaxation is a method that helps to relieve the tension. 
Methodology: A purposive random sample of 54 Opioid dependent prisoners between age group of 25 – 50 years, admitted in Psychiatry IPD of Geetanjali Medical College & Hospital, Udaipur (Raj.)  
Tools: Irritability, Depression, Anxiety Scale (Snaith et al. (1978) was used to measure irritability, depression and anxiety & Athens Insomnia Scale (Soldatos and colleagues, 2000) was used to assesses the severity of insomnia. 
Sampling technique: Purposive Random Sampling
Statistical analysis: t- test
Results: The results of t- test showed that, there exists a significant difference in pre and post scores of irritability, anxiety, depression and insomnia in Group A, B & C.
Discussion: The difference between the pre and post test of Progressive Muscle Relaxation + Pharmacotherapy Interventions (Group – B), only PMR Interventions (Group C) is same as that of the pre and post test of only pharmacotherapy interventions (Group – A). Progressive Muscle Relaxation Therapy was a systematic therapy for reducing the symptoms and achieving a deep state of relaxation.
