Refuge Recovery is a proven practice, a process, a set of tools, a treatment, and a path to healing addiction.
Refuge Recovery is a Buddhist-oriented, nontheistic recovery program that does not ask anyone to believe anything, only to trust the process and do the hard work of recovery. In fact, no previous experience or knowledge of Buddhism is required.
When sincerely practiced, the program will ensure a full recovery from addiction and a lifelong sense of well-being and happiness.
Our primary purpose is to offer a Buddhist- inspired path to recovery from addiction of all kinds. Our group recognizes and respects that there are multiple perspectives and multiple approaches to recovery; we are gathered in the spirit of investigation of a Buddhist approach.
We do not claim to be the only authority, but we know from direct experience that the path outlined in the Four Truths leads to the end of the suffering that addiction causes. We invite you to investigate and practice these truths and to find out for yourself if they are valuable to your process of recovery.
It is the intention of this group to explore Buddhist perspectives on recovery. This group is meant to be a support for recovery, not as a substitute for your dedicated practice; spiritual growth and recovery require individual effort.
