Refuge Recovery is a mindfulness-based addiction recovery program and community that utilizes Buddhist philosophy as the foundation of the recovery process.
Drawing inspiration from the core teachings of the Four Noble Truths, emphasis is placed on both knowledge and empathy as a means for overcoming addiction and its causes.
Those struggling with substance abuse greatly benefit when they are able to understand the suffering that addiction has created while developing compassion for the pain they have experienced.
These meetings are appropriate for anyone in recovery, or interested in recovery. No meditation experience is necessary.
