Refuge Recovery is a non-theistic, Buddhist-inspired approach to recovery from addictions of all kinds.

We are a community of people dedicated to the practices of mindfulness, compassion, forgiveness, and generosity, using meditation and kindness to heal the pain and suffering that addiction has caused in our lives and the lives of those around us.

Our weekly peer-led meetings include guided meditations, readings from the book Refuge Recovery, and group sharing and discussion.

Open to people of all backgrounds and respectful of all recovery paths, these meetings are appropriate for anyone in, or interested in, recovery from any forms of addictive behavior. No prior meditation experience necessary.

Other info:

Eight Step Recovery is an alternative recovery program to the 12 step program of Alcoholic Anonymous. It uses the Buddhist Teachings to overcome addiction. This Eight Step program  is a set of mindfulness teachings outlining a suggested course of action for recovery from addiction, stinking thinking, negative mental states, and  compulsive and obsessive behaviours.

This program was cofounded by Dr Valerie Mason-John M.A (hon.doc) and Dr Paramabandhu Groves Ph.D. in 2013, and published in their book: “Eight Step Recovery - Using the Buddha's teachings to overcome addiction”.
