Other info:

The Eight Step Recovery support group will cover the teachings of Vimalasara Valerie Mason-John and Dr. Paramabandhu Groves from their book Eight Step Recovery. Compliments all recovery programs including 12 Steps, SMART recovery et al.

We practice meditation, and work through the book. All are welcome, not just those with a drug or alcohol related addiction. 

Addiction is defined as any behavior, substance-related or not, that brings temporary pleasure or relief, a behavior one craves but is unable to stop despite negative consequences. We hope this group will be a support for you in your recovery and that it will lead you to a happier, more fulfilling way of life.
