Refuge Recovery is a community of people who are using the practices of mindfulness, compassion, forgiveness, and generosity to heal the pain and suffering that addiction has caused in our lives and in the lives of our loved ones. The path of practice that we follow is called the Four Truths of Refuge Recovery. The Four Truths of Refuge Recovery is a Buddhist-oriented path to recovery from addictions. It has proven successful with addicts of all kinds who have committed to the Buddhist path of meditation, generosity, kindness, and renunciation. This is an approach to recovery that understands that all beings have the power and potential to free themselves from suffering. We feel confident in the power of the Buddha's teachings, if applied, to relieve suffering of all kinds, including the suffering of addiction. The practices and principles of this program are outlined in the book Refuge Recovery by Buddhist teacher Noah Levine, founder of Dharma Punx and Against the Stream Buddhist Meditation Society.
