We are here to help lift each other up, encourage one another, and just be there to lend an ear, and a helping hand. We are NOT here to judge! We are spreading awareness that we DO recover, one day at a time! Keep in mind addiction comes in many forms, not just drugs or alcohol. I.e. food, sex, shopping, gambling etc. Feel free to post whatever you would like. You do NOT have to be an addict to become a member.

About: Refuge Recovery is a practice, a process, a set of tools, a treatment and a path to healing addiction and the suffering caused by addiction. The main inspiration and guiding philosophy for the Refuge Recovery program are the teachings of Siddharta Gautama, a man who lived in India twenty-five hundred years ago. Siddharta was a radical psychologist and spiritual revolutionary. Our program does not ask anyone to believe anything, only to trust the process and to do the hard work of recovery. Our program is a systematic approach to treating and recovering from all forms of addiction using the traditional buddhist practices of the Four Noble Truths and the Eightfold Path.
