Cafe RE

About: Café RE is a community of like-minded individuals who are working together to achieve a new life without alcohol. Quitting drinking alone is nearly impossible, but when surrounded by others who share the same communal goal of an alcohol-free life, it’s not a matter of “if”, but “when” you ditch the booze. The Café RE Facebook groups are private and unsearchable which means that only members of the community can see who’s in the groups and what is being said. Whether you’re looking to quit drinking for a month, a year, or are simply sober curious, you’ll find the support needed to reach your goals in the community.

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.
