Come check out a safe welcoming environment with a different approach.
This group offers a Buddhist perspective on the healing process of addictive behaviors. The group is open to people suffering from all types of addictions, including substances (food, alcohol, smoking, drugs, etc.), and behaviors (co-dependency, sex, gambling, anger, etc.). We offer a safe, confidential, non-judgmental environment, open to people of all spiritual beliefs and backgrounds.
"My biggest obstacle was the fact that I never believed that I could ever stop drinking. No one in my family had managed to overcome this disease, so why would I be any different. Coming to this path has transformed my life. We change the world one person at a time beginning with ourselves. Reclaim your power. Reclaim your life. Everything is possible now."
"All my life I have suffered from social anxiety and low self worth. These issues made my world small and sad. Because of the support I received from Mindful recovery, my heart opened up to myself and to the people around me. I found out that I am not unique and I am not alone. Every Sunday afternoon we come together. We welcome everyone who finds their way to our meeting."
The fifth householder precept is “to refrain from intoxicating substances.”
