Refuge Recovery is a mindfulness-based addiction recovery community that practices and utilizes Buddhist philosophy as the foundation of the recovery process. Drawing inspiration from the core teachings of the Four Noble Truths, emphasis is placed on both knowledge and empathy as a means for overcoming addiction and its causes. Those struggling with any form of addiction greatly benefit when they are able to understand the suffering that addiction has created while developing compassion for the pain they have experienced. We hope to serve you, and meet you on the path.
Please note: RR group leaders are assigned at monthly RR business meetings. These facilitators are not empowered Buddhist teachers or approved facilitators for Against the Stream Nashville, but instead, are trusted peers from the larger RR community.
