    A Buddhist Based 12 Step program developed by Noah Levine, founder of Against the Stream.

    Refuge Recovery follows the traditional Buddhist model of the Four Noble Truths:
    1. Addiction creates suffering “We take stock of all the suffering we have experienced and caused as addicts”

    2. The cause of addiction is repetitive craving “We investigate the causes and conditions that lead to addiction and begin the process of letting go.”

    3. Recovery is possible “We come to understand that recovery is possible and
    take refuge in the path that leads to the end of addiction”

    4. The path to recovery is available “We engage in the process of the Eightfold Path that leads to recovery”

    The Eightfold Path
    1. Wise Understanding
    2. Wise Intention
    3. Wise Communication / Community
    4. Wise Action
    5. Wise Livelihood / Service
    6. Wise Effort
    7. Wise Mindfulness
    8. Wise Concentration
