Resources for Buddhist Recovery

  • Buddha’s Eightfold Path as a Step Program

    Recovery from addictive behavior in the West is concerned with patterns of addiction and denial. Addiction is simply a more entrenched and intractable form of craving, primarily due to the behavior's immediate effect on the evolved reward circuits in the brain. Denial represents a formidable combination of aversion and delusion that forms the armament and defense of addictive behavior. It is the assertion here that the ideas and exercises of Buddhism are perfectly applicable to recovery from our addictions and have been available as such for a very long time.

  • A Buddhist’s Insight Into The 12 Steps of Recovery

    How does Dharma recovery work? Recovery Dharma is a community of peers that encourages Buddhist-based recovery to addiction. This type of Buddhist addiction recovery brings together those suffering from substance use disorders. The unity and bond shared between members helps them become free from the suffering that addiction has caused.
