Refuge Recovery Centers is a unique treatment program that includes detoxification, residential and intensive outpatient services. In addition, we have two transitional living residences located in Hollywood, CA. Our dual diagnosis curriculum combines Buddhist philosophy with clinically driven psychotherapy modules, our course of treatment has been developed to help engage the addicted person on psychodynamic levels.


Refuge Recovery is a safe place for individuals in recovery from alcohol and drug addictions. Our residences provide unique and desirable living accommodations that help individuals repair and heal their relationship with themselves. In cooperation with this interior work, we have hands on managers and resources, unlike any other transitional living environment.

  • When I first started to drink and use drugs it made it easy to connect with other people. In the end of my addiction I was using drugs and alcohol to connect with myself and every else was gone. ‚Ä®Meditation and the process of Refuge Recovery taught me how to reconnect with myself so I can connect with others.

  • Refuge Recovery shows me the path to the end of the suffering created by addiction and gives me the tools I need to navigate that path on a daily basis. The tools of the program and the teachings of the Buddha allow me to experience ordinary life in a relieving and refreshing way - a way which is totally different from any experience I've had in recovery, or in life, up to this point. In the Refuge program, ancient wisdom and modern knowledge reinforce one another and form techniques to build a solid foundation for living. If you have suffered as a sensitive human being in this world, as I have, then I believe you will find great relief in mindfulness, meditation, and the application of the teachings to your recovery and to your life.
