Refuge Recovery is a mindfulness-based addiction treatment program that utilizes Buddhist philosophy as the cornerstone of the curriculum.

The program blends Buddhist philosophy, traditional psychotherapy, and adjunctive modalities including individual and group therapies, mindfulness-based relapse prevention, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), eye movement desensitization reprocessing (EMDR), integrative somatic experiencing, attachment theory, internal family systems work, somatic-based meditation, yoga, experiential therapies, motivational interviewing and coaching, art therapy, poetry, anger management, mindfulness-based living skills, and intensive writing workshops.  Trauma and PTSD-resolution groups provide a safe environment for people to learn to self-regulate and process the suffering caused by their addiction and trauma.

Individualized treatment plans include one-on-one sessions with a psychiatrist, psychotherapist, and personal case manager to ensure both a linear continuity of care and optimum recovery efficacy. As clients progress through our program, they regain clarity, mindfulness, and full restoration of choice.


Most clients seeking sobriety will first require a safe detoxification from drugs and alcohol. The process of detoxification is different for each client and Refuge Recovery Centers will provide an individualized assessment to determine the appropriate level of care for each client. Assessment is based on the client’s history: drug-of-choice, length of use, physical health, age and mental status. Our doctor will determine which medications may be necessary for an appropriate safe and comfortable detox.

At the Detox/Residential level of care we also provide 24 hour nursing and tech staff, medication management,  case management, drug testing, treatment planning.

Daily groups may include meditation instructions, restorative yoga, process groups, relapse prevention, addiction psychoeducation, nuerobiology of addiction, and introduction to somatic stabilization.

By surrounding yourself in a positive environment with like-minded individuals working toward the common goal of a sober lifestyle, success is significantly more assured. Transitional living communities offer the invaluable asset of “one addict helping another,” allowing the recovery process to come full circle. Success rates for sobriety nearly triple when a minimum 6-month transitional living stay is incorporated as part of a recovery treatment.
