Recovery Dharma is a recovery community that gathers to explore a Buddhist-inspired approach to recovery from addiction of all kinds. We are peer led and welcome all who wish to pursue recovery as part of our community. This is a program of empowerment and doesn’t ask us to believe in anything other than our own potential to change and heal.

We have found a guide for our recovery in the Buddhist teachings of the Four Noble Truths and the Eightfold Path, and we invite you to investigate these practices and principles as tools for your own path of liberation from the suffering of addiction.

This community is our effort to practice kindness, generosity, and peer-to-peer support. This community reflects the diverse experiences of our members; not the opinions of professionals or Buddhist teachers.



Drop by drop is the water pot filled. Likewise, the wise man, gathering it little by little, fills himself with good.

– The Buddha (Dhammapada)


We are a peer-led movement and community that is unified by our trust in the potential of each of us to recover and find freedom from the suffering of addiction. We believe that recovery means empowerment, and we support each other as partners walking the path of recovery together.

Our program uses the Buddhist practices of meditation, self-inquiry, wisdom, compassion, and community as tools for recovery and healing. We believe that recovery is about finding our own inner wisdom and our own path.


Recovery Dharma welcomes anyone who is looking to heal from addiction and addictive behavior, whether it’s caused by substance use or process addictions like codependency, gambling, eating disorders, relationships, technology, or any obsessive or habitual pattern that creates suffering. We’ve found that this Buddhist-inspired path can lead to liberation from the suffering of addiction, and we support you in finding your own path to recovery.



The way is not in the sky. The way is in the heart.
