Refuge Recovery - https://refugerecoverymeetings.org/meetings
Refuge Recovery is a Buddhist-oriented, non-theistic recovery program that does not ask anyone to believe anything, only to trust the process and do the hard work of recovery. In fact, no previous experience or knowledge of Buddhism is required. Recovery is possible, and this program provides a systematic approach to treating and recovering from all forms of addiction. When sincerely practiced, the program can ensure a full recovery from addiction and a life-long sense of well-being and happiness.
Ottawa Alcoholics Anonymous
Anyone with a desire to stop drinking is welcome, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, income or profession. And it’s free.
You can just sit and listen and learn more about recovery, or you can share about your situation. It’s completely up to you.
Dr. Gabor Maté, renowned addiction expert, calls for a compassionate approach toward addiction, whether in ourselves or in others.
Dr. Gabor Maté believes that the source of addictions is not to be found in genes but in the early childhood environment.
“Addiction is not a disease. It’s an attempt to solve the problem of emotional pain.”
