  Welcome to buddhistrecovery.org

This is the official website of the Buddhist Recovery Network.

The Buddhist Recovery Network promotes the use of Buddhist teachings and practices to help people recover from the suffering caused by addictive behaviors and is open to people of all backgrounds, and respectful of all recovery paths.

 The Buddhist Recovery Network is in solidarity with the African American populations.      

  • We will not stay quiet in the face of public modern day lynchings of Black and Brown Bodies.
  • We will not be silent over the racial injustices that are prevalent in the USA, Canada, UK and many other countries in Europe.
  • In moving forward we want to be an organization that has Diversity, Inclusion and Equity at the heart of our mission.
  • We aspire to support recovery groups that prioritize the needs of Black and Indigenous People of Color
  • We will work to support creating safer spaces where people from these and other marginalized populations are safe and welcome in all recovery meetings.
