Refuge Recovery

Refuge Recovery is grounded in the belief that Buddhist principles and practices create
a strong foundation for the addiction recovery process.  Wisdom and compassion enable
those struggling with any form of addiction to become more mindful of their mental
processes while also developing a deep understanding of the suffering that addiction
has created and compassion for their own path.

Thursdays at 12:30 pm

SMART Recovery

This is a science-based addiction support group where we learn self-empowering skills
and support each other in our recovery.  No matter what your addiction, SMART Recovery
can help you change.

Fridays at 9am

SMART Family and Friends

“SMART Recovery Family & Friends” is a support group designed to provide concerned
significant others the tools they need to effectively support their loved one, without
supporting the addictive behavior. “SMART Recovery Family & Friends” will include
tools for emotional self-management, positive communication, boundary setting, changing
enabling behaviors, dealing with trust issues, and more.

Fridays at 10am

Southeastern Recovery Night

Southeastern Recovery Night is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience,
strength, and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem, and help
others in their struggle with addiction. This Recovery Night is not A.A. or any other
traditional 12- step program. It is however, our desire to recognize and affirm milestones
of recovery in all 12-step programs, as well as addictions for which an appropriate
12-step group may not even exist.

 Wednesdays at 5 pm
