Recovery Dharma offers a trauma-informed, empowered approach to recovery based on Buddhist principles. Our program is peer-led and non-theistic. We welcome all those who wish to pursue recovery as part of our community.
The readings below highlight the practices of our program. Each concept provides an opportunity to deepen understanding, explore personal inquiry, and connect with others.
Recovery Dharma is founded on, and inspired by, Buddhism that originated in India and later on flourished in other regions of Asia (e.g., South Asia, East Asia, Southeast Asia, Central Asia). We deeply appreciate the Buddhist heritage that was protected and freely offered by the ancestors of these cultures.
Recovery Dharma Global is a nonprofit organization that maintains a list of Recovery Dharma meetings, shares materials, and organizes events to explore and strengthen the Recovery Dharma program.

Sometimes they organize geographically, such as around a city or region. Other times they organize by topics of recovery, affinity groups or circles of interest. Intersanghas are autonomous. (self-governing).
