Buddhism and Recovery

Buddhism is a path to freedom from all forms of suffering. All suffering originates in the addictive quality of the mind and our habitual tendency to grasp at pleasure and push away pain. This is the first and second noble truths of the Buddha. All unenlightened beings experience craving for pleasure and aversion to pain, but those of us whom have become addicted to pleasure producing substances or behaviors have an even more extreme form of repetitive craving, that usually includes a disregard for the negative consequences of satisfying such cravings.


The Buddhist path offers a spiritual and psychological process of transformation that has proven to be a most effective treatment for our human addiction to the mind and all the suffering we create when we obey the cravings the mind and body produce. Buddhist meditation is the most potent tool there is for recovering our freedom and finding a wise relationship to pleasure and pain.
