Viewing addiction as cravings in the mind and body, Noah Levine shows how a path of meditative awareness can alleviate those desires and ease suffering. Refuge Recovery includes daily meditation practices, written investigations that explore the causes and conditions of our addictions, and advice and inspiration for finding or creating a community to help you heal and awaken. Practical yet compassionate, Levine's successful Refuge Recovery system is designed for anyone interested in a non-theistic approach to recovery.

I love this book and have been participating in Refuge Recovery meetings for over a year. I misread the advertisement for the audible version and thought Noah Levine would be narrating. The narrator is not aware of the correct Pali pronunciations, and I am unable to listen to this.
