Kiloby Centre

The Kiloby Center for Recovery is truly a unique and caring environment for the treatment of addiction, anxiety and depression. We are the first primarily mindfulness-based addiction treatment center in the U.S.

The central focus at our center is helping clients settle into the natural rest of the present moment. With the use of the tools from Scott’s book, Natural Rest for Addiction, clients are guided into the deepest and most radical recovery from addiction. The treasure of this way of recovery is that this freedom is found in the one place the addicted mind refuses to look – the present moment!

We have found that all suffering arises through what we call the Velcro Effect, which is the experience of thoughts being stuck together with emotions and sensations. Our mindfulness approach undoes the Velcro Effect on every level of experience, resulting in a radical inner peace and love and a deep acceptance of life as it is.

Our mindfulness approach is not limited to addiction. We work with anyone suffering from anxiety, phobias, stress, depression, self-esteem issues and self-limiting beliefs, painful thoughts and emotions, compulsive behaviors, relationship issues, anxiety around health conditions and chronic pain and a host of other human crises, conditions and situations.

A typical day in our program includes group and private sessions where clients are facilitated through our mindfulness approach and learn to use the tools on their own so that they can experience a lifetime of freedom. This potent combination of tools often results in a radical shift in perspective for clients that eliminates or greatly reduces addiction and other psychological and emotional issues.

We use a step-down model where clients move through the various levels of care (from higher to lower) over a period of time and then slowly transition back into their normal lives when they feel ready. Some clients stay at our sober living house during the entire transition period.

Our programs range from a few weeks up to many months or even a year, depending on your needs. There is a minimum stay of 30 days for most drug and alcohol cases. We encourage 60 to 90 days, as we have found the most success with these longer term programs.

“I wanted to run my 1st week at the Center. I had doubts my second week. But sticking with it was the best decision I have made in life. I am entering real life with new eyes that see from an awareness I never knew existed. I have hope I never felt leaving other centers. Give this place a chance.” Kevin J.



“I am grateful to have been to the Kiloby Center. These practices are on the cutting edge of working with addiction (and other issues) because they so deeply address the root of the problem. Highly recommended!!” Kirsten G.



“I am very grateful to have been a client at the Center. I was not able to live peacefully using my own methods. These 30 days at the Center are just what I needed to start to live the life we are all intended to live -in the present moment and allowing all things to rise and pass through.” Lisa C.
