Addiction is a symptom of a divided self; an unhealthy dependence on substances or compulsive activities to provide a temporary sense of wholeness and well-being. Through a community rooted in the spiritual principles of Judaism, authenticity, and transparency, Beit T'Shuvah members are taught to live in concert with their own inner value, dignity, and Kedusha - Holiness. Using both traditional and nontraditional approaches, Beit T'Shuvah believes everyone has the right to redemption, and practices never turning a single soul away due to their inability to pay... allowing for all who wish, to make T'Shuvah.
Our mission is to guide individuals and families towards a path of living well, so that wrestling souls can recover from addiction and learn how to properly heal. The Beit T'Shuvah faith-based model, founded on authenticity and wholeness, integrates spirituality, psychotherapy, Jewish teachings, the 12 Steps, and the creative arts. We are a compassionate, supportive community, devoted to building an empowering sense of belonging and purpose to everyone who seeks it.
Beit T'Shuvah's vision is to raise a new generation. One in which the paradigm of human understanding shifts, so that families can see each member as autonomous and unique. Helping individuals to live well can penetrate both the incidence of addiction and beyond, to any family who struggles at all. Our model, based on authenticity and wholeness, can be applied not solely to treatment centers and family units, but also to any community organization that is willing to look within. Ultimately, we hope to be international educators, pioneering a curriculum that teaches individuals how to live well.
