The Primary Residential Treatment program is tailored to residents in their first 90-120 days of recovery. The program includes individual and group counseling, therapy, spiritual counseling, Shabbat and Jewish holiday services, and an introduction to Alcoholics Anonymous and the principles of the 12-Steps. Beit T'Shuvah provides an array of group instruction: covering such topics as substance abuse education, relapse prevention, AA step study, Jewish ethics, relationships, life skills, health, anger management, conflict resolution, personal responsibility, and hygiene. Primary residents are also offered the opportunity to participate in our Complementary Programs, which include a wide array of creative programming such as: choir, recording studio sessions, theater arts (Freedom Song), organic gardening, and more. Recognizing that substance abuse is not only a disease of the mind, soul, and spirit, but of the body as well, Beit T'Shuvah primary residents can also engage in activities like yoga, fitness training, surf therapy, snowboarding and the LA Marathon our "Run To Save A Soul" team and training program.
Day patient treatment is often a transition to Primary Residential Treatment , on-site treatment care is tailored to fit each individual's needs. Care ranges from weekly individual counseling sessions to full participation in daily groups, individual therapy, Shabbat services, and Torah study.
Extended Residential Treatment
After 90-120 days in treatment, Beit T'Shuvah residents graduate to our Extended Residential Treatment program. During this phase of recovery, residents are encouraged to resume work and to take on the responsibility of contributing to their cost of care. Residents continue to participate in counseling, therapy, Torah study, and 12-Step work. Located on a separate floor of the Beit T'Shuvah campus, residents of this community-within-a-community enjoy autonomy while still receiving the healing presence of the greater community.
Off Campus Transitional Living
By the time a resident is ready to complete the Extended Residential Treatment program, it is anticipated that the resident's awareness and acceptance of their commitment to recovery is sufficient to maintain a recovery plan with a greater level of independence. For our graduates, Beit T'Shuvah offers off-site housing within walking distance of our main campus. These residents are encouraged to facilitate their transition into life by paying rent, managing their own work and social lives, while still living within a supportive and loving sober community.
Alumni After Care
Recovery from addiction is a life-long process that requires ongoing vigilance. Upon completion of our program, Beit T'Shuvah alumni are encouraged to remain active participants in our community. Unique from its rehab counterparts, Beit T'Shuvah continues as a resource beyond graduation with the celebration of sober birthdays, annual alumni events, family education and multi-family groups, as well as invitations to Beit T'Shuvah's numerous events and functions.
