It is a lifetime commitment. Once you stop working the program, you easily go back to your demons. Spiritual.

The non-punitive flexible and individual needs approach makes this place unusual, interesting, and effective.

It is the only long term treatment facility that gets to the core of the individual person and work on the issues at hand.


Areas of Focus
Residential Treatment

Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.

12-Step

The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.

    Harriet Rossetto - Founder and Executive Vice President

    Harriet Rossetto is a rebel spirit. A self-professed misfit, who felt she was operating her life on the fringe, it is there that she found her fierce calling: helping broken souls and changing a broken system. Harriet was blessed with a missionary spirit and a skeptical mind, which were often at war with one another. Harriet's belief that addiction is a malady of the soul that requires spiritual healing inspired her to create a community that for 25 years has supported the process of recovery. She has become something of a Relationship Guru, nurturing budding and fragile families. For Harriet, the greatest reward is witnessing and participating in the miracle of transformation. Her living message is that everyone is capable of redemption, which is why she empowers the residents of Beit T'Shuvah with employment, hiring 90% of her staff from within. Today they are the lifeblood of the organization.

    Rabbi Mark Borovitz - CEO, Head Rabbi

    Officially ordained ten years ago at the University of Judaism with a Master's in Rabbinic Literature, Rabbi Mark Borovitz combined his knowledge of Torah and street smarts to shape his calling: helping recovering addicts find their way in the world. Spiritual Leader, Head Rabbi, COO, and overall anomaly, he is able to reach both the addict and the congregant, and de-stigmatize this life threatening disease. Rabbi Mark's leadership is unparalleled. Community members, addicts, educators, dignitaries, and executives all seek his wisdom; a blend of acute savvy and rabbinic teachings. When working with residents, he is living proof that change is possible; when speaking to the congregant, he stands for hope that every man has a higher purpose.
