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.

- 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.
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.
