Residential Treatment for Addiction
• Beit T’Shuvah both a residential treatment center and a full-service congregation offering religious services, holiday celebrations and study. The treatment approach includes Jewish spirituality, 12 Step recovery and psychotherapy.
• Phoenix House a residential treatment program for those who are trying to break the cycle of substance abuse. Provides group therapy, individual counseling, and a variety of other services in both residential and outpatient settings.
• Most support groups derive from the 12-Step model initially developed by Bill W., Dr. Bob, and the other founders of Alcoholics Anonymous. The 12 steps are described here. In general, 12-step programs believe that recovery requires first acknowledging one’s addiction—that one is helpless in the face of one’s addiction—and seeking help from an outside power, which is commonly understood as God, though 12-step fellowships are not connected with any particular denomination or religious or spiritual organization and do not require any specific creed or statement of belief from their members. One then examines one’s past actions and specifically mistakes, looking to find ways to make amends to those one has harmed, to learn a new way of living without addiction, and helping others on their own paths to recovery.
• A completely secular alternative to 12-Step programs is SMART Recovery®, which was started in Los Angeles in the 1980s and incorporates CBT principles in a self-help format.
