WHAT IS BEIT T’SHUVAH?
Beit T’Shuvah is both a residential treatment center and a supportive, spiritual community that approaches addiction and other destructive behaviors with a groundbreaking model focusing on the integration of the whole self – the mind, body, and spirit. We never turn anyone away due to an inability to pay for treatment, and we work with all clients on a sliding scale. Most importantly, Beit T’Shuvah is a flourishing group of people devoted to living healthy, purposeful lives.
Founded in 1987 by CEO Harriet Rossetto with a grant from FEMA and a loan fromthe Jewish Community Foundation, Beit T’Shuvah began as a transitional home for released Jewish inmates. Harriet’s initial dream was to provide a community of healing that would allow Jewish convicts to successfully integrate back into society. With the unconditional support of community members, including a dedicated Board of Directors, Beit T’Shuvah has grown far beyond its original purpose. Today, we offer 145 beds to adults struggling with various addictions and behaviors, ranging from substance abuse to compulsive gambling.
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 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.
