Addiction is a symptom of divided self; an unhealthy dependence on substances or compulsive activities to provide a temporary sense of wholeness and well-being. It is a "dis-ease" of body, mind, soul and spirit. Recovery therefore requires an integrative approach. The Integrative Recovery Model at Beit T'Shuvah is a unique blend of Jewish spirituality, cognitive behavioral therapy, 12-step philosophy and the creative arts. The ambiance of the residential setting is both a therapeutic and welcoming community.
