COVID-19

Update: June 1st, 2020

BTS Response to COVID-19

Beit T’Shuvah is a community. We aim to continue the spirit and services of Beit T’Shuvah during this time. The safety of our staff and residents remain our priority as does our mission of healing those suffering from addiction and destructive behaviors. We are still available to our community and are committed to helping those who need spiritual guidance. We are doing our best in these uncertain times to keep our community safe, which means that we may not be able to be in close physical proximity. As we strive to offer the best and safest care for our current residents, we thank you for cooperating with the protective measures that we have put in place.

On-site Treatment and Visitation

8831 Venice remains CLOSED to the public. This means only current residents and essential staff are allowed on property.

  • This applies to ALL outside visitors including immediate relatives of current residents.
  • Many staff continue to work off-site and can be easily reached via email and regular office phone numbers that are being redirected to their off-site work location. For more information or to be connected to a staff member both on and off-site, please contact our front desk at 310-204-5200.


Admissions:
We are slowly beginning to accept new clients into our residential treatment program. For more information on our admissions and intake process during this time, go to btsrecovery.org or call 310-204-5200 and ask to speak to admissions.

Community Programming

All of Beit T’Shuvah’s community programming is being offered virtually despite the recent House of Worship orders. As we are a congregate living facility, ensuring the safety of our residents remains our top priority.

  • This includes ALL of our events and meetings, including but not limited to: Friday Night Services, Saturday Morning Services, 12-Step Meetings, donor engagement/events, sponsors, therapy-only clients, campus tours, Adult Education, High Holiday Services (more info coming), etc.

Most programming is being offered virtually, and we continue to add more programming and resources each week. To view all of our virtual programming, go to www.beittshuvah.org/bts-events/virtual/ or visit us on social media (@beittshuvah).

Thrift Store

BTS Thrift Store, as well as the donations line, has restored regular business hours (10am-6pm) for in-person shopping. All customers and employees are required to wear face masks and observe social distancing and CDC guidelines. The thrift store is located at 10409 Washington Blvd. Culver City, CA 90232 and the donations line can be reached at 310-204-4669. We are also offering hand-selected merchandise for sale online- please visit www.beittshuvah.org/bts-events/virtual for more information.

Addiction doesn’t stop because of a pandemic.

Like many local businesses and non-profits, Beit T’Shuvah has been heavily financially impacted by COVID-19. For over thirty years, Beit T’Shuvah has been able to balance mission over money and provide long-term addiction treatment to those who desperately need it, regardless of their financial ability. In order for us to continue this critical work, we need the financial support of our community now more than ever. If you are able to contribute in any way, please go to www.beittshuvah.org/donate or contact our Development Director, Nancy Grant at NGrant@beittshuvah.org.
