Recovery and Family Program
The easiest way to help our patients of the Jewish faith is to allow them redemption while also taking care to respect their faith. We want the addiction recovery process to be as easy as possible for them. They need not worry about violating any covenants of faith while at our South Florida rehab facility.
In addition to offering Kosher foods, at Archstone Behavioral Health, we also encourage fellow Jews to keep Shabbat when interested. We don’t require work on that day. We firmly believe that everyone needs to learn how to shavat va’yinafash (rest and re-soul). Shabbat offers a perfect time to reflect on the teachings of the last week’s treatment and to mentally prepare for the next week on the road to recovery. It also serves as an opportunity to begin working through unresolved past trauma associated with childhood pain.
We also respect the Jewish holidays and understand requirements to spend the day in contemplation, to fast, or to observe other tenants of the Jewish faith. Because we can individualize our treatment programs, we can make adjustments to treatment schedules to accommodate those laws.
With a specialized program for the Jewish community, we can offer unique advantages for your loved one in recovery. They will know they are not alone because we have built up that fellowship that the Jewish community is known for. Our patients feel supported and understood when in a recovery community comprised of their peers. They understand the pressures that may have affected them, in particular, because they are Jewish and come from a complex family structure.
Recovery is possible! We have set up this unique program to give our Jewish patients the best chance they can have of reaching the “Promised Land” of recovery and achieving redemption.
