Specialization

  • Residential Treatment

    Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.
  • 12-Step

    The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.

  • Harriet Rossetto
    Harriet RossettoFounder and Executive Vice President
    Harriet Rossetto is a rebel spirit. A self-professed misfit, who felt she was operating her life on the fringe, it is there that she found her fierce calling: helping broken souls and changing a broken system. Harriet was blessed with a missionary spirit and a skeptical mind, which were often at war with one another. Harriet's belief that addiction is a malady of the soul that requires spiritual healing inspired her to create a community that for 25 years has supported the process of recovery. She has become something of a Relationship Guru, nurturing budding and fragile families. For Harriet, the greatest reward is witnessing and participating in the miracle of transformation. Her living message is that everyone is capable of redemption, which is why she empowers the residents of Beit T'Shuvah with employment, hiring 90% of her staff from within. Today they are the lifeblood of the organization.

Beit T Shuvah gave me a second chance at life and I recommend them to anyone with a billon stars! I had a wonderful treatment team that was saving my life and teaching me all different kinds of tools for recovery, spiritually, emotionally, physically, relationally, and mentally. Can’t say enough about the Medical team. Some of the groups I really enjoyed were anger management group, Elenas Inner Child group , Marcus Trauma group, Harriets Relationship Group, and Saks Life Skills Group in EC. Most importantly it’s the front liners, the PFs whom were always there for me , I have so much gratitude for them. They were always there for a shoulder to cry on, or when I needed to vent or just random advice. I could always count on them. When I read a review for TX I want to know what people likes so much about the program, I hope if your reading my review I gave you a little insight about Why I loved BTS so much,. BTS is about community, spirituality, friendship and recovery. Come see for yourself!!

Beit T’Shuvah in a nut shell..... There are many people there that do care and genuinely want to help as many people as they can. Then there are people who just get buy.The worst ones of all are the people who say they care and treat you like they care but in reality THEY DONT They boast being a community but there not The only time they treat you as one is when you have something for them and what not. There is no true transpericy there the worst of all the Rabbi with his schpeals about being genuine when he has not been genuine most of his adult life. Then there are the puppets who drank the juice and do as there told not even caring about it and to top it off their under qualified for the position they hold so they mean well but their to full of fake people.

    It is a lifetime commitment. Once you stop working the program, you easily go back to your demons. Spiritual.
