Accreditation and Licensure:

Beit T’Shuvah is fully accredited by and is licensed by the State of California under the Department of Alcohol and Drug programs.
We have had a lot of success in helping clients on their road to recovery.


The Beit T’Shuvah campus is located in West Los Angeles, just south of the Pico-Robertson area.  The facility is a warm setting where approximately 110 residents interact with clinical staff in a healing atmosphere that emphasizes faith-based recovery and the values of the Jewish community.  Resident rooms are double-occupancy and include attached bathrooms, with men and women’s rooms located in separate buildings of the campus.  An additional private floor houses Independent Living residents, who have graduated the Beit T’shuvah program.  The campus also includes a sanctuary for religious services, separate lounges for men and women, a kitchen and dining room, a full recording studio, a gym with weight systems, on-site career center, several spaces for private therapy sessions, and administrative offices.

Residential In-Patient:

The most important component of the Beit T’shuvah faith-based model of recovery is the spiritual community. It is through this community of study, meditation, prayer and discussion that the residents transition from behavior patterns of perfectionism, failure, isolation and entitlement to life goals of progress, accountability, and gratitude. Residents look to religious archetypes, shared heritage, and communal wisdom for the strength to alter their behavior.

Beit T’Shuvah has many levels of residential treatment, designed to give each resident a unique continuum of care that provides an individualized program within guidelines. Each resident is closely monitored by members of our LEADERSHIP team as he/she progresses throughout the various programs to ensure a healthy transition into a sober life. Residential treatment varies in length according to individual client needs, but typically involves six months’ residence.

Primary Care While in Primary Care, residents benefit from all prongs of our integrative recovery. Upon entering Beit T’shuvah, residents are assigned a staff counselor with expertise in addiction counseling, an individual therapist, and a spiritual counselor from our clergy staff. Residents also participate in group therapy sessions, 12-step meetings, Torah Study, and music process groups.

Additionally, residents have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of activities within our arts in recovery program, including choir, creative writing, and participation in our original musical, freedom song. The Career Center also provides skills assessment and assists residents in location occupational training/placement and educational opportunities as each resident progresses through the Primary Care program. A full time career counselor works with Beit T’Shuvah residents and alumni to prepare them to re-enter the workforce. Services include career assessments, vocational training and job placement. The Career Center includes a complete resource library as well as access to the internet and World Wide Web.

Sober Living The Sober Living program is open to individuals with over four months of recovery. Residents resume work and pay rent while still participating in therapy, Torah Study, and 12-step meetings.

Independent Living Apartment-style living, located on a separate floor of the Beit T’shuvah campus, is available to graduates of the Beit T’shuvah program. Residents of this community-within-a-community enjoy private rooms and autonomy while still having the healing presence of the greater Beit T’shuvah community and the option of participating in community activities.

Outpatient Treatment:

As part of our continued and growing commitment to offering a complete continuum of care, we have now instituted affordable outpatient counseling for not only individuals, couples and families within the Beit T’Shuvah community, but also from the wider Jewish community. We address the needs of families who can benefit from individual treatment and education whether they are connected to our program or not.

Day Patient Day patient treatment is tailored fit to each individual’s needs. Care ranges from individual weekly sessions to full participation in daily groups, individual therapy, Shabbat services and Torah study. Individuals are admitted to day-patient treatment at staffs’ discretion.

Alumni Aftercare:

Recovery from addiction is a life-long process that requires constant vigilance. Ironically, the risk of relapse for the addict is greatest when he achieves his goals and appears to be thriving. The external trappings of success feed into the addicts’ denial system, allowing him to believe that he is “normal” and therefore exempt from the required daily actions to maintain sobriety. It is necessary to keep alumni connected with one another and Beit T’Shuvah to remind them of the dangers of relapse. Therefore, Beit T’Shuvah provides:

  • Two weekly men’s alumni groups
  • Alumni Torah study for men and women
  • One woman’s alumni group
  • Training program for alumni to volunteer as paraprofessional counselors
  • Individual and spiritual counseling as needed
  • Social, recreational, and spiritual events that keep Alumni connected to the Beit T’Shuvah community.

  1. Is there a recommendation you can make to me. I am in an out-patient program here in San Diego which may be closing due to city budget problems and I want to continue in a group of some kind. I am not addicted to substances but I am bi-polar and OCD on medications but will need some on going support. If I move to Israel is there any suggestion you can make for me?

    Thank you,


  2. I’m literally dying to get in to Beit T’Shuvah! Living in South Florida, struggling with recovery, trying to make ends meet….PLEASE..NEED HELP! I can get there but can’t afford to pay for services. Nice Jewish Boy, originally from Philadelphia. I have been beating myself up for too many years. Any suggestions would be heaven-sent.

    Interested in receiving information regarding the program. My fiance’ Robert Hernandez at ISP is finally going before the board after 21yrs. He needs a letter of acceptance and to hear more about your program. I have opened an account with Yahoo specifically for him to receive email. Please feel free to send it ther or write him directly which I believe would really make him feel so much supported. Thank you and may God truly bless you.
    Grace and Robert.

  4. Hello,

    my mother attended best t’shuvah years ago. Now she is doing amazingly well and I wanted to stay thank you for that.

    However, I was hoping I could receive some information about your outpatient program. My boyfriend is struggling with an addiction and I was referred by my mother and my rabbi to contact you for information.

    Thank you,
