As a Jewish addiction treatment center, Beit T’Shuvah has been immersed in a 30-year study of what we call human brokenness –What we have found is that the destructive behavior of addiction and crime are truly the most severe symptoms of a deeper brokenness, the inability to integrate our contradictory selves. We have found that the antidote to this human dilemma is contained in a deeply personal and relevant Judaism. It is a Judaism that understands the Torah as a guide to living as complete human beings.The Elaine Breslow Institute at Beit T’Shuvah has been created to transmit and share these Torah lessons of redemption and how they can lead each one of us on a path toward wholeness.
