WHAT WE DO
The Jerusalem Sober House is intended to meet the needs of individuals who are seeking a “sober and clean” residence with a supportive therapeutic program. The program is designed to be an essential transitional step in the individual’s journey to return to society as a sober, stronger, productive person. Our mission is to facilitate the acquisition of tools for recovery and to encourage a sense of independence for each resident.
Some of the services we provide include:
- Tools to build a foundation for long lasting recovery
- Individual therapy
- Group therapy
- Family therapy
- Specialized individual attention
- Life skills training
- Relapse prevention
- Educational, vocational and volunteer planning
- Aftercare planning
12 STEP MEETINGS
There is also a strong emphasis on attending 12 step meetings.12 Step meetings are offered both in and out of the house. Residents attend all in-house meetings and are encouraged to attend a minimum of 2 weekly meetings outside of the house. This strengthens both the resident’s recovery and the growing Jerusalem AA and NA recovery community.
With a diverse range of licensed and accredited Mental Health professionals specializing in alcoholism and drug addiction, JSH provides each individual with a specific treatment plan. We work within the 12 step model in conjunction with an intensive therapeutic framework.

“Educate the youth according to his way” (Proverbs 22:6)
The Jerusalem Sober House is sensitive to all clients’ levels of religious observance. Our facility is shomer Shabbat (Sabbath observant) and kosher. We expect all our residents to respect and observe these laws within the house. Beyond this, we respect our residents and understand they will practice Judaism at the level most comfortable for them. Our goal is not to promote religion but to promote and maintain sobriety. Many of our clients find this easier to achieve within a religious framework, in an environment where they can work on their recovery without compromising their religious practice.
The staff at the Jerusalem Sober House works to help guide the residents on their unique paths while providing for their physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual needs. Jewish identity can play an important role in their addiction and recovery process. Connection to heritage and/or practice can reinforce the 12-step concept of a relationship with a “higher power.” This can provide meaningful support for people struggling to achieve and maintain sobriety.Please share this post!
