With a diverse range of licensed and accredited Mental Health professionals specializing in alcoholism and drug addiction, The Jerusalem Sober House provides each individual with a specific treatment plan. Our program includes Individual therapy, group therapy, addictions counseling, case management, and 24-hour support.
Each resident receives a minimum of one individual therapy session per week. These sessions may be scheduled throughout the day/evening based on the individual resident’s schedule. Our therapeutic staff is trained in many different modalities and provide each resident with the treatment best suited to them.
Group therapy is held 2-3 evenings a week and is facilitated by our dedicated staff. These groups include topics such as Addiction, Trauma, Gratitude, Expressive Art, Psychotherapy, Interpersonal relationships and 12-Step work. The group setting facilitates stronger relationships between our residents as well as providing a safe place for each individual to be able to relate to, and learn from, others in the same situation.
Each resident also receives a minimum of one individual Addiction Counseling session per week. Our addiction counseling focuses on identifying, as well as changing, the patterns of behavior involved in drug abuse and other addictions. Focus is also given to any traumatic events that may have led to those behaviors.
Daily goal setting and recovery based group led by Counselors, guided by recovery literature.
12 Step Meetings
The 12-Step model of Alcoholics Anonymous forms a strong basis for the recovery model that we use. In order to facilitate this, we require all residents to attend all in-house meetings as well as a minimum of 2 weekly meetings outside of the house. Jerusalem, and the surrounding areas, offer a strong AA and NA fellowship in both English and Hebrew. Residents are encouraged to immerse themselves in the local recovery community not only for their benefit but also to strengthen the growing recovery community at large.
The Jerusalem Sober House has established working relationships with a team of highly trained doctors, psychiatrists and many other mental health specialists. All dual-diagnosis residents not currently under psychiatric care will be referred to the appropriate English-speaking specialists. Participation in our program is predicated on proper management of mental health issues and all residents are required to maintain care under the proper medical health professional. The staff of the JSH provides oversight in these cases and maintains a constant working and open relationship between ourselves and any other medical professional giving care to our residents.
