The Jerusalem Sober House begins a “new era” with a “12 Step Oriented Treatment Program” for alcohol and drug addiction in Jerusalem.
After a brace of years together, the Jerusalem Sober House announced this week it is bidding farewell to Rabbi Raphael Salber and starting a “new era” in implementing a “12 Step Oriented Treatment Program” for alcohol and drug addiction.
The House, which serves as a step-down for addicts who are newly in recovery from alcohol and other substance addiction, has been in existence for several years.
Leibish “Big Mike” Gondelman, a founding leader at Jerusalem Sober House, told JewishPress.com he is proud of the programs JSH has put together in the past year, among them a recent special evening with Rabbi Dr. Abraham Twerski.
“We are already creating new treatment programs that center on group therapy and fold in one-on-one personal counseling and therapy sessions,” Gondelman said.
David “Dallas” Margolies is the newest arrival on the staff, he added, bringing his experience running and volunteering with at-risk youth programs in Texas, California, New York and Israel.
Gondelman said his wife, Tatiana has taken over day-to-day operations and business management of JSH “so I can focus on what hundreds of recovering addicts know to be true — the crucial importance of saving lives.”
