A Jewish Therapeutic Community for Treatment of Addictions
By Natti Ronel Gila Hen Uri Timor Etti Elisha
Click to Enlarge

How can we deal with the spread of addiction in modern Israel and its appearance in social groups that were formerly considered immune: educated, economically established families, religious and ultra-religious sectors? How is it possible to assist addicts, whether they be adolescents or adults, men or women, to return from a life of addiction to one of purpose and activity, direction and meaning? The therapeutic community ``Retorno,`` located in a pastoral countryside setting near Beit Shemesh, offers a unique solution. According to ``Retorno`` (``return`` in Spanish – a symbol of the return to life), addiction is a mistaken attempt to solve existing distress that only intensifies the problem. Retorno, a uniqe, orthodox Jewish therapeutic community that treats religious as well as non-religious addicts and even non-Jews, offers a new, genuine solution that resolves the distress and takes the addict on a personal journey that touches on all aspects of addiction: behavioral, emotional and spiritual. This book tells the story of Retorno in simple, fluent language, describing and focusing on the world of recovering addicts. The book is based on a research project conducted by the Department of Criminology, Bar-Ilan University
