Geared for highly motivated Jewish addicts after completing in-patient treatment, and 90 days of continuous sobriety, JRC’s recovery houses are the ideal destination. With separate residences for women and men, our sober homes provide the necessary support for individuals who are transitioning back into society. To help insure sustained sobriety, our recommended length of stay is six months.
Unique to Florida, half-way houses offer an additional level of supervision at the fragile and sensitive phase of re-entry. Our Jewish Recovery Center sober homes provide recovering men and women an opportunity for a smooth transition from in-patient treatment, to residing in the real world, in a safe nurturing Jewish environment.
On-call supervision is 24 hours with random drug screening. Candidates should be employed, attending school or engaged in volunteer activities. Residents are encouraged to attend morning meditation, group education and daily 12-step meetings. We offer case management services such as job counseling, referrals to outside mental health professionals when needed, and access to a library of 12-step materials and Jewish texts on culture and spirituality.
It’s a place to call home, located in a secure residential neighborhood within comfortable walking distance to stores and synagogue where residents can attend regularly scheduled services. It’s a community of their peers, where recovering men and women fighting the same battle, can count on emotional support and a common bond in their Jewishness. Our recovery houses are conducive to keeping Kosher and observing Shabbos, many for the first time in their lives. And for others who have lost interest as a result of their addictions, its a place to rediscover and reconnect with Yiddishkeit.
Over the years, our past residents have evolved into a parellel community to Chabad of Boca Raton providing an additional sense of belonging and healing, infused by the warmth of Torah and belonging. The Jewish Recovery Center blends all of these elements together, providing a unique experience in sober community living and Jewish culture. It doesn’t matter if you’re observant, unaffliated or somewhere in between, all are welcome.
