Torah and the Twelve Steps
Torah and the Twelve Steps, Inc is a spiritually based action oriented drug and alcohol rehab which integrates the spirituality within Torah Judaism with the Twelve Step model to effectively treat the underlying cause of addiction. Our adult male and female thirty to ninety day primary program with extended care is open to all persons regardless of religious background or faith who would like to experience genuine Biblical based teachings while on their spiritual journey. Our program provides an inner sense of wholeness, pleasure and purposeful direction that replaces the subjective need for “filling the void” whereby the desire for the substance is significantly if not entirely removed.
Rabbi Israel Burns, MS, RMHCI who has practiced extensively as a therapist for dual-diagnosis, has spent over thirteen years in full-time advanced theological studies both in Miami and Israel. A happily married family man, he holds a Masters Degree in Substance Abuse Counseling from Nova University. Rabbi Burns has been the spiritual director in several leading treatment programs for Substance Abuse and Eating Disorders. His classes on Jewish spirituality and the 12 Steps are well known within the local recovery community. With over twenty-five years of direct intervention in the lives of addicts, Rabbi Israel Burns works intensively with each individual to identify exactly what is needed to initiate and maintain spiritual growth. He will specify the source of past personal attempts and/or treatment failures within the first week and develop a precise and definitive plan for permanent recovery.
The concept that addiction is a relapsing medical condition is often utilized as an excuse for treatment failures by assuming a certain level of “randomness” in the relapse. To blame a “relapsing disease” takes away responsibility both from the treatment program and the client to learn to make needed changes. Relapse is caused by a lack of spiritual development and we believe as providers of a spiritual solution we need to teach our clients that recovery is completely and directly dependent on the integrity of their spiritual program.
Torah and the Twelve Steps, Inc is a not for profit corporation (501C3). We are exclusively focused on the recovery process thus eliminating unnecessary costs and any excessive for profit motive. The sanctity of our work takes precedence. Our primary purpose is further outreach through spiritual counseling and education to; provide timeless proven methods for awaking the inner potential, while demonstrating the highest ethical standards.
