Dear T’Shuvah Center community members,
We hope this email finds you safe and healthy.
As we embark on another Shabbat in seclusion, we remain dedicated to our mission of connection, spirituality, and recovery, and want to remind everyone that it is now more important than ever to support and care for each other in this time of crisis.
In addition, below are a variety of ways to stay connected to our community, even from a distance. We hope through this, we can provide
guidance and comfort, strength and love...and if nothing else, a small distraction from the current situation.

Spirituality in Moments of Crisis
Working with people in recovery and addiction is all about managing crisis, building a path of hope, and ultimately creating a life of purpose and authenticity. T’Shuvah Center’s experience in working with people at the lowest point of their lives, managing the unique crisis each person is facing, has taught us many lessons and strategies in dealing with people who live with fear, resentment, and anxiety.
Offering spiritual guidance and strategies on how to create a road map of hope and resilience is what we do best. In this time of uncertainty, we are best suited to help people who feel isolated, fearful, and in need of support. People are facing difficult situations with COVID19 ravaging our communities. T’Shuvah Center is able to offer insight, hope, and relief with the experience we have helping people who struggle.
Lastly, we would like to offer our support in any way we can. Please email us with any questions, comments, or spiritual and recovery needs we may assist you with.
