Dear Brothers and Sisters in Recovery,
I am privileged to be the founder of Recovery Through Torah. This is a 12-Step counseling service that offers absolute anonymity to individuals who are suffering from the disease of addiction.
One of the basic teachings of 12-Step Recovery is " I am a good person with a bad disease".
Addiction is a disease; like any disease, it has nothing to do with the Yetzer Harah. Much as a diabetic can live a productive life by taking a medically prescribed daily dose of insulin, so too, can an addict live a productive life by adhering to the principles of 12-Step Recovery, one day at a time.
I look forward to the privilege of guiding you through the path of 12-Step Recovery which ultimately leads to the gift of serenity - MENUCHAT HANEFESH
