    If one were to come hangout at Beit T’Shuvah (and I invite you to) they would probably use one word to describe it...crazy.  Really I shouldn't joke about it, there are weeks when people in our community are suffering and there's a tension in the air,... read on

    One of my favorite things at Beit T’Shuvah is happening tonight: the Beit T’Shuvah talent show. 

    In keeping with the theme of addiction, I want to explain to you why this talent show (which happens every couple of months) is so important.  Residents are allowed to perform... read on

    Enter the accelerator--benzoylmethylecgonine-- a continuation of invigoration. Expeditious-thought with sounds of reverberation and body left debilitated. It’s demonstrating an inability for any shot of stability. Psychosis! It’s perspiration due to locomotion... read on
