Every addiction recovery journey is unique…while also sharing common experiences and concerns. The Senior Sobriety Support Group is a compassionate, confidential time to talk about the uniqueness as well as the commonality of being a Jewish older adult in recovery. In addition, we will read and discuss materials by Jewish recovery thought leaders, such as Rabbi Dr. Abraham Twerski, Harriet Rosetto, Rabbi Mark Borovitz, and Rabbi Paul Steinberg.

We will discuss the Communication Bill of Rights and strategies that can foster and support their communication needs.
