Jews in Recovery Find Friendship and Inspiration at Michigan Retreat

Experts in the field of addiction agree that a strong support system is one of the most important components of long-term recovery, but creating and maintaining an effective network is often difficult amid the daily demands of work, family and personal obligations. For Jewish individuals and families who struggle with addiction and its far-reaching consequences, the annual Jewish recovery retreat sponsored by the Daniel B. Sobel Friendship House in Michigan provides a welcome respite that helps participants strengthen their connections to their recovery, their Judaism and each other. About 40 people gathered last month at the Butzel Retreat Center in Ortonville, Mich., to enjoy the fourth annual weekend of workshops, nature walks, early-morning exercise and delicious meals in a setting surrounded by woods and wildlife.
