Please help us afford rehab to save our son

$6,580 of $60,000 raised

raised by 52 people in 10 months

Please help save my son!  I never thought I would need to ask for financial help.

I am middle class, my husband worked full time to support my family and I also work part time.  Now my husband is retired and we are living on his pension.  I never dreamed that my son was suffering from mental illness and addiction.  He attended yeshiva day school, went to a top yeshiva in Israel, seemed to have friends, a normal childhood in an intact family.  At age 18, in his first year in yeshiva in Israel, he was diagnosed with OCD.  That led him to see various therapists and psychiatrists who further diagnosed him with bi-polar disorder, anxiety and depression.  He has been under treatment ever since.  Mental illness is extremely difficult to handle and it has caused him much inner turmoil, leading to addiction to various drugs, from marijuana to heroin, to help drown out his pain.  One of the medications he was taking also became part of his addictions.

B"H he is now in a wonderful program, Torah and the Twelve Steps, that is meeting his needs, finally giving him and us hope.  He entered the program willingly and is determined to turn his life around.  He is making a sincere effort.  My husband and I just returned from seeing him and the program and were very impressed by the effect it has had not only on him but on the other residents as well.  Many of them have been in and out of other programs and have experienced relapses.  The graduates of this program have gone on to be productive members of society, with jobs and famiies and no relapse after many years.  Some were even able to minimize or eliminate entirely their medication after they completed the program.

Torah and the Twelve Steps has been endorsed by some prominent Rebbeim and mental health professionas and more information can be found here: http://torahtwelvesteps.org/

The drawback is the cost: $6,000 per month - prohibitive on my husband's pension.  There is no schedule for recovery. It is truly an individual process and some of the residents have been there for well over a year.  Everyone must go at their own pace.  Understandably, we cannot affort to pay for the long term.

Please help us to help him continue to receive the treatment he so desperately needs and may Hashem bless you for your kindness.
