Haderech treats groups of recovering patients for periods up to nine months. The patients develop sound living habits and participate in an intensive program of individual and group therapy which equips them to succeed upon reentry into their home community. They also receive excellent medical treatment (including a psychiatrist) There are also extramural activities which include sport, art, drama, yoga etc. We also use family intervention, seminars, workshops and lectures to empower the change.
At the end of the program, the patients will move to "protected residence" in the framework of health system (like a half-way house) outside of the therapeutic community.
The average day of the participant begins at 6:00 am and ends at 10:00 pm.
The day combines work in the community and individual and group therapy sessions as well as 12 step theory and practice.
Women: There will be an effort to integrate the women residents into the regular treatment that demands personal and group responsibilities, changing patterns of behavior and thinking, and achieving control on life and drug use.
At the same time we understand and are aware of the specific needs of this particular population. Therefore, professional care will be provide for the delicate balance between the specific needs and the regular program.
The center will give a suitable response to this population at the area of mental health and guidance for leading a "normal" daily life. And will treat the women as a part of the group and separated at the same time.
