Soul Sanctuary Documentary

The opposite of addiction is not sobriety. The opposite of addiction is community and connection. At a synagogue in West Los Angeles there is a treatment center that approaches addiction as a spiritual malady.

Soul Sanctuary is a 28 minute documentary  film about Beit T’Shuvah a long- term treatment facility which serves people with substance use disorders. The Hebrew translation of Beit is house and T’Shuvah is repentance and new response.
