The Need
August 25, 2016 10:23 am

Yes! Unfortunately there is a major need for this program in our religious community and finally these amazing people stepped up to the plate. Amazing work!

Amazing!
August 24, 2016 8:17 pm

I am so impressed! These yidden saw a need in klal yisroel and reallly delivered. A regular drug rehab can fix an addiction but unfortunately damages the neshama by over exposing them to too much non jewishness during their time there. Hopefully this will be the solution. May hashem grant you much hatzlocha in your endeavors and may you have much success!

finally
August 24, 2016 5:02 pm

its about time we have such a thing in the frum community. Thanks you and good luck !

Kudos
August 24, 2016 4:58 pm

Great job, unfortunately this is much needed in the community . Much hatzlacha!

Why
August 23, 2016 11:01 pm

I am reading all these comments and wondering is there really such a need for this idea? Is this issue so widespread?

Novel Idea
August 23, 2016 12:02 pm

It is about time that we face this problem and not sweep it under the rug.. Thank you for bringing it out…

Shmulik, this looks amazing!
August 22, 2016 10:51 pm

With your dedication & love for helping others, I have no doubt it will be a huge success!

I might even come join 🙂 Well, maybe.

I can tell you Rabbi Schneerson has changed my life. A program like this is long overdue.. Wishing you much luck

Fantastic-- can't wait for someone to open one for women
August 22, 2016 2:27 pm

This place seems to be top of the line! I am a mentor to many young women in pain. Most have received care at Mormon Rehab centers. Oftentimes, no Kosher food is allowed in and certainly no place for religious discussion. Our community needs to have a place for these vulnerable young women. As an aside, to the one who asked about cost: I have no doubt this will cost those who go for treatment an arm and a leg but you must understand that rehab centers are rarely reimbursed for anything and the cost of upkeep is sky high.… Read more »

His talent for connecting to each individual is unique, and I’m sure will sure the center well. Hatzlacha rabbah to all involved!

About time !!!
August 22, 2016 2:05 pm

Kol hakoavod r shmulik its about time they have center which caters to those from frum homes.

Such a noble endeavor!
August 22, 2016 1:32 pm

This sounds like an amazing dream team for such a noble endeavor! this is truly filling a much needed void in our community! Kol hakavod to you all… Wish I could help somehow…we all know someone who can use this… I guess if I know anyone who will go I’ll send them you way. Hatzlocha!

Making a difference
August 22, 2016 1:22 pm

KAL Hakovod to Hittoreri. Great staff great amenities.. This looks very promising

Very Impressive
August 22, 2016 1:08 pm

Finally! this wonderful initiative is long overdue. Instead of burying their head in the sand this wonderful group of people have taken on one of the most pressing issues of our day.
I personally know some of the Rabbis.
Rabbi Taub is legendary for his wisdom and Rabbi kalmenson is a gem of a mensch. His warmth, care and vision, not to mention his deep insight on this topic will ensure that this program stands out in the field of recovery and produces real change in many lives. Hatzlacha Raba!

Rabbi Shmulik Schneerson
August 22, 2016 12:34 pm

Is a true gem in the Los Angeles community…

Good location!
August 22, 2016 12:21 pm

If your in new York, better off going to this place , simply you need that change of place

Great staff!
August 22, 2016 12:04 pm

I don’t know most of the staff personally, but rabbi Kalmenson is definitely something special- he helped someone I know- with compassion and wisdom and such a generous spirit. I Met him a few times and he has this extraordinary, positive energy that is so appealing ! Lucky residents – tho they shouldn’t need his services for long

Rabbii Shmulik,
August 22, 2016 11:40 am

Rabbi Schneerson and his wife have been serving the needs of our youth for many years in a very positive manner. I have personally witnessed a case in which the couple with their kind and understanding ways were able to pull a youth from great emotional and abusive depths to a positive place with higher values and understanding and approach in life.
We wish them much hatzlacha in this most important en-devour.

Kol hakovod!
August 22, 2016 11:35 am

The rehab looks beautiful! Hopefully, with the help of HaShem and the amazing staff those who need help will have a complete recovery.
This is a much needed facility for the boys who come from frum homes.
Bhatzlacha!

Hatzlacha rabba
August 22, 2016 11:27 am

This place looks and sounds incredible. I’m a big fan of rabbi Shais taub and rabbi Yekusiel Kalmenson. I know Kalmenson a little better- and he is a brilliant guy with a huge heart. Wish you all the greatest success

New addiction rehab place
August 22, 2016 9:41 am

Now that’s something very important that ppl have been waiting for for years….. Thank you so much! Much hatzlacha!

So painfull , yet so promissing
August 22, 2016 8:03 am

I must be so from yester year. Has this terrible Machle afflicted the Frumme Oilom? I must be so so out of touch and reality. However, if this is unfortunately the case, then kudos and huge Yasher Koach to all involved that are attending to the afflicted and their families.

Amazing
August 22, 2016 7:52 am

This is truly amazing. Hopefully it will be helpful to those who need it. That’s the tricky part – getting those who need it to use it. Now we just have to remember that women also need a center like this as well.

This will fill a huge void!
August 22, 2016 3:40 am

There is such a need for a wraparound style rehab, which isn’t just a sober living but comprehensive stimulating program which is the only way to make real changes. It seems like this is what the intention is. I hope it is, and wish them so much success in saving these precious souls.

Baruch hashem
August 22, 2016 2:55 am

Long overdue!

Do those who are helped by this facility, have to pay?
August 22, 2016 1:56 am

If not it sounds great.
I wish there was some place like that for people who needed guidance or mentoring for problems other then drug addiction.
It would be wonderful to be able to go have such amenities (especially including horseback riding) while getting such guidance for other problems or issues in life.

August 22, 2016 12:47 am

I am so glad Rabbi Kalmenson is utilizing his talents for the recovery community. His legendary recovery classes have helped so many people achieve sobriety.
Wishing Rabbi Kalmenson and his amazing staff much success!

Top of the line staff; caring, devoted, and wise

This is excellent news for recovering addicts and their families.

Rabbi Shneerson has a unique gift of caring and guiding young men going through recovery. He is devoted to the cause with his heart and soul.

Rabbi Taub is a world class expert in addiction treatment and will no doubt guide and advise like only he knows how.

This center will no doubt quickly become the best of the best in the field

A beautiful facility and incredible staff
August 21, 2016 11:50 pm

I’m glad that the frum community is addressing this very real need. I checked out the website, and it looks like they’re offering the perfect blend of nature, professionalism, and grounded spirituality. Yasher koach!

What initiative! This project is incredible, kudos to it’s founders and all of its supporters! May you have the greatest success, that your centre will shut down for lack of addicts 😉

Love it
August 21, 2016 11:16 pm

All that is needed now is for soon to be recovering addicts to check in and start the healing.
Hatzlaacha, and Refuah shalayma shalayma to all.

Helping another
August 21, 2016 10:38 pm

The Jewish world needs to be more proactive in facing the challenge of addiction.. It is important for all of us to be more vocal and supportive to our brothers in need!!! This program looks to be exactly what we need..

Wow finally
August 21, 2016 10:37 pm

I’m so happy that this place opened. It has been sorely needed for a long time. Yasher coach!

Worked with them
August 21, 2016 10:35 pm

As someone who deals with addiction, this is a wonderful piece of news. Many frum people come to rehabs nearby where we live, and try to maintain some level of kosher. a fully kosher rehab with these high quality staff is a gem. May no one need their services. But in the meantime that addiction is so prevalent in our communities, now they will have a place to go.

This is unbelievable.
August 21, 2016 10:35 pm

I’m amazed. I wish it can be for women too…

Kol hakavod. Unfortunately this is very needed. That boys can go to a place, run by frum professionals in a good atmosphere is amazing. Much hatzlacha.

Wow
August 21, 2016 9:26 pm

Mamash incredible. Long overdue…these rabbis are highly qualified and have helped me personally.
