Jewish drug rehab is one of many kinds of faith-based treatment, offering specific courses of therapy for Jewish addicts who seek sobriety through an immersion in their faith and a better understanding of their heritage (although these programs usually accept patients of all faiths). Jewish drug rehab places a strong emphasis on behavior modification and corrective thinking in the pursuit of lasting sobriety. It combines the tenets of the Torah and the 12-step philosophy and is very successful in the treatment of drug addiction.

There are also several Jewish drug rehab programs geared toward instilling and increasing awareness of the power of faith and religion during and after recovery. Specific methods are used for practicing Jews who wish to acquire a heightened comprehension of their faith and seek recovery based on the lessons therein.

Outreach specialists will frequently call and check up on the patient, as well as attempt to involve them in different types of community-oriented activities the organization may sponsor. A strong network of support is another advantage of faith-based therapy and is especially present in Jewish drug rehab.
