After having been repeatedly abused as a boy, and a subsequent years-long battle with drug and alcohol addiction, Mike Gondelman (also known as “Big Mike”) turned his life around and has made it his life’s work to help others struggling with addiction, whether they are private clients, or young people living on the streets.
The Jerusalem Sober House is the fulfillment of Big Mike’s dream to open a 12-step based recovery program in Israel for both the religious and secular population.
Later in the program, Certified Behavior Analyst Deena Singer discusses the shift in family dynamics when a teen or young adult at home is suffering with an addiction, and offers plenty of achievable suggestions for parents who are struggling with this circumstance.
