Kosher Recovery Program
The Kosher Recovery Program at Immersion Recovery Center offers a unique treatment experience for those of the Jewish faith. Building on Immersion’s existing spiritual foundation, the Kosher Recovery Program allows clients to explore their faith as a source of strength throughout their treatment. Clients’ cultural, dietary, religious observance and holiday needs are fully embraced. Access to rabbis and spiritual guides are available and encouraged. If you or a loved one are interested in the Kosher Recovery Program at Immersion, please reach out to our Jewish Community Liaison and begin the healing journey of addiction recovery today.
What is Kosher Food?
Kosher food is food prepared in adherence with a set of dietary laws associated with Judaism.
Whether or not a certain food is considered “kosher” depends on what it is and how it is prepared. At Immersion Recovery Center we have a dedicated chef on staff who has attained a thorough education on and cultural understanding of Judaism and kosher food.
Our chef has a detailed comprehension of kosher requirements and regulations, and works directly with our clients to plan and prepare meals.
At Immersion Recovery Center, we honor and accommodate all cultural and religious practices and guidelines, ensuring our clients have access to the services and resources they need to recover comfortably.
There are several unique benefits associated with our Kosher Recovery Program. To learn more about the provided services, contact our Jewish Community Liaison directly.
Interactive Kosher Meal Planning with Professional Chef
Not only do clients plan their meals with our experienced and knowledgeable chef, Eric Cone, but they are driven to and from a local kosher supermarket on a weekly basis where they are encouraged to do their own shopping. Eric sits down with each client individually, going over the kosher menu and ensuring all nutritional needs are being met.
Our kitchen was specially designed to adhere to kosher standards. We have a designated kitchen, and kosher food services are available to clients in all levels of clinical care — medical detox, partial hospitalization, and inpatient treatment.

Cultural & Spiritual Environment
Spirituality serves as a cornerstone of addiction recovery, regardless of personal background. At Immersion Recovery Center we are committed to providing clients with a safe and supportive environment in which they can engage in any pre-existing religious practices while continuing to explore and expand upon their spiritual connection. We are also dedicated to ensuring Immersion provides a safe space for people of all cultural backgrounds. We ensure one of our licensed, on-staff therapists is deeply attuned to Jewish culture, and has a thorough understanding of the unique experiences of clients from this specific background.

She devotes her time now to helping others get the help they need for substance abuse and mental health treatment.
