Weekly News – My Brother’s Keeper

SHARE THIS:

Moshe*’s brother, Daniel*, was at his wit’s end; close in age, they had grown up together and seen their parents go through a difficult divorce when they were adolescents in high school. While Daniel had found his way through it and emerged successfully on the other side, his brother was still suffering terribly; he had turned to drugs, was facing clinical depression, and was prone to violent and angry outbursts.

Now at the age of 21, Moshe was spiraling out of control. Yoni reached out to Amudim seeking guidance and support for his brother. Our case manager spoke with him extensively, and thankfully, together they convinced Moshe that he needed immediate help. We suggested a residential treatment center where Moshe could begin dealing with his drug addiction and depression, and attend daily therapy sessions to grapple with the scars that his parents’ divorce had left behind.

The case manager continued to follow up with Moshe over the following months; Baruch Hashem, he is doing well and has transitioned to an intensive outpatient program. Amudim was able to guide Moshe through the process of getting his treatment covered by insurance, and his brother is happy to report that Moshe is making great progress.

At some future point, we hope to bring the men’s parents into the picture so that they can work together towards finding peace and healing after years of trauma. When you love someone, seeing him/her in pain can be the hardest thing. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to Amudim at any time, day or night; we are here to help.
