Bereshith is a non-profit organization registered with the Department of Social Development since June 2019, although we have been active in social upliftment since May 2016. We are also a registered Public Benefit Organization (PBO) with SARS in South Africa, which means that contributions to Bereshith are tax deductible. Our PBO number is 9650473185.
Our experience has shown that when a person completes the 6-week detox and step work classes in a rehab facility, they often face challenges such as homelessness, lack of support structures, unemployment, and inadequate skills to secure a job. While the first 4 steps of the 12-step program are covered during the rehab period, we believe that further support is needed to help individuals maintain their sobriety.
At Bereshith, we have developed a comprehensive program that complements the recovery process by guiding individuals through the remaining 8 steps of the 12-step program and providing upskilling opportunities in their areas of strength. We believe that this approach increases the likelihood of long-term success for individuals in recovery.
At Bereshith, we have a clear and ambitious mission: to become the most effective Non-Profit Organisation in the prevention, treatment, and aftercare of substance abuse. We are committed to upskilling, educating, and empowering individuals to become strong and healthy members of society who can contribute to building a brighter future.
Our aim is to provide a roadmap to a sober, healthy life for those who have struggled with addiction, helping them to restore their self-respect and dignity. We believe that everyone deserves a chance to recover, and we are dedicated to making that possible by providing comprehensive and effective support throughout the recovery process.
At Bereshith Centre, we envision a society free from the devastating effects of substance abuse and addiction. To achieve this, we provide comprehensive and specialised education, prevention, treatment, and aftercare services that focus on upskilling and empowering individuals in their journey towards sobriety and reintegration into society. Our mission is to be the leading non-profit organisation in this field, enhancing the quality of life and restoring self-respect and dignity for all those we serve.
