Rabbi Mark Rotenberg, CADC, CPC, Minister to the Community
Rabbi Mark Rotenberg, CADC, CPC has been working in the recovery field for over 15 years. He has experience with all types of addiction, intervention and counseling. His focus for the past 8 years has been Spiritual counseling and using psycho/spiritual therapy, with an emphasis on the spiritual awakening or spiritual experience the recovery community sees as the result of 12-step work. By blending spiritual and recovery texts with ancient and modern spiritual disciplines he integrates the pragmatic recovery experience (12-steps) with the inner spiritual resources of the recovering individual to facilitate self-discovery in all aspects of their lives. Mark received his undergraduate education in design at San Jose State University, and worked in the Arts and Design field for 15 years. After finding sobriety Mark started working in recovery. He graduated from UCLA’s addiction counseling program and went on to work full time in recovery. As his own spiritual journey progressed he returned to the faith of his childhood and entered Rabbinic School at the Academy for Jewish Religion in Los Angeles. Battling his own resentments to the faith of his youth Mark formed an open, inclusive theology that worked for his own struggles with life. He became aware that anyone who sought the spiritual and divine could form a proactive personal regime that would guide them in their quest. Mark is currently also working on two recovery based books while actively facilitating Recovery Boot Camp’s night-time intensive outpatient didactic sessions.
