Our community, just like many others, is in denial about addiction amongst its members. Jewish families of all denominations are living in turmoil, with few realizing that there is a place for them to go for help. There is no shame in reaching out for help. There is no need for the members of our community to suffer in silence. They are not alone.
JCFS Addictions Supports:
- Resources to help restore hope, health and healing to individuals and families in the Jewish community who are affected by substance abuse or addiction.
- Community awareness, prevention and education programs, as well as clinical services to help reduce the harms from/ or free individuals from addictions
- JACS (Jewish Alcoholics and Chemically Dependent Persons and their Significant Others) Jewish 12 step group meetings that incorporate culturally appropriate spiritual resources for Jewish individuals.
- “Sober Shabbat”/holiday/ special events and other supports that focus on recovery in a Jewish context.
