My personal message:

Why I work for JACS.

by David Kaufman

 

Every week I (or a member of JACS clinical staff):

  •          Sit with and counsel concerned people crying and fearful over a loved one’s alcohol or drug use.
  •          Offer support and guidance to someone wanting to solve their alcohol or drug problem.
  •          Facilitate 4 weekly support groups: Men’s group, Siblings group, Concerned Mothers and Here To Help group.
  •          And more.

It is not easy being around so much pain every day. However, it is offset by seeing the light come back into someone’s eyes after years of drug induced self-abuse or celebrating a child’s years sobriety with parents.

Founded in 2000 by concerned community members, the non-for-profit Jewish Addiction Community Services (JACS) has been on the front line of addiction treatment and outreach. JACS helps people without question of their religion or ethnicity. JACS assists individuals and families treat the problem of addiction where it exists and helps prevent it from spreading.

Each year JACS clinical staff together hold over 1000 individual counselling sessions for those struggling with addiction and their families. This year alone, our educational interactive workshops, lectures, Q. and A. sessions will reach over 6000 people including youth, parents, educators, therapist and clergy.
