Support an Educational Group For Frum parents with children (or a spouse) that is or might be struggling with addiction issues.
An Open Letter to Parents from David Kaufman,Director of Outreach and Education at JACS (Jewish Addiction Community Services)

Dear Parents,

You’ve spent tireless years raising your children, endless diaper changes, wiping noses, helping them with homework, soothing their physical and emotional hurts, laughing with and loving them. Then - something went wrong. Something you thought only happened to other people’s families. Alcohol, drugs, and other self-destructive behaviors entered your child’s life, changing everything.

You sadly wondered, “What happened to my sweet innocent child?”, “What did I do wrong?” and “What can I do to fix them?” You feel confused, betrayed, guilty, angry and ashamed. The other children or relationships are beginning to suffer. Sometimes you falsely believe that once one crisis has passed the problem will go away, but it doesn’t. Denial, not asking for educated advice and guidance from experienced professionals, fear and shame are common obstacles to healthy change.

We can help. At JACS we have extensive experience and success in helping parents and family members dealing with addiction issues.

Educate and empower yourselves so you can make a healthy difference in your and your family’s life. Call us we’ll walk through the process with you.

The support / educational group meets every Monday evening a private home in the Bathurst Wilson area. Rules of strict anonymity must be agreed to before attending. If you are interested in attending or more information please contact me.

I know it is difficult or embarrassing for many to show up at a group like this, but those feelings only last a few minutes and in exchange you'll receive a life time of support.


David Kaufman
Director of Outreach and Education JACS
Cert. Addictions Therapist and Studies
C.S.A.T. (Certified Sexual Addiction Therapist) Candidate
