Reaching Out to Recovering Jews: A Professional Partnership with the Jewish Community

By Arlene Kahn, Arthur Frankel

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 1993

There is a growing awareness that many Jews are dealing with active addictions to drugs and alcohol, and many more are recovering. Jews generally will not seek out traditional addiction services, which do not deal with the unique issues faced by recovering Jews. This is particularly true of the 12-step programs, in which professionals are usually not allowed to participate. A Jewish Family Service in New Jersey developed a partnership with the recovering Jewish community and helped over 600 people dealing with addictions come together to share the support that is uniquely needed by recovering Jews.
