Community-Based Addiction Treatment

By Ellen Yashinsky

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), Spring 2007

The author discusses the Jewish Alcoholics, Chemically Dependent Persons and Significant Others (JACS) program in Detroit, MI, a collaboration between Jewish Family Service of Metropolitan Detroit and the Daniel B. Sobel Friendship House (a residential home under Chabad-Lubavitch auspices). The JACS model, the author explains, is based on the concept of ongoing support, and is client-centered rather than clinician-directed. The model seeks to reduce shame and isolation while increasing the healing factors of awareness and community.
