JCS Recovery, an expansion of JACS, is an addiction and recovery support network for Jewish People. We are founded on the principles of Jewish recovery, fellowship, and social work. Our mission is to create a space where Jews in recovery and their loved ones can gain support from each other, and learn new skills based in mindfulness, compassion, and expressive writing. This includes on-going meetings and support groups.
