Outreach & Education

JACS Toronto is a leading educational resource for addiction and recovery in the Greater Toronto Area, working closely with numerous addiction treatment centres and mental health facilities in Canada and internationally. Our focus has been on Toronto’s Jewish community, in which JACS Toronto is the central resource centre for addiction and recovery for Jews of all denominations.

One of JACS Toronto’s most important functions is educational outreach. Our staff and volunteers are sought after speakers and seminars leaders who inform the community about addiction and recovery, and the resources available to addicts and family members seeking help.
