It’s heartwarming to see the work JACS does in our community up close. I watched as their professionals educated community members on addiction triggers and mental health obstacles, which ensured those in the audience they were not alone in their daily struggles. Never have I been able to see an organization’s impact so clearly in such a short period of time.

After doing drugs for over 42 years I had had enough and desperately wanted to stop ! Now 3 years clean I still attend meetings at JACS. If I would have known that recovery is this good I would have done it a long time ago.

I had long know I was a sex addict and didn’t know where to turn. My life had been unmanageable and I was not able to control my addiction. The first couple of COVID months were extremely isolating and hard for me. Finding distractions and projects was not a solution to my addiction. JACS is offering fellowship, support, structure, counselling, a safe open honest space and hope. I am grateful for the support and opportunity JACS offers.
