Men’s Support Group

Tackling day-to-day challenges together

Details

JACS Men’s Group is a daily meeting where men of all ages can come to discuss day-to-day challenges, which can range from, but not limited to work and relationships, to exploring our feelings and expressing emotions in healthy ways. The group is open to all men in the JACS community, including both addicts/alcoholics and family members. The group is a relaxed complement to those seeking recovery in a 12-step fellowship such as Alcoholics Anonymous, Al-Anon, or Gamblers Anonymous. The only requirements for attendance is that you are male and that you don’t take yourself too seriously. There is no cost to attend. This group is facilitated by David Kaufman, Director of Outreach & Education. The Men’s support group is open to all men and runs on Sunday’s 11:30am – 1:00pm; Monday – Friday 11:00am – 12:00pm. For more information, please contact davidk@jacstoronto.org

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.
