JACS Toronto is an organization that provides support for individuals struggling with addiction in Ajax, Ontario. JACS stands for Jewish Addiction Community Services and it was founded by a group of Jewish volunteers to help those who are dealing with substance abuse issues. The organization offers many services such as individual counselling, group therapy, family counselling and peer-support groups. They also provide referrals to local detox facilities and residential treatment programs if needed.
The mission of JACS Toronto is to provide a safe environment where people can access the resources they need in order to make positive changes in their lives related to addiction or mental health issues. The goal is not only helping individuals recover from their addictions but also providing them with tools necessary for preventing relapse into destructive behaviours associated with substance use disorder (SUD). This includes education about the risks involved when using substances as well as teaching coping skills so that one can better manage stressors without resorting back into drug/alcohol use again .
In addition, JACS Toronto has developed various educational materials which include pamphlets on topics like “Understanding Addiction” and “Recovery: A Journey”; these are distributed throughout post secondary institutions across Ajax, Ontario area so students have easy access information regarding SUDs prevention strategies or recovery options available right at their fingertips! Furthermore , there are weekly meetings held at both Ryerson University & UOIT campuses where members share stories of hope & strength while connecting over common experiences; this helps build strong community ties among peers which further encourages long term sobriety success rates!
