Counseling & Addiction Services focuses on recovery and healing for people with mental health concerns, physical or social stressors, addiction, and past or current trauma. Through individual and/or group therapy, counselors help to address mental health symptoms, build skills around managing emotions and develop pathways toward resiliency. We assist members of the Jewish community, as well as people in the general community impacted by trauma, poverty and disability.
Addiction services at JFS are designed specifically to increase awareness, expand understanding and offer a culturally sensitive therapeutic response to addiction within the Jewish community. Services include:
We provide up to six months of individual counseling for people age 7 and older. We will partner with you to create a tailored treatment plan, carefully identifying and addressing your goals.
Our counselors, including an addiction specialist, have training in a variety of therapeutic methods, such as Mindfulness, Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). You and your therapist will decide on the tools and techniques most appropriate to meet your needs.
