Substance use and addiction are issues that affect people of all ages and backgrounds, and the Jewish community is no exception. Our youth are exposed to substances at alarmingly young ages and are often unaware of the dangers of alcohol and drug use. CCSA provides evidence-based prevention education programs to middle and high school yeshiva students, as well as faculty and parent workshops.
CCSA has partnered with over 50 schools across the U.S. and has reached over 10,000 students. In addition, CCSA works to eliminate the stigma surrounding these issues by providing support for families and conducting community-wide awareness events. By creating dialogue and educating entire communities, we can break the cycle of addiction and save lives.
