“JFCS is here to help”

ISSUE | DRUG ABUSE
A helping hand
Organizations such as the Samost Jewish Family and Children’s Service of Southern New Jersey (JFCS) are taking the lead by educating young adults and their parents. Last year, we developed “Right in Our Backyard,” an interactive panel presentation for parents and tweens/teens that features parents who have lost a child to overdose, law enforcement officials, an addictions expert, and a young adult in recovery. The panel discusses warning signs, strategies to avoid the problem, and options for help.
 JFCS is here to help, offering the program at no charge to local groups, schools, youth organizations, synagogues, and churches. If you would like to schedule a presentation of “Right in Our Backyard,” please contact me. Together, we can bring education to the forefront and save lives.
