Chabad Lifeline is a non-sectarian organization dedicated to helping individuals and families affected by addiction. Here, individuals suffering from substance and behavioural addictions, and their family members, will be guided by experienced and caring professionals through the process of healing and recovery.
Since 1989, Chabad Lifeline has helped thousands of individuals and families to recover from addiction, regardless of their race, religion or age.
Our team is experienced in dealing with a wide variety of addictions. We offer programs and support for substance-based addictions such as drugs, prescription drugs, food and alcohol, as well as for behavioural addictions such as gambling, sex, internet and spending.
Our family systems approach views addiction as a family disease and treats it accordingly. Family members often display unhealthy behaviours of their own that should be addressed for the recovery of the addict as well as their own recovery. These behaviours might include enabling, enmeshment, controlling and caretaking. Family members also often display symptoms of depression, anxiety and despair. In fact, research shows that for one suffering addict, there are at least four family members or friends who are suffering as well.
