Mission Statement

Lifeline is a non-sectarian agency dedicated to helping everyone affected by addiction. We offer a full range of treatment options and comprehensive youth at-risk programs. People suffering from substance and behavioural addictions and their family members are guided through the process of healing and recovery. Our services are immediate and free to those in need. Our team of social workers, counsellors, and peers help forge the lifeline relationships that clients need to keep their lives on track. We know first-hand how essential our services are in preventing today’s at-risk youth from becoming tomorrow’s addict.


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.
