Myths & Misconceptions of Substance Abuse in the Jewish Community

At Overcome Wellness & Recovery in Lakewood, NJ, we understand the destructive impact of stigma and misconceptions surrounding addiction in the Jewish community. Contrary to popular belief, addiction can affect anyone, regardless of their faith or background.

We offer evidence-based treatment programs that address the unique challenges of addiction and mental health disorders. Don’t let myths and misconceptions prevent you from seeking the help you need – here are some common misconceptions and the truth about addiction in the Jewish community:

  • The Jewish faith does not protect its followers against addiction. Addiction can affect anyone, regardless of their faith or beliefs & support is available!
  • Observant Jews can & do struggle with substance abuse. Alcohol and drugs are not limited to non-religious or secular individuals.
  • Substance abuse does not reflect one’s faith or connection to their religious heritage. There are a variety of factors that can contribute to addiction.
  • Addiction is not a sign of moral failure; individuals struggling with substance abuse should not feel guilty or ashamed.
  • Faith-based recovery services cannot be a valuable resource for Jewish community members struggling with addiction and mental health issues. Wrong!

At Overcome Wellness & Recovery, we provide a safe and welcoming environment for individuals of all faiths to seek the help they need. Contact us today to learn more about our evidence-based treatment programs and start your journey towards recovery.

Does Judaism Promote Drug and Alcohol Treatment?

For a long time, a stigma was associated with drug and alcohol addiction within the Jewish community. That has changed. While many remain embarrassed about alcoholism and drug use, more people are willing to talk openly about their struggles and seek help.

By incorporating Judaism holistically into its counseling and services, a rehab and treatment program can improve its effectiveness and provide additional mental health support for its patients.
