Jewish Addiction Awareness Network

About Jewish Addiction Awareness Network

The mission of Jewish Addiction Awareness Network (JAAN) is to increase understanding of the disease of addiction and decrease stigma by connecting individuals, families, and professionals across the Jewish spectrum in order to explore the intersection of Judaism and recovery, exchange resources, and support those in crisis.

Jewish Addiction Awareness Network (JAAN) works with clergy, synagogues, community organizations, families, and individuals across the United States to increase awareness, provide support, and create innovative programming to address the addiction crisis. Our programs focus on education, advocacy, and the power of Jewish traditions and knowledge to provide guidance and wisdom to the many Jewish lives affected by this disease. JAAN's comprehensive resource site,, is a place for information and connection, featuring many voices sharing Jewish perspectives on addiction and recovery. We know we're making a difference when a rabbi remarks, "JAAN has transformed the conversation on addiction in our community," and a mother of a teen says, "It was difficult for me to write you. I felt embarrassed to name what was going on in our home. I'm so glad I did, and I'm so grateful for JAAN." Together, we can continue to shatter the stigma, and replace it with hope, understanding, and compassion.
