Addiction Recovery Meetings in Jewish Locations

Some addiction recovery support groups are meeting in person again, while others remain online.

Below is a list of peer support recovery groups that met in Jewish communal locations prior to covid restrictions; meeting status (in person, on Zoom, or hybrid) is listed after the meeting day.  As meeting status continues to change, we encourage you to contact the group at the phone number or email in each listing to ensure the information is correct and to let us know of any updates.

Meetings are Closed (only those currently or considering working the program may attend) unless identified as Open (anyone interested in that program may attend).  For more information, to update meeting information, or to add a group to the list, contact Beth Fishman PhD at JCFS Chicago addiction services by email or call 847.745.5422This list is also available as a printable document.
