The Klempner Center – Anonymous Help Phone Line Services
The Klempner Center provides preventative educational programs for children and teens and provides community educational seminars and workshops on topics related to addictions. For the Jewish community, an anonymous phone line has been established which is answered by a Jewish person who is in a 12 step recovery program. This person will listen and direct you to a program that provides help or relief. Call 727-9287 and leave a message. Your phone call will be returned quickly and you can get help for yourself or a loved one. Jews in the community do have problems with alcoholism, drug abuse, overeating, gambling and other addictions. Jews in the community also are members of 12 step recovery programs. You can get help by calling the number above.
