Jewish people are likely to suffer from drug and alcohol addiction just like anyone else, but the traditional Jewish belief is that their body belongs to God, and should not be purposely harmed. Because of this belief, there has been a long-standing viewpoint that addictions should not be talked about, and addicts are shamed or made to feel guilty. However, much of this has changed, and people within the many Jewish communities throughout the United States are starting to talk about addiction. It is important for an addict to be able to reach out for help and talk to their loved ones about their addiction. Drug treatment programs within the state of South Dakota include inpatient and outpatient centers, and many of these programs are faith-based drug treatment services. Jewish faith-based drug treatment centers are specifically tailored to help Jewish people who are struggling with addictions.
