marijuana, despair . . . it's
not an easy subject to deal
with. But Joel X. can talk
about it comfortably be-
cause it's in the past. Like
many people of his genera-

teens — was "out for a good
time." He says that he
thought he could stop his
drinking and drug use any
time he wanted to and, be-
sides, it helped him escape a
fragmented, unhappy fam-
ily life.

his dropping out of school
and an inability to function
on a day-to-day basis, a fam-
ily member took Joel to the
Jewish Family Service in
Southfield. A clinical social
worker counseled him on
his personal problems,
while helping him find
other programs for sub-
stance abuse treatment and
vocational guidance. He
was eventually able to
finish school and find a job,
at which time he began tak-
ing part in group
psychotherapy at JFS to
improve his personal rela-
tionships. According to Joel,
he has put his life "back on
track — and then some."
Currently married and em-
ployed out-of-state, Joel is
looking forward to the birth
of his first child this spring.
The agency. Jewish
Family Service offers a
range of confidential serv-
ices that include individual
counseling, marital coun-
seling, group therapy, fam-
ily and child treatment, and
child placement and adop-
tion services. Together with
such support services as
kosher meals on wheels and
programs that team volun-
teers with youngsters and
the elderly, JFS reaches
3,600 people each year. The
agency's clinical social
workers all hold MSW de-
grees and have specialized
training.

THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Tel Aviv (JTA) — An inter-
ministerial committee ex-
amining the activities of cults
in Israel last week submitted
a 500-page report to "Educa-
tion Minister Yitzhak Navon
urging a tough policy to crack
down on the "various sects it
investigated.
The report maintained that
the religious-mystical cults
posed a serious threat to
Israeli society and said the
leaders of the various groups
were enriching themselves.
The committee chairman,
Likud MK Miriam Glazer-
Taasa, told an Israeli Radio
interviewer that membership
in the sects was "a form of
dependence, bondage, self-
enslavement and sometimes
the handing over of an in-
dividual's property to the
leaders who are soul-traders
and abuse our laws."
But civil rights lawyer
Avigdor Feldmen dissented
sharply. He charged that the
report only "encouraged the
persecution of those in our

society who do not conform.
The area of self-expression is
one with which the law
should not deal."
The interministerial com-
mittee was established in
1982 by then Education
Minister Zevulun Hammer of

the National Religious Party.
It investigated 10 groups, in-
cluding Scientology, EST,
Transcendental Meditation,
the Unity Church, the Devine
Light Mission, and Hare
Krishna. The Unity Church
members are known as
"Moonies" after their
founder, the Korean business-
man Rev. Sun Yung Moon.
