The Guard Your Eyes organization has been relatively unknown until recently, but with the expansion of its efforts and proven success, it is becoming known throughout the Jewish world today as the number one resource for dealing with the growing problem of the struggle with inappropriate materials on the Internet and related behaviors in our communities.

Fueled mainly by the accessibility and anonymity of the Internet, this affliction has spared no class of Jews all across the religious spectrum. This widespread problem is destroying more peoples marriages and Yidishkeit than almost anything else today. Many of the social ills afflicting the Jewish community today such as youth-at-risk, broken marriages and even child abuse can be traced back to this issue. Much of our communities investments in education today are being undermined by the strong-pull of these temptations. - Treatment

In four years of operations, with a meager yearly budget and minimal advertising, Guard Your Eyes has helped over 1,000 Jews get back on a path of sanity, healing and self-control. This has been accomplished through the many features of our network which include a website, forums, handbooks, chizuk e-mails, hotlines and 12 step phone conferences and groups. The achievements to date would mark an unprecedented success for even the best of multi-million dollar rehab centers dealing with different types of addictions.

We attribute our success to 5 factors:

1) Experience: The tools of our recovery program were developed with guidance from the best experts in the field and through the personal experience of hundreds of dedicated Jews who successfully broke free of their addiction and are determined to help others.

2) A Novel Approach: Our recovery system is not only unique for the Jewish community, but unique in the world, in that we address the many different levels of addiction with a program that uses progressively more “addiction oriented” tools based on the level of the dependence. For example, there are many people who just started to slip in these areas and can get out of it with the proper perspective, filters, some basic safe-guards and some accountability. Others need far more intense solutions, such as our 12-Step phone conferences and referrals to live 12-step groups and therapists. All in all though, this program promises a solution for everyone, no matter how advanced the addiction may have progressed.

3) Anonymity: The many tools and services on our network are mostly either on-line, in print or by phone. What makes this so powerful is that it ensures complete anonymity for those who turn to us for help. This is one of the greatest secrets to our success, because anonymity, especially in these sensitive areas - and all the more so in the religious community, is one of the main inhibitions of people reaching out for help.

4) Accessibility: We harness the very power of instant accessibility of the internet which has fueled this epidemic, to reach and help thousands of Jews throughout the world that conventional therapeutic approaches would otherwise not be able to reach.

5) Providing Hope: The inherently pure Jewish souls caught in this addiction are often just yearning for a helping hand to give them that extra push they need to break free. By finding that they are not alone and that hundreds of others have succeeded through our tools, they are instilled with the determination and courage to change.
