In 1995 he was recruited to and appointed Vice President of The Center for Investigation & Treatment of Addiction (CITA). In this capacity, Yossi promoted a new humanitarian approach to treatment of opiate addiction, establishing 12 treatment and research centers around the world from Mexico to China.
In 2001 during the peak of the Palestinian intifada, Yossi was invited to return to Israel to produce a reconciliation festival. Despite the escalation of violence in the region, the festival managed to attract spiritual leaders of Judaism and Islam as well as unprecedented audiences.
