Portage is grateful to have been selected by the Bell Let’s Talk Community Fund to receive a donation once again this year for its drug addiction rehabilitation program for Mentally Ill Chemical Abusers (MICA).
Portage’s MICA Program is a residential drug addiction rehabilitation program for men suffering from both mental illness (primarily schizophrenia) and substance abuse, treating the two disorders as well as their interaction. Through therapeutic groups and a supportive environment of peers who have been through similar struggles, residents work through the issues that caused their drug addiction problems and develop the skills and competencies to be able to better handle the challenges of everyday life.
