Drug Addiction and Employment Reintegration Programs in Quebec

Portage Quebec

Since its first centre was opened in 1973, Portage has helped tens of thousands of people to take back control of their lives with its specialised drug addiction rehabilitation programs in Quebec.

In the therapeutic community environment, residents work through the underlying issues that caused their substance abuse and develop a set of social competencies that will help them deal with the challenges of everyday life without resorting to drug abuse. They develop the self-esteem and confidence to go on to lead healthy, productive, drug-free lives.
