The Portage Residential Rehabilitation Program for Adolescents in Ontario
Portage Ontario is a non-profit organisation that established a residential substance abuse rehabilitation centre for adolescents
in Elora, near Guelph in 1985, in cooperation with the Government of Ontario. Since its establishment, the centre has treated more than 4,000 youth from every region of Ontario.
Portage offers comprehensive services within a continuum of care model aimed at helping users to overcome addiction problems. Its programs, which are based on the therapeutic community approach
, encourage personal growth and enable residents to transform their lives.
The Portage Elora treatment centre has a 40-bed capacity and provides substance abuse treatment for males and females in two gender-separate programs. The residential rehabilitation centre serves youth referred by parents, schools, family physicians, hospitals, other addiction-treatment and youth-serving agencies, as well as through Youth Justice and the Children's Aid Society.
