“As parents, imagine knowing your child is suffering and in pain but you’re helpless to stop it! We’ve experienced this nightmare, and whether it’s an addiction problem or some other form of disease, as in our case, the havoc and heartbreak to families is very real. I believe Portage Ontario makes a difference and helps families wake up from the nightmare.”
