This fall, several Portage staff members will be heading back to school. Approximately forty employees will be attending a new training program delivered on-site at Portage’s rehabilitation centre in Prévost by the Université de Sherbrooke.
Portage employees, both clinical and administrative, are renowned for the quality of their work, their empathy, and their professionalism. In an effort to continually improve the quality of services, Portage encourages staff members to constantly further their knowledge and training to keep themselves up to date with the best therapeutic practices.
All Portage employees in Québec who do not already have a certificate in substance abuse rehabilitation treatment or an equivalent training, now have direct access to the substance abuse certificate program offered by the Université de Sherbrooke. The program provides theoretical and practical training for both preventive and restorative substance abuse treatment.
By offering this two and a half year program on-site and on weekends, the Université de Sherbrooke has made it even easier for Portage employees to access the training. Classes begin on November 1.
