About Portage


Since the doors of Portage Atlantic’s drug addiction rehabilitation treatment centre for youth were opened in 1996, nearly 2,000 youth with serious drug addiction problems have passed through them with the goal of turning their lives around.

Portage Atlantic is extremely grateful to the community, which consistently lends its support and recognises the important role that the Cassidy Lake treatment centre fills in Atlantic Canada. Thank you to Portage Atlantic staff, board members, partners, and donors who have supported Atlantic youth in need on their journey to sobriety over the past two decades.

As we look back on 20 years throughout 2016, we will be sharing inspirations messages and stories. Join the discussion on our Facebook and Twitter pages using ‪#PortageATL20‬‬. ‬‬‬‬
