On November 7, 2012 Portage Atlantic hosted a Community Breakfast in St. John’s, Newfoundland. Fifty guests were in attendance, including St. John’s Mayor Dennis O’Keefe. Portage Atlantic staff members explained the program and a graduate delivered a touching testimonial about her struggles with addiction and about how Portage has helped her to overcome them. While there, Portage was able to do some networking in the community; connecting with St. John’s addiction services staff and reaching out to possible aftercare resources for residents.
Portage would like to thank Atlantic Lottery Corporation for sponsoring the event.
