About Portage


On May 31, 2011, five Portage representatives delivered a presentation entitled “The Portage Program: a multi-dimensional, strength-based model for the treatment of addictions” at the 43rd Annual Addictions Ontario Conference in Toronto. Peter Vamos, Executive Director of Portage, Pierre Toussaint, Research Coordinator at Portage, and facility directors Patrick Culver (Portage Elora in Ontario), François Bourdon (Portage Prévost in Québec), Geordie Gould (Portage Cassidy Lake in New Brunswick) took the audience through the Portage Program and therapeutic approach, and then looked more specifically at the Portage Elora centre and how it is helping Ontario youth from all regions to overcome their substance abuse issues and go on to lead productive, drug-free lives.

It was the first time that Portage has delivered a presentation at the Addictions Ontario conference and the Portage team was very well received.
