40 years of success for Portage
Portage’s Beaconsfield drug rehabilitation centre opened its doors in 2001 and has so far helped 1,200 troubled youth obtain their high school diploma while getting rid of their addictions.
This year, the parent-organization, Portage, turns 40 years old. This was celebrated at the organization’s first centre in Prévost near Lac Écho in the Laurentian. Over 300 people were in attendance from other centres and offices across Quebec. Former residents from every decade gave speeches to the crowd.
