Portage helped businessman beat addiction
Fifteen years ago Dan Martell finished his time at Portage Atlantic’s 165-acre facility at Cassidy Lake, New Brunswick.
On Sunday he was back as guest speaker for the same ceremony at Hampton High School where 43 youth from across Canada were recognized for their progress overcoming drug addiction.
Portage, a non-profit organization, has rehabilitation centres in four provinces which work to develop the self-esteem, confidence, and the competencies necessary for people 14 to 21 years old to overcome addiction.
