Drug Addiction Rehabilitation Program for

Anglophone Youth in Quebec

Helping Quebec youth since 2001

Portage’s adolescent program for anglophone youth is an English-speaking residential drug addiction rehabilitation program, located in Prevost Quebec.

Within the gender-specific therapeutic community environment, residents deal with the root causes of their drug addiction problems and learn how to better function in their everyday lives, without needing drugs.

The on-site schooling, tailored to individual needs, helps them learn to succeed in school.

The supportive community of people who have been through similar struggles helps them to develop the self-esteem and social competencies necessary to build the confidence that they too can live healthy, happy, and productive lives.

Aftercare and Family Services help them develop a strong support network of people to help them pursue a positive lifestyle after treatment.
