"At the beginning it was hard, but I was so motivated to actually finish something and achieve something in my life. It was difficult to look at myself in the mirror, but I had the strength and determination to push through. I asked for help and the entire community mobilised to support me. It was overwhelming. The love that I received from my brothers at Portage… they are the ones who carried me through the process and helped me with my evolution. I achieved my goal of becoming a better man."
"Portage helped him realise that his family had an important role to play in his rehabilitation process. For the past 3-4 years, our family has been focused on helping Louis-Alexandre get better. As far as I’m concerned, his experience at Portage has been a 100% success. For our family, the sun is now rising again thanks to Portage."
