Cultural & Recreational Activities

Because a healthy mind and a healthy body go hand in hand, we provide our residents with many opportunities to be active and to cultivate new interests, as they learn to build a new healthy lifestyle for themselves.

All our centres provide residents with opportunities to be active and discover or rediscover activities and hobbies during therapy.

Prior to arriving at Portage, many residents had given up activities or hobbies they previously enjoyed. This new opportunity to resume their interests lets them enjoy life without resorting to drugs.

Activities vary from one centre to another and may include:

  • Team sports
  • Music
  • Arts
  • Community garden
  • Zootherapy
  • Book club
  • Cooking workshops
  • Great outdoors: canoeing, swimming, kayaking, hiking, etc.
  • Yoga, martial arts, dancing, rock-climbing, cycling, etc.
  • Community outings: museums, camping, orchards, community events, etc.
