For the graduates of Portage’s drug rehabilitation programs
Even with the support of Portage’s social reintegration and aftercare services, the transition from the structured and secure environment at Portage to an autonomous lifestyle as a graduate can be a vulnerable and stressful period.
In order to make it a bit easier, clients of certain programs have access to supervised apartments upon completion of the residential program.
The supervised apartment phase is an important stepping stone in which clients can gradually prepare themselves for their transition back into society. The apartments are shared with other graduates and have communal kitchens and living rooms. The structure empowers the tenants to take responsibility for the day-to-day management of their living environment and the proper functioning of the community, with support from Portage counsellors.
The apartments are available to graduates of some of Portage’s drug addiction rehabilitation programs in the greater Montréal region, at affordable prices, for a period of six months to two years.
