5 youth complete their high school studies while in treatment for substance abuse
MONTREAL, June 16, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - The Portage rehabilitation program for anglophone youth, unique in Québec, helps clients to get their education back on track while they work through their addiction issues. Tomorrow, June 17, five Portage Beaconsfield residents will celebrate their academic success at Portage Academy and their high school graduation, surrounded by their family and friends, and in the presence of several dignitaries. .
After nearly fifteen years on the site, Portage will soon be relocating, so this last graduation ceremony on the property will be extra special. The relocation is emotional for the West Island community, since Portage Beaconsfield is not only a centre where local youth have freed themselves from their addiction, for many, it is considered a second home. The future location of the centre remains uncertain at this time.
You are invited to come meet these young people who have invested great efforts to take back control of their lives and whose journey will inspire many. One of them will be available for interviews.
