Portage BC hosted their annual Recognition Celebration on June 23 at the residential rehabilitation centre in Keremeos, British Columbia to honour graduates.
The celebration recognized young British Columbians who are currently in the drug addiction treatment program and those committed to sobriety after one year of completing the program. This past Saturday, 40 youth from across British Columbia were acknowledged for taking control of their addictions.
“Each year it is with great pride that we celebrate the successes of our residents and honour them for the tremendous achievements they have made to be free of addiction,” said Diane Power-Jeans, Director of Portage Keremeos, “Our residents and graduates are testaments to the positive outcomes at Portage and as a non-profit society it is important that we continue this meaningful work.”
“Simply put, Portage Keremeos saved my life,” said Josie Robertson. “It not only helped me face my addiction, it gave me the tools to transition to life outside of treatment.”
