Post-Secondary Education:

While educational seminars and workshops are always an ongoing part of the John Volken Academy, Post-Secondary Education is also an integral part of our Program. Once students are firmly settled in the Program and show interest in furthering their education, they have the opportunity to enrol in on-line courses in their area of interest through universities in Arizona, Washington, and British Columbia. Students spend approximately 3 hours per day, Monday through Friday, on these advanced studies. The success rate is awesome. Many students who used to struggle in High School are now excelling in their education. In their pursuit of excellence, they are pushing themselves academically and developing strength in areas they never imagined possible.
Our commitment to providing access to higher education furthers our mission of being a world leader in effective addiction treatment and challenging every student to become the best that they can be – mentally, physically, emotionally, socially, and spiritually. Upon graduation, our students are fully prepared for a sober, happy,
successful life.

“The person I had become because of drugs was someone who felt empty inside and disconnected from everyone I cared for and loved. The feeling I felt was so dark and evil that I can’t explain it in words. It was such a sick, empty, hollow feeling. The John Volken Academy has changed everything for me… I truly know I will live a life of sobriety… my family is so proud of me… they can’t believe how strong I have become.”
