Run For A Cause


About the John Volken Academy

The John Volken Academy is a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment center for young men and women aged 18-34 that goes far beyond other treatment centers. Our residents overcome their addictions, as well as further their education, receive extensive career training, and gain all the tools they need for a happy and successful life of sobriety. There are currently three academies in Vancouver, Canada, Phoenix, Arizona and Seattle, Washington. The program’s affordability is at the heart of its purpose. Other than a relatively small one-time admittance fee, the entire cost of the 2-year+ program is paid for by the John Volken Foundation. This includes the housing, food, job training, education, counseling, and more.

Our mission is to be a world leader in providing the most effective and most affordable addiction recovery program teaching relevant life and job skills and instilling in each of our students the desire to always be the best that they can be for themselves, for their families, and for their community.
