Our network of Counsellors, Program Coordinators and Clinical Supervisors are located in various regions throughout Canada.
Venture Academy treatment and support services are provided in real communities.
No transition from an isolated or artificial environment triggering a relapse.

Our “outreach” program sends our staff to the family home for convenience and so that families can feel comfortable in their own home rather than an unfamiliar, clinical office setting. One-on-one sessions with youth are held on common ground in the community or a place youth feel comfortable such as a coffee shop or park. Youth are picked up at home or after school and dropped off at home after time spent with their Counsellor.
Venture Academy offers youth and families access to our programs while still retaining supports and relationships in their home communities.
Providing treatment services in a “real” environment is crucial for skill transference. The more realistic the learning environment, the easier it is to transfer new skills and apply them to everyday real life situations.
In some circumstances youth may be entrenched in a damaging and destructive lifestyle. A temporary change in environment offers opportunity for a fresh start and a chance for youth to break free from unhealthy behavioural patterns.
In these circumstances youth may access a Venture Academy residential treatment program in an “out of town” location. Depending on family preferences and youth needs, the change in location may be temporary with the youth returning to the same Venture Academy program in or near their hometown.
