About John Volken Academy

The John Volken Academy addiction recovery program is modeled after the therapeutic community approach to addiction treatment, providing students with healthy lifestyle changes needed to live successful and sober lives, in the long term. The treatment programs are supported by a board of directors and receive consultation from addiction professionals and healthy-living specialists. Combining the therapeutic community approach with professional guidance makes this program extremely effective and truly life-changing.

The John Volken Academy is funded by private charitable donations, friends of the Academy, supporting businesses and government.

Thanks to this funding, the program is free after a one-time intake fee of $5000.
