Venture Academy provides help for troubled teens in Canada including troubled teens who are experiencing family conflict, negative peers, school suspensions, low self-esteem, suicidal thoughts, drug and alcohol abuse, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD), Conduct Disorder, anxiety, depression, and other clinically diagnosed disorders or significant behavioural challenges. Our residential assessment and treatment program provides an effective alternative to a boot camp for troubled teens or “traditional” boarding schools for troubled teens in Canada. Sometimes a residential treatment program or boarding or alternate school for struggling students and troubled teens may be an option, or like hundreds of Canadian families have determined since 2001, the Venture Academy program with specialized clinical, therapeutic and educational supports. Parents who engage our services are usually looking for one main thing. They love and care for their children and want to see their son or daughter make positive changes and keep those positive changes when they go home. This is the organization’s number one priority. Everything we do at Venture Academy points back to helping troubled teens make and sustain those positive changes. It’s more than a mission statement: to us, it’s our purpose.
