His Holiness the Dalai Lama honoured our Founder John Volken with the
Dalai Lama Humanitarian Award for effectively changing lives.

Our Founder

“I believe that once we have provided for our families, we should then work for the good of all; there are so many opportunities to make this a better world.”
– John Volken

Meet John Volken

John Volken Academy is a Therapeutic Community.
That means we’re in this together.

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.

Students are challenged daily.

But like turning a big ship around, turning a life around takes time. To expect a person with a history of substance abuse to learn and adopt all the tools needed to stay sober in just a few months is simply unrealistic.

At no extra cost, our students stay until the process is completed. Through education and work experience, students grow the skills they will need to stay sober and re-enter the workforce.
