The Program

An effective, long-term addiction treatment program — for lasting sobriety. After a one time intake fee, the program is free.

John Volken Academy is a Therapeutic Community. Our approach is holistic, practical and effective for long-term sobriety. The program is two years in length and requires a one-time intake fee of $5,000. After that, the program is free.

Group Work & Peer Counseling

With our Therapeutic Community approach to addiction treatment, all students participate in group and peer to peer counseling. The days are structured around the activities supporting the Therapeutic Community, along with opportunities to gain work experience and continue one’s education. Participants regularly meet to discover the root causes of substance abuse and to encourage healing. It’s reported regularly that this treatment has not only helped address addiction, but helped students learn to love themselves.

Safety and acceptance from peers is a huge contributor to healing. Community is the main change agent of our program.

Education Opportunities

Whether you need to finish high school, or are looking to take university level courses, there are resources and staff at JVA to help you reach your educational goals. From tutoring to online courses, learning is priority during a participant’s time here.

Job & Life Skills

Job and life skills training is an integral part of our addiction treatment program. Each JVA facility has unique opportunities for job and life skills training. From hands-on training on a ranch, to gaining experience in a greenhouse or in sales, students gradually develop job-skills that will help them re-enter the workforce. Providing job training and teaching skills required to find a job sets John Volken Academy apart from other addiction treatment centers. We’ve found this allows participants to step back into a job more successfully upon completing the program and ultimately maintain sobriety and a healthy lifestyle.
