The John Volken Academy is a long-term residential rehab that follows a therapeutic community model to treat alcohol and drug addiction. The facility believes that peer-to-peer interaction, support and accountability is crucial when it comes to recovery. The Academy also helps individuals make healthy lifestyle changes while encouraging them to further their educations and/or career paths. Led by a team of addiction professionals, healthy-living specialists and psychologists, clients are guided through four “essential elements” for a successful recovery (the cause, sufficient time, a new lifestyle and necessary tools). Once completed, clients (who are referred to as “students” at the Academy) graduate as responsible, contributing members of society, with the will and the tools to become the best that they can be.

This place is the worst. The program directors use the addicts to line their own pockets. The managers lie to their customers. They sell rehab donations for cash. Managers were on drugs when I attended and someone even overdosed. I came here for help, none was given. Beware of this place.

My son will be graduating this program in a few months. Yes, it has been tough for him, and also me, as his parent. That being said, it makes me so proud to see the person he has become. He has had complaints along the way, but, I see that as unavoidable. He spent a lot of years as an addict, and no help for his future. This program saved his life. Thank you JVA!

My son has been at the Welcome Home Ranch for 4 months now and it feels like he has already learned a life time of change. The biggest one being that he likes who he is sober and he experiencing lasting joy and a newfound zest for life. He works hard, he plays hard and meanwhile his brain is forming lasting pathways to a fulfilling, amazing life. If you are really ready to purge yourself of the pain of addiction this is the place that will offer relief. Go in with the right attitude and willingness to put forth real effort and you will not fail!
