I received a fascinating and welcome phone call this morning from Gordon Hay, Executive Director and Founder of Venture Academy.

Gordon wanted to learn more about DPNC. We had a marvelous conversation and discovered that we are very much on the same page regarding abstinence based prevention and treatment.

I confess that I was not familiar at all with Venture Academy - a very complex and thorough program for troubled teens, operating in British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario  - but I have now spent some time reading their website, and I encourage you to do so as well.

This looks like another first-rate resource. The facility in British Columbia operates in Kelowna.

Gordon Hay has assured us that Venture will join the DPNC membership and perhaps we can look forward to seeing him and  colleague or two at our next get-together in the spring.

If you'd like to welcome Gordon and Venture into our common cause, you can say "Hello" to directly at
