With drug addiction at a critical level in British Columbia, there are a lot of treatment options – some more successful than others. Located in Surrey, B.C. is the John Volken Academy. This unique treatment facility has an astonishing success rate and an incredible story to go with it. John Volken is the founder. This former millionaire donated all of his money and now dedicates his time to freeing young people from their addictions. He was even honoured with the Dalai Lama Humanitarian Award for his efforts. In the midst of an overdose crisis, CKNW’s Niki Reitmayer is taking a focused look at how one treatment facility is literally saving lives.
