The John Volken Academy is an Addiction Recovery centre that provides a minimum 2-year therapeutic recovery program. The principles of the recovery model focus on Mind, Body and Spirit. JVA combines a comprehensive program that allows each student to re-discover their soul and connections with family and friends. Students are actively involved in business ventures offered at all 3 JVA locations, Vancouver Canada, Seattle Washington & Phoenix Arizona. The 2-year JVA recovery program is heavily subsidized by its founder, John Volken, who following a very successful career in the furniture industry, sold all of his stores and started the JVA Foundation.
