The Other Side Academy
Mike chats with Executive Director Dave Durocher. The Other Side Academy is based on the methodology developed over the last 40 years known as the Therapeutic Community Model. Rather than hire professional therapeutic staff, we have hired ex-convicts and ex-addicts who graduated from therapeutic communities to train our students, manage the facility and help run our vocational training schools. The Other Side Academy adheres to the holistic principles of the therapeutic community that encourages individuals to take part in their treatment process as full partners, not as objects or patients.
