Alcohol Treatment, British Columbia

Sunshine Coast Health Centre (www.sunshinecoasthealthcentre.ca), long deemed one of the top drug rehabilitation and alcohol treatment programs in British Columbia, Canada, is proud to announce a new nutritionist, Megan White, for their program. Ms. White is already a staff nurse at SCHC, and her new responsibilities will bolster the Centre's program to assist clients in improving their nutrition.

“Improving health through both physical exercise and better nutrition is one of the goals of our program,” explained Casey Jordan, Chief Marketing Officer. “We're excited about Megan's new responsibilities, and look forward to further improvements in the nutrition services we offer to our drug rehab and alcohol treatment clients at our primary location in Powell River, British Columbia, Canada.”

To learn more about the Centre's programs for fitness and diet, visit https://www.sunshinecoasthealthcentre.ca/fitness-diet. That page explains fitness therapy, yoga and meditation, and diet as three key components to improved outcomes. It explains as well that there are three phases to diet at the Centre, namely: 1) an initial diet consultation analyzing a client's diet and creating a customized diet plan, 2) mid-treatment diet consultation evaluating changes to date and issuing recommendations, and 3) a final diet consultation focusing on specific foods and recommendations for sleep and exercise upon release.


SHCH uses a methodology to understand addiction based on the pioneering work of Viktor Frankl, who wrote "Man's Search for Meaning" out of his experience in the Holocaust of World War II. The methodology has become an alternative to the popular faith-based methodology common to Alcoholics Anonymous / Narcotics Anonymous and gives persons a valuable alternative in their struggle to overcome addiction. Clients come to SCHC from all over Canada, not only the western cities and provinces such as Vancouver, Victoria, or other cities in British Columbia but also adjacent provinces such as Alberta (cities such as Calgary and Edmonton) and as far away as Toronto, Ontario. Indeed, the Centre publishes a helpful guide to treatment options in cities such as Calgary (https://www.sunshinecoasthealthcentre.ca/drug_rehab_location/calgary-rehab) and a detailed, independent website on drug rehab and alcohol treatment at http://www.canadadrugrehab.ca.

Nutrition and fitness are key components of the treatment methodology, and the new responsibilities of Ms. White are indicative of a growing focus on synergies between body and mind as an effective treatment methodology for drug and alcohol use disorders as well as other addictions.


Sunshine Coast Health Centre is a 42-bed drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility exclusively designed for men, officially opened on the 15th of March 2004. The Centre has a philosophy of care that goes beyond just addiction to include personal transformation based on three key therapeutic principles: interpersonal relatedness, self-definition (autonomy & competence), and intrinsic motivation. The Centre offers both drug rehabilitation and alcohol treatment near Vancouver, BC, but serving patients across Canada, particularly British Columbia and Alberta and cities such as Calgary, Edmonton, and Red Deer. Sunshine Coast Health Centre uses a form of drug rehabilitation based on the research of Viktor Frankl and methodology of Paul T.P. Wong, namely 'Meaning ­Centered Therapy'.
