​Sunshine Coast Health Centre, a best-in-class drug rehab and alcohol treatment program based in Powell River, British Columbia at, is proud to announce important managerial and staff upgrades to better serve its clientele. The Centre is announcing staff upgrades to substantially decrease the ratio of clients to staff.

“Working with clients on their drug or alcohol dependencies as well as potential trauma or PTSD issues is a team sport,” explained Casey Jordan, Chief Marketing Officer. “We are excited to announce new, managerial staff enhancements that reduce this ratio and will better serve our clientele.”

The managerial enhancements include the following: a manager for frontline/operations (kitchen and housekeeping as well as grounds and building maintenance), medical/nursing, finance, as well as full managerial staffing in marketing and communications, human resources, bodywork and fitness ("Integrative Health"), Client Services, and Clinical Management which has two managers. Including the CEO, this now means that ten key employees are there to assist clients in their recovery journey.


Here is background on this release. Sunshine Coast Health Centre has been steadily expanding since its foundation in 2004 to the point that it is recognized as one of the best, if not the best, non 12 step programs in Canada. The Centre focuses on male patients only, and offers best-in-class services from drug detox to residential recovery. Clients come from not only Vancouver or Victoria in British Columbia but from nearby cities in other provinces such as Calgary or Alberta. It's no accident that when folks search for drug rehab or alcohol treatment centres in British Columbia, they quickly find Sunshine Coast Health Centre.

One of the key components to success is adequate staffing. It goes without saying that the staff treat every client with respect, and focus on the Non 12 Step methodology based on Viktor Frankl's "methodology of meaning." But in addition to the direct staff, the indirect management and staff keep the Centre running cleanly and efficiently so that clients can concentrate on their recovery journey. 

Another way to look at the enhancements in staff is to examine the Centre's detailed "daily schedule" at This document shows, for example, that each day, hot meals are prepared for clients (hence the need for staff), as well as many group and/or individual therapy sessions (hence the need for more professional staff), etc. Classes in yoga and meditation as well as daily outings or artistic activities round out the schedule, and of course, physical fitness is a priority at the Centre. By fully staffing the Centre, Sunshine Coast makes it possible for clients to concentrate on their recovery journey.


Sunshine Coast Health Centre is a 47-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'.
