VANCOUVER, British Colombia, April 30, 2019 (Newswire.com) - Sunshine Coast Health Centre, one of the top drug rehab and alcohol treatment programs in British Columbia serving people from throughout the Province from Powell River to Vancouver to Victoria, is proud to announce a significant milestone: its 15th anniversary. The Centre is marking a significant event as one of the leading non 12 step programs in Canada to combat addition in every form to drugs and/or alcohol as well as industry-leading trauma and PTSD treatment programs.
“Fifteen years goes by pretty fast,” explained Casey Jordan, Chief Marketing Officer. “However, we look around and are very proud and excited about our past achievements as well as new innovations such as our focus on trauma and PTSD treatment options here in British Columbia. The future is exciting as we work with clients to improve their lives by reducing substance dependencies and improving their mental health vis-à-vis trauma and PTSD.”

15 YEARS VIA AN INNOVATIVE TREATMENT METHODOLOGY FOR DRUGS, ALCOHOL, AND TRAUMA
Here is background on this release. The history of addiction therapy is generally explained by the religiously oriented methodology of Alcoholics Anonymous or the so-called “Twelve Steps.” This methodology, while it does work for some people, does not always work for all people and newer evidence-based treatment methodologies emerged over the past few decades. Sunshine Coast as it celebrates its fifteen year anniversary is an example of a non-12 step program, located in British Columbia and serving people from not only Vancouver and Victoria, but from other provinces in Canada such as Alberta or Saskatchewan. The Centre thus provides a treatment option for drug and alcohol use disorders that is an alternative to the twelve step methodology.
Secondarily, the treatment methodology that emerged embraced the client’s full participation and encouraged clients to be proactive in their recovery. This more positive relationship between client and therapist has proven to be a cornerstone of the methodology over the past fifteen years. In addition, Sunshine Coast has been a best-in-class treatment Centre amidst the current crisis of opiate addiction in Canada, using prescription drug therapies where indicated by evidence-based research. In summary, the marking of this milestone is a bright light during the struggle in Canada to cope with addiction in all its forms. Journalists, bloggers, and others looking for expert commentary on these issues are encouraged to reach out to the Centre for interview opportunities.
