Best-in-Class Treatment Program for Addiction, Trauma & PTSD in British Columbia

​Sunshine Coast Health Centre, a leading addiction, trauma, and treatment program located in Powell River, British Columbia, Canada, at, is proud to announce plans for rTMS (Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) in 2020. rTMS, also known as intermittent theta burst stimulation (iTBS), has demonstrated efficacy for the treatment of major depressive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), schizophrenia with auditory hallucinations, impulsive decision making, and gambling addiction. A study found rTMS significantly improved working memory. Currently, experts are examining the efficacy of rTMS therapy for treating concurrent depression and alcohol use disorder.

“Our methodology focuses on best-in-class treatment options so we have a full toolbox of techniques to create an individualized, custom plan for the treatment of addiction, trauma and/or PTSD,” explained Casey Jordan, Chief Marketing Officer. “In some cases, rTMS therapy may be a strong option. We're excited to announce plans for rTMS in 2020.”

It should be noted that the Centre offers a "non 12 step" methodology, and interested persons can learn more about it at The foundation of the non 12 step program methodology for treating drug addiction, alcoholism, substance abuse, trauma, and PTSD is in Viktor Frankl’s proposition that the fundamental motivation in humans is the will to meaning. In other words, individuals need to make sense of their lives and pursue a personally meaningful existence. In line with Frankl’s theory, we see addiction as a result of an individual’s persistently frustrated attempts to live a personally meaningful life. Clients seeking this methodology for drug rehab, alcohol treatment, trauma, and PTSD come to the Centre (located in Powell River, British Columbia) not only from nearby cities such as Vancouver, Richmond, or Victoria, but also Calgary, Edmonton and even as far away as Toronto.


Sunshine Coast Health Centre is a 47-bed drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility exclusively designed for men, officially opened on March 15, 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 and competence), and intrinsic motivation. The Centre offers both drug rehabilitation and alcohol treatment near Vancouver, British Columbia, but also serves 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." The Centre hopes to launch a new segment of its programming exclusively for women later this fall.
