Drug Rehab and Alcohol Treatment Program - British Columbia (BC), Canada

Sunshine Coast Health Centre, considered one of the best drug rehab and alcohol treatment programs in British Columbia, is pleased to announce the recipient of its 2017 scholarship for the 2017-2018 school year. The recipient is Ms. Kirsten Ostler from Edmonton, AB. Ms. Ostler is her Masters in Counselling Psychology at Yorkville University in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada.

"One of our primary goals is to encourage the growth of knowledge of evidence-based treatments of drug, alcohol, and substance addiction. We are very excited about the work of Ms. Ostler and her commitment to education and research," explained Casey Jordan, Chief Marketing Officer. "Ms. Ostler was an excellent candidate and wrote a detailed essay on public detox and treatment services in Alberta as part of her application."

Journalists and others interested in the details of the scholarship should visit the website and reach out for interview opportunities.

It should be noted that the scholarship will continue for the 2018/2019 school year. The focus remains on issues concerning drug rehabilitation and/or alcohol treatment and information can be found at Those interested in the Centre's drug rehab and/or alcohol treatment programs should visit the homepage at Persons interested in exploring drug, alcohol, and detox options throughout Canada should visit, which is a sister site to Sunshine Coast.


Ms. Ostler wrote a very interesting essay on the struggles of accessing public detox and treatment services in Alberta which she witnessed during a practicum with the Alberta Health Services. Upon graduation, she hopes to work in the field supporting youth and young adults with addictions. Her ultimate goal is to open her own drop-in program for youth with addictions in Edmonton that includes walk-in counseling, detox, and stabilization.

The topics covered by Ms. Ostler are key to the success of drug rehabilitation, alcohol treatment, and detox programs in Canada. Especially in the wake of the so-called "Opiate epidemic," cities and provinces throughout Canada are struggling to provide services as needed by the impacted public. Public detox and treatment programs have a critical role to play, as do both "Twelve Step" and "Non-Twelve Step" methodologies.

It should be noted that Sunshine Coast Health Centre is a leading practitioner of a non-twelve step methodology. Persons interested in learning more about the non-twelve step methodology should visit The foundation of the Centre's programs 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, Sunshine Coast sees addiction as a result of an individual's persistently frustrated attempts to live a personally meaningful life.


Sunshine Coast Health Centre is a 36­ bed drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility exclusively designed for men, officially opened on the 15th of March, 2014. 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 methodology of Viktor Frankl, namely 'Meaning ­Centered Therapy.'
