VANCOUVER, B.C., April 23, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Sunshine Coast Health Centre, one of the top Centres in British Columbia for drug, alcohol, trauma, and PTSD treatment, is proud to announce a significant historical milestone. The Centre has now assisted in the recovery of over 2500 clients since its founding in 2004.

"When we begin in 2004, we were simply one among the masses of addiction treatment centres. Now, since 2008, we've become pioneers in a non 12 step methodology for drug rehabilitation and alcohol treatment in Canada," explained Casey Jordan, Chief Marketing Officer. "We are so proud to celebrate, along with our clients, our 2500th client as we assist them in their recovery journey from drugs, alcohol, and other forms of addiction."


Many Canadians who know just a little about recovery from drugs and/or alcohol may know the "Twelve Step Method" made popular by Alcoholics Anonymous. What they may not know is that this methodology isn't for everyone and that other treatment philosophies co-exist in Canada. Sunshine Coast Health Centre, for example, is known as one of the leading practitioners of "meaning therapy," based on the work of Viktor Frankl. Frankl was an Austrian neurologist and psychiatrist as well as a Holocaust survivor. He was the founder of logotherapy, which is a form of existential analysis, and he wrote the best-selling book "Man's Search for Meaning" to chronicle his experiences as a concentration camp inmate. This led him to discover the importance of finding meaning in all forms of existence, even the most brutal ones, and thus, a reason to continue living. This philosophy then became foundational in new approaches to treating addictive behavior. To learn more about this non 12 step methodology, visit

By celebrating its 2500th client, Sunshine Coast has brought a new methodology of treatment to drug rehabilitation and alcohol treatment. The Centre is male only with is primary facility in Powell River, BC, but with intake offices in cities as diverse as Vancouver and Victoria in BC, and Edmonton and Calgary in Alberta. In addition, in 2018, the Centre is broadening its mandate to focus on trauma therapy and PTSD treatment in the recognition that there are many first responders and other high-stress occupations not receiving the support they need.

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'.
