A THREE THOUSAND PERSON MILESTONE VIA A NON 12 STEP METHODOLOGY
Here is background on this release. Sunshine Coast Health Centre is acknowledging a significant milestone: over three thousand clients have received assistance vis-a-vis drug rehabilitation, alcohol treatment, PTSD or trauma treatment, and/or other interrelated issues. The Centre uses a unique "non 12 step" methodology based on the pioneering work of Viktor Frankl, who created a "methodology of meaning." The key insight is that individuals who recover a purpose in their lives tend to recover from addiction or other self-destructive behaviors.
The foundation of the Centre's 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.
Before coming to Sunshine Coast, clients illustrate what life is like when someone lacks personal meaning. In spite of having the outward appearance of success such as families, social circles, good jobs, and material possessions, clients describe their inner world as one beset by boredom, anger, depression, loneliness, and a nagging feeling of emptiness (like lost souls wandering without a direction).
Clients also report feeling different, as if they do not fit in the world. This sense of separateness and brokenness lies at the heart of why they turn to drugs, alcohol, or other forms of addiction. A non 12 step methodology, therefore, works on helping them to identify meaningfulness in their lives without being religion-based. By reaching a three thousand client milestone, Sunshine Coast has done its part towards validating the brilliance of Viktor Frankl and how his methodology can help in drug rehabilitation and alcohol treatment programs.
