VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 2, 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 an ambitious program of upgrades to its website for fall 2018. As 2018 comes to a close, many people who suffer from addiction begin to investigate their treatment options, so the website upgrades are rolling out just as the seriousness of fall and winter enters the collective consciousness.

"Our website is often the first point of contact with persons suffering from addiction as well as trauma and/or PTSD," explained Casey Jordan, Chief Marketing Officer. "Accordingly, our fall, 2018, upgrades are beefing up our content and making it easy for potential clients to learn about addiction as well as our innovative non-12 step methodology to combat drugs, alcohol, and other forms of substance abuse."

Here are some sample pages that offer new content for fall, 2018. First, there's the page on trauma therapy at Trauma is often suffered by first responders, and the program works at getting at the fundamental causes of trauma as opposed to the superficial causes. Clients are treated respectfully and seen as full partners in their treatment strategy. Second, there's the PTSD therapy page at PTSD is a growing problem throughout Canada, and many clients come to the Centre as one of Canada's leading programs of PTSD therapy. Third, both the page for alcohol treatment ( and drug rehab ( have had information overhauls as well.

Throughout, interested persons whether potential clients or loved ones or even journalists or bloggers in Canada are urged to reach out for a confidential consultation. No two clients are alike, and the Centre's methodology is to work with each client to create a customized treatment program whether against drugs, alcohol, substance abuse as well as trauma and/or PTSD. They can also check out Sunshine Coast's directory website at which is a directory of nonprofit and governmental programs in Canada to combat drug and alcohol addiction.


Sunshine Coast uses a unique non 12 step methodology as a treatment methodology. Many lay people are familiar with the popular 12 step program popularized by Alcoholics Anonymous and based on a religiously based twelve steps. While those programs may work for some people, others find better success with a non-religious methodology that is evidence based and treats the client with a strong dose of respect. Sunshine Coast uses a methodology based on Viktor Frankl's "psychology of meaning," which works with each client to discover fundamental psychological goals. Clients in this methodology are seen as deserving partners and given honest respect. The upgrades across the website seek to showcase this methodology across problems, whether those be drug addiction, alcohol dependency, or trauma and/or PTSD.


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'.
