Sunshine Coast Health Centre is one of the best PTSD treatment centres in Canada. The Centre is announcing participation in a MAPS (Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies) Study on psychedelics.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Mar. 27, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Sunshine Coast Health Centre, one of the best drug rehab

Centres in British Columbia, Canada, is proud to announce participation in a MAPS study on psychedelics. MAPS (Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies) is a leading Canadian organization dedicated to researching whether, and to what extent, psychedelic substances might be of assistance in treating depression, anxiety, trauma and other underlying causes that might be at the root of addiction to drugs and alcohol.

"As one of Canada's best-in-class drug rehabilitation Centres, we're excited to participate in research to create evidence-based treatment methodologies," explained Casey Jordan, Chief Marketing Officer. "The MAPS study is focused on PTSD (Post-traumatic Stress Disorder) and whether psychedelics can be used as a treatment methodology."

Interested persons are encouraged to view a video presentation by MAPS on the topic at https://youtu.be/OMYbPD3It8c. MAPS is studying an investigational drug (MDMA) used in combination with psychotherapy. The study takes place in Vancouver, BC, Canada. The full study title is "Long Term Follow-up to An Open-Label, Multi-Site Phase 2 Study of the Safety and Effect of Manualized MDMA-Assisted Psychotherapy for the Treatment of Severe Posttraumatic Stress Disorder - Canada." Persons interested in the Centre's PTSD treatment strategy can visit https://www.sunshinecoasthealthcentre.ca/ptsd-therapy-program/ or reach out to the help line at 866-487-9010. Each individual is unique, and the Centre staff can work with a client to help figure out the best treatment methodology relevant to his experience.

NEW METHODOLOGIES IN PTSD TREATMENTS

Here is background on this release. PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) is a growing problem throughout Canada. First responders and others who confront stress on a day-to-day basis are among those most likely to suffer from trauma and therefore seek out PTSD treatment programs in Canada. The PTSD program is available to first responders (firefighters, paramedics, police, RCMP), veterans, armed forces, corrections officers, and other "helping" professionals who are struggling with work-related stress injuries. This program involves intensive medical, psychiatric, and psychology care one on one and in groups.

The program focuses on providing clients with (1) therapies designed to build self regulation skills to deal with dissociation, anxiety, depression, anger, and other symptoms of trauma/PTSD, and (2) therapies designed to help clients make sense of suffering and pain so they can go forward in pursuit of a meaningful life. For these reasons, Sunshine Coast Health Centre is proud to announce participation in a MAPS study on psychedelics.
