British Columbia’s Sunshine Coast Health Centre (SCHC), which is regarded as one of Canada’s leading residential facilities for trauma, PTSD, alcohol and drug treatment programs, has just announced flexible new patient options for extended care.
What’s on Offer?
This new service empowers patients who have gained sufficient benefits from the intensiveness of primary treatment, yet, for various personal reasons, would like to remain at the center for a period of time. SCHC’s Chief Marketing Officer, Casey Jordan, notes: “Our goal is always to offer to clients the services that they want and need. Extended care allows certain clients to remain on site as they transition back into healthy living. It’s yet another option so that we can work with clients to create a customized treatment program that meets their unique needs”.
SCHC’s focus is on in-patient and residential services for men. These are conducted according to a non-12 step methodology. By providing this flexibility, patients are now free to drop into the facility in Powell River, BC, and work toward optimum health with highly trained, friendly, caring specialists.
A Unique Service
Although there are a large number of private treatment facilities within Canada, SCHC’s non-12 step program protocol is different. A spokesman stated that: “While other programs focus on abstinence or reducing harm, the staff at SCHC believes that the recovery process needs to move beyond mere healing. Instead, the Centre helps its clients experience personal transformation and full integration into society. This is an extremely important element to success, and one that is often overlooked.
More About Sunshine Coast
This comfortable alcohol and drug rehabilitation center, which was opened in 2004, specializes in helping male patients. It offers 47 beds in comfortable bedrooms with all the facilities that a patient could wish for. When someone is staying away from home, particularly for recovery treatment, a positive environment is an essential ingredient to their success. The type of drug rehabilitation it uses is founded on research conducted by Viktor Frankl. This is used in conjunction with Paul T.P. Wong’s methodology.
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. SCHC serves patients across the nation, especially those based in Alberta and British Columbia, as well as cities including Red Deer, Edmonton and Calgary.
