SUPPORTING EDUCATION ON ALCOHOL TREATMENT OPTIONS
Here is background on this release. Sunshine Coast Health Centre offers treatment services including drug rehabilitation, alcohol treatment, PTSD / trauma, and addiction therapy. Helping clients recover from alcohol is a foundational part of the program. Realistically, many clients start their journey first on the Internet, researching and reading blog posts and articles on alcoholism, alcohol treatment, and methodologies such as the "non 12 step methodology" that the Centre uses. By publicizing new posts to the blog, the Centre hopes to help people on their early steps of their recovery journey. It should be noted that the program focuses on males; a parallel program for women is offered at the Georgia Strait Women's Clinic (https://georgiastraitwomensclinic.ca/). In both cases, the methodology is non 12 step, based on the "Logotherapy" pioneered by Viktro Frankl.
