Our focus is to provide a best-in-class non-12 step methodology of drug rehabilitation for men in a residential setting in Powell River, BC, Canada
VANCOUVER, BC, October 07, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Sunshine Coast Health Centre, a top-rated drug rehabilitation, alcohol treatment, and trauma / PTSD program in British Columbia and throughout Canada, is proud to announce a post focused on "International Overdose Awareness Day," which occurred on August 31, 2022.
"Our focus is to provide a best-in-class non-12 step methodology of drug rehabilitation for men in a residential setting in Powell River, BC, Canada," explained Casey Jordan, Chief Marketing Officer. "Our post explores many of the very hard issues concerning overdoses in Canada, including facts and recommendations to deal with this crisis."
Interested persons can check out the full blog at https://www.sunshinecoasthealthcentre.ca/international-overdose-awareness-day/. The post shares key facts about the opioid crisis in Canada such as the fact that 96% of opioid-related deaths are accidental, that 56% of toxic drug deaths are happening inside homes, ending the stigma around addiction, and the sad fact that 21 people die every day in Canada from opioid toxicity. The post has links to key resources and is a good starting point for anyone dealing with drug addiction and/or drug rehabilitation issues. Another excellent resource is the new interview with the Centre's Medical Director, Jacques du Toit, at https://bc.ctvnews.ca/video?clipId=2512428. Dr. du Toit discusses opioids and suboxone during the week of International Overdose Awareness Day.
Persons who want to learn more about drug rehabilitation strategies can visit the page at https://www.sunshinecoasthealthcentre.ca/drug-alcohol-treatment/ or reach out for a confidential consultation. Indeed, many people start their recovery with so-called "detox" services, and the Centre has a robust "drug detox" or "medical program" at https://www.sunshinecoasthealthcentre.ca/medical-withdrawal/. That page explains that the on-site Medical Program provides immediate treatment to clients who would otherwise face significant obstacles in finding withdrawal management (aka "detox").
It should be noted that the Centre is male-only. Women are encouraged to visit the parallel "Georgia Strait" website at https://georgiastraitwomensclinic.ca/, and its own "detox" page at https://georgiastraitwomensclinic.ca/medical-withdrawal/.
WORKING ON THE OPIOID CRISIS ONE CLIENT AT A TIME
Here is background on this release. The "opioid crisis" in some ways is symptomatic of deeper societal and sociological issues, and the Centre's innovative "logotherapy" offers an evidence-based, non-religious approach that is ideal for many men and women (via the parallel Georgia Strait) program who desire such a program. The post explaining "International Overdose Awareness Day" is a small part of how the Centre conducts outreach to educate and inform the Canadian public.
