Summary of Services

At Sunshine Coast, our addiction treatment program treats the full spectrum of body elements – the physical, psychological, social and spiritual.


Physical – the proper functioning of your body including strength, stamina and mobility.

Psychological – your thoughts, feelings and emotions that directly impact your actions.

Social – your relationship to family, friends, work colleagues and the larger community.

Spiritual – a sense of meaning that brings purpose to your life and good to the world.

At Sunshine Coast we treat the four elements of what it means to be a human being – the physical, psychological, social and spiritual. We do so because all-around health maximizes the possibility that a client’s recovery is sustainable and fulfilling. In each section below an icon is provided that indicates the primary health benefit of the service provided.

Medical & Psychiatric Services

Medical services include medical assessment, withdrawal management monitored by trained medical personnel (medical detoxification), medication management (including medications for co-existing medical conditions) and ongoing monitoring throughout a client’s stay. Furthermore, medical assessment helps create a comprehensive treatment plan that includes recommendations on diet and fitness.

Psychiatric services include a provisional psychiatric diagnosis and psychotropic drug therapy. All clients are seen within one week of admission by our psychiatrist. The provisional psychiatric diagnosis forms the basis of the treatment plan which is critical in ensuring that clients are treated for co-existing mental health issues.
