I recently attended the Family Weekend at Sunshine Coast Health Centre and was so impressed with not only the tranquil beauty of the facility but, more importantly, the commitment of the staff in supporting the residents in all aspects of their journey to recovery. Myself and other Family Weekend participants were directly exposed to the tenets of the program thus facilitating our own acceptance of our loved ones' hardships or failings through to confidence that they will leave well armed with the tools to effectively manage their sobriety. It was truly a worthwhile experience and I left for home fully convinced that our selection of SCHC as the facility to bring our loved one through this very difficult journey was absolutely the right choice. We are so grateful for their professional skills and unwavering support for the whole family.
