DO YOU NEED HELP? DOES SOMEONE YOU KNOW NEED HELP?
Getting help at our drug and alcohol treatment program starts with a free non-obligation phone call or an e-mail.
Call now toll-free at: 1-866-487-9010
Our goal in the early stages of your search for alcohol and drug treatment is to help you make an informed decision in your choice of treatment and clear up some commonly held misconceptions about addiction and the process of drug rehabilitation treatment.
If Sunshine Coast Health Center is a good fit for you or a loved one and you like what you hear about our program, great! If, for any reason, you believe your needs will be better met in another drug and alcohol treatment program, we will point you in the right direction.
You can browse our website or you can pick up the phone and call us: the choice is yours.
