Relapse and Fear For families with loved ones in recovery from addiction, the R-word is a very scary word. Family members typically fear relapse because they make sense of it as a disaster or failure
Sunshine Coast Health Centre is pleased to offer a Calgary location to serve new clients, alumni, and their families. As one of the top all-male drug rehabilitation and alcohol treatment centres in British Columbia, we have expanded to include outpatient addiction services in Calgary so that alumni can continue to access recovery support resources and connect with other alumni.
While Sunshine Coast Health Centre remains committed to providing drug rehab and alcohol treatment in Powell River, we also recognize the importance of having local Calgary-based support. Our Calgary office offers counselling and recovery services by appointment. You may also phone our Calgary office to register for our primary addiction treatment programs in Powell River, BC. During this call, we tell clients and/or their family members what to expect while staying in our treatment centre and help them begin their own journey of healing and growth.
Our Calgary-based alumni also regularly meet with fellow alumni for weekly support at this office and in other locations throughout the city.

Calgary was first called simply “The Elbow” or “Bow River Fort” then briefly “Brisebois” by Inspector A.E.Brisebois. This was not acceptable to Brisebois’ superior officers and Colonel James McLeod came up with the alternate title “Calgary” after his home in the Scottish Highlands.
The robe trade had removed the free roaming buffalo from the grasslands, so the Canadian government decided to use grass and cattle as a first stage in the process of colonization and opened the territory to ranching.
The railway came in 1883 and pioneer ranchers poured in from across Canada and beyond. In 1884, with a population of 4,000, Calgary was officially proclaimed a city. Its first boom was on.
