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 an Edmonton 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 Edmonton 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 Edmonton-based support. Our Edmonton office offers counselling and recovery services by appointment. You may also contact our Edmonton office by phone 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 Edmonton-based alumni also regularly meet with fellow alumni for weekly support at this office and in other locations throughout the city.

Edmonton did not receive its own transcontinental connection (Canadian Northern Railway) until 1905. By then, it had been selected to be the capital of the newly created province of Alberta and was emerging as the service centre for a huge agricultural region where many were settling.
When Strathcona and Edmonton amalgamated in 1912, they entered a frantic boom period. Their combined population was over 50,000 and may have reached 75,000 soon after, only to drop to 50,000 during the First World War. For the next 25 years Edmonton’s fortunes were closely linked with those of its agricultural resources. It grew in the good times, but stagnated or declined in the bad. By 1941 it was still a small city (93,800), ranking ninth in size in Canada. Its economy grew around regional wholesale trade, transportation, and the processing of agricultural produce. The only significant change in this period was Edmonton’s new role as an air transport centre for both trans-Canada flights and for bush flying into the North.
