What You Should Know Before Purchasing Private Drug Rehab:

Staff Qualifications

The following questions are good questions to ask private adult addiction treatment providers in Canada:

Consumer Protection Question #1: Do you Have a Clinical/Program Director? What are his/her credentials?

Rationale: Typically, a clinical/program director is responsible for overseeing, supporting, and maintaining the quality of care for a program. A clinical/program director may have an advanced degree in a related field, like clinical psychology, and may be involved in providing individual therapy, assessment and consultation, staff training and development, and managing or supervising program components.

Staff & Facility

In order to run an effective residential treatment program, you need to have outstanding staff and a therapeutic setting.

Meet the Staff at our Drug Rehabilitation Program

You can’t run a drug rehab program without capable staff, especially when treating other mental health issues such as trauma and depression. Our commitment to the whole human being means having staff who specialize in the physical (medical, fitness, diet), the psychological (psychotherapy), social, and spiritual aspects of recovery. Psychotherapists at Sunshine Coast Health Centre must have a minimum of a master’s degree. See below, for a current list of all of our staff, including a mini-bio and their e-mail.

Client Testimonials About the Staff

It is the staff who make SCHC what it is. There are too many names and roles too mention, but everyone I dealt with from intake to discharge and aftercare are professional, caring, and knowledgeable. I am still in touch with the staff and my counsellor. Hats off to you all at SCHC for helping me realize my full potential!

Randy

Please compliment Craig for his cheerfulness. It makes the day so much easier to face. He is steady and pleasant all the time. I also would like the rest of the staff to know that it is so nice to see people happy doing their jobs. This makes it easier to face sobriety. Something else that should be said is that the ownership needs to be complimented for their vision and foresight around what treatment should be. They need to be congratulated on developing SCHC into what it is now and for their vision for what it can become.

Testimonials

Having past experience with 12 step programs, I found that one of the first things I notice about SCHC was that it’s not a 12 step. I did a bit reading and talked to some staff before I came here and I felt it was very much a better approach.
