Sunshine Coast Health Centre, a top-rated drug rehab, alcohol treatment, and PTSD / trauma therapy program based in British Columbia Canada, is proud to announce the restart of “family and friend” visitations after a hiatus due to COVID-19. The visitations not only allow men in the program to see their family and friends but build on the strategy of empowerment that is critical to the Centre’s methodology.
“Our recovery strategy for addiction and trauma empowers the client as an active partner,” explained Casey Jordan, Chief Marketing Officer. “We are excited to restart our visitation program for friends and family, as healthy and positive social networks are a key component of recovery.”
Persons who would like to learn more can visit the primary website athttps://www.sunshinecoasthealthcentre.ca/ and reach out for a private one-on-one consultation. The methodology of the Centre is “non 12 step,” built on the “logotherapy” popularized by Viktor Frankl. Clients are encouraged to seek out and maintain healthy relationships with friends and families. Indeed, the Centre not only allows visitation by friends and family.
After recovery at the residential drug rehabilitation and alcohol treatment Centre, clients are encouraged to participate in “alumni” activities. These are activities outside of Powell River, British Columbia, Canada that are held throughout cities in Canada such as Vancouver, Victoria, and even Toronto. The goal is to solidify the new behaviours learned at the Centre and shore up the healthy lifestyles that are learned on site.
Persons who want to learn more about this “alumni” support can visithttps://www.sunshinecoasthealthcentre.ca/alumni-services-and-re-admission/. This page explains that developing interpersonal relatedness, self-definition, and intrinsic motivation doesn’t happen overnight. The Centre’s alumni have several support options once they return home; all at no additional cost. It’s important that there are no obstacles for alumni support afterwards, especially not financial ones.
This ongoing support is available until clients decide it is no longer needed. The renewal of family and friend visitation helps family and friends understand the process and “be there” for their loved one after he returns home.
Women can note that the affiliated treatment facility for women at https://georgiastraitwomensclinic.ca/, uses the same methodologies and techniques.
