Here is background on the release. In the Centre’s mental health and drug and alcohol treatment programs, clients receive daily group therapy and a minimum of one individual counseling session each week. By combining Meaning-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Narrative Therapy, the Centre is able to offer various individualized non 12-step treatment options based on client needs identified by the client and recommendations of clinical staff. 

This release builds on the March 31, 2020 announcement on rTMS options, available at https://www.newswire.com/news/sunshine-coast-health-centre-announces-launch-of-rtms-treatment-option-21117462. rTMS, also known as intermittent theta-burst stimulation (iTBS), has demonstrated efficacy for the treatment of major depressive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), schizophrenia with auditory hallucinations, impulsive decision making, and gambling addiction. A study found rTMS significantly improved working memory. That announcement can be read at https://jm-seo.net/d5ed1. This treatment methodology is being announced as available, now, for both men and women.        


Sunshine Coast Health Centre is a 47-bed drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility exclusively designed for men, officially opened on the 15th of March 2004.
