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

Victoria is Western Canada’s oldest city. Its history began in 1843, when James Douglas chose Victoria (then known as Camosack), as a Hudson Bay Company trading post. The post was eventually renamed Fort Victoria, in honour of Queen Victoria.
Then in 1858 the Fraser Valley gold rush lead to rapid growth in Victoria as it was the main port of entry to the Colonies of Vancouver Island and British Columbia. In 1852, the name Victoria was adopted for the townsite that had grown up around the fort and on August 2, 1862 it was incorporated as a city. In 1866, the colonies combined and Victoria became the colonial capital. The city was later established as the provincial capital when British Columbia joined the Canadian Confederation in 1871.
In the twentieth century, Victoria evolved as a city of government, retirement and tourism. The City remains, however, Canada’s western naval base and home to a major fishing fleet. Information Technology is now one of the largest industries in the city and the area is increasingly developing as a marine, forestry and agricultural research centre. Victoria is also noted for its fine educational institutions including the University of Victoria, Camosun College, and Royal Roads University.
