"Our support of relevant Canadian non-profits is very important to our mission to be a top Canadian center for drug and alcohol abuse treatment," explained Casey Jordan, Chief Marketing Officer. "The Wounded Warrior program provides excellent services and outreach for Canadian veterans. Both Sunshine Coast and Wounded Warriors operate in that part of Canadian society that seeks to reach out to those in need of compassion, understanding, and professional assistance."

Service dogs can be an important part of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), and Sunshine Coast Health Centre (SCHC) has focused its support of Wounded Warriors in that area. "We have seen first hand in the alumni at SCHC that PTSD service dogs can provide crucial support for a veteran as they work towards freedom from symptoms," explained Jordan further. For more information on that part of the Wounded Warriors program interested parties are directed to visit their website, and click on the left navigation to "How We Help," and then to "PTSD Service Dogs." Wounded Warriors Canada is proud to be the nation's largest charitable donor supporting PTSD Animal Assisted programming. Since 2012, WWC has donated over $600,000 to ensure PTSD Service Dogs and Equine Therapy is available, at no cost, no matter where the veteran resides in Canada.

Sunshine Coast Health Centre uses a non-12 step methodology to work with clients against substance abuse. The starting point of the program is Viktor Frankl’s proposition that the fundamental motivation in humans is the will to meaning, the need of the individual to make sense of his or her life and pursue a personally meaningful existence. In line with Frankl’s theory, Sunshine Coast believes that addiction arises as a result of an individual’s persistently frustrated attempts to live a personally meaningful life. By announcing its renewed financial support of the Wounded Warriors service dog program, the Center is supporting an excellent way to bring friendship and meaning into life by means of man's (and woman's) best friend: the dog.
