A Commitment to Continuing Education
Professionals involved in the drug rehabilitation and alcohol treatment industry confront, on the one hand, an age-old problem (the problem of addiction) and yet new challenges (e.g., new drugs invented or new social problems) and new methods of treatment. It is only by making a continuing commitment to education that centers like Sunshine Coast Health Center can retain their status as a leading private facility in Canada for treatment and rehabilitation. Seminars such as the upcoming 'Treating Addiction' seminar are an important place for industry get-togethers and sharing ideas and challenges. With an evidence-based methodology, the industry can move forward.
