Showcasing an Innovative Methodology to Combat Addiction on YouTube
While the most common methodology used in drug rehab and alcohol addiction may be the "Twelve Step" method made popular by Alcoholics Anonymous, Sunshine Coast Health Centre offers an alternative methodology based on the psychology of meaning of Viktor Frankl. This non 12 step methodology offers an alternative to people, and the Centre's YouTube channel is one mechanism of outreach to the general public. Among the more popular videos, for example, is one entitled, 'Why Non 12-step?' This video now tops 2,350 views, and features the personal stories of two clients who found a greater affinity with the non 12-step methodology. Regardless of which methodology one chooses, the YouTube videos are an important resource available to the lay public to educate themselves as to alternative methodologies to assist in recovery from drug, alcohol, and other substance addictions.
