Humanity's search for meaning is a communicative act, and in today's Internet society much of that search occurs on the Web.
(PRWEB) December 20, 2015
Sunshine Coast Health Center, the leading non-12 step program of drug rehabilitation and alcohol treatment in Canada at http://www.sunshinecoasthealthcentre.ca, is proud to announce an exciting Web development project with INPM (The International Network on Personal Meaning). The INPM is a learned society in Canada, dedicated to advancing the legacy and vision of Dr. Viktor Frankl, the founder of logotherapy.
"Humanity's search for meaning is a communicative act, and in today's Internet society much of that search occurs on the Web," explained Casey Jordan, Marketing Manager for the Center. "By working with INPM on its website, we hope to leverage our own expertise in web design and communication combined with our shared passion for the ideas of Viktor Frankl and their use in combating addictions to drugs or alcohol."
The Importance of the Web to Non-12 Step Methodologies
Among the most prominent methods of working against substance abuse, the most common is probably the "12 Step Method" made popular by Alcoholics Anonymous. While a beneficial method for many people, many others do not find their place in this particular method. Non-12 step methods such as those based on the work of Viktor Frankl may build on a person's search for meaning yet not depend on a religious framework, or at least be agnostic about religion in general. As a learned society in Canada, INPM encourages high quality scientific research on the positive psychology of meaning in major life domains, with an eye to contribute significantly to the well-being of individuals and communities. In this Internet age, a modern website is a critical communication technology. This new project aims to improve the website and thus its ability to communicate the profound ideas of Viktor Frankl to a new generation.
