An Innovative Methodology for Drug Rehabilitation and Alcohol Treatment

While the most commonly known methodology for drug rehab and alcohol treatment is the "12 Step" methodology, Sunshine Coast Health Centre uses alternative methodologies that are non-12 step and based on the "Logos" therapy popularized by Viktor Frankl. (To learn more about the Centre's philosophy, visit https://www.sunshinecoasthealthcentre.ca/about-us/). By participating in industry events such as the NIDA Forum, Sunshine Coast and its key employees are able to share their insights with others and gain information as well from alternative viewpoints. Assisting clients to free themselves from drugs and/or alcohol is a process that is based in psychology. Therefore, a continued openness to new ideas and new methodologies as well as an education based in factual evidence, and methodologies that are evidence-based, is critical to effective treatment strategies.
