Sunshine Coast Health Centre, a top-rated drug rehabilitation and alcohol treatment program in British Columbia, Canada, is proud to announce new successes on its YouTube channel. The Centre has increased its use of YouTube, as an excellent outreach mechanism to reach folks who may be suffering from drugs, alcohol, trauma, and/or PTSD and looking for treatment programs in British Columbia, including Vancouver or Victoria. The YouTube channel can be viewed at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC2U6mLcMcvPJDUY_cwbW9CA.
“Video is one of the best tools we have to do outreach to persons who might be seeking drug rehab and/or alcohol treatment options, ” explained Casey Jordan, Chief Marketing Officer. “We posted a commercial, for instance, which we are also running on Canadian television and it has been well-received. Channel subscriptions as a whole are approaching 800, and we have surpassed a quarter million video views on YouTube.”
Interested persons can watch an introductory video on Sunshine Coast Health Centre at https://youtu.be/wL2hrPA2GT0. That video, entitled, "More than meetings," is a brief introduction to the Centre's popular non-12 step methodology for treating drug and alcohol addiction plus includes stunning visuals of the Centre's facility in Powell River, British Columbia. It should be noted that the Centre services men, only, and uses a non-12 step methodology based on Viktor Frankl's "Logotherapy," which emphasizes the importance of meaning as an antidote to addiction. Secondarily, people can visit the link listed above to the YouTube Channel as a whole, and third, they are encouraged to visit the website at https://www.sunshinecoasthealthcentre.ca/, where they can learn more about the treatment methodology and even reach out for a confidential consultation.
THE POWER OF VIDEO FOR EDUCATION ON DRUG REHAB AND ALCOHOL TREATMENT ISSUES
Here is background on this release. It is no secret that Canada is in the throes of a crisis of addiction. The opioid crisis makes daily headlines, and persons who struggle with addiction to either alcohol and/or drugs are, unfortunately, more common than ever. In addition, trauma and PTSD are new problems that stressed-out first responders and others in important industries are struggling to address. One of the first places people go to for information is YouTube. YouTube's video format conveys information in an easy-to-absorb format, and its privacy allows people to search for, find, and view videos on topics such as drug or alcohol dependency that they might want to know about, but are reluctant to watch on the big screen TV in the family's living room. Many people also use their mobile phones when first researching how to deal with their addiction, or the addiction of a loved one.
SCHC serves men only in a residential setting, and has clients coming to its Centre from all over Canada, not only the Western cities and provinces such as Vancouver, Victoria, or other cities in British Columbia but also adjacent provinces such as Alberta (cities such as Calgary and Edmonton) and as far away as Toronto, Ontario. For these reasons, SCHC has enhanced its video outreach efforts, on both television and YouTube. Recent Channel milestones in terms of subscribers and video views show the importance of this outreach to educate Canadians on rehabilitation options. The Centre also offers a public-facing website at https://www.canadadrugrehab.ca/ which is an index of nonprofit and government addiction services.
