It should be noted that persons come not only from British Columbia but from Alberta and Saskatchewan provinces to the Centre.


Here is the background on this release. In a Somatic Counseling session, the client will talk about what’s coming up for them as they would with any form of talk therapy. The therapist will gently help the client increase awareness of emotions, bodily sensations, and behaviours. Some of the ways in which the therapist may do this is by bringing focused attention to one's body as the client shares their story, such as their physical sensations that accompany their feelings or any movements. The therapist also provides somatic exercises at this time. Everything done is consent-based in a non-judgemental environment.


Sunshine Coast Health Centre is a 47-bed drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility exclusively designed for men, officially opened on the 15th of March 2004. The Centre has a philosophy of care that goes beyond just addiction to include personal transformation based on three key therapeutic principles: interpersonal relatedness, self definition (autonomy & competence), and intrinsic motivation. The Centre offers both drug rehabilitation and alcohol treatment near Vancouver, BC, but serving patients across Canada, particularly British Columbia and Alberta and cities such as Calgary, Edmonton and Red Deer. Sunshine Coast Health Centre uses a form of drug rehabilitation based on the research of Viktor Frankl and methodology of Paul T.P. Wong, namely 'Meaning ­Centered Therapy'.
