Amidst the drug and alcohol abuse crisis, we're reaching a tipping point in awareness of non 12 step methodologies to combat addiction.
VANCOUVER, British Columbia (PRWEB) November 29, 2018
Sunshine Coast Health Centre (SCHC), recognized as one of the top inpatient or residential drug rehabilitation and alcohol treatment programs in Canada utilizing a non 12-step methodology, is proud to announce a new video to YouTube. The short video aims to increase awareness of its program and its methodology which is different from the more common "12 Step" program. The Centre also focuses exclusively on men who suffer from drugs, alcohol, or other addictive behaviors.
“Amidst the drug and alcohol abuse crisis, we're reaching a tipping point in awareness of non 12 step methodologies to combat addiction,” explained Casey Jordan, Chief Marketing Officer. “Our methodology draws heavily on the work of Viktor Frankl and his work on meaning. We add in evidence-based treatment strategies to create one of the best inpatient or residential drug rehab and alcohol treatment programs in Canada. Our new video ad on YouTube aims to further increase awareness.”

ALTERNATIVES TO 12 STEP PROGRAMS: SO-CALLED NON 12 STEP METHODOLOGIES
Here is background on this release. First, it is no secret that Canada faces a growing addiction crisis, with the addition of opioids and the so-called opioid crisis to the litany of drug, alcohol, and other substance abuse problems. The demand is growing across Canadian society for public and private treatment programs, as there is no "one size fits all" methodology that works for all persons. Second, the 12 Step Program, first created in 1939, has the most prevalent "brand recognition" among treatment methodologies, but newer, evidence-based treatment methodologies are bringing alternatives to Canadian society. Among the Non 12-Step methodologies, increasing attention has been focused on the work of Viktor Frankl, who survived the Auschwitz concentration camp, which can be combined with evidence-based treatments that provide medical therapy as well as psychological assistance to clients. Finally, residential drug rehabilitation and alcohol treatment programs allow clients to "reboot" their lives in a safe, supportive environment before reentry into society. By offering a male-only program, Sunshine Coast also simplifies the focus on rehabilitation from substance abuse in a supportive, focused environment. The new YouTube video is a short advertisement for the Center and aims to spark interest in non 12-Step methodologies to combat drug, alcohol, and other substance abuse problems as well as showcase the advantages of inpatient programs to combat drug and alcohol dependencies.
