Sunshine Coast Announces Calgary Drug Rehab and Alcohol Treatment.

Many people in Calgary find that a change of environment is a worthwhile investment as they begin their recovery journey from drugs or alcohol.

Sunshine Coast Health Centre, one of the top Centres in Canada for drug rehab and alcohol treatment, is proud to announce three key efforts focused on Calgary drug rehab and alcohol treatment issues from an information perspective. While based in Powell River, BC, the Centre draws heavily from Calgary and all of Alberta as clients seek out an evidence-based, non 12 step methodology for treatment for drugs, alcohol, trauma, and PTSD.

“Many people in Calgary find that a change of environment is a worthwhile investment as they begin their recovery journey from drugs or alcohol,” explained Casey Jordan, Chief Marketing Officer. “As part of our ambitious website upgrades for fall, 2018, we're excited to announce three key efforts that focus specifically on the needs of Calgary clients.”

The three key information elements are as follows. First and foremost, Sunshine Coast has deployed additional information upgrades to its Calgary drug and alcohol treatment informational page at Second, as noted on the page above, the Calgary information page has a link directly to the Google maps listing which now showcases seven reviews to the Calgary "Google My Business" listing. Those who want to go directly to the Google reviews can also visit Third, interested persons can visit Sunshine Coast's "Canada Drug Rehab" page at, which contains newly updated information on nonprofit and government resources to combat drug, alcohol, and other forms of substance dependency in Calgary.


Here is background on this release. The counterintuitive fact is that for many people who suffer from addiction to drugs or alcohol as well as possibly trauma or PTSD it makes sense for them to travel outside of their home city. A mental breakthrough is easier to achieve in a new environment, away from friends, family, and other "triggers" that might encourage a person struggling with addiction to either relapse or have a harder go of it. The problem is then the first steps of inquiry are not so easy. With a location in Powell River, BC, Sunshine Coast is not a local Calgary drug rehab or alcohol treatment clinic. What is to be done? The first step was confidential phone interaction, so that persons and loved ones can reach out via the telephone to an initial conversation about whether Sunshine Coast Health Centre will be a good fit. That was achieved just a few years ago. The next step has thus become information outreach, so that Calgary clients can learn via the website before they meet face-to-face during intake. The new information upgrades launched by Sunshine Coast Health Centre are aimed at combining the digital world with the real world, so that Alberta clients can realize that the best step towards dealing with their addiction might be to sign up to leave Calgary for a transformational engagement.


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'.
