Our non-12-step program methodology is unique and lets us be far more than an addiction treatment facility. While other centres focus on abstinence or harm reduction, we focus on helping our clients solve the underlying issues driving addictive behaviour or mental health suffering. This allows all clients to get the full benefit of our program.
Sunshine Coast is an advanced health facility that gives working men an opportunity to explore their problem drinking or drug use while also building camaraderie with other men and professionals experiencing similar issues. This shared experience has been shown to provide the most therapeutic value.
Our desire to provide advanced and specialized care for men continues to grow since opening in 2004. We are a licensed residential mental health and addiction treatment program that has been accredited since 2012 and a certified B Corp since 2018. Our philosophy is based on a non-12-step, meaning-centered methodology, that interconnects all our services including medical withdrawal, anger management, rTMS, trauma therapy, and PTSD treatment.
We believe that every client deserves to have a highly skilled, compassionate, and curious team of professionals to help them. Our team provides a very wide range of proven health treatments such as EMDR, Hypnotherapy, and Somatic Therapy because while some treatments help many, nothing works for everyone. Our extensive team of staff and limited peer group size lets us offer the services of a large facility with the privacy and attention of a small one.
We are the only men’s only program of its kind in Canada, and this is just one of the features that makes us stand out from the rest. During your stay, you’ll also experience the following services exclusive to Sunshine Coast: Medical and psychiatric teams who work closely with each client An all professional counselling team with minimum of a graduate degree Truly personalized recovery programs written for each individual Comprehensive mental health assessment and treatment A high functioning and motivated all-male peer group Individual accommodation including private baths and kitchens Significant 1-1 counselling Long-term aftercare across Canada Extensive fitness and recreation programs Family counselling and education weekend for multiple family members
