About Sunshine Coast Health Centre

COVID-19 Update (Mar 25, 2020):Learn how Sunshine Coast has adjusted operations to continue to support patients and families in response to COVID-19. One way is they are offering online support for families of clients and alumni.

Sunshine Coast Health Centre is a men-only residential centre, offering treatment for substance abuse as well as addressing mental health disorders, such as PTSD, trauma, and depression.

Identifying as non-12-Step, the treatment philosophy empowers the individual as the author to their own life and the program is based on meaning-centered therapy. Therapists will help clients gain awareness of who they are, how they fit into the world, as well as their strengths and limitations.

Located on 9 beautiful acres, with private oceanfront on British Columbia’s Sunshine Coast, the centre draws on the healing power of nature to contribute to one’s recovery.

Non 12-Step

While other programs focus on abstinence or reducing harm, we believe the recovery process needs to move beyond mere healing. At Sunshine Coast Health Centre, we help our clients experience personal transformation and full integration into society.

Designed for Working Professionals

Clients at our facility come from a variety of professional backgrounds. From military and first responders to business owners and CEOs of technology companies, we provide an environment supportive of individuals who are unable to step away 100% from work while they attend addiction treatment.

An Oceanfront Retreat

Sunshine Coast Health Centre offers an unparalleled setting, located on 9 private acres of serene oceanfront property along British Columbia’s Sunshine Coast. Nestled between the gentle shores of the Pacific Ocean and the rugged Coastal Mountains, our campus is ideally situated to enhance your recovery experience from drugs, alcohol, or other substances.

The whole meaning and purpose approach really clicked with me and I could really identify with something missing in my life, so I felt, even before I got here, that it was a program that would definitely have something to offer and help me with the things I was dealing with.
