Sunshine Coast Health Centre, a Leading Inpatient Trauma Treatment Program in British Columbia, Canada, Announces New Counselors

Sunshine Coast Health Centre, one of the top programs in British Columbia, Canada, for inpatient trauma therapy, is proud to announce two new counselors as part of its ongoing expansion. The Centre is announcing that Elizabeth Sierra and Heather Gaskill have joined the Sunshine Coast team as part of building the clinical staff to become more specialized in mental health and trauma for first responders and similar occupations.

“As we've expanded our mission to deal with trauma and PTSD therapy and treatment, we've expanded our staff,” explained Casey Jordan, Chief Marketing Officer. “We're excited to have Elizabeth and Heather on-board to improve our services for Canada's first responders and others in similar occupations who may suffer from trauma and/or PTSD.”

Here is background on this release. While most people are familiar with the twelve steps popularized by Alcoholics Anonymous, fewer are aware of so-called "non twelve step" alternatives in Canada, and fewer still of non 12 step programs focused on treating trauma and PTSD. Yet many people who suffer from trauma and/or PTSD are not interested in a religiously based program such as the 12 Steps and may feel out of place in programs that have historically been situated in the drug rehabilitation and alcohol treatment area. For this reason, as well as a growing awareness that trauma and PTSD may often be the "root causes" of other emotional issues, Sunshine Coast Health Centre has expanded its offerings to include trauma and PSTD therapy treatment options. Many of the clients come from first responder occupations such as police or fire, but regardless may find that a non-12 step methodology based on Viktor Frankl's "logos" or "meaning" therapy may work better for them.

The expansion of the Centre's staff with these two new hires is yet another step towards maintaining the Centre's reputation as one of the best, if not the best, inpatient trauma and PTSD treatment programs in Canada. Persons who may be interested in exploring program options are urged to reach out to the Centre for a confidential consultation. Journalists and bloggers interested in new treatment methodologies for PTSD and trauma are urged to reach out for interview opportunities.


Sunshine Coast Health Centre is a 42-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'.
