Sunshine Coast Health Centre (SCHC), considered one of the best non 12 step drug rehab and alcohol treatment programs in British Columbia, Canada, is excited to announce a new article by Daniel Jordan and Jude Walker published in the Vancouver Sun on July 3, 2020. Daniel Jordan is director of strategic development for Sunshine Coast Health Centre; Jude Walker is an assistant professor of educational studies at the University of B.C. The article advocates increased attention to ‘treatment’ as one of the ‘four pillars’ of drug policy in British Columbia, Canada.

“Treatment for drug addiction and alcoholism remains chronically underfunded in Vancouver and throughout British Columbia,” explained Casey Jordan, Chief Marketing Officer. “This article by Dan Jordan and Jude Walker explains in detail the strengths and weaknesses of drug policy here in British Columbia with a focus on drug rehabilitation services.”
