In partnership with Paradise Valley Wellness Centre, the Chopra Center is opening a new addiction treatment center in Squamish, British Columbia. The residential center is the first of its kind, offering a unique healing approach that combines timeless Eastern healing traditions with the most recent breakthroughs in Western medical science. The treatment program is based on the core principles developed by the Chopra Center’s co-founders David Simon, M.D. and Deepak Chopra, M.D. and described in their popular book Freedom from Addiction.
Nestled on 10 peaceful acres in the beautiful Squamish Valley (between Whistler and Vancouver), the addiction recovery program at the Paradise Valley Wellness Centre will be led by a team of health care professionals that include a psychiatrist, a physician, therapists, yoga and meditation instructors, a nutritionist, an acupuncturist, massage therapists, and residential care givers.
“Our experience at the Chopra Center is that when people are able to identify and release stored emotional pain – and replace addictive behaviors with choices that nourish their mind, body, and spirit – healing and transformation can occur,” said Chopra Center medical director, David Simon.
