Virtual care refers to services that use technology such as video, telephone and messaging to provide health care.
Virtual addiction and mental health supports are available to help Albertans get the care they need, when they need it, no matter where they live. While in-person care is available when required, many times supports can also be provided virtually, decreasing travel time, time away from home and even decreased in wait time for service.
