Alberta Health Services offers a wide range of treatment options for Alberta youth. Outpatient counselling is available at offices throughout the province. We also have three youth treatment centres in Alberta: in Edmonton, Calgary and Lethbridge. All three youth treatment centres offer detox and residential treatment programs. The Edmonton and Calgary centres also offer intensive day treatment programs with residential support if necessary in Calgary. The Protection of Children Abusing Drugs (PChAD) program provides detoxification, assessment and treatment recommendations within a protective safe house.
Before a treatment plan is determined, an assessment is completed to determine the best course of action. For more information and to find an addiction services office near you, call the 24–hour Helpline at 1-866-332-2322 (Alberta only).
