Service Access

Healthcare providers should consult the Alberta Referral Directory for service referral information.

Referral is by a court order for pre-trial and pre-sentence assessments.

Treatment referrals are for mandated indivuals and are accepted from community corrections (Probation)

Please make the reason for referral clear and, where available, include all background information (e.g., details of the offence, police reports, court transcripts, and criminal record of the accused).

When probation officers or other agencies are making a referral, where possible, the standard FAOS referral form should be used. Again, please send background information (e.g., PSR, PDR, PIS, PO) and make the reason for the referral clear.
