Addiction and Mental Health - Adult and Youth Intake

Community Addiction and Mental Health services are available to individuals across their lifespan dealing with symptoms of mental illness and / or having issues with substance use.

The focus of intervention is short term recovery. Clinicians help clients generate achievable goals for stabilization and change. Parental involvement is expected for children / youth unless a client is assessed as a mature minor.

Services are available for children, youth, adults and older adults with addiction and / or mental health concerns. Clinicians work with individuals and families to identify goals of treatment as they relate to their moderate to severe addiction and / or mental health concerns.

Addiction Services (clients with alcohol, tobacco, gambling, and / or other drug concerns) may include:

  • assessment
  • treatment
  • referrals to treatment centres
  • short-term outpatient treatment services (includes individual, family and / or group counselling)

Mental Health Services may include:

  • assessment
  • treatment / outpatient services (includes individual, family and / or group counselling)

Services may vary by location. Please call for more information or refer to the Routine Referral Process and Additional Service Details sections on the site specific page on the Alberta Referral Directory.
