Health Canada has approved AHS’ application to offer supervised consumption services at the Sheldon M. Chumir Health Centre. The site opened to clients on January 15, 2018.
Thank you to everyone who participated and provided feedback into our planning for supervised consumption services at Sheldon M. Chumir Health Centre.
AHS will continue to work with the City of Calgary, Calgary Police Service, the Calgary Coalition on Supervised Consumption to monitor and review these services and AHS will continue to provide updates to the community.
If you have any questions, concerns or feedback we want to hear from you. Please contact SCS.Calgary@ahs.ca or call 1-877-275-8830.
Health Canada approved applications by the Edmonton-based community coalition AMSISE (Access to Medically Supervised Injection Services Edmonton) to offer supervised consumption services at three community facilities. In addition, Alberta Health Services has received approval to offer supervised consumption services to in-patients at the Royal Alexandra Hospital, making it the first acute care hospital in North America to provide these services.
The Lethbridge-based community organization ARCHES has also been granted approval to provide supervised consumption services at a location in the city’s downtown.
