Ask a Professional

  • Are all the drug rehab programs in Alberta located in Calgary and Edmonton?

    No, Alberta Health Services operates detox centers, outpatient facilities, and residential drug rehab programs throughout the province. In addition, there are private drug rehab centers across the province in smaller communities. Families and individuals can also find counseling and 12-step meetings in most communities across the province.

  • What does drug rehab cost in Alberta?

    The cost varies depending on whether the program is outpatient or residential and how long rehabilitation lasts. Initially, province health care pays for substance use treatment, and these are programs operated through Alberta Health Services. Private drug rehab costs vary; for example, a long-term private program can cost $20,000 to $30,000. Private detox and outpatient drug rehab remain the most affordable option.

  • What opioid addiction rehabilitation options are available in Alberta?

    Opioid treatment options in Alberta include recovery housing, intensive residential treatment, opioid agonist therapy, and support for families. Alberta also utilizes overdose prevention. Treating opioid addiction requires medical detox, residential treatment, and adequate aftercare support.

  • How do I pay for drug rehab in Alberta?

    If the drug rehab program is operated by Alberta Health Services, provincial health care covers the cost. Yet, there could be some out-of-pocket costs such as room and board if it is a residential facility. When paying for private drug rehab in the province, you may want to consider medical financing, payment plans, if the program offers it, pooling resources, or extending a line of credit.

  • Are there treatment services for youth in Alberta?

    Yes, through Alberta Health Services, parents will find outpatient services, mobile services, intensive day treatment programs, residential detoxification, and residential treatment programs. In addition, there is the Protection of Children Abusing Drugs Program, which allows parents to apply for a protection order if their child’s use of alcohol or drugs is likely to cause psychological or physical harm to themselves or others.
