Finding The Best Drug Rehab Centers In Alberta

There are numerous drug rehab centers in Alberta, Canada. Through the Alberta Alcohol and Drug Abuse Commission, the principal agency for the treatment of drug abuse and alcohol addiction in Alberta, you can locate several government-funded treatment programs. Drug rehabilitation centers that are funded by the government can have long waiting lists and it might take quite a while before a patient gets admitted. Fortunately, there are private drug rehabilitation centers found in Alberta in which patients can be readily admitted and receive the appropriate treatment to put an end to their addiction. Alberta's private drug rehabilitation centers are also a better option if you're dealing with tougher cases of drug and alcohol addiction and for patients who experience relapse.

In funded drug rehabs, they usually call the family of the patient, ensure that the individual suffering from addiction is willing to undergo rehabilitation, and that he or she is sober for at least a week. This presents a huge problem to families that have a member who refuses to go to drug rehab. Private drug rehab institutions can deal with such cases, thanks to their highly qualified team of drug rehab experts who fully understand the thought processes of patients. The following is a list of drug rehab centers in Alberta and the different services they offer.

Common Drugs Used In Alberta

Because of the rise of Alberta's prolific industries, Edmonton and Calgary also experienced an economic resurgence. This economic growth, however, paved the way for different social issues. If you look at recent studies, you would notice that drug addiction exists in huge proportions and that drug rehab centers have seen an increase in demand for their drug treatment services compared to previous years. An increasing number of new drugs are being introduced to different communities in Alberta including methamphetamine and crystal meth. The latter is particularly common in drug rehab centers, an extremely addictive stimulate that alters the way the central nervous system works. The drug is known to come with numerous side effects including schizophrenia, permanent brain damage, paranoia, hallucinations and extreme episodes of violent acts. Drug treatment centers can help individuals who are addicted to the drug. You can find different types of drug rehab centers, and finding one that best suits the needs of the patient is key in ending their addiction.

The Increasing Drug Addiction Incidence in Alberta

In Alberta, there are two prevalent situations that have emerged regarding drug abuse. It can be observed that the south part of Alberta deals with different drug-related issues than the northern part of Alberta. Alcohol addiction, meanwhile, remains a huge problem in the entire province. The following information has been compiled based on a trend that emerged from out helpline. Marijuana, cocaine and crack cocaine are particularly common in the southern part of Alberta.

Over the last two years, there have been an increasing number of people who are abusing prescription medication in the whole province of Alberta. Different prescription medications such as Percocet, OxyContin and other kinds of painkillers are said to create a far more powerful dependency compared to street drugs. Detoxifying from these drugs is also more painful. Even though cocaine and crack can also be accessed in the norther part of Alberta, this area has different drug abuse cases. Edmonton and its suburbs continue to deal with a lot of residents who are addicted to methamphetamine.

The city of Fort McMurray, Alberta has an entirely unique drug situation of its own, and this stems from the fact that there's a great amount of out-of-the-province employees working in the oil business. But in all of Alberta, alcohol still reigns as the most abused drug. Fortunately, Alberta is home to several alcohol addiction treatment centers. For many years, the province of Alberta has been battling against different cases of drug addiction, which are primarily influenced by the abundance of gang problems present in the area. The Justice Minister of Alberta also said that all of the drugs used by addicts contribute to the never-ending gang problems, fueling a constant feud between gangs that often end up in violence. Alberta has taken several measures to enforce their drug laws. The province has also promised to research more about marijuana because many citizens say that it should be made legal. So far, however, Alberta hasn't released any official statement regarding the legalization of marijuana.

In the entire province of Alberta, over 50 different gangs operate and make money through the illegal trade of drugs, with cocaine being the most traded commodity. In Calgary alone, dozens of gang related crimes remain unsolved, with many more drive-by shootings plaguing the area. The authorities say that these are mostly drug related crimes that affect thousands of innocents. Instead of focusing on early intervention, Alberta allocates over 90% of its gang funding on policing. Drug rehab centers can play a huge role in decreasing these numbers and helping bring peace to all the residents of Alberta by freeing addicts from their drug issues and turning them into productive citizens. The drug problems in Alberta can be significantly reduced by sending people who have drug-related problems to the appropriate treatment center. If you're looking for a drug rehab center in Alberta for yourself, a friend or a family member, we can help you find the best one that suits your needs.

Drug and Alcohol Rehab Center in Alberta

Edmonton, Alberta


Cocaine Anonymous (CA) is a twelve-step program for people who seek recovery from drug addiction. CA is patterned very closely after Alcoholics Anonymous, although the two groups are unaffiliated. While many CA members have been addicted to cocaine, crack, speed or similar substances, identifying specifically as a cocaine addict is not required. Cocaine Anonymous stresses in several of its readings that CA's 12 Steps are not drug specific, and Cocaine Anonymous is not a drug specific fellowship, pointing out that some of their members 'never even tried coke'. As such, they welcome any addict, alcoholic, or otherwise problemed drug user into their fellowship. Narcotics Anonymous (NA) describes itself as a 'nonprofit fellowship or society of men and women for whom drugs had become a major problem'. Narcotics Anonymous uses a traditional 12-step model that has been expanded and developed for people with varied substance abuse issues and is the second-largest 12-step organization.


Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) is an international mutual aid fellowship founded in 1935 (two years after the end of prohibition in the United States in December 1933) by Bill Wilson and Dr. Bob Smith in Akron, Ohio. AA states that its primary purpose is to help alcoholics 'to stay sober and help other alcoholics achieve sobriety'. With other early members Bill Wilson and Bob Smith developed AA's Twelve Step program of spiritual and character development. AAs initial Twelve Traditions were introduced in 1946 to help the fellowship be stable and unified while disengaged from 'outside issues' and influences. Gamblers Anonymous (GA) is a twelve-step program for people who have a gambling problem. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop gambling. This is a compulsion or addiction which may be associated with financial insecurity, dysfunctional families, legal problems, employment difficulties, psychological distress and higher rates of suicide and attempted suicide.


Workaholics Anonymous (WA) is a twelve-step program for people identifying themselves as 'powerless over compulsive work, worry, or activity' including, but not limited to, workaholics–including overworkers and those who suffer from unmanageable procrastination or work aversion. Anybody with a desire to stop working compulsively is welcome at a WA meeting. Unmanageability can include compulsive work in housework, hobbies, fitness, or volunteering as well as in paid work. Anyone with a problematic relationship with work is welcomed. Workaholics Anonymous is considered an effective program for those who need its help. Crystal Meth Anonymous (CMA) is a 12–step–based fellowship whose members share their experiences with each other in order to recover from addiction to crystal meth and to help others do the same. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop using and membership is free–of–cost, supporting itself through voluntary member contributions. CMA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; it does not wish to engage in any controversy; and neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Its stated primary purpose 'is to help the addict lead a sober life and carry the message of recovery to other crystal meth addicts who still suffer'.


Al-Anon/Alateen, Al-Anon Family Groups and Al-Anon are different names for a worldwide fellowship that offers a program of recovery for the families and friends of alcoholics, whether or not the alcoholic recognizes the existence of a drinking problem or seeks help. 'Alateen' is part of the Al-Anon fellowship designed for the younger relatives and friends of alcoholics through the teen years. Nar-Anon is a twelve-step program for friends and family members of those who are affected by someone else's addiction. Nar-Anon is complementary to, but separate from, Narcotics Anonymous (NA), analogous to Al-Anon with respect to Alcoholics Anonymous; Nar-Anon's traditions state that it should 'always cooperate with Narcotics Anonymous.' Nar-Anon was originally founded by Alma B. in Studio City, California, but her initial attempt to launch the program failed. The organization was later revived in 1968 in the Palos Verdes Peninsula by Robert Stewart Goodrich. Nar-Anon filed Articles of Incorporation in 1971, and in 1986 established The Nar-Anon World Service Office (WSO) in Torrance, California. Narateens are members of the Nar-Anon fellowship and, as the name implies, is designed for members in their teens.


Co-Dependents Anonymous (CoDA) is a fellowship of men and women whose common purpose is to develop healthy relationships. CoDA is modeled on Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) using the same twelve steps as AA with the substitution on one word in the first step, 'We admitted we were powerless over others' (not alcohol) '-- that our lives had become unmanageable.' It was founded in 1986 by Ken and Mary, long term members of AA in Phoenix, Arizona, who felt a need for an AA-type fellowship to cope with their codependent behaviors.Women For Sobriety, Inc. (WFS), is a non-profit secular addiction recovery group for women with addiction problems. WFS was created by sociologist Jean Kirkpatrick in 1976 as an alternative to twelve-step addiction recovery groups like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). As of 1998 there were more than 200 WFS groups worldwide. Only women are allowed to attend the organization's meetings as the groups focus specifically on women's issues. WFS is not a radical feminist, anti-male, or anti-AA organization.


LifeRing Secular Recovery (LifeRing or LSR) is a secular, non-profit organization providing peer-run addiction recovery groups for anyone with a desire to recover from alcohol and drug addiction or who are in a relationship with an addict or alcoholic. LifeRing split from Secular Organizations for Sobriety in 1997, and incorporated officially in 1999. LifeRing has meetings in the United States, Canada and Europe.  Secular Organizations for Sobriety (SOS), also known as Save Our Selves, is a non-profit network of autonomous addiction recovery groups. The program stresses the need to place the highest priority on sobriety and uses mutual support to assist members in achieving this goal. The Suggested Guidelines for Sobriety emphasize rational decision-making and are not religious or spiritual in nature. SOS represents an alternative to the spiritually based addiction recovery programs such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). SOS members may also attend AA meetings, but SOS does not view spirituality or surrender to a Higher Power as being necessary to maintain abstinence.


SMART Recovery (Self Management and Recovery Training) is an international non-profit organization which provides assistance to individuals seeking abstinence from addictive behaviors. The approach used is secular and scientifically based using non-confrontational motivational, behavioral and cognitive methods. Meeting participants learn recovery methods derived from evidence-based addiction treatments.  About MyHealth.Alberta.ca is your resource for non–emergency health information.

Workaholics Anonymous (WA) is a twelve-step program for people identifying themselves as 'powerless over compulsive work, worry, or activity' including, but not limited to, workaholics–including overworkers and those who suffer from unmanageable procrastination or work aversion. Anybody with a desire to stop working compulsively is welcome at a WA meeting. Unmanageability can include compulsive work in housework, hobbies, fitness, or volunteering as well as in paid work. Anyone with a problematic relationship with work is welcomed. Workaholics Anonymous is considered an effective program for those who need its help. Crystal Meth Anonymous (CMA) is a 12–step–based fellowship whose members share their experiences with each other in order to recover from addiction to crystal meth and to help others do the same. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop using and membership is free–of–cost, supporting itself through voluntary member contributions. CMA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; it does not wish to engage in any controversy; and neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Its stated primary purpose 'is to help the addict lead a sober life and carry the message of recovery to other crystal meth addicts who still suffer'.


Al-Anon/Alateen, Al-Anon Family Groups and Al-Anon are different names for a worldwide fellowship that offers a program of recovery for the families and friends of alcoholics, whether or not the alcoholic recognizes the existence of a drinking problem or seeks help. 'Alateen' is part of the Al-Anon fellowship designed for the younger relatives and friends of alcoholics through the teen years. Nar-Anon is a twelve-step program for friends and family members of those who are affected by someone else's addiction. Nar-Anon is complementary to, but separate from, Narcotics Anonymous (NA), analogous to Al-Anon with respect to Alcoholics Anonymous; Nar-Anon's traditions state that it should 'always cooperate with Narcotics Anonymous.' Nar-Anon was originally founded by Alma B. in Studio City, California, but her initial attempt to launch the program failed. The organization was later revived in 1968 in the Palos Verdes Peninsula by Robert Stewart Goodrich. Nar-Anon filed Articles of Incorporation in 1971, and in 1986 established The Nar-Anon World Service Office (WSO) in Torrance, California. Narateens are members of the Nar-Anon fellowship and, as the name implies, is designed for members in their teens.


Women For Sobriety, Inc. (WFS), is a non-profit secular addiction recovery group for women with addiction problems. WFS was created by sociologist Jean Kirkpatrick in 1976 as an alternative to twelve-step addiction recovery groups like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). As of 1998 there were more than 200 WFS groups worldwide. Only women are allowed to attend the organization's meetings as the groups focus specifically on women's issues. WFS is not a radical feminist, anti-male, or anti-AA organization. Co-Dependents Anonymous (CoDA) is a fellowship of men and women whose common purpose is to develop healthy relationships. CoDA is modeled on Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) using the same twelve steps as AA with the substitution on one word in the first step, 'We admitted we were powerless over others' (not alcohol) '-- that our lives had become unmanageable.' It was founded in 1986 by Ken and Mary, long term members of AA in Phoenix, Arizona, who felt a need for an AA-type fellowship to cope with their codependent behaviors.


LifeRing Secular Recovery (LifeRing or LSR) is a secular, non-profit organization providing peer-run addiction recovery groups for anyone with a desire to recover from alcohol and drug addiction or who are in a relationship with an addict or alcoholic. LifeRing split from Secular Organizations for Sobriety in 1997, and incorporated officially in 1999. LifeRing has meetings in the United States, Canada and Europe.  Secular Organizations for Sobriety (SOS), also known as Save Our Selves, is a non-profit network of autonomous addiction recovery groups. The program stresses the need to place the highest priority on sobriety and uses mutual support to assist members in achieving this goal. The Suggested Guidelines for Sobriety emphasize rational decision-making and are not religious or spiritual in nature. SOS represents an alternative to the spiritually based addiction recovery programs such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). SOS members may also attend AA meetings, but SOS does not view spirituality or surrender to a Higher Power as being necessary to maintain abstinence.
