Welcome to Opioid Addiction Resources Alberta

Treatment anywhere in alberta

Opioid Replacement Services Virtually Anywhere In Alberta

Larger Centers like Calgary and Edmonton have stand alone opioid dependency programs.  All other communities in Alberta can access the Rural Opioid Dependency Program from Alberta Health Services.  

Communities Without Opioid Dependency Programs

Because most communities don't have an opioid addiction clinic, you can get treatment by telehealth (video conferencing) through the Rural Opioid Dependency Program, an Alberta Health Services Initiative.  Appointments are covered by Alberta healthcare.  Call 1-844-383-7688 or click the link for more information.
