Frequently Asked Questions

What is unique about HUM?

At HUM, we have the ability to draw on individual and collaborative expertise to provide tailored, individual care. Our team includes a variety of healthcare professionals, including nurses, physicians, and psychologists who work from one chart and communicate regularly, which means that you do not have to keep sharing the same story over and over again.

Our approach to Addiction is also unique as we focus on it as a primary, chronic brain disease that impacts all levels of being and behaviour, rather than focusing on specific behaviours or substances in isolation.
