Who We Are

Health Upwardly Mobile Inc., (HUM) is an Integrated Health and Wellness company based in Calgary, Alberta. Our team includes a variety of healthcare providers including nurses, physicians, psychologists and social workers. HUM offers personal and corporate services, as well as training and workshops on topics related to Addiction, Mental Health, and Chronic Pain. 

HUM’s unique strength is our ability to draw on individual and collaborative expertise to provide tailored individual care within an Integrated Continuing Care Framework. For all new referrals, this involves a comprehensive assessment to identify the individual’s physical and/or mental health issues. We also recognize the importance of the bio-psycho-social-spiritual dimensions for individuals and their families. Our work reflects collaborative strategies, preventive resources and leading edge research in the areas of Addiction, Mental Health and Chronic Pain.

Treatment, recovery and rehabilitation recommendations will focus on returning the individual to a state of “wellness” as soon as possible. Recommendations will be designed to ensure the earliest return to work and/or healthy living within the capabilities of each individual. 

HUM means ‘we’ or ‘us’ in Hindi.  We have chosen this acronym to also convey the meaning that we are stronger and more effective together… “Together we can”!

What People Are Saying

  • I was a patient of Dr. Hajela’s 2 years before HUM was created. I was under his, and his teams care from HUM’s inception in 2009 until 2014 (7 years). I attended 2 other treatment programs in BC and Calgary, as well as regular 12 step meetings. The quality of the group and individual therapy I received at HUM was by far the most professional I’ve experienced in my journey. My time at HUM had the most profound impact on my recovery and still does to this day. I’m beyond grateful to be part of this amazing team as a counsellor now, and to be able to have an impact on and witness the journeys of my fellow addicts.

  • I spent approximately 1.5 years visiting Paige and Dr. Hajela at HUM and each visit was a great experience and really helped me learn more about myself. The office is very welcoming and peaceful and you are treated very well there. I always felt I could speak freely and say discuss items I may not with friends family or other. I would recommend this office to anyone going through any issue of addiction or other, I am grateful for my time there and what I learned. I truly appreciated their services and their respect for their clients. Thank you very much Paige.

  • My first experience with HUM was through the Intensive Outpatient Program they offer. This treatment program was miles ahead of any other treatment I had received or experienced up to that point. I learned more about my addiction than I could have ever imagined. It had such a profound effect on not only my life but my family/friends lives as well. I have come so far since attending IOP it is almost hard to believe. The staff is extremely helpful and supportive. I now attend weekly group therapy at HUM, and weekly one on one meetings with counsellors there. I have nothing but good things to say about this facility and each and every staff member I have met along the way. It has changed my life for the better and I am eternally grateful for this amazing resource. Each counsellor has been extremely helpful in many ways and their programs offer unique and beneficial approaches to recovery. I would strongly recommend HUM to anyone thinking about beginning or furthering their Recovery. They helped me to feel safe and supported throughout my journey, and I do not think I would be where I am today without the help of HUM and all of their staff.

  • As a professional providing services at HUM, I can wholeheartedly say that the HUM team has been extremely supportive of the Art Therapy program my colleagues and I have implemented for over a year now. I admire HUM’s holistic approach to treatment, taking accounts all aspects of the individual’s body and mind, creating a truly collaborative and integrative approach. Being able to provide Art Therapy to the HUM clientele has been truly rewarding and I look forward to continue working on this amazing team.

  • As many of us know, our public health care system, although superior to many countries, is overloaded & often makes getting the critical help needed, a very slow, difficult process. After countless dead ends, I decided to take my health into my own hands & discovered Healthy Upwardly Mobile (HUM).THEY ARE A TEAM UNLIKE ANY I’VE EVER MET.I was at my most vulnerable when I walked through their doors. From then till now, I am surrounded by supportive, educated professionals who have always had nothing but my best interest at heart & who continue to give me hope.My journey is far from over but my life has been forever changed because I made that one phone call & for that I will ALWAYS be grateful.
