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 am a patient at HUM and have been for several years (6+/-). I would not hesitate to recommend them and share my experience with others.They are professional, experienced, educated and caring individuals who work together to provide me with consistent care. I’ve grown substantially since going through their assessment and continue to grow by attending facilitated group sessions as well as individual appointments with a Psychologist, Paige, and an Addictions Physician, Dr Hajala.I have read their book a few times and recently purchased the workbook which has already given me a few ah ha moments. On Sundays I spend a few minutes watching Paige’s recovery message video.HUM has become a second home for me and I feel privileged that they set up an office where I live.

  • 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.

  • When you are in trouble, you seem to do what ever you have been told to do, in order to please the people that punished you for breaking the law. At HUM, I woke up and realized, that there is way more behind all this, I learned to see where it all came from, and how to avoid many occasions that would trigger the situation. HUM is way more professional then any Rehab Centers I know off, they are straight with you, very knowledgeable in any aspect, and focus on YOU only, and no one else, they really woke me up and made my life better than ever. I focus on myself and my family only, everything else is relevant. It is worth it to communicate with HUM, they really know how to help !!!!!
