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 had the very good fortune of being introduced to H.U.M. 4 years ago and that was a turning point in my life. The holistic approach to recovery at H.U.M (bio, psycho, social, spiritual) has been instrumental for me. I feel like I am more than just a patient at H.U.M., I am part of a supportive community. I attend group meetings at H.U.M. weekly as an ongoing part of my program. The physicians and staff are highly knowledgeable and caring. I highly recommend H.U.M.!

  • I first reached out to HUM in a desperate attempt to get help for my adult daughter who suffers from addiction. Little did I know that I would be the one to discover my own addictive problems and finally get much needed support and understanding from the HUM team. There are very few professionals in Calgary that can deal with addiction like Doctor Hajela and Paige Abbott as they are experts in the complicated world of addiction.I owe them my gratitude and highly recommend anyone suffering with family addiction to reach out for their knowledge and professional expertise. It has been a saving grace for me!

  • 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 !!!!!

  • What brought me to HUM 2+ years ago was an underlying unhappiness, or lack of zest for life/depression. My experience through the assessment appointments was an interesting one, and resonated truth with me. HUM’s compassionate, and empathetic approach towards therapy gave me the safety I needed for personal growth. HUM provided the support, programs, and encouragement to help me push through my cognitive barriers. I completed the Intensive Out Patient program which gifted me a deeper foundation of understanding, practice/tools, friendships, and connection that has changed my life. The HUM professionals, community, and staff are full of beautiful, caring Human Beings. I am forever grateful to HUM for the gifts of recovery they helped me find, and the courage I had to walk through their doors. Thank you HUM. Stay Curious…
