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

  • 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.

  • HUM is an excellent organization. Their staff are thoughtful, well informed and welcoming. My team provides Art Therapy sessions as part of the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). Art provides participants a method of expression that goes beyond the limits of words. It allows participants to tap into their creativity and connect with each other in a different way. It is a pleasure working with HUM and being part of their community.

  • I began my journey of recovery at HUM having enrolled in their intensive outpatient program. It has been a truly life changing experience. I have struggled with addiction for many years. For the first time in my life I learned what I had. Through therapy I was able (and I continue) to understand and deal with my past. I have found hope again. I am learning about who I truly am as a person and I am growing. Finding HUM was not only life changing but it saved my life. I am eternally grateful to the entire HUM team and its patients for the experience and the continued support and guidance.Thank you

  • I had the fortunate opportunity to spend 2 weeks observing HUM’s Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) as a student to better my understanding of Addiction and had a life changing experience! Dr. Hajela, Sue, Paige, Kaylie, Dr. Hurley, Troy and Mike were all very knowledgeable, passionate and nonjudgmental in their approach to treating Addiction.HUM uses a holistic approach when identifying, assessing and treating Addiction. Their focus is on long term recovery versus providing “band aide” fixes as other treatment centers might provide. They deeply understand that “Addiction is Addiction” and that no matter which substance or behavior you might struggle with, the fundamental issues stem from dysfunction/disconnect in biological, psychological, social and spiritual domains.I would recommend HUM to all individuals seeking to better their lives and not just those afflicted with Addiction. 🙂
