At HUM, we are an integrated health care team so you will receive health care services from a number of different health care providers, such as nurses, physicians, and psychologists, based on your needs. We take a holistic approach to health; therefore we will be exploring biological, psychological, social, and spiritual dimensions, rather than looking at health issues or diagnoses in isolation.
Family -Youth and Family Addiction Services
HUM provides a comprehensive assessment and outpatient addiction treatment for youth and family members in Calgary and surrounding areas. Assessment means we spend time getting to know you, try to find out what is going on and the acuity of the issues. Treatment means the things we do to help you and your child which may include individual, family and group therapy and other services.
HUM’s focus with youth and families is early intervention. Early intervention refers to getting help early for people showing initial signs and symptoms of a mental health problem. Recent research indicates that early intervention and treatment dramatically impact the course of mental health and that many people can go on to live happy and productive lives with appropriate treatment.
Marriage counselling, also called couples counselling/therapy helps couples (married or not) to understand and resolve conflicts and improve their relationship. Couples counselling gives couples the tools to communicate better, negotiate differences, problem solve and even argue in a healthier way.
