Alberta Primary Care Mental Health & Addiction Services

Primary Care is defined as the first care a patient receives. It is often a family physician, although patients may also receive primary care from a nurse, a paramedic, midwife, or other types of health care providers.

Specialized primary care clinics for individuals with mental health and/or addiction issues are an important service for the many individuals that do not have a family physician and often find themselves relying on walk-in clinics. Specialized primary care clinics provide longer sessions and the opportunity for patients to get the personalized service typically limited to those with a family physician.

Please note that primary care mental health and addiction services are not always walk-in clinics. Individuals requiring primary care services should call ahead as many clinics often require an appointment or a referral from an approved health professional.
