Get off drugs &

Helping Albertans with their addictions

Our Approach

At ACT Medical Centres, we use evidence-based medications: methadone and suboxone to treat our patients and assist them on their road to recovery. These synthetic opioids are used as a method of treatment for addictions to a variety of drugs such as: fentanyl, heroin, oxycodone, morphine, and all opiate derivatives.
The use of methadone and suboxone allow our team to treat your underlying issues while the medications stabilize your symptoms by blocking the neurological effects of the drugs, alleviating physical pain and decreasing cravings normally felt during withdrawal. For more information on these medications and precautions come and visit one of our clinics, our team is here to aid you in your recovery helping you get the support, respect, dignity and compassion you need in a consistent non-judgemental atmosphere.

One of the most important choices you are going to make is if you are ready to enter into the program. This is not an easy choice when you take that first step, our team of Clinicians are ready to support your journey to a healthier life.

First Step

Initial Consultation
& Begin Therapy

The first steps to your recovery is an initial consultation. In our initial consultation, we assess and review if you have already been in a program, why you are seeking help and what if any treatments you have undergone in the past. Bring your health card, identification and contact information. When you arrive tell a clinician that you would like to start treatment and we require that you fill out the appropriate paperwork.

Second Step

Opioid Substitution
Therapy

Often the second step in your road to recovery at ACT Medical is Opioid Substitution Therapy. Opioid Substitution Therapy is a procedure in which a qualified physician prescribes an opioid medication that helps ease the withdrawal symptoms associated with the addiction. These prescriptions act as a substitute for the opioids you were taking before. Common Opioid substitutes are Methadone & Suboxone.

Third Step

Getting Your
Prescriptions Right

There are a number of medications and prescriptions that can be used for Opioid Substitution Therapy. Our clinicians ensure that our patients get the medication that is right for them while regulating the amount. We help our patients reduce their dose and lower the amount of medication they are taking, helping them get closer to sobriety and staying off the drugs.

Fourth Step

Family Support
& Involvement

Family involvement and support are imperative in assisting clients with reaching their goals. With that being said, we do not expect families to condone any sort of abusive behavior, we only ask they support the decision the client has made to choose a life without drugs.

The Next Step

Staying Off The Drugs
Behavioural Therapy

Once we have regulated and reduced the dosage of opioid subsitutes we provide ongoing counselling and support to maintain sobriety. Many people have gotten off opioid and other drugs before but can’t seem to stay off drugs permanently. We offer support and programs that increase the chances of getting off drugs and staying off them.
