Calgary Alpha House Society is a non-profit, charitable agency that provides safe and caring environments for individuals whose lives are affected by alcohol and other drug dependencies
What We Do
Alpha House was established in 1981 as a place of safety for men and women struggling with addictions, as well as mental and physical health issues. We operate a Shelter and Detox/Transitional facility, Outreach Programs, including the DOAP Team, Encampment Team, Connect2Care, and the Needle Response Team, and Housing Programs with intensive case management support.
Who We Help
