Who We Are

About Foothills Centre

Foothills Centre is a medically supported, adult Detox Program located in southern Alberta. We are dedicated to providing an environment in which clients can safely withdraw from substance abuse.

What We Do

Our Program

The Detox Program consists of introducing information on substance abuse in a group setting on a daily basis. Factual information is presented through videos and group lectures. Group lectures are designed to assist the client to understand the process of addictions, first steps into recovery and preparation for treatment.
