The George Spady Society’s Medical Detox is a 31-bed unit located at the George Spady Centre in Edmonton’s downtown core. The Medical Detox provides individuals with a safe, fully medically supported space to withdraw from substances, stabilize their health and receive referrals to treatment facilities, mental health supports, and housing. Clients receive self-directed individualized care with the support of the Detox team which includes Nurse Practitioners, nursing staff, addiction counsellors, social workers, and support staff.
The Medical Detox offers 10 residential recovery beds for individuals who have completed the Detox program and need additional non-clinical supports and safety transfer to the new care provider. Priority will be given to individuals who are awaiting housing and treatment for a substantial mental health or substance use disorder.
