Our History

The Business & Industry Clinic was born under the Alberta Alcohol and Drug Abuse Commission (AADAC), and is located in the Northern Addictions Centre in Grande Prairie, Alberta. It is the only program of its kind in the province; offering addictions treatment to professionals and offering services into recovery.

Alberta Health Services (AHS) is tasked with co-ordinating the delivery of health supports and services across the province.

This organization brings together 12 formerly separate health entities in the province: nine geographically based health authorities (Chinook Health, Palliser Health Region, Calgary Health Region, David Thompson Health Region, East Central Health, Capital Health, Aspen Regional Health, Peace Country Health and Northern Lights Health Region) and three provincial entities working specifically in the areas of mental health (Alberta Mental Health Board), addictions (Alberta Alcohol and Drug Abuse Commission) and cancer (Alberta Cancer Board).

The creation of AHS was announced on May 15, 2008, by Ron Liepert, Minister of Health and Wellness.
