The strategy detailed in this report is to transform the addiction and mental health system in Alberta. The ultimate goal is to reduce the prevalence of addiction, mental health problems, and mental illness in Alberta through health promotion and prevention activities and to provide quality assessment, treatment and support services to Albertans when they need them. The strategy is based on current scientific consensus that addiction, mental health problems, and mental illness are caused by a complex interplay of genetic, biological, personality and environmental factors.
