Name[edit]

The facility is named for Sheldon Chumir, a long-time Liberal Party Member of the Legislative Assembly for Alberta who represented constituents in Calgary in the provincial government.

Services[edit]

The Sheldon M. Chumir Health Centre has opened Alberta's first Safe Consumption Site on November 6, 2017. The Canadian federal government has dedicated 2.2 million dollars towards creating similar sites across Canada. The Sheldon M. Chumir Health Centre also hosts a variety of 12 step meetings including, Narcotics Anonymous (NA) and Crystal Meth Anonymous (CMA). These CMA meetings are held Tuesdays and Friday 8:00pm in room # 3003 on the third floor.

Participants in local groups meet in order to help others recover from methamphetamine addiction although the meetings are open to anyone with any addiction including Fentanyl. CMA advocates complete abstinence from methamphetamine, alcohol, inhalants, and all other psychoactive drugs not taken as prescribed.
