Specific Conditions & How We Can Help

Albertsons Companies Specialty Care provides specialty medication and care coordination for the following:

Cystic Fibrosis

Cystic fibrosis is a genetic condition where thick, sticky mucus builds up in organs. This leads to breathing problems and allows bacteria to grow inside the lungs. It also affects the pancreas, which makes it harder for the body to break down food and get important nutrients. New treatments help people with cystic fibrosis live longer, fuller lives.

Mental Health

Mental health conditions influence a person’s thoughts, mood and feelings. They also make it harder to keep good relationships and do well at work or school. Treatment depends on the person and getting better can be a slow process. Medicines and counseling can improve symptoms and help a person lead a better and fuller life. Some medicines can be injected into the body and last for weeks to months. For conditions like schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, these injectable medicines make it easier to stay committed to your therapy.

Our team will help you get your medicine when you need it. We will coordinate with your provider to make administration as convenient as possible whether in your provider’s office or at our pharmacy. Pharmacists are specially trained and, where permitted by law, may professionally administer injectable medicines. We offer flexible appointment times and may have a pharmacy right in your neighborhood. We respect your privacy and your good health is our top priority.

Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis (MS) affects the brain and spinal cord. Damage to a part of nerve cells called the myelin sheath makes it harder for the brain to send messages to the rest of the body. Symptoms include trouble with vision, tingling, numbness, and changes in coordination, memory and thinking. People with MS usually have times when symptoms are more active, and other time when they are less bothersome. Unfortunately, there is no cure for MS. Using medicines with physical and occupational therapy can help to control symptoms.
