Located in a restored and historic residence in Great Falls, Montana, Rocky Mountain Treatment Center provides residential treatment for adults as well as a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). With beautiful mountain views, the RMTC is a fully accredited and full-service facility for substance abuse and addiction.
Accommodations and Staff
The facility is a restored convent that provides a peaceful and picturesque environment for recovery. The three-story residence houses up to 26 at a time, with each floor divided by gender. Rooms are shared between two to three residents, with bedding, closets and nightstands provided. The second floor includes meeting rooms, a serenity room and chapel, all of which are furnished with comfortable tables and chairs. The bottom floor houses the administrative offices, kitchen and dining room. All meals are prepared by on-site kitchen staff and all food is prepared home-style with a focus on health and nutrition.
Treatment and Staff
Clients are assessed during an initial intake, after which individualized treatment plans are devised. When necessary, clients are given medically-monitored detox on-site, a phase which usually lasts five- to seven-days. Residents begin to participate in therapy during detox as soon as they are physically able. Registered nurses provide 24/7 care and medication management as needed. A team of doctors and psychiatrists assist clients with co-occurring disorders as well.
Inpatient programs are offered in 30, 60 and 90 day tracks, with 30 days the minimum length of stay. Treatment includes group therapy, which occurs twice daily. Small groups meet to discuss substance abuse-related issues and to offer solutions for dysfunctional behaviors. Clients are also taught life-skills as well as techniques for effective communication and healthy relationships. Licensed counselors facilitate all the groups. Weekly individual therapy occurs with each resident’s primary counselor, where individual needs and concerns are discussed in a more intimate setting.
As a holistic program, spirituality is of great importance at RMTC. Programs include lectures and educational sessions based on spiritual practices. Both clients and families are encouraged to attend. In-house 12-step meetings are also available, as are targeted 12-step literature study meetings which are required, as is working the steps with a sponsor.
The facility’s PHP is for those who need intensive treatment but with less commitment than the inpatient. Clients graduating from the residential program often step down to the PHP before transitioning to independent living. The program runs for six hours a day, Monday through Saturday. Clients receive all the benefits of the aforementioned modalities while going home at the end of the day.
IOP is the third level of treatment and also consists of weekly group and individual therapy. Clients can move into this program after completing PHP, or can start here if only needing low-level support.
Physical exercise via recreation therapy is part of treatment as well and daily outings are scheduled whenever possible. Residents play volleyball at an indoor gymnasium and attend equine therapy for a full day each week. The stables are indoors so that inclement weather does not interfere. Meditation and relaxation techniques are taught to help clients relieve stress in healthy ways.
RMTC provides a continuum of high-level, personalized in- and outpatient care for those at all levels of substance abuse and addiction. Clients benefit from medical staff supervision as well as a range of treatment options from traditional therapy to alternative and holistic methods like meditation and and working with horses. While structured family programs are not available, family participation is encouraged and visitation is allowed on Sundays. In all, Rocky Mountain Treatment Center is a well-rounded program ideal for individuals open to trying outside-the-box recovery methods.
