Rimrock Philosophy

Rimrock Foundation is the largest treatment center in the Yellowstone Valley region, offering comprehensive care for substance abuse and dual diagnosis, as well as sex addiction, eating disorders and codependency. The facility offers detox, residential, day treatment and outpatient services, all of which are designed to address each client’s emotional, physical, spiritual and social well-being. Evidence-based treatments are combined with 12-Step methodology to provide clients with a well-rounded recovery experience and the opportunity to achieve balance in their lives.

Areas of Specialization

  • Intensive Outpatient (IOP)
    Patients who undergo intensive outpatient treatment continue to live at home and sometimes go to school or work while participating in a highly structured treatment protocol that is focused on ending substance abuse. Programs vary in terms of how much treatment patients receive, how often and for how long. Some facilities design individualized intensive outpatient treatment programs.

  • Medical Detoxification
    Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.

ABOUT RIMROCK

Located in downtown Billings, Mont., in the Yellowstone Valley, Rimrock offers residential and outpatient care for adults and adolescents struggling with addiction and co-occurring disorders. The facility treats a wide range of addictions, including substance abuse, sex addiction, gambling, and eating disorders. Medical detox is available on-site.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Rimrock aims to address emotional, physical, spiritual, and social health. The center defines addictions as “sick-love relationships,” whose treatment requires active participation from the client. Treatment uses the 12-Steps.

For adults, treatment begins with an in-depth interview and psychological evaluation. The residential program includes psychiatric services, individual and group counseling, family therapy (including a family week program), education, a recreation program, spirituality sessions, and art therapy.

A partial hospitalization program (PHP) is similar to the residential program and offers up to 12 hours of treatment a day. There’s also an intensive outpatient program (IOP) and general outpatient care, which includes Seeking Safety meetings, a family violence program, and motivational enhancement therapy (MET). All clients are invited to attend weekly aftercare meetings for 12 weeks after completing treatment.

A gender-separate adolescent residential program lasts a minimum of 35 days and includes many of the same treatment modalities as adult inpatient care, plus canine therapy at a local animal shelter. A state-certified teacher provides tutoring and group learning. There’s also an adolescent IOP.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

The treatment team includes a psychiatrist, a physician, physician assistants, nurses, social workers, and master’s level counselors. The 12 individuals polled on the staff’s level of training and experience at the time of this writing gave it an above-average rating of four out of five stars.

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

There is currently no information provided by the facility regarding its living arrangements and related offerings, however, the 12 surveyed individuals gave the facility’s cleanliness an average rating of 3.83 stars.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

At the time of this writing alumni reviews were about evenly split been positive and more ambivalent or neutral reports. Individuals tended to give the facility ratings of around three stars for its family program and its exercise and leisure provisions, but lower ratings for its holistic offerings.

Recurring praise was awarded to the staff. “Well staffed, staff listens and counselors are available,” K.M. wrote in a representative review. However, more than one alum criticized the food, and two wrote that they felt the program was too short. Alum Elizabeth also felt mental health care was lacking.

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

Of the 11 reviews submitted to Rehabs.com at the time of this writing, six were positive, three were neutral or ambivalent, and two were negative. The loved ones polled at the time of this writing gave the facility an average rating of 3.8 stars for its family program (based on 10 survey responses), 3.86 stars for its exercise and leisure options (based on seven survey responses), and three stars for its holistic options (based on six survey responses).

Several reviewers praised the family program. “As a family member, I can honestly say that I, too, am a better person as I was faced with really searching my own behaviors and how they affected the family dynamics,” one anonymous reviewer wrote. Numerous reviewers also praised the “professional” and “caring” staff.

Yet some reviewers questioned the long-term effectiveness of treatment, and L.L.C. complained of excessive focus on the 12-Steps, long waits for beds, and difficulty in accessing treatment financially. “I have heard that they do not have a good handle on their staff and patients,” L.L.C added.

FINANCING

The facility’s website indicates that insurance and private pay are accepted, and there is a relationship with healthcare loans company American Healthcare Lending. The nine reviewers polled on the facility’s affordability at the time of this writing gave it a rating of 3.56 out of five stars.

Located where my brother lived. Maybe not as well staffed or has as many fringe type benefits as a bigger treatment facility It works for what we needed it for

Community outreach and education. Caring staff that are committed to helping. Most have experienced addiction issues themselves and can relate. I saw weakness in the outpatient program. My family member had gone to other treatment facilities in larger cities. This one by far was the best for long term help and the staff is top notch.

A caring, dedicated and qualified staff. 28 day treatment program may not be long enough for some people. As a family member, I can attest to the strength and effectiveness of family week, not only for my brother, but for me and my mom and dad as well.

Well staffed, staff listens and counselors are available. Food was bad. I'm still sober. 6 years Jan 16

Staff was good and kind, but the program itself is not long enough to be able to learn skills and maintain sobriety. Classes and groups are well put together and the family week there is one of the best I've experienced. With that being said though, mental health issues need to be addressed more and I believe there should be classes for this as well as drug/alcohol classes and groups. But 28 days is definitely not enough time for inpatient treatment. 60-90 days is more effective in staying sober. Overall I'd give Rimrock a 4.

The detox was an excellent aspects of the facility. However, the weaknesses of the facility included: 12 Step Model, private money makes it impossible to afford, Medicaid clients wait for state bed and it takes 4 to 6 months. I have heard that they do not have a good handle on their staff and patients. They are not culturally orientated, and very 12 step with AA and NA being a major construct of treatment philosophy. Choose not to treat tobacco as clients can smoke, very hypocritical..

They have a genuine concern for people they treat. I have known a few people who have been to Rimrock, and were all successful with the program. One of them was recently hired as a counselor to share his story and help others in their recovery.

I believe that having the right counselor who will challenge you and help you dig deep and be honest, honest, honest with yourself and fellow patients and family, was a great help. I've had family members in other facilities which did not demand honesty and self-honesty to dig into the real causes of self-medication with alcohol and how to find other ways to deal with the causes and the scars from it.

29 days is not long enough. Too expensive and not worth the money. I'm not addicted to prescription medication anymore. I lost a lot of things and realized I needed to quit and did.
