Review by Rehabs.com Contributors


Nestled in the glacial lake district of northern Idaho, Kootenai Health is a community-owned hospital offering a range of medical and behavioral health services. Its chemical dependency program provides both inpatient and outpatient treatment for adults, along with medically monitored detox services.


Upon admission, all patients receive a psychiatric evaluation, nursing assessment, physical examination, and full psychosocial evaluation. An individualized treatment plan is then created that targets behaviors and symptoms requiring treatment.

Inpatient treatment for chemical dependency lasts 14 to 21 days and focuses on addiction recovery through education, relapse prevention, spirituality, and 12-Step work. Clients participate in individual, group, and family therapy, as well as educational sessions. There is also a family program for loved ones, which includes counseling and addiction education.

The intensive outpatient program (IOP) is structured around gender-specific and co-ed group meetings three nights per week. There is also a specialized outpatient program for pregnant and postpartum women.


The treatment team includes physicians, nurses, and chemical dependency counselors, as well as psychiatrists specializing in addiction medicine.


There is currently no information provided on the facility's website or otherwise regarding its living arrangements and related offerings. When asked about accommodations, alumni gave the accommodations an average of four out of five starts.


Alumni response to Kootenai has been largely positive. All four alumni surveyed by Rehabs gave the facility perfect five out of five scores when asked if they would recommend treatment at Kootenai Health.

Alumni reviews praise the quality of personalized treatment, owing to a compassionate staff and limited number of clients served. Belinda gave the facility high marks across the board, including five out of five stars for treatment effectiveness, staff support, meals and nutrition, and cleanliness. She told Rehabs.com: “It's a facility that allows about 15 patients at a time. It allowed for more individualized treatment.”

Gary agreed, praising Kootenai’s “extremely caring and complete care” and awarding the facility an overall rating of five out of five stars. R.T.K. also gave credit to the staff, writing to Rehabs.com: “great education and supportive counselors” adding “It's been the third treatment center I've been to and I now understand my disease clearly. They educate the patient.”


There's currently no specific information available on pricing via Kootenai’s website. The facility does accept most commercial insurance plans, as well as Medicare and Medicaid

Went into emergency, treated, triaged, admitted and spent little over 24 hours....fantastic in every respect, including staff, care, food, etc. Don't want a repeat, but the hospital did a great job and provided excellent care and service
