Rocky Mountain Treatment Center Philosophy
Our philosophy is centered upon recognizing addiction as a chronic, relapsing brain disorder characterized by compulsive use of drugs and/or alcohol. Treatment requires a holistic approach based on a biopsychosocial model of care. This includes the physical, emotional, behavioral, family, social, and spiritual needs of the client. Within Rocky Mountain Treatment Center, our clients are engaged in real life activities and pursuits, allowing each individual to confront challenges, explore ideas, and build their foundation for a flourishing and comprehensive lifestyle of recovery.
Areas of Specialization
All clients meet with their primary counselor weekly for individual counseling. Additional sessions are provided based on the needs of the client.
Therapeutic interaction with our horses brings awareness to and helps develop interpersonal skills such as healthy boundaries, recognizing emotions, and equipping clients with the tools to improve damaged communication skills. Our equine therapy program is developed and run by a licensed addiction counselor, certified by the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH Int’l.)

ABOUT ROCKY MOUNTAIN TREATMENT CENTER
Located on the Missouri River in the heart of Great Falls, Mont., Rocky Mountain Treatment Center (RMTC) offers residential treatment services for alcohol and drug addiction and co-occurring disorders. The average program lasts 30 days, though clients have option to extend up to three months. Medically monitored detoxification services and a day treatment option are both available.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Treatment at RMTC is holistic and based on the biopsychosocial model of care and the 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous. According to the facility’s website, the program recognizes and treats addiction as a “chronic, relapsing brain disorder characterized by compulsive use of drugs and alcohol.”
Throughout their stay, residents attend 12-step support meetings on- and off-campus and engage regularly in both step work and readings from AA’s Big Book. Individual counseling sessions are scheduled once per week, with the option to sign up for more if needed. Group therapy sessions are held multiple times per week, and spiritual awareness workshops and addiction education classes are also offered. There’s also a family program that includes an education workshop, individual counseling, and group therapy.
Recreation is another important part of treatment at RMTC, and the surrounding mountains, grassy plains, and open Montana sky provide the perfect backdrop for outdoor activity. Residents take part in equine and nature therapy, go hiking at nearby state parks and lakes, and engage in other leisure and social activities.
The treatment team includes a clinical director, licensed addictions counselors, a licensed practical nurse, a case manager, and an equine therapist and counselor.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Set inside a restored historic three-story building surrounded by a spacious lawn, the 26-bed facility offers shared rooms and a communal dining room. There is also a seasonal outdoor deck, as well as a volleyball net and sitting area on the lawn.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
Of the seven alumni surveyed by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing, two gave RMTC negative feedback, while the other five offered positive reviews.
The five satisfied alumni credited the rehab with saving their lives, helping them realize their potential, and for simply being “truly interested” in their recovery. “Rocky Mountain Treatment Center not only opened my eyes to the potential of a life worth living, but helped me to achieve it,” wrote D.K.P. in a representative review. “With a friendly, capable, and confident staff RMTC was pivotal in setting me on a successful path of recovery that I will maintain throughout the remainder of my life.”
Despite these positive reports, another alum complained about receiving “little to no follow up after completing the program.” And another noted a staff that care, but are “money hungry” and “yell too much,” advising others: “Don’t go there.”
The facility fared very well on Facebook, receiving an average 4.4 out of five stars based on 38 reviews. 30 of the 38 reviews gave a solid five stars.
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
The two loved ones polled by Rehabs.com as of this writing gave RMTC mostly positive feedback. One anonymous receiver awarded the facility almost all five out of five stars across 15 different evaluated metrics, including its treatment effectiveness, family participation, and its staff’s level of training and experience.
The other gave RMTC mostly four and five-star ratings across the 15 different metrics. They highlighted a kind staff and good food, but noted a lack of group activities. Nevertheless, they wrote: “Best place to go if you need help and are in the area.”
WHAT STAFF SAY
The one staffer surveyed by Rehabs.com gave RMTC a mixed review. While they cited strong spirituality and a solid family program as strengths of the facility, they also reported a lack of supervision and noted how easy it was for clients to break rules or get away with deviant behavior.
The facility accepts most private insurance, including Blue Cross/Blue Shield.
