Rutland Mental Health Services, formerly Evergreen Substance Abuse Services, is a part of the larger Community Care Network of services in the Rutland, Vt. area. It provides substance abuse services via intensive outpatient (IOP) treatment. Services are offered to anyone regardless of gender, age, or sexual orientation, including specialized tracks for children. It is one of only seven facilities in Vermont to provide treatment for seniors or older adults. Detox is not offered by this facility.


Upon entry, clients will receive a thorough substance abuse assessment and evaluation to determine their appropriate course of treatment. The program consists of 20 different three-hour sessions over the course of five weeks (four days of attendance per week) during either the day or evening. This flexible schedule allows clients to maintain their daily routines while also receiving the treatment and care that they need. Individuals receive regular updates and feedback on their individualized treatment plans as they progress through the program.

The treatment process begins with a complete biopsychosocial assessment to determine each seniors’ needs. This assessment provides a full-spectrum analysis of each clients’ mental and behavioral health state to direct the development of a treatment program.

The facility offers a DUI program called the Impaired Driver Rehabilitation Program (IDRP). Only 12 (28.6 percent) of facilities in Vermont have DUI programs. Working through this program, clients can find alternatives to prison and address legal requirements. There is a range of legal services provided by the facility that this program can apply to.

Family sessions are included in the therapy plan in order to educate and support the family as the client receives treatment. Clients also discuss relapse prevention and learn about aftercare support for follow up after completion of the program. Aftercare groups may address gender-specific issues, co-occurring mental health disorders, and maintenance recovery.

The facility also offers several community-based services for substance abuse. The Rocking Horse Circle of Support group offers education and support to women of all ages, including women who are pregnant, who are current substance users themselves, or whose lives have been affected by a loved one’s substance abuse. Only 16 (38.1 percent) of facilities in the state offer treatment for pregnant and postpartum women.

Project CRASH is an educational program offered to individuals whose driving privileges have been suspended due to violations involving substances. Treatment court is offered in collaboration with Rutland District Court, the State's Attorney's Office, the Public Defender's Office, as well as other community stakeholders to offer other options besides legal proceedings to individuals in trouble with the law for substance use. Finally, the re-entry program offers support services for men and women who are reentering the community after being incarcerated for substance-related crimes.


The facility employs a team of counselors, legal specialists, and certified/licensed DUI and legal program specialists. Clients may also work with parole officers and other members of law enforcement depending on their situation.
