ABOUT RUTLAND MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES
Rutland Mental Health Services (RMHS) provides outpatient treatment to clients at all stages of life who are struggling with mental health problems and/or substance use disorder. Located in the mountainous town of Rutland, Vermont, the facility also offers case management services, vocational and housing assistance, and groups for clients with co-occurring disorders, along with specialized programs for women, teens, and the elderly. RMHS is one of just nine substance abuse treatment facilities in Vermont (nearly 20 percent of all facilities in the state) to offer specialized programing for seniors.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Clients are set up with an individual care plan (ICP) based on a comprehensive assessment. This plan details the best courses for treatment and is updated at least once each year.
Treatment at RHMS is holistic and utilizes individual, group, and family therapies, and offers skills training, medication management, and crisis planning. Supportive counseling and other aftercare options are available for continued support.
Specifically for adults, therapies are aimed at helping clients attain their goals and access community resources for better living. Clients also receive psychiatric evaluations. According to the facility’s website, eldercare is available, along with 24/7 emergency services.
Clients struggling with a substance abuse disorder may participate in Quitting Time, which is an intensive outpatient program (IOP) consisting of therapy, relapse prevention, and a focus on the 12-step model for abstinence. Participants go to 20 three-hour sessions over the span of five weeks.
The Rocking Horse Program is designed specifically for women of all ages, including those pregnant or with children, who are either struggling themselves or living with someone struggling with addiction. RMHS also offers DUI courses and treatment court which focuses on coordinating legal services, as well as a program for men and women transitioning out of incarceration.
