Substance Use Disorder Services

Western Montana Mental Health Center is proud to offer a number of programs and treatment options for those suffering from Substance Use Disorders (SUD), and those who may also have a co-occurring mental health disorder.  All SUD services utilize evidenced based interventions to promote a healing recovery process for adults, adolescents, and their families.  Some sites offer specialty programs for woman and criminal offenders. All clinical services are reviewed and licensed annually by the State of Montana.   Special grants are available to offset the cost of services for consumers who are financially eligible. Services are billed to Insurance, Medicaid, Grants, and self.


Assessment, Course, and Treatment (ACT) is for individuals convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol or other drugs. Misdemeanor Dangerous Drug (MDD) intervention services are offered on a continual basis for individuals receiving an MDD citation.  ACT/MDD programs are licensed by the State of Montana, and DUI monitoring may be a part of the program. Each clinic site also offers Minor in Possession (MIP) classes to youth 18 and younger who have been convicted of illegal possession of alcohol.  The MIP program includes youth and family group education, urinalysis and, if needed, further service recommendations.


The following services are offered on an outpatient basis to adults, youth/adolescents and families. Please contact your local Western Montana Mental Health Center office for more information on any of these services.

  • Substance Use Disorder Assessments
  • Outpatient and Intensive Outpatient therapy including group and individual sessions

Those clinic sites providing substance use prevention services tailor services to fit the needs of the community served.  Activities may include mentoring, support of after-school programs, leadership development, provision of substance related information, and community education services. Community prevention programs and projects are aimed at reducing the far-reaching negative consequences alcohol and other drug abuse has on the community and the quality of life of an individual and the family.
