“Thank you so much for helping me see what has always been right in front of me and that’s a glimmer of hope. I feel like my life has turned for the better and couldn’t have done it without you.”

School Based Programs

Substance use and Mental Health Services within School District II:

Rimrock has partnered with School District II to develop programs to offer counseling for mental health and/or substance abuse issues within several schools.

Five schools host a part-time licensed addiction counselor who works with school officials and parents to support students in maintaining an abstinence based lifestyle. Individual counseling as well as group counseling are offered to assist students in thinking through and making healthy lifestyle decisions regarding substance use. Peer support, motivational enhancement, relapse prevention and Seven Challenges groups are just some examples of the types of groups offered by clinicians in this setting.

The High School Support Therapy Program (HSST) offers full-time mental health counselors within the high schools. The HSST counselors work with school officials and parents to support students who may be struggling with a range of emotional issues that are in need of additional support. They also work to connect students and their families to community resources.
