Rimrock’s Outpatient Treatment programs provide a range of services at the least intensive level of care within our continuum of care.
Outpatient care is often the first contact a patient or family member has with Rimrock. The broad range of Outpatient services we offer meets the needs of all patients and often serves as a transition for patients from more intensive levels of care. The availability of walk-in assistance and easy accessibility to clinical evaluation is integral to the delivery of services at Rimrock.
The clinical staff for this level of service are Licensed Addiction Counselors and Licensed Mental Health Counselors. On-call scheduling is provided to assure that any individual seeking assistance can be seen on a walk-in basis, without unnecessary delays, between 8:00am and 5:00pm, weekdays. After hours, this assistance is provided by the staff of Rimrock’s Medical Unit. Thus, 24 hours a day, anyone may receive basic screening services to assure appropriate intervention or referral.
The following Outpatient services are available at Rimrock:
