Altacare, a Comprehensive School and Community Treatment Program (CSCT).
Altacare is Montana’s leading provider of in-school mental health services. With Altacare, children and adolescents can receive intensive outpatient treatment while they attend school - causing little-to-no disruption to their normal lives.
All programs offer seven-day-a-week programming and are highly structured in order to provide students with the intensive treatment services they need. The specific interventions and objectives included in the treatment plan are unique to the individual and his or her needs. In addition to face-to-face therapy, we believe that participation in positive recreational and leisure activities plays an important role in our patient’s recovery. Time to play, both as individuals and as team members, is built into the Acadia Montana daily schedule.
