Core Program: Residential Treatment Services

Program Description

Turning Winds is a Residential Treatment Center (RTC) with services provided at our picturesque campus located in Troy, Montana. Our wide array of professional services is provided seven days per week, 24 hours per day.



Residential Treatment at Turning Winds consists of a series of diagnostic, clinical and professional services. These include, but are not limited to, a comprehensive evaluation and assessment, individualized treatment planning and ongoing review, one individual therapy session per week, a series of group therapy and educational sessions weekly and transition/discharge planning and supervision 24 hours per day, seven days per week.

This phase of treatment is the most intensive offered by Turning Winds and is used to provide the client the structure necessary to gain stability for the road ahead. Once the phase of residential treatment is completed, our clients then have a strong enough foundation in place to begin the process of functioning without the use of negative behaviors, as well as the use of alcohol and drugs.

…The simple, singular focus of our treatment program is to help each student change the behaviors that are hindering their growth by teaching them to create a stable pattern of living through education, process groups, and individualized treatment planning…

Residential Treatment is the catalyst to providing the structure and support they need in order to begin contemplating integration back into his or her community and the realities of daily life. Because of the experience we have at Turning Winds, our Residential Treatment services can be used in a variety of situations. It can be used in the entry level treatment of clients. It can also be used as a step up from a less intensive level of care, or as a step down from a more intensive level of care, such as Inpatient Treatment. The group meetings are treatment-focused, as well as didactic or processing in nature.
