Montana Drug Rehab

Your Treatment Options + State Drug Abuse Facts


Drug addiction changes a person’s life and the lives of those around him or her in many negative ways. As the person becomes focused on the substance and the use of it, the rest of a full life becomes neglected. It’s likely for the person and family to experience the effects of money difficulties, health problems and other issues. Treatment can help by changing this course and providing methods for living in a healthier way.

In 2014, Montana had slightly fewer drug overdoses than the national average, with 125 deaths (or 12.4 fatalities per 100,000 people) reported. Most of the deaths stemmed from opioid use, including heroin, morphine, OxyContin, OxyCododone, and fentanyl. These numbers follow national trends, leading to many states initiating prescription drug registries.

Montana has many treatment facilities available or its residents can visit any of the high-caliber treatment centers in other states to ensure they get the treatment they need.

Type & Length of Care:

Long Term Treatment Programs (90-Day)

When people need intensive treatment or to separate from their addiction-focused lives, they often rely on long-term programs. This type often lasts for 90 days, although some programs last as long as a year. A person could expect comprehensive treatment that covers all aspects of the drug use while living on-site in facilities and away from negative influences.

Short Term Treatment Programs (28 / 30 Day)

A benefit of short-term programs is that they feel like less of a permanent commitment, helping people quickly enter them and start getting better. They’re also a good choice if someone needs to make a fast change and get back to their responsibilities, such as a job. Some short-term programs are intensive while others are less involved. Treatment professionals tend to recommend a person transition to other treatment after one of these programs.

Outpatient / Inpatient

People can enter inpatient facilities where they live at the site of the rehab program or they can choose outpatient programs that let them come and go. Inpatient programs give a safe environment free of daily pressures and triggers while outpatient programs offer independence and provide treatment on the side of regular responsibilities.

Residential Treatment Services:


A medical detoxification starts the treatment process by stabilizing patients as they go off the substance. It keeps this process safe and increases the patient’s comfort level. Once the person has the drug out of the body, he or she can move on to other forms of treatment.

Sober-living house

A sober-living house provides a drug-free place to recover without the monitoring of residential treatment. Many people enter a home like this after rehab and before going home. These houses tend to have rules that help people get back on track with normal living.

Dual diagnosis

A lot of facilities are equipped to treat a dual diagnosis, which is when someone has a mental health issue, such as depression, along with an addiction. In these cases, it’s important for the person to be treated by professionals in both specialties.

Commonly Abused & Treated Drugs:

The most prevalent drugs throughout Montana are meth and opioids. Marijuana and cocaine are also popular, while the rate of ecstasy use is swiftly climbing. In Montana, approximately 10 percent of all adolescents reported using illicit drugs during 2013 and 2014—a number that has remained relatively unchanged for years. During the same time, about 65,000 Montana residents age 12 or older reported a dependency on alcohol within the year prior to taking the survey.
