It was aful do not send your kid there


My son was in a very dark place when he arrived in Montana. He went kicking and screaming and only agreed to go because he ran out of options. In the end, it turned out to be the experience of a lifet...


this place is a scam. The only reason they have a high success rate is because it is measured on a low timeframe of sobriety while patients are still in another sober living. The cabins you live in ar...

As a parent whose son attended WTC, the only weak link I observed in this otherwise stellar treatment center is the way one of the owner's sons, who is a counselor working directly with the boys, is a...

The most unprofessional program that exists. My son who was 18 years old attended WTC because they assured us that they are able to handle teenagers who attempt to leave programs and that was not ...


I went to WTC in 2004-ish(?) at the age of 16. I am now 27. Life has not been easy. I have been to two rehabs since and spent time in numerous jails and years exploring the depths of self-destructi...


Good structure/schedule. Have seen everything since its been open for so long Strict but fair Have been sober over 10yrs. Great facility


Simple, clear cut, no ability to "cheat" while there No fancy amenities; but I do not believe that those are needed in true rehab. This sticks to the basics of getting clean and getting counseling.


Extracurricular activities, individual attention A good mix for the right person


wilderness training as alternative expensive


Not the treatment centers fault. They were excellent, the boy is a hard core addict. Great outdoor experiences. Groups and individual hikes and campouts and etc. Mountain climbing, etc. Also coun...


its away from civilazion but too far from civilization. its ok but not sure long term.


Adolescent and Young Adult Addiction Treatment.


It's a great place. They will make you work for your sobriety. So, if you aren't ready to get sober, don't go there. This is ONLY for people SERIOUS about recovery.

Areas of Focus
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

The focus of cognitive behavioral therapy (also called CBT) is helping people to understand the thoughts and emotions that underlie their addiction with the goal of learning new, healthier and more productive ways to understand and express themselves.


The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.
