The admission process is quick and simple at Wilderness Treatment Center. The first time you call you will speak with one of our admission counselors. We will screen for appropriateness, share information about Wilderness Treatment Center, answer any additional questions and send you the forms required for admission. These forms (see below) must be filled out, signed and faxed back to us at 406-854-2835 or emailed to Admissions
Please contact us as soon as you have booked transportation. We will then ensure there is staff available to pick up the patient from the airport. Unfortunately we do not have the staff to return to town so if you are accompanying the patient we ask that you rent a car for transport.
We do not need a direct referral for admission. Most families will call on their own finding us through a variety of referral sources. Private therapist, psychiatrist, psychologists, doctors, outpatient/inpatient programs, interventionists, educational consultants, employee assistance professionals, addiction consultants, alumni, internet, attorneys, probation officers, etc. may all recommend our program, but we will still need to speak with a family member or guardian.
Please have your insurance card available if you would like us to check your insurance.
