This project will develop a plan to integrate behavioral health services into the Northern Rockies Medical Center’s outpatient practice, which serves the Cut Bank community in northern Montana. In addition to planning to offer integrated behavioral health services, the project will develop a plan for a referral system with options for those struggling with substance use disorders and mental health issues. Potential partnerships that this project will foster include a local private practice counselor, Indian Health Services, Crystal Creek Lodge Treatment Center, Kalispell Regional Health, and Marias Medical Center.
