​​Welcome All

We emphasize the role of empathy, and give specific guidance regarding personal choices, the management of resistance, support for change, and a plan for success, all protocols identified as best practices 

ABOUT US


We endeavor to provide a sense of welcoming and belonging from intake to discharge to all who approach for our services.  We seek to establish a community of treatment that provides respect and dignity to all clients and their family and to the staff.  We believe in the basic humanity of all people and we endorse the concept of evolution and development of life skills through the teaching of therapeutic processes and the sharing of common experiences, not with the goal of a perfect life but of a contented life.  We believe in the concept of treating the whole person through the course of their addiction – mentally, emotionally, physically, and relationally.  We seek to establish a place of healing to relieve the suffering of chemical dependency and its related disorders.  We endeavor to do this through the concept of support, as opposed to confrontation.   We strive to reduce the incidence of substance use disorders through implementation of high quality prevention and education.

State Approved Agency

  ​​​
Choices for Change Counseling has continued to improve services over the past few years. We have been certified at a State Approved Agency since April, 2010 and as such are able to provide ACT classes using the Prime for Life Program to clients convicted of DUI, MIP, or alcohol or drug-related convictions. We have identified “Best Practices” in our field. These usually represent practices that both research and ‘expert opinion’ support as effective. In the alcohol and drug field, Best Practices are being identified for both prevention and recovery. The State of Montana has identified the new ACT educational curriculum as PRIME for Life. This was introduced in Montana on April 26, 2010 and has been implemented state wide in October, 2010. This Program is designed to be delivered in a research-based persuasion protocol. The protocols used in PRIME for Life emphasize the role of empathy, specific guidance regarding personal choices, the management of resistance, support for change, and a plan for success, all protocols identified as best practices
