About our Behavioral Health Services
Your behavioral health counselor will partner with your primary care provider and a behavioral health care manager to address any concerns you may have. Different appointments options are available depending on the level and type of care you are interested in.
We have seven licensed behavioral health counselors on staff who are available to work with you one-on-one in a safe, caring, and confidential environment. People may engage in individual therapy for a lot of reasons including: a desire for personal growth, treatment of a substance use disorder or to address depression, anxiety or another type of mood disorder. We offer individual counseling appointments at all of our clinics.
For patients interested in group therapy we currently offer an LGBTQ group, a sobriety group and a PACE group for people with chronic pain. At our Superior Clinic we also offer an Art Group.
Health Behavior Consultations (HBC)
Through a partnership with the University of Montana, Department of Psychology, we are offering HBC. You might be interested in this service if you want to change a behavior that affects your health and well being. Common behaviors addressed during these visits include: sleep hygiene, stress management, weight management and smoking cessation.
Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT)
Partnership Health Center’s behavioral health providers support patients receiving MAT for the treatment of alcohol, prescription pain medication, and other opioid misuse disorders. PHC’s behavioral health providers are part of your care team and work closely with your primary care provider to help you achieve recovery. Call 406-258-4337 to learn more about PHC’s MAT program.
Schedule an Appointment
First, schedule an appointment with your primary care provider and talk to them about how behavioral health care can benefit you. They will give you a behavioral health referral and introduce you to one of our behavioral health care managers. The behavioral health care manager will work with you over the phone in between scheduled provider visits to set goals, problem solve, monitor symptoms and coordinate your care within PHC.
Please note that you must get a referral from your medical provider at PHC before you can schedule a behavioral health appointment.
No-Show & Cancellation Policy
Because behavioral health appointments are in high demand, we request that you give at least 24 hours’ notice if you need to cancel or reschedule. We find for patients with consistent appointment no shows or cancellations it is best to move to a same-day appointment. Your therapist will discuss this with you if this option appears to be the right fit.
Partnership Health Center is not a crisis facility. If you need immediate assistance, please call 911 or use these resources.
