AltaCare

Altacare at Libby Middle High School

 Comprehensive School-based and 
Community Treatment Program (CSCT)

 Providing hope today for a better tomorrow.

 

What is Altacare?

 

Altacare is a program that provides intensive therapeutic services to youth through a school-based program.  The goal of Altacare is to develop, maintain, and support the student’s capacity to achieve success in both the public school classroom and his/her community.

Altacare provides students with the opportunity to have their therapeutic needs met with minimum disruption.  The program is intended to promote students’ positive involvement in their community, school, and home while affording youth the opportunity to receive specialized social and emotional development in the least restrictive treatment environment possible. 

Altacare provides Libby Middle High School with 4 mental health professionals, including 2 masters level therapists.  These professionals treat children in school on a one-to-one basis; this often avoids the need for an out-of-school or out-of-home placement.

Referral Process 

 

Children are screened for admission to CSCT services by an Altacare therapist, the child’s parent/guardian, and a school administrator.  The child must meet specific clinical criteria established by the state of Montana (more details about the eligible diagnoses can be directed to our staff).  Each child that qualifies receives an individual treatment plan that allows the child to continue in school with minimal disruption to his/her normal schedule.

 

Payment Options                     

We accept Medicaid, Montana CHIP, and various private insurances.  We also accept private pay for families who have no insurance benefits.
