The hands-on work experience interns receive in the Rimrock Trail's Internship Program is invaluable and cannot be obtained in a classroom setting. Our organization’s program exposes upcoming clinicians to many aspects of our company’s counseling services including, individual, group, couples, and family counseling. They gain valuable work experience and supervision, all while fulfilling their required practicums.

Why intern at Rimrock Trails?
Gain valuable work experience
Interns have the opportunity to apply acquired knowledge to real work experiences, witnessing firsthand the day-to-day job duties and client experiences they can expect to encounter. In addition to learning the specialized skills of a particular specialty, transferable skills such as communication, teamwork, and Electronic Health Records proficiency are also obtained in the Rimrock Trail's Internship Program.

Rimrock Trails Treatment Services is grateful to receive $4,000 in grant funds from the Northwest Farm Credit Services Rural Community Grant Fund. This funding supports the work Rimrock Trails already has underway including, a $50,000 renovation project in our Crook County-based adolescent residential treatment program.
Thank you to Matt Bassitt, Matt Keck and the Team at Northwestern Home Loans for donating $1,500 towards welcome baskets for the teens in our adolescent residential treatment program, and money towards our outpatient counseling clinic's Scholarship Fund. Because of their generosity, more local individuals and families will be able to access comprehensive evidence-based behavioral health services, no matter their financial circumstances.
