The administration, board of directors, and team of professionals at Rimrock Trails are dedicated to helping create lasting, positive change in the lives of individuals and families. Rimrock Trails was established as a nonprofit, adolescent residential substance use program at the Prineville Pioneer Memorial Hospital in 1990. Four years later the organization acquired property on 9th Street in Prineville where the flagship program currently operates. A second building was constructed on the property in 1998 to house outpatient services, administrative offices, a learning center, indoor rock climbing wall, gym, and weight room. We now operate comprehensive outpatient care in three areas throughout Central Oregon for individuals under age 25, and we are approaching three decades of service. Rimrock Trails now leads the system of care for addressing substance use and mental health disorders of young adults in our region.
In 2019, we expanded our outpatient services to include mental health treatment for both young children and adults.

“I joined Rimrock Trails in 2019 as a consultant and was thrilled when I was asked to be a full-time employee. What impresses me most about Rimrock Trails is that the company allows me to wear multiple hats, empowers me with the freedom to make decisions, and has a multi-talented workforce to team up with. Another great thing about working with Rimrock Trails is that a “typical day” is never typical. There is always something exciting happening and every day is filled with new learning opportunities. I have a lot to be thankful for.”

"I joined Rimrock Trails in 2022 as a child therapist intern and have continued to be blown away by the amount of support they have provided me along the way. I love that I am able to spend every day providing comprehensive, evidenced based treatment while helping strengthen family connections for children and teenagers of all ages. What I love most about this company is the diversity and that no one day will ever be the same. While working at Rimrock Trails, I have had the privilege of experiencing the immense amount of compassion, kindness and support that is given to not only the patients but the employees as well. I look forward to graduating in September and continuing with my passion."

During my time here, I have continued to learn and grow as a person and a therapist and have been encouraged to build my practice by supporting the positive mental health outcomes of adolescents, adults, and families in our community. Rimrock allows me to do what I love - be there for my family and grow professionally."
