ABOUT L.E. PHILLIPS LIBERTAS TREATMENT CENTER
Founded in 1977 as a service of St. Joseph’s Hospital, a hospital founded on Franciscan principles in Chippewa Falls, the L.E. Phillips Libertas Treatment Center offers detox, residential, and outpatient treatment for adults struggling with substance use disorder and mental health disorders. Adolescent treatment is available for this struggling with mental health disorders only. The center is located on the site of St. Joseph’s Hospital, on the northeastern outskirts of Chippewa Falls, near Lake Wissota.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Detox services are for adults only.
Treatment primarily follows the 12-Steps, along with the Matrix Model and motivational interviewing (MI). Clients participate in individual and group therapy, educational sessions, assignments, and leisure activities. A family program offers loved ones the opportunity to develop an improved understanding of addiction and recovery.
The residential program lasts 28 days, and the center also offers a four-week outpatient program, on which the intensity of treatment tapers down as the program progresses, from partial hospitalization to general outpatient. General outpatient treatment is also available outside of the four-week course.
The facility’s website notes that the staff includes “medical staff” and “quality colleagues,” but doesn’t detail their credentials. The five individuals polled to date on the staff’s level of training and experience gave it an average rating of 3.2 out of five stars.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
The L.E. Phillips center is a tobacco-free environment, but smoking cessation aids and strategies are provided where necessary. The five individuals polled to date on the center’s cleanliness gave it an average rating of four stars.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
Alumni reviews submitted to Rehabs.com to date were mixed. Of the four alumni asked whether they would recommend the center, one would, one would not, and two remained neutral on the question. The same four alumni indicated that treatment itself was adequate, giving the center an average rating of 3.25 out of five stars for the overall effectiveness of its treatment, but that extracurricular activities might be lacking — the center received average ratings of 2.25 stars for its counseling options and 2.75 stars for its exercise options. Alum Brianna commended the center for its honesty, and Kathleen wrote: “Gives a person the opportunity to look at where they r in life and decide if they want to take a look at a different way of living.” Kathleen, however, also added: “Doesn't give good after care instructions and don't help u set up after care at all. It's pretty much like they will take u in if insurance covers u and kicks u out the second it doesnt.”
At the time of this writing, secondary sites yielded just two reviews, both for five stars, and both left on Google. “The best! Still clean after 5 yrs!” Heather wrote, and Todd added: “If you need help, come here!”
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
All three of the loved ones polled by Rehabs.com to date gave positive feedback. Two of the reviewers described the staff as supportive, and two noted that the program had been helpful for their loved one. “The staff was friendly and supportive. It greatly benefited my father,” an anonymous reviewer wrote, and David added: “Very individual focused. Caring & supportive.” In addition, mother Debbie praised the center’s treatment for young people, writing: “They work very hard with the youth in becoming clean and helping the entire family deal with drug addiction.”
In the only less-than-stellar comment submitted to Rehabs.com by a loved one to date, Debbie wrote that longer-term treatment would have benefitted her son.
According to the organization’s website, the residential program accepts most HMOs, managed care policies, and private insurance policies. The day program accepts all the above, plus Medicaid and Medicare. The four individuals polled to date on the center’s affordability gave it an average rating of 3.5 out of five stars.
