Review by Contributors


Community Addiction Recovery Enterprise (CARE) is a network of seven addiction treatment facilities operated by the Minnesota Department of Human Services. Located in the small town of Carlton on the Wisconsin border, the Liberalis facility offers gender-specific inpatient and outpatient care for women struggling with substance use disorders.


CARE uses the Minnesota Model of treatment, which was developed by the Minnesota Department of Human Services and is now used around the world. Under this model, residents live on-site in a facility that utilizes 12-Step combined with professional help from doctors and addiction and mental health professionals, with abstinence as the ultimate goal.

Using a person-centered approach, the program provides motivational interviewing, family programming, relapse prevention, and medication monitoring. Aftercare planning is also available. Additionally, the women's facility provides sessions on parenting skills, adult learning, domestic violence prevention and recovery, healthy relationships, spirituality, and abuse.


All counseling staff are trained in motivational interviewing. There is currently no further information provided by the facility regarding its treatment staff. However, the single individual polled by to date rated the level of support they received from staff three stars and the staff's level of training and experience four stars.


While there is currently no information provided by the facility regarding its living arrangements and related offerings, both individuals polled by to date on the center's meals and accommodations gave the center three stars in both categories. The single individual polled on the facility's cleanliness gave this aspect of the facility two stars.


Of the two alumni polled by to date, both gave mixed reviews. On the positive end, the reviewers praised the counseling they received. "I thought the counseling helped a lot in my recovery," Rhonda wrote. However, fellow alum K.P. cited tension between clients and a lack of individual time with her counselor.

Rhonda, the only alum polled on the facility's specific offerings, gave mixed ratings to these metrics. Specifically, she gave three out of five stars for holistic offerings and four stars for the overall quality of individual and group counseling. She also rated family participation five stars, the 12-step program three stars, and treatment of co-occurring disorders two stars.


There is currently no information provided on the facility's website regarding cost of treatment. However, CiteHealth indicates that the facility accepts Medicaid, state-financed insurance, Medicare, private insurance, and military insurance.

I had an amazing treatment counselor she helped me change my whole life around. No smoking and lots of drama between clients because it is an all women facility. The food stink. Needed more 1:1 time with my counselor to address tramas. It was ok
