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 those 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. After detox, clients are referred to an inpatient or outpatient program.
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 during the day, on which the intensity of treatment tapers down as the program progresses, from partial hospitalization to general outpatient. Family sessions are available once a week, in the evenings. General outpatient treatment is also available outside of the four-week course.
According to the facility’s website, the treatment team includes counselors, physicians, psychiatrists, licensed and registered nurses, psychologists, social workers, and clergy. 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. Clients can make phone calls and can bring a prepaid long distance calling card with them. The five individuals polled to date on the center’s cleanliness gave it an average rating of four out of five 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.
Aftercare and discharge assistance appear to be lacking. Alum Kathleen 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.”
On Google, the facility earned five out of five stars from all three reviewers to date. In a representative alumni review, alum Heather wrote: “The best! Still clean after 5 yrs!”
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
All three of the loved ones polled by Rehabs.com to date gave positive feedback. Those loved ones asked if they would recommend the facility would.
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 private insurance policies, Medicare, or Medicaid. The four individuals polled to date on the center’s affordability gave it an average rating of 3.5 out of five stars.
