ABOUT LIBERTAS TREATMENT CENTER

Located in Green Bay, Wis., Libertas Treatment Center offers substance abuse treatment services to adults and adolescents.
The facility offers a residential treatment program for adolescents, as well as an outpatient programs and intensive outpatient programs (IOP) for both adults and adolescents. It is one of the 54 programs in the state that offers specialized programming for adolescents. Medical detox services are not available on-site.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

First, new clients undergo an assessment that takes approximately two hours to determine which type of treatment is most appropriate. This assessment includes an interview and a drug screening. For the adolescent programs, parents are also interviewed.

Treatment is based on the 12-steps model of recovery, which is used in nearly 70 percent of Wisconsin’s treatment facilities. Programming also consists of individual and group therapy, as well as education programs. Clients also undergo weekly drug screens. Family therapy sessions are also incorporated into programming.

The adult intensive outpatient program (IOP) consists of group therapy sessions that are three hours a session, three sessions a week, with either morning or evening sessions. There are five to 10 participants per session. The program lasts seven weeks. A less intensive outpatient program is also available for adults.

For adolescents, three programs are available: inpatient residential, outpatient, and intensive outpatient. For the outpatient programs, treatment takes place two hours a day, four days a week after school. This treatment typically lasts four to six weeks.

The adolescent residential program lasts two to three weeks making it one of Wisconsin’s 24 non-hospital, short-term programs. In addition to counseling and educational classes, the program includes activities therapy and, during the school year, academic instruction.

Once treatment is over, the aftercare program lasts up to 16 weeks. While less intensive, the aftercare program helps clients and their families prepare for lifelong sobriety.

Family participation is mandatory for the adolescent programs. For the aftercare program, family members are required to participate in a monthly family component. For the inpatient program, parents must participate in a two-day Family Program scheduled near the end of treatment. For the outpatient program, parents participate in special weekly sessions.

I really liked how involved my son's counselor was with his treatment.Intake wasn't too difficult. Not really qualified for duel diagnosis,didn't like the particular reward system they used.Didn't stress sponsorship enough. This is a good first step treatment facility,I don't think it is an in depth treatment.I think nutrition needs to play an important role in therapy.

My son attended this facility twice over the last couple years. I thought they did a good job at caring for him and getting him on the first step of getting clean. They worked well with our family in teaching us about addiction so we can help him. Addiction affects the entire family, not just the addict. The only thing I think needs to change, is the length of stay should be more than 3 weeks. My son was in deep in drugs for a long time, and 3 weeks is not enough, Not even on his second time through. I believe each patient should be treated individually and their own needs, not what insurance will pay. However, the program itself is a very good program. I fully recommend it.
