- Substance Abuse Treatment
Substance use disorder is identifiable and treatable. Libertas focuses on the development of new skills, learning the process of recovery and maintaining abstinence, all in a confidential setting.
Recovering from alcohol or drug abuse takes compassion, commitment and hard work. Libertas treatment center embraces these qualities, offering treatment that is founded on sincere concern and loving support for everyone impacted by substance use disorders. Freedom from reliance on alcohol and drugs is liberating, and is the first step toward rediscovering life, happiness and an undeniable spirit.
Libertas means freedom. At Libertas, it is our goal to help free adolescents, adults and their families from substance use disorders. We treat substance use disorder with a dedicated team of experts, providing support and compassion to help you down your road toward recovery.
Libertas is a center of excellence providing holistic substance use recovery programs for individuals and families.
With our holistic approach to treatment, Libertas counselors and nurses assess the whole person. This involves a detailed and complete evaluation that looks at substance use, medical, psychosocial, spiritual, and mental health concerns.
With this comprehensive evaluation, Libertas can determine if there is a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder – when a person has a mood disorder and a problem with alcohol or drugs. A person who has a dual diagnosis has two separate illnesses, and each illness needs its own treatment plan. By treating both disorders, we treat the whole person in order to address all aspects of recovery in a positive manner, for a successful recovery.
Inpatient means the patient is cared for 24 hours a day, seven days a week, in a safe location. Libertas inpatient treatment is offered at the Green Bay location where each patient is assigned a medical doctor and licensed substance abuse counselor, as well as a licensed mental health therapist if needed. An experienced registered nurse is always on campus, creating an individual and team approach to caring for each patient in a healing environment. Libertas accommodates girls and boys, and the average age of those in treatment ranges from 12 to 18 years.
After admission to the inpatient program, a more thorough assessment is done to accurately care for each adolescent:
Libertas looks at recovery from a comprehensive view. Many adolescents use alcohol and drugs as a way of coping with mental health issues. These co-occurring conditions are assessed and treated, with the understanding that relapse is more likely without treatment of all these conditions. Psychiatric consultation is available.
Libertas inpatient recovery program is a highly structured, medically supervised 2 to 3 week program.
