Inpatient Program

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:
  • Examination by an licensed alcohol and drug counselor
  • Physical exam and history intake by the attending physician who will manage medical treatment
  • Biopsychosocial assessment to identify potential co-occurring mental health disorders
  • Psychological assessment by a licensed psychologist, if not recently completed
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 that includes:
  • Group therapy
  • Individual therapy
  • Routine physician visits
  • Chemical dependency education
  • Lectures by professionals on subjects related to addiction
  • Activities therapy
  • Pet therapy
  • Yoga
  • Art therapy
  • School time
Throughout treatment, Libertas counselors provide progress reports to parents or guardians, as well as a post-discharge treatment plan. Participation from parents, guardians and other family members is important. This includes meeting with the child’s counselor on a weekly basis as well as a 2-day family program near the end of treatment to provide education to parents and siblings on the nature of recovery; methods of coping with the difficult challenges of substance use; parenting techniques; and methods for communication within the family.
