ABOUT COMMUNITY ADDICTION RECOVERY ENTERPRISE (CARE) – LIBERALIS

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.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

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.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

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 Best-rehabs.com to date rated the level of support they received from staff three stars and the staff’s level of training and experience four stars.
