Its outpatient program and intensive outpatient programs (IOP) are available for adults and 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 12-steps based. It consists of individual and group therapy, as well as education programs. Clients undergo weekly drug screens and family therapy sessions.
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 inpatient program lasts two to three weeks. It includes activities therapy and, during the school year, school time, so clients do not lose progress with their schooling.
Once treatment is over, the aftercare program lasts up to 16 weeks. While less intensive, thehelps 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.
Libertas Treatment Center is accredited by the Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations and certified by the State of Wisconsin. The treatment team consists of certified counselors, physicians, nurses, psychologists, and social workers.

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
To date, Best-rehabs.com has received feedback from two loved ones who posted more critical reviews of the facility. One loved one gave the facility three out of five stars for treatment effectiveness, while the other gave the facility four stars.
Both loved ones were parents of adolescent clients who cited specific areas of concerns about the facility and how they could improve: Debbie wrote about the length of stay and how the program was too short. She wrote: “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.” She added: “I believe each patient should be treated individually and their own needs, not what insurance will pay.”
An anonymous parent also criticized the facility’s treatment effectiveness. “I don’t think it is an in depth treatment.I think nutrition needs to play an important role in therapy,” the parent wrote after identifying the reward system and the facility’scapabilities as other areas for improvement.
On CiteHealth, one parent gave the facility one out of five stars for its treatment of their child.  “Most of the staff seemed detached and ambivalent,” the anonymous loved one wrote before adding: “my daughter was discharged for not immediately engaging herself in their program.”
