Treatment for adults is available in Green Bay and Marinette. Treatment  planning takes into account the patient’s physical, social, educational, vocational, psychological and spiritual needs. An important aspect of Libertas’s outpatient treatment philosophy is to keep patients active and productive, as both family members and community citizens. In fact, an essential component of the outpatient treatment process is for the patient to assume responsibility for his or her own recovery.

At Libertas, recovery for adults begins with a professional assessment of the patient’s medical, psychological and substance use history by a licensed substance abuse counselor. From that assessment, the level of outpatient care appropriate for each individual is determined.

Adult Outpatient Program

Libertas’s outpatient program offers counseling, education and group treatment for some­one with substance use disorder as well as family members affected by substance use. Libertas offers two approaches to outpatient treatment – group and individual – with multiple levels of care.
 

Group Treatment

The goal of group treatment is to provide adults peer support in positive and safe environment with a counselor. Libertas uses treatment models that respect each adult’s need for independence, focuses on their unique strengths, clearly defines expectations and encourages meaningful participation. The number of weeks is based on individual need, and each level of group treatment includes individual substance use counseling.

Intensive Outpatient Program
Intensive outpatient provides individuals with a structured level of care 3 days a week. Daytime and evening sessions are available. This program is medically and evidenced-based and includes:

  • Physician supervision
  • Individual counseling
  • Group therapy and education
  • Family counseling and education with the patient


Continuing Care Program
After completing intensive outpatient treatment, Libertas recommends adults participate in continuing care. Continuing care program is less intense group meeting once a week designed to enhance an individual’s road to maintaining recovery. This group provides education and focuses on connecting patients with community resources like support groups. Daytime and evening sessions are available.

Early Intervention Program
Early intervention program meets once a week and is designed for individuals who may benefit from a lower level of treatment. Here, we explore the differences between alcohol and drug use, misuse and addiction, and where patients are at in relation to each. Patients are then assisted in developing a personal change plan.
 

Individual Treatment

With individual treatment, the number of sessions is based on each person’s need.
 
Substance use counseling
Individual substance use counseling is a one-on-one session with a Libertas counselor, de­signed for people who are not comfortable in a group setting and who may benefit from a more private setting.

Telemedicine
​Through the use of video screens, patients throughout Wisconsin can be connected with Libertas Treatment Center in Marinette in order to locally access counseling, doctor visits and case management support.
