Find Hope Close to Home

At L.E. Phillips-Libertas, you’ll find comfort in a center of excellence that provides a holistic recovery program for people struggling with substance use challenges. It’s a part of a collaborative effort between L.E. Phillips-Libertas Treatment Center and Prevea Health to help individuals addicted to heroin, opioid and/or methamphetamine.

In 2020, L.E. Phillips-Libertas was awarded a federal grant from the Health Resources & Services Administration (HRSA) to lead and operate a Northwest Wisconsin Heroin Opioid Prevention Education (HOPE) Consortium for rural opioid response planning on how to best provide additional resources in Barron, Chippewa, Rusk and Washburn Counties. In 2021, L.E. Phillips-Libertas was awarded additional grant funding from HRSA to implement an opioid response plan developed by the Northwest Wisconsin Heroin Opioid Prevention Education (NW WI HOPE) Consortium.

Model of Care

By using a person-centered and self-directed approach to care, L.E. Phillips-Libertas Treatment Center builds on the strength and resilience of individuals, families and communities to take responsibility for their sustained health, wellness and recovery from substance use.
People in recovery and their loved ones are involved in all aspects and phases of treatment. All services are individualized, and a multidisciplinary recovery plan is developed with the person receiving services and any others he or she identifies. By including the person’s hopes, assets, strengths, interests and goals, each person’s recovery plan reflects a complete understanding of behavioral health concerns, medical concerns and the desire to build a meaningful life in the community.

Who qualifies?

L.E. Phillips-Libertas Treatment Center provides services to people living with a substance use disorder. All patients are welcome; however, priority admission is given to women who are pregnant.



Individuals are assessed by a substance use counselor using criteria from the American Society of Addiction Medicine to determine the level of care each individual needs.
  • Substance use counseling
  • Medications for addiction treatment
  • Buprenorphine or buprenorphine and naloxone to reduce opioid dependency, withdrawal effects and cravings
  • Naltrexone to prevent someone with addiction to opioids from feeling the effects of heroin, morphine or codeine
  • Case management and care coordination
  • Inpatient withdrawal management and residential treatment
  • Connection with sober living

What is case management?

Individuals are assigned a substance abuse counselor to work directly with them through their entire recovery journey. The substance abuse counselor is the individual’s point of contact to coordinate all aspects of his or her care including primary care, peer and recovery supports, therapy, employment skills training, medication monitoring and individual and family education by counselors in their home area.
Case managers help:
  • Apply for food assistance/finding food pantries
  • Connect with the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development’s Division of Vocational Rehabilitation
  • Make a personal budget
  • Find parenting education
  • Connect with Aging and Disability Resource Center for programs and applications
  • Find a counselor/therapist/psychiatrist
  • Find a job
  • Get clothes and household supplies
  • Work on educational goals (General Education Diploma (GED)/High School Equivalency Diploma (HSED), apply for college)
  • Connect with domestic violence support
  • Connect with legal advocates
  • Assist with scheduling primary care, prenatal and other medical appointments

When someone completes treatment with the help of these collaborative efforts, transition to county-based or private pay treatment is completed as needed.
