Family Involvement

is crucial to addiction recovery. Participation by parents, as well as other family members, is expected from the moment the adolescent is admitted into treatment through the Family Program that occurs at the end of his or her inpatient stay.

Through treatment, Libertas counselors provide progress reports to parents, as well as a post-discharge treatment plan. There is also a two-day Family Program conducted near the end of the inpatient stay which provides education to parents and siblings on the nature of addiction, methods of coping with the addicted adolescent, parenting techniques, and methods for communication within the family.

Health Insurance Approvals

HMOs and managed care companies vary among carriers and policies. Parents should review the applicable benefits information and contact the insurer for their alcohol/drug inpatient rehabilitation benefits, how those benefits can be obtained, and pre-authorization requirements. Health insurance plans usually have several criteria for approval of inpatient treatment.

Libertas staff can provide guidance in regard to all insurance concerns. Wisconsin Medical Assistance is accepted, and it may be necessary for the referring professional to call the insurance company with clinical information prior to admission.

Hope. Empowerment. Optimism. Promise.
