Two organizations are helping Chippewa Falls residents address addiction issues.
Partners since November 2017, L.E. Phillips-Libertas Treatment Center of HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital in Chippewa Falls and the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation combine their knowledge to provide advanced treatment for addiction.
“We have experienced a great collaboration,” says Toni Simonson, PhD, FACHE, Executive Director, Behavioral Health at HSHS Western Wisconsin Division and Prevea Behavioral Care. “We share clinical knowledge, best practices, and initiatives designed to elevate outcomes and satisfaction rates for our patients.”
The L.E. Phillips-Libertas Treatment Center offers inpatient and outpatient addiction treatment for adults, outpatient services for adolescents, and support programs and educational materials for both. Staff members and patients benefit from accessibility to additional research and educational materials available through the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation partnership.
“Every day, I see patients selecting resources they want to read because the information is applicable to them,” Simonson says. “This lets us provide a higher level of care.”
Additionally, staff members at L.E. Phillips–Libertas Treatment Center may consult with addiction specialists at Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation for complex cases, all while protecting the patient’s confidentiality. Hazelden Betty Ford also refers patients discharged from their care who live in or near Chippewa Falls to our center for aftercare support or outpatient care, providing a continuity of care for addiction treatment that’s close to home.
