At Libertas, adolescent recovery begins with an assessment with a licensed substance abuse counselor. The assessment includes:

At Libertas, family involvement is an important aspect of recovery. We encourage parents, children and all those within a patient’s support system to participate in recovery and to better understand the serious nature of substance use disorder. Parenting and coping resources are made available to help the entire family in the recovery process.
