L.E. Phillips-Libertas Treatment Center earns state award

On May 24 during a Wisconsin Nicotine Treatment Integration Project meeting in Madison, HSHS St. Joseph's Hospital's L.E. Phillips-Libertas Treatment Center received the David 'Mac' Macmaster Award for pioneering efforts to address tobacco use in the behavioral health setting. The center was one of five facilities in the state to earn this year's award.

 

Approximately 7,900 tobacco-related deaths occur each year in Wisconsin, and almost half of those deaths occur in those who also have alcohol, drug or mental disorders. Wisconsin has a network of alcohol and drug treatment programs and counselors trained to create successful tobacco recovery plans for those who have additional disorders. L.E. Phillips-Libertas Treatment Center is one such program. In fact, in 2012 L.E. Phillips-Libertas Treatment Center was the second facility in the state to treat tobacco dependence like any other substance dependence.

 

As part of the award, the treatment center received a $2,000 grant, which will be used to help integrate tobacco treatment further into local resources treating substance use disorders and behavioral health issues.

 

L.E. Phillips-Libertas Treatment Center in Chippewa Falls offers a full spectrum of adult substance use disorder services, adolescent substance use disorder services, and behavioral health services.
