The Healing & Serenity You Deserve
A Personalized Experience in Addiction Treatment
Our mission at Liberty House Recovery Center is to offer a fresh perspective on effective alcohol and substance abuse treatment here in Fenton, Michigan. Our team is dedicated to address the many factors that contribute to addiction by tailoring our evidence-based, multifaceted program to each unique individual that enters our care. The facility, located on 34-acres of serene and natural beauty, offers expertise from a variety of specialties, including doctors, therapists, counselors, nurses, coaches, and case managers. Personal chefs, house keeping, and drivers are available to every client to lighten any burden and minimize distractions while one focuses on healing. Each one of our staff members are dedicated to transforming lives by delivering confidential, effective, and compassionate care with integrity and accountability.
We provide separate quarters with the safety of 24/7 medical monitoring and intervention to allow the important first-step of detoxifying from alcohol and other substances to take place. Medication- assistance is available on a case-by-case basis to allow clients to overcome this often uncomfortable period so that they may fully immerse themselves in the drug and alcohol treatment process.
Our medical director, with over thirty years of experience as a practicing psychiatrist, is well-versed in all areas of psychiatry to allow effective dual-diagnosis treatment and management. This experience combines with his complimentary background in neurology, which gives unique advantages to helping these individuals. Previous literature has consistently found that those diagnosed with a substance abuse disorder are 4-5 times more likely to fit the criteria for other co-occurring mental disorders (Kessler et al., 2005). Since the causal relationship between co-occurring mental disorders is still under review, our treatment team finds it imperative to manage mental disorders that may contribute to one’s addiction.
Our team recognizes that a robust and individualized aftercare plan is essential for the maintenance of long-term sobriety. During every client’s time at Liberty House, they will work with our team to develop a comprehensive relapse prevention plan. Our program emphasizes practices that aim to enhance family interrelationships, as well as bolster outside social support systems, the use of alternative coping techniques, and positive mind-body-lifestyle changes that extend beyond their time at Liberty House so that the goal of long-term sobriety can be achieved.
Our Unique Therapies
The Liberty House Difference
Expert & Evidence-Based
Our In-Depth Treatment Services
Liberty House Recovery Center offers a range of clinical and holistic services to support every client on their journey of long-lasting recovery. Below is an overview of some of the services that we commonly utilize. Each evidence-based approach is specifically designed to encourage mind, body, and lifestyle healthy practices.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
CBT aims to modify maladaptive thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that may be contributing to unhealthy lifestyles and negatives states. This highly supported evidence-based treatment has been shown to be effective for the treatment of depression, anxiety, substance abuse disorders, and a variety of other mental health concerns. The goal of this approach is to equip clients with cognitive skills to help them overcome problems in the present and in the future.
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
This evidence-based approach focuses on four specific factors that may contribute to substance use and abuse: emotional regulation, distress tolerance, problem-solving skills, and mindfulness. There is a manual that accompanies this treatment that often involves various practical exercises and readings. DBT has been proven effective in the treatment of co-occuring disorders that involve mood regulation, trauma, and helps strengthen the practical skills necessary for sustained recovery.
Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Therapy
This practice, which includes mindful meditation, has been shown to reduce the effects of stress resulting in a wide range of benefits. It aims to strengthen feelings of self-compassion and enhance one’s sense of purpose and meaning. Practically, this approach is shown to improve the management of cravings and triggers, as well as strengthen one’s resilience to negative emotional states.
Acceptance-Commitment Therapy (ACT)
The belief behind ACT is that a more fulfilled life can be attained by overcoming negative thoughts and feelings. The goal of ACT is to help clients consistently choose to act effectively (concrete behaviors as defined by their values) in the presence of difficult or disruptive “private” (cognitive or psychological) events. The acronym ACT has also been used to describe what takes place in therapy: accept the effects of life’s hardships, choose directional values, and take action.
Family Systems Therapy (FST)
This approach aims to help individuals resolve problems in the context of their family units, where many issues are likely to begin. Each family member works together to better understand their group dynamic and how each individual’s actions influence the family unit as a whole. The premise behind FST is that what happens to one member of a family happens to everyone in the family.
