Located in Mequon,Wisconsin, The Huiras Center is a subsidiary of Columbia St. Mary’s, a Milwaukee-based behavioral health hospital. It offers outpatient treatment through The Adolescent Substance Abuse Program (ASAP), its teen-focused chemical dependency recovery program developed in conjunction with the Ralph Huiras foundation.
Treatment and Staff
All clients undergo an initial assessment before an individualized treatment plan is developed. Outpatient plans are generally a mix of individual and group therapy with family therapy frequently worked in as support for youth in recovery.
Due to the age demographic of the clientele, programs range from preventative care to intensive, depending on each unique situation. Dual diagnosis support is available as well for clients with a mental illness diagnosis. Treatment methods are evidence-based and include CBT and Motivational Interviewing (MI).
Columbia St. Mary’s offers a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), both of which are designed for clients to step down to the Huiras standard outpatient track.
Additionally, a brief inpatient hospitalization period is available for stabilization prior to enrollment in treatment when necessary. Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT) and detox are also available through Columbia St. Mary’s hospital.
The Huiras Center offers a standard outpatient substance abuse treatment program that is tailored for the specific needs of teens. Evidence-based methods are used and young people who may also have co-occurring mental health issues are treated by a professional and credentialed staff. As a branch of a comprehensive medical network through Columbia St. Mary’s, the Hurias Center is able to provide a wider range of services including detox and inpatient stabilization that smaller facilities may not be equipped to handle. While outpatient treatment is not always the best fit for severe cases of adolescent addiction, The Huiras Center is a good choice for troubled teens in the area.
