Adolescents often use substances to temporarily decrease the stress or anxiety associated with an underlying mental health issue. We understand how concerning this can be, and our team at Rogers can help.
Through our Mental Health and Addiction Recovery residential care for 12 to 17-year-olds, we treat the mental health disorder and the use of alcohol, drugs or opioids. Studies show it’s most effective to treat both at the same time.

This residential level of care provides an in-depth treatment option when more intensive care is needed. In a home-like setting at our West Allis location, a typical stay is 30 to 60 days.
Patients receive comprehensive, evidence-based care with our focus on treatment for the following co-occurring disorders:
Our multidisciplinary team led by a board-certified child and adolescent psychiatrist and addiction medicine specialist, brings expertise in both mental health and addiction to our therapeutic approach to recovery. Patients have regular contact with a psychiatrist and psychologist, in addition to ongoing work with dedicated therapists and counselors.
At the core of this program is cognitive behavioral therapy to help identify challenges and develop coping skills. In addition, patients engage in behavioral activation, practice mindfulness and build other dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) skills. For addiction, this includes DBT skills that can help alleviate physical discomfort, diminish urges, and increase healthy behaviors. Motivational interviewing and substance use disorder counseling also help effect change.
With an integrated approach to care for co-occurring mental health and addiction, residents will find a variety of groups and activities within the day, all meant to support healthy change. Here’s what a typical day looks like.

Group check-in and skills review

Schedules include designated time throughout the week for school work, allowing residents to keep up with academic assignments as much as possible during their treatment stay. Time for personal activity, family visits, and phone calls are also accommodated.
Family sessions are generally held once a week, and help everyone focus on the family’s communication patterns, value and belief systems, roles and expectations as they relate to the child’s treatment.
Our multidisciplinary team of professionals creates an individualized treatment plan that addresses each patient's needs.
“Because of this care, I have decided to make a change. I no longer feel the need to use drugs/substances to cover up my problems. This is one of the best things I have done with my life.
