Inpatient Treatment

LSS offers residential and crisis services, available through a county referral, to assist individuals who are experiencing a substance use disorder, and who are in need of recovery support.

Residential inpatient addiction treatment

We provide primary inpatient treatment for those in need of more intense services and a residential setting in their early stage of recovery. Our counselors help clients improve their lives using evidence-based practices including cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing techniques, trauma-informed care, social learning theory and gender-specific services. We offer residential addiction services in Southeastern and Northwestern Wisconsin communities to serve as a bridge for recovery, returning to work and reconnecting with family.

Addiction treatment therapies matched to individual needs

Primary residential treatment programs are generally 21 days in length. Professional staff engage participants in a variety of activities, including multiple group sessions each day, individual therapy sessions, family services, educational sessions and specialty services. The treatment programs focus on each individual and address his or her addictive processes. The goal of each program is to explore a wide variety of strategies to help people find their own pathway to recovery. Our core treatment philosophy is based on a partnership with the individuals we serve who are seeking recovery from addiction.

LSS Aspen Center

LSS Aspen Center is the first medically monitored community-based residential care (CBRF) facility in Waukesha County offering affordable comprehensive addiction treatment for both women and men. Building on 40 years of experience treating men in Waukesha County, this is the 17th LSS substance use treatment center in Wisconsin.

The 23,000-square-foot LSS Aspen Center, located at 2000 W. Bluemound Road, provides medically-monitored substance use disorder rehabilitation and therapeutic services for men and women in two gender-specific wings.  The center anticipates serving about 125 individuals from Waukesha County and southeastern Wisconsin annually, and has capacity to grow to 34 beds based on need.

It’s designed to fill a growing need for affordable, high-quality addiction treatment services in Waukesha County, particularly for women, who have been referred outside the county due to a lack of options, LSS said.
