Your team

HRC Exterior - 133x200- 6-24-14Our specialists in addiction medicine work with a strong multidisciplinary team with masters-prepared therapists for group, individual and family therapy. The team also includes experiential therapists, behavioral specialists, registered nurses and more.

Through regular team interaction, each person is apprised of patient progress on their individualized treatment plan. If needed, our addiction services team can easily consult with Rogers Behavioral Health’s psychiatric experts in various disciplines to address ongoing or emerging medical concerns.

Our approach

At Rogers, we use an evidence-based, multi-modal treatment approach, incorporating the principles of the 12-step recovery program as a guiding framework. After conducting a thorough evaluation to assess the history and severity of your addiction and related factors, treatment is built around three phases:

Lounge - 200x159 - 6-24-14

  • Recognizing the features and consequences of addiction and understanding the necessity of abstinence from mood-altering chemicals
  • Learning how to replace self-destructive patterns with healthier thoughts and behaviors
  • Learning to identify relapse warning signs and establishing effective coping strategies.

In addition to 12-step facilitation, treatment at Rogers includes experiential therapy;
cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT); motivational enhancement therapy; and individual, group and family therapy. In our dual diagnosis track, patients work 15 hours per week on anxiety, depression, OCD or PTSD issues with highly trained behavioral specialists.Throughout treatment, all patients attend community-based support group meetings held on and off campus six days a week. Support groups include:

  • Alcoholics Anonymous
  • Heroin Anonymous
  • Narcotics Anonymous
  • Other community-based support groups as appropriate

Patients are expected to acquire a temporary sponsor from their support groups while in treatment at Herrington.

Why Rogers?

The Herrington Recovery Center is on the scenic, 50-acre wooded campus of Rogers Behavioral Health in Wisconsin’s lake country. Rogers’ residential treatment for addiction not only provides expert care and access to specialists across the behavioral health continuum; we also have outcomes that demonstrate the kind of improvement patients look for.

Bedroom - 200x133 - 6-24-14Outcomes studies using the work and social adjustment scale to measure functional impairment (WSAS) and the quick inventory of depressive symptomatology (QIDS) have shown decreases in functional impairment among patients surveyed.

For those diagnosed with depression, the QIDS score dropped from severe to mild. Twelve months later, a follow-up survey showed residents continued to improve and that results were sustained.

Additional services

Rogers’ addiction services also include inpatient withdrawal management, intensive outpatient programs, including a specific opiate young adult program, as well as a dual diagnosis partial hospital. Medication-assisted treatment is available as a follow-up to the intensive outpatient program in several community locations.

Rogers Memorial Hospital is a key corporation of Rogers Behavioral Health System, which also includes:

Library - 200x150 - 6-24-14
