Wisconsin Long-Term Treatment

We believe that long-term rehab is the most effective approach for a person looking to overcome their addiction. Here are some of the reasons why we believe this to be true:

  • Clients have the chance to build and establish lifelong relationships during treatment, which can be beneficial to their sobriety.
  • Family counseling can address the family dynamic, which can help mend and repair broken bonds.
  • The facilities are often situated in remote locations, where clients are free from distractions and can focus solely on their recovery.
  • The length of treatment offers multiple treatment methodologies to be incorporated.

Getting Help With Substance Use: The Basics

Addicted.org’s Evaluation of Wisconsin Drug Rehabs

In Wisconsin, there are numerous substance use treatment options, including outpatient, residential, and detox. Most programs are outpatient, yet numerous residential and detoxification centers exist. Our experts advise contacting multiple facilities and comparing the pros and cons with outpatient and residential facilities. Residential treatment remains the better option. It is also a good idea to contact programs about availability and wait lists.

Regarding finances, the bulk of programs accepts Medicaid or private health insurance. Slightly over half of the programs take state-financed health insurance plans other than Medicaid. However, less than half of the options provide a sliding fee scale for clients or treatment at no charge or minimal payment for clients who cannot pay. We recommend contacting the programs being considered and asking about payment options. In addition, contact your local Medicaid office or health insurance provider and find out precisely what is covered through insurance.

Ask a Professional

  • What is the cost of drug and alcohol rehabilitation in Wisconsin?

    Generally, the cost of drug and alcohol rehabilitation is based on the type of service and may include some of the following:

    • The average cost of inpatient drug rehab in Wisconsin is $56,600 but this changes, especially with health insurance.
    • The cost of outpatient drug rehab in Wisconsin begins at $1700. Yet, this can also increase depending on how long a person stays at the programs and how many days a week they attend.
    • Drug and alcohol detox, including medical detox, can cost between $200 and $1000 daily.
    • Low-cost and free drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs are available in Wisconsin.
  • What is the average time it takes to treat drug and alcohol addiction at a Wisconsin drug rehab?

    The time it takes to treat addiction is different for each person and is generally based on addiction severity.

    • The average length of stay at a drug or alcohol detox program in Wisconsin is seven days.
    • The average length of stay at an inpatient drug rehab program is 28 to 60 days. At the same time, residential programs can last three to 12 months.
    • The average time spent attending an outpatient drug rehab program in Wisconsin is 12 to 18 weeks.
  • What are the most commonly abused drugs in Wisconsin?

    According to local treatment admissions, the most commonly used substances in Wisconsin are heroin and alcohol.

    If you begin to notice a loved one exhibiting signs of alcoholism or heroin addiction, it is critical to intervene. The combination of heroin and alcohol increases the risk of overdose. Alcohol is commonly used with other drugs.

More Information

Michael Leach is a Certified Clinical Medical Assistant, who has over 5 years of experience working in the field of addiction. He spent his career working under the board-certified Addictionologist Dr. Rohit Adi. His experience includes working with families during their loved one’s stay in treatment, helping those with substance abuse issues find treatment, and teaching life skills to patients in a recovery atmosphere. Though he has worked in many different areas of rehabilitation, the majority of his time was spent working one on one with patients who were actively withdrawing from drugs. Withdrawal and the fear of going through it is one biggest reason why an addict continues to use and can be the most difficult part of the rehabilitation process. His experience in the withdrawal atmosphere has taught him that regardless of what approach a person takes to get off drugs, there are always mental and emotional obstacles that need to be overcome. He believes having someone there to help a person through these obstacles can make all the difference during the withdrawal process.
