In addition to helping them recover, the patient attends regular therapy sessions and detox and participates in other therapies. However, this is all primarily done from home. As a follow-up to inpatient treatment, outpatient treatment is usually recommended.

    After rehabilitation, it helps people return to their everyday lives. It may also be an alternative to inpatient care in some situations. If they cannot leave their jobs, children, or don’t have the money for inpatient care, people can choose this method.

It’s a supervised environment in Milwaukee, WI managed by Wisconsin Community Services, which is guaranteed safe and free from addictive substances.

    Residential treatment programs are those that offer housing and meals in addition to substance abuse treatment.

Some rehab centers specialize in short-term residential treatment (a few days to a week or two), while others solely provide treatment on a long-term basis (several weeks to months). Some offer both, and tailor treatment to the patient’s individual requirements.

    Aftercare Support at Wisconsin Community Services, in short, is the support provided to a patient after they have finished treatment. It allows them to adjust to everyday life.

    Wisconsin Community Services‘s Therapies & Programs

    Addiction in Milwaukee, Wisconsin can occur due to a wide variety of reasons. Understanding your addiction and the best methods for maintaining sobriety involves learning about yourself. Wisconsin Community Services treatment programs include individual therapy for the greatest chances of success.

    Customized individual therapy is counseling involving you and your counselor at Wisconsin Community Services. This builds a personal and trusting relationship so you can truly be yourself and express any emotions as you feel them. Individual therapy leads to greater peace and understanding about your triggers for addiction and coping strategies to prevent relapse.

    Substance abuse does a number on an individual’s relationship with other people, particularly in marriage. Spousal relationships bear the brunt of alcohol and drug dependence. Therefore, it becomes critical to submit the relationship to couples therapy to prevent straining it further. Most programs only zero in on the individual with substance addiction without factoring in the importance of the other half’s emotional support.

    However, some facilities, like Wisconsin Community Services in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, offer couples therapy options to manage intimate partnerships amid the recovery process. Other couples-focused treatment plans can provide the patient and their partner tools to get things back to normal, support each other, and the patient’s sobriety.
    Addiction is a family disease. Family therapy aims to heal and rebalance unhealthy roles and habits. Healing any family trauma and dysfunctional communications is important, and Wisconsin Community Services understands this. Family sessions are meant to bring Wisconsin families closer together and live sober, healthy, lives.

    Group Therapy is a type of counseling that occurs between a bunch of strangers. These groups are suitable for patients who are not confined in a treatment facility, but group sessions are also common in inpatient rehab programs. Group therapy is led by a trained individual at Wisconsin Community Services in Milwaukee, WI and consists of members from different stages of recovery.

    The goal of group therapy sessions is to foster hope and a sense of belonging, share information, and learn coping mechanisms. It also helps to have people who can relate to what you’re going through. Good behaviors can also be contagious, and participants can learn from one another.

    Unresolved trauma is often a key reason why many patients resorted to substance abuse. Trauma could be physical abuse, sexual abuse, war, natural disasters, divorce, accident, loss of a loved one, etc. If trauma is the primary cause of substance abuse, then both issues must be addressed.

    Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is an approach and method in psychotherapy. Wisconsin Community Services asks people to investigate how their thoughts, including habitual, negative, and inaccurate ways of thinking affect behaviors. CBT is based on the idea that rigid, inflexible ways of thinking cause people to have a limited ability to cope with stress

    In the midst of an addiction certain healthy habits and behaviors can be forgotten or discarded altogether. While in treatment you will learn life skills that will help you successfully maintain sobriety in Wisconsin.

    Patient Experience

    Creative Arts

    It is believed that enhancing creativity and developing skills related to it can help people with addiction recover faster. Activities such as painting, writing, acting, and dancing are considered therapeutic as they become outlets for patients to blow off steam, channel their emotions, and express their thoughts. Some people in recovery find it difficult to do so, especially when they suffer from co-occurring disorders such as depression.

    Creative arts therapy at Wisconsin Community Services in Milwaukee, WI heals these individuals and teaches them to express themselves more meaningfully. With this type of treatment, the process matters a lot more than the final output because it’s more important for therapists and counselors to see how a patient frees himself or herself up for expression.

    Fitness Therapy

    Exercise is a great way to boost mental and physical health. Addicts are encouraged to engage in fitness therapy provided by Wisconsin Community Services to help their body recover from the harms of addiction. It also improves mood and serves as a distraction making them less likely to use.
