Where To Start

Reaching out for help is not always easy to do.

Things usually don’t get better until you know what is wrong.


I think I may have a problem, how do I know?

Alcohol and drug addiction is more than just a bad habit . Substance use disorders are diagnosable diseases that often times require lifetime management, similar to chronic diseases like diabetes or high blood pressure. People experience physical, emotional, and social symptoms. You may find yourself doing things you wouldn’t usually do, like lying, missing work, losing control, irrational thinking, and continued use despite negative consequences of use. You may have told yourself you can quit any time, but somehow you end up using again. You don’t need to “lose it all” or “hit rock bottom” before you get help.

Mental health concerns are also treatable. There are many mental health disorders that you may be struggling with - along with addiction or with no alcohol or drug use issues. Some common mental health disorders are depression, anxiety, bi-polar, and post traumatic stress disorder. Sometimes we may not know exactly is wrong, but that something just isn’t right about the way you feel. On this page are some links to common mental health disorders for more information.


What do I do?

Reach out for help. Things can get better. Mental health and substance use disorders can be properly diagnosed and treatment is effective. It starts with seeing a professional to complete an assessment. The first step is to give us a call. 715-235-4537.



Preparing for treatment - what you can expect.

After completing an assessment, your clinician will give you recommendations for what treatment may best fit your needs. Getting ready to start treatment can feel uncomfortable because of the unknown.



What happens during treatment?

Your treatment experience will depend on both the care and treatment services you receive, as well as the work you are willing to put into accomplishing your treatment goals.



Early Recovery

Early recovery is most commonly defined as the first 90 days of a person’s recovery journey. This is a difficult time as you will be facing the world needing different and new coping skills. You may feel various emotions - some of which are uncomfortable. Often times, you will need to learn how to “feel” again. The hard work during this period is worth it. Keep going!



What happens if I relapse?

Relapses can occur when managing a chronic disease. If a relapse occurs, it is important to reach out to your recovery support system. Many times, it also means that re-engaging in treatment can help bring you back to what was working when your mental health or substance use disorder was in remission.



Giving Back

Staying connected to others and supporting the recovery journey of others is important. There are many ways to give back. Choose which is right for you and make a difference in someone else’s life.
