ABOUT SHEBOYGAN COUNTY WISCONSIN – MENTAL HEALTH & SUBSTANCE ABUSE TREATMENT CENTER
The Sheboygan County Mental Health & Substance Abuse Treatment Center in Wisconsin provides outpatient services for adult and adolescent county residents. These include crisis and standard assessments, an intensive outpatient program (IOP), and general outpatient counseling. The county also operates a long-term diversion and rehab drug court program.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
The center offers two types of assessment services. Crisis assessments help individuals or their families prepare for treatment in an acute facility, through drug screenings and psychiatric evaluations. An Intoxicated Driver Program assesses clients who have been referred by the court systems and is followed by referrals to continued treatment and case management.
Psychotherapy is available in individual, group, couple, and family sessions, addressing an array of issues, including drug and alcohol addiction and abuse.
The Drug Court program provides trauma-informed, individualized treatment plans built on moral reconation therapy (MRT). This approach incorporates cognitive behavioral therapy and drug testing in a program designed for clients in the criminal justice system. Clients can remain in the program for up to 24 months.
The treatment team includes board certified psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, and drug and alcohol counselors, according to the facility’s website.
