Wisconsin has about 265 rehab programs throughout the state that provide substance abuse treatment services to well over 20,000 people at a time – a number that has been steadily growing over the years. Unfortunately, Wisconsin has one of the absolute lowest percentage of patients receiving inpatient care, with as much as 95% enrolled in some type of outpatient services instead.

While there is definitely a time and a place for outpatient care, the majority of addiction and recovery experts agree that residential treatment is more effective at helping people to solve their substance abuse issues since they can be addressed in a more controlled environment.
