Meta House Residential is one of the programs offered by Meta House, a non-profit organization that has provided substance abuse treatment and other services to women and their children since 1963. Located in the relatively large metropolis of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, clients are surrounded by numerous other resources to aid them during their recovery process.
Food and Accommodations
The accommodations are a large house-like setting. There are enough beds for 43 women and 17 children. There are large shared bathrooms and living rooms as well as a laundry facility, a dining room and a child care center. Meals are served three times a day and include healthy and kid-friendly options.
Treatment and Staff
The substance abuse treatment programs at Meta House are based on gender-responsive methodology; meaning that treatment is specialized towards the specific needs of women from a physical, social, cultural and psychological standpoint. The residential program is also based on a person-centered treatment model, meaning each client has an individualized treatment plan. All services offered by the residential program are based upon the individual’s need for them as decided by the counselor during the initial assessment.
Services offered include group counseling, individual counseling, life skills, educational and vocational services, health education, nutrition planning, parenting skills, mental health and relapse prevention, and child care services. The length of the program is different for everyone and may be subject to change depending on the individual progress of each client. The 12 steps are not included in the program but clients may be referred to local AA/NA chapters if requested.
In addition to the women’s inpatient program, Meta House also offers a variety of other resources to its clients and the community at large including mental health services, trauma treatment, case management, child and family services, vocational/educational services and a transitional care program.
Meta House Residential is an excellent program for women and mothers seeking comprehensive substance abuse treatment that can also accommodate young children. The wide range of therapeutic techniques and group topics, along with the gender-specific programming and an individualized treatment plan, all give clients the best possible chance for long-term sobriety and recovery.
