WCS is a provider of Wisconsin Supports Everyone´s Recovery Choice (WIser Choice) services. This programming provides individuals that need drug and alcohol treatment vouchers to pay for a range of appropriate community-based services. The Wiser Choice programming serves individuals that reside in Milwaukee County, are at least 18 years old, and do not have insurance. These strength based services are person centered with a team approach that is outcome oriented. The WCS programs included in this area are Access Point (AP) and the Recovery Support Coordination Unit (RSC).
WCS operates an Access Point unit that will screen individuals to help determine the AODA needs as well as the options available to best meet these needs. This program gives individuals the opportunity to not only deal substance use concerns, but also access to many other supportive services. The WCS Access Point unit is mobile. The Access Point screener can see individuals at the WCS office or we will travel to homes, correctional institutions, Department of Correction’s offices, and other locations that will meet the individual’s needs.
Recovery Support Coordination
The Recovery Support Coordination (RSC) Program provides Care Coordination services for adults with substance abuse and co-occurring mental health and substance abuse needs. With the support of a team, individuals create a Recovery Plan. We also provide Recovery Support Coordination services for a specialized group, Family Drug Treatment Court. Individuals interested in this program must be screened through Access Point, which can be done at the same location as our RSC program. Through the RSC program an individual will also have access to supportive services for employment, housing, transportation, medical treatment, and more.
