Our Approach to Treatment

Each person’s recovery is unique to their situation, and each person deserves a safe, sober, and supportive environment so they may recovery effectively. Lakeside Recovery offers residential environment that allows individuals to receive medically monitored treatment needed for their recovery.

Treatment programs include a multi-disciplinary approach to recovery including techniques such as:

  • Group Therapy
  • Individual Therapy
  • Substance Abuse Education (Alcohol and Other Drugs)
  • Co-Occurring Mental Health and Substance Abuse Education
  • Art Therapy
  • Introduction to Community-Based Recovery Groups

Referral for Care

Participants may be referred to Lakeside Recovery from a physician, therapist, or self-referral. During the initial assessment process, all participants discuss desired changes they would like to make in their life and throughout recovery.

The first step in recovery is cleansing the body of substances through detoxification. This process may take place at a North Central Health Care detoxification program on the Wausau Campus, or a primary care or general hospital.

For more information, questions, referrals, assessments and admissions, please contact the Lakeside Recovery Referral Coordinator, Monday - Friday, 10am - 4pm: 715.848.4483.
