WCS is a provider of Wisconsin Supports Everyone´s Recovery Choice (WIser Choice) services. Programming provides people seeking drug and alcohol treatment with vouchers to pay for a range of appropriate community-based services. WCS programs include the Central Intake Unit (CIU) and the Recovery Support Coordination Unit (RSC).
WCS Central Intake Unit
WCS operates the central intake unit to screen and admit people into AODA treatment in Milwaukee County. The Central Intake Unit is mobile and can travel to correctional institutions and other sites to meet clients.
WCS Recovery Support Coordination Unit
The program provides wraparound type services that help to address all issues a person is facing instead of trying to treat the alcohol or drug problem in isolation. A recovery support coordinator creates a plan that provides referrals to and coordination of services for people involved in AODA treatment.
Prisoner Reintegration Program (PRP)
The PRP provides pre- and post-release services for individuals returning to the City of Milwaukee after a period of confinement in the Milwaukee County House of Corrections. Before release, participants work with staff to identify their needs and develop an effective release plan. Upon release, participants meet with their assigned Mentor on a weekly basis to ensure that the participant's post-release needs are being addressed. Whenever possible, participants are connected with services that are available in the community and Wiser Choice Network.
