Teens and Over-the-Counter Drugs: A Dangerous Combo

sunsetLiving with a substance abuse problem or other mental health concern can leave you feeling isolated and afraid.


Calling someone for help can be frightening and make you feel overwhelmed. You are not alone. Every day, thousands of people get help and improve the quality of their life or the life of a loved one.


The UW Health Behavioral Health and Recovery Clinic is here to help.


Continuing the UW Health tradition of excellence, we provide quality care that is sensitive, compassionate and confidential.


Getting Started


We offer a comprehensive array of services designed to help you and your family begin the journey of recovery from chemical dependency and mental illness. Services are individualized to meet your unique needs, and encourage family involvement. We focus and build on the strengths and resilience of you, your family and the community.


All of our services begin with a confidential assessment designed to explore and understand the nature of your concerns and recommend the best course of treatment. Culturally informed and sensitive practice is at the core of all of our services. Recognizing and valuing differences is crucial to providing services that ensure the success of all people.


Programs and Services


Our adult and adolescent programs and services include the following:

  • The intensive outpatient program is designed to provide an intense level of care that successfully interrupts the addictive process and introduces you to recovery. A morning and evening track is offered to provide maximum access.


  • Less intensive group and individual counseling services


  • Gender-specific problem focus groups


  • Services for women are provided by therapists with extensive experience in addressing the needs and issues faced by women in treatment and recovery


  • Services for those new to treatment and recovery are ultimately rewarding but can be challenging and frightening in the beginning. The early recovery groups allow you to explore your substance use in a non-threatening and supportive environment.


  • Adolescent services include a comprehensive assessment that encourages the participation of the adolescent's parent or caregiver. Education groups provide information about substance use and recovery for young people. Additional separate groups for boys and girls allow them to explore their specific needs and the challenges they face.


  • Other groups and services include relapse prevention groups, groups for court-involved individuals including OWI, ongoing recovery groups, urine drug screens and the coordination of care not provided by the UW Health Behavioral Health and Recovery Clinic

  • After-care services for patients who have completed primary treatment or a higher level of care


  • 24-hour on call crisis and emergency services
