KOINONIA’s primary addictions treatment program is designed around the needs of each individual. The KOINONIA Program is based on evidence-based practices with individual treatment planning. Treatment is accomplished through a structured daily regiment that includes:
- Individual and Group Therapy
- Addiction and Living Skills Training
- Special Interest Group Meetings:
- Native American Traditions
- Anger Reduction
- Women’s & Men’s Issues
- Relapse Prevention
- Narcotics & Alcoholics Anonymous / 12-Step Philosophy
KOINONIA uses a multi-disciplinary approach to rehabilitative care. We draw from a wide range of community professionals with specialized skills in areas such as spirituality, health care, nutrition, HIV/AIDS prevention, sexual abuse and domestic abuse prevention and recovery, anger management, and building healthy relationships. The Staff of KOINONIA prides itself on being experienced and professional, yet caring and approachable. Our 24-hour coverage is enhanced by a House Staff that is skilled in day-to-day client management and services and is knowledgeable of recovery principles and practices. Dedication to the success of the individual client is the common goal of the entire KOINONIA team.
Group ActivitiesKOINONIA offers a variety of group activities for our clients including volleyball, campfires, serenity walks, horseshoes, sweat lodges, art therapy and more. Also, in accommodating weather, groups can be held outdoors. We incorporate the best of the Northwoods nature experience into our recovery program.
Social Setting DetoxificationPeople who require non-medical detoxification can be admitted for around-the-clock monitoring and treatment until they are stabilized.
Women’s Outreach ProgramKOINONIA, in conjunction with the Tri- County Women’s Outreach Project, has developed a collaborative service system for women in Forest, Oneida and Vilas counties. This community outreach program uses an innovative wraparound service approach to enhance the long-term success of the treatment program for tri-county female clients of KOINONIA.
Native American ProgramThis program offers culturally-specific services and staff for Native American clients. These services are integrated into the mainstream activities of the local tribal communities where followup care is provided for those tribal members. The main focus of this integration is always the continued successful abstinence by clients upon return to their own tribal community.
Family ProgramKOINONIA offers weekly family group sessions where communication, education, and healing are the focus. Family members are also involved through topic-related conferences and individual counseling sessions.
Natural Program SettingFor all of our programs, our natural setting plays an important part in the recovery process.
