Addiction Treatment Outpatient Services

ARC outpatient programs provide women-responsive, family-focused, culturally competent and trauma-informed care to women with substance use and co-occurring disorders in Dane County and surrounding counties. Programming is comprehensive and based on best practices and current research, with a specific focus on pregnant and post-partum women and their children. Each woman creates her own unique treatment plan and determines who will be involved in her care.

ARC staff conduct an assessment to assist women in determining the appropriate level of treatment. Please call 608-283-6426 to learn more about assessments or to make an appointment.

"ARC continues to save the lives of many women and children. So much is offered here. It’s what you want to do about your problems and how they can help."
