ABOUT OPTIONS COUNSELING SERVICES, LLC – KOINONIA RESIDENTIAL TREATMENT CENTER

Koinonia means "Fellowship Around a Common Goal” in Greek, and that philosophy is central to the Koinonia Residential Treatment Center in northern Wisconsin. Koinonia, a division of Options Counseling Services, has been providing drug and alcohol treatment since 1974. All programming is residential and appropriate for those with co-occurring mental health disorders.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Koinonia’s approach combines 12-step methodologies and evidence-based treatment, and the facility’s website emphasizes that care is tailored to the individual. The treatment program can help clients with a co-occurring mental illness, including depression, anxiety or posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

During their stay, clients participate in a mix of individual, group, and family therapy. Other treatment components include life skills training, gender-specific groups and spirituality groups. On-site alcoholics anonymous (AA) and narcotics anonymous (NA) meetings are available on a weekly basis. Some treatment options may include dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) and cognitive behavior therapy (CBT).

Following treatment, Koinonia’s clients are aligned with outpatient aftercare providers in their home communities.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

According to the facility’s website, Koinonia employs a 24-hour staff that includes dually credentialed clinicians, physicians, case managers, and counselors.

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

Koinonia’s campus is situated on 10 naturally wooded acres in Rhinelander, Wis. It can accommodate 35 clients at a time. New clients are asked to bring 30 days of prescription medication to hand to the facility. Rehabs.com survey respondents provided mostly four and five-star ratings for accommodations.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

The three alumni who submitted reviews to Rehabs.com at the time of this writing were mixed. While one alum gave five out of five stars for treatment effectiveness, meals and nutrition, family participation, and the use of the 12-Steps, and the second respondent gave their experience four stars and simply described the rehab as a “great place,” the other cited “low quality, impersonal, belittling treatment program.”

On Facebook, the facility earned five out of five stars from six reviews to date.[1] Many alumni praised the staff and credit the staff members and this treatment program with their sobriety. Alum Amy wrote: “Would recommend to anyone needing help!” Alum Brian wrote: “As a client I experienced an awesome program. I am honored to have been with such great people.”

On Google, the facility also has mixed feedback, with two five-star reviews and a one-star review.[2]

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

Four loved ones submitted feedback to Rehabs.com at the time of this writing. Their feedback also indicated a high level of satisfaction, giving four out of five stars or higher for counseling options, family participation and the facility’s cleanliness.

Laura, who participated in the Sunday family lunch and family counseling, gave five out of five stars for treatment, cleanliness, family involvement, and leadership. She said her son had “completely stopped using alcohol.” Dan, another parent, was pleased with the center’s approach to counseling and education. He told Rehabs.com: “At Koinonia they give the needed one on one counseling and coping skills needed to beat this disease. They also provide interactions through group meetings to help one another share similar experiences.” From these sessions, he claimed that clients “are able to see from another perspective just how their behavior affected family and friends.”

FINANCING

Treatment costs $4,950 per month. The facility does indicate that it accepts many different types of health insurance.
