Located in Madison, Wis., Teresa McGovern Center offers residential treatment, intensive outpatient programs (IOP), outpatient programs, medically monitored detox, and aftercare to people struggling with addiction.


According to Teresa McGovern Center's website, residents work with counselors to create individualized treatment plans that are based on each clients' needs. During residential programs, the treatment team utilizes a number of approaches, such as cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectic behavioral therapy, 12-step programs, smart recovery, expressive arts, and family therapy.

Clients in IOP meet four hours a day, four days a week. Treatment plans can be developed specifically for clients who are employed, so individuals are able to continue working during treatment. Programming in this program is similar to residential treatment.

The outpatient program is the least restrictive level of treatment at the Teresa McGovern Center. The length of treatment depends on each client, and is based on an initial assessment. During the evaluation, individuals are assigned to group and individual sessions. Groups available include relapse prevention group and early recovery groups. There are also special group designed for women and teens.
