Some people may only see a psychiatric prescriber occasionally for medication management; others may attend weekly individual and group therapy. Our enhanced therapy services are offered in both the office and the community. Throughout our agency-wide continuum of care, you can count on evidence-based therapy that is consumer-focused, quality-driven, trauma-informed and culturally-specific.

 Individual Therapy For Adults

Individual therapy is a process by which a person’s thoughts, feelings and behaviors are clinically explored by the individual and by a trained therapist. Psychiatry and medication management services may also be offered for individuals who struggle to maintain psychiatric stability in the community.

We help individuals with mental and behavioral health concerns, such as:

  • Alcohol/Substance Use
  • Anxiety
  • Adult Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Trauma
  • Depression
  • Dissociative Disorders
  • Eating Disorders
  • Mood Disorders
  • Obsessive/Compulsive Disorder
  • Panic Attacks
  • Postpartum Depression
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Schizophrenia
  • Seasonal Affective Disorder
  • Social Anxiety

Individual therapy is an effective treatment method, especially when used in conjunction with group therapy and other healthy lifestyle changes.

For Individuals And Families With Mental Health And Substance Use Challenges

Studies suggest that group therapy is a very effective approach to improving one’s overall quality of life. Hearing how others cope with their challenges can offer great insight into solving one’s own. They are an important part of your treatment at Journey.

Benefits Of Group Therapy

  • Due to the nature of the group experience, individuals and families may find groups to be even more beneficial than individualized therapy sessions.
  • Groups offer a safe environment in which one can develop a skill or improve the quality of interpersonal relationships.
  • Diversity is another important benefit of group therapy. People have different personalities and backgrounds, and they look at situations in different ways. By seeing how other people tackle problems and make positive changes, you can discover a whole range of strategies for facing your own concerns.
  • Journey offers a variety of groups to assist individuals with their day-to-day challenges. All groups are guided by knowledgeable staff who are concerned about the growth of each group member.

What Should I Know About Group Therapy?

  • Group therapy involves one or more therapists who lead a group of roughly five to 15 consumers. It is evidenced based.
  • Typically, groups meet for an hour or two each week. Some people attend individual or family therapy in addition to groups, while others participate in groups only.
  • Many groups are designed to target a specific problem, such as depression, obesity, trauma social anxiety, or substance use. Other groups focus more generally on improving social skills, helping people deal with a range of issues such as anger, shyness, loneliness and low self-esteem.

If you have been convicted of Operating While Intoxicated (O.W.I.) while operating a vehicle, motorcycle, or boat, chances are you have been court-ordered to receive an assessment.

You may be facing potentially serious consequences and this can feel overwhelming and stressful. Knowing how our process works may help relieve some of this anxiety. 

What Are Your First Steps?

Determine where you need to schedule your assessment:

  • If you are a resident of Dane County, WI,  contact Journey’s Clinical Assessment Unit to set up an appointment for an assessment.  There are two ways to do this:

 

At your appointment, you will complete a substance use history, an alcohol and drug questionnaire, and a mental health assessment. Your appointment will last approximately 45-90 minutes depending on the details of your case and circumstances. During this time, we will further explore the context of your alcohol and drug use, as well as the impact it is having on your life. Based on what is learned, recommendations will be made for follow-up education and/or treatment as part of your driver safety plan to address any concerns related to your alcohol and/or drug use.

  • If you are NOT a resident of Dane County, WI, but instead a resident of a different Wisconsin county, you must be assessed in the county in which you reside in. For a list of assessment facilities in Wisconsin by county, go to https://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/idp/directory.htm
  • If you received a DUI (Driving Under the Influence) in Illinois, you must be assessed in Illinois. Please contact the Illinois Division of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse general number at 312-814-3840.
  • For out of state residents, please contact the Department of Transportation for your state and ask for the assessment facility for your county.

The Alternative Sanctions Program provides initial screening, assessment, and referrals to appropriate treatment for individuals in jail diversion programs of three Dane County Treatment Courts:

  • OWI Treatment Court for repeat intoxicated drivers.
  • Drug Treatment Court for high-risk individuals charged with a drug-driven felony offense.
  • Drug Diversion Court monitors for medium-risk individuals charged with a drug-driven felony offense, driven by drugs. The felonies are non-violent and did not involve weapons.

Initiating Services

  • All consumers in Alternative Sanctions are court-ordered and each Treatment Court has different expectations.
  • Your screening will be completed by a professional clinician.

Success

  • Seventy percent of individuals arrested for the first time on drug charges do not re-offend if they successfully complete a Drug Diversion Court program. That’s 15 percent better than the national average.
  • The Drug Court Diversion Program alone saved 9,973 days of incarceration and, as a result, $1.2 million in jail costs in 2015.
