Alcohol and Drug Rehab Centers in Crandon, Wisconsin
Crandon, Wisconsin Alcohol And Drug Rehab Centers
Crandon is the county seat of Forest County, and is situated near the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest, far from any large cities. This rural location is home to many small towns, and not many addiction treatment facilities. There are, however, two alcohol and drug rehab centers that are easily accessible to Crandon residents.
Substance Abuse Problems In Crandon And Forest County
In January 2018, two people were arrested for supplying heroin that lead to a Crandon man’s overdose death. They were found to have cocaine, narcotic pills, and marijuana as well. Several more people from Crandon were arrested in February 2018 for manufacturing and selling cocaine and heroin.
After a traffic stop in Crandon in August 2018, a woman admitted to having 12 grams of heroin, 4 grams of crack cocaine, and 2 grams of marijuana concealed in her body. She and the woman with her were arrested for selling drugs on the Potawatomi reservation.
Sadly, these incidents show that even small towns are not immune to drug trafficking and substance abuse that has become such a problem across the country in recent years.

Traveling For The Best Program
There are plenty more options for addiction treatment in Wisconsin, but they require a bit of traveling. Some people prefer to travel for treatment; it gets them away from the environment where they started abusing drugs or alcohol in the first place.
Traveling also allows a person to weight their options and look at different rehab programs. It is important for someone to choose the best program for their needs. In fact, it could make the difference between relapse and lasting recovery.
Some people leave their hometown, or even their home state, to enroll in the treatment program that is right for them. Some only need a few hours of distance to embrace change in a new environment.
