Alcohol And Drug Abuse In Neillsville And Clark County

Alcohol abuse is the fourth leading cause of death in Wisconsin, according to research by the Healthiest Wisconsin initiative. The number of adults that drink heavily in Clark County is even higher than the state average.

Alcohol is not the only problem in Neillsville and Clark County. There were at least three significant drug-related arrests in the area in 2018:

  • Two people were charged in May for selling heroin, maintaining a drug house, and neglecting three children that lived with them in Colby. The youngest child, a two-year-old, tested positive for cocaine.
  • A man and woman were arrested during a traffic stop in Clark County in March for possession of 38.5 g of crystal methamphetamine with intent to deliver.
  • A methamphetamine lab was found in the basement of a home in Granton in October.

A notable contributor to this issue may be the lack of mental health service providers in Clark County. The ratio of residents to providers is 11,478 to one—quite a bit higher than the state average of 1,024 to one. This shortage prevents many people from receiving or even seeking the care that they need in Neillsville and Clark County.

Traveling For A Treatment Program

Though there are a few alcohol and drug rehab centers near Neillsville, the limited access to care in Clark County may cause residents to look elsewhere for treatment. Traveling for a treatment program is not always necessary, but is often beneficial.

Comparing treatment programs outside of the Clark County area allows a person to evaluate differences in quality, level of care, treatment types, and facility environments. This helps them to make an educated decision on which alcohol and drug rehab center fits their needs.

Traveling for treatment also transports someone to a new environment, which may make it easier for them to focus on recovery.
