Traveling For Treatment
The high rate of drug trafficking in Sturgeon Bay in recent years may lead some people to leave town for treatment. It can be challenging to remain substance-free when living in a place where drugs are readily available. Also, Sturgeon Bay only has outpatient alcohol and drug rehab centers, and traveling for treatment opens the opportunity for someone to receive inpatient care.
A residential treatment program is beneficial for many people because it immerses them in a therapeutic community. It provides constant support and monitoring, which makes it difficult to relapse during treatment. It also allows a person the time and space they need to build a strong foundation in recovery before returning to home life.
