Meta House
Milwaukee, WI

Meta House helps women struggling with drug and alcohol addiction reclaim their lives and rebuild their families. Its model program meets the unique needs of women and their children, ending the generational cycle of substance abuse.

Meta House is an internationally-recognized drug and alcohol abuse treatment program for women, and has been providing long-term, gender-responsive treatment since 1963. Meta House services help women not only stop using alcohol and drugs, but assist them in tackling a host of other barriers such as poverty, unemployment, homelessness and/or unsafe housing, parenting, poor physical health, mental health disorders, and past physical, emotional and sexual abuse.

Knowing that the women served at Meta House want to be good mothers, in 1988 our facility became one of the first in the nation to include children in the residential treatment setting. By including children, Meta House is able to provide comprehensive services to counteract the affects of maternal substance use and to break the cycle of addiction.

Meta House programs include: a residential treatment program housing up to 43 women and 17 children and offering them 24-hour care, 7 days a week; outpatient treatment services for women able to maintain sobriety while remaining in their own homes; Meta Housing – transitional and permanent housing for families headed by recovering women in need of a safe and affordable place to live, while still benefitting from supportive services.

Meta House is a 501(c)3 organization.
