Treatment Settings

Meta House offers three unique treatment settings to provide a continuum of care that meets the needs of women at distinct times in their journeys through the recovery process.

Residential Treatment

Meta House was recognized by the federal government in 2005 as a facility uniquely equipped to help mothers in recovery and their children. Meta House provides 24/7 care and can house up to 43 women and 17 children. Children can stay with their mothers at this treatment setting and can also receive direct services, including play therapy and academic assistance.


Outpatient Treatment

If a woman doesn’t need the 24-hour structure of the Residential Treatment Program, the Outpatient Treatment Program is available. Our outpatient programs serve clients through a person centered treatment model. Services include counseling, life skills, education and vocational services, health education, nutrition, parenting, mental health and relapse prevention. Child care is also available on-site.


Meta Housing

We offer safe, family-friendly transitional and permanent housing for women who are in need of a supportive and affordable place to live and are ready for independent living. Eligibility requirements for admission to this treatment setting include: being successful in recovery; continuing with outpatient services; being certified as homeless; and paying at least 30% of their adjusted gross income as rent.

*Consumer Notice


This Agency receives funding from U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to provide services for homeless and near homeless individuals and their families. A requirement of  this funding is that the Agency participates in the Wisconsin Homeless Management Information System, which collects basic information about clients receiving services from this Agency. This requirement was enacted in order to get a more accurate count of individuals and families who are homeless and to identify the need for different services.

We only collect information that we consider to be appropriate. The collection and use of all personal information is guided by strict standards of confidentiality. A copy of our Privacy Notice describing our privacy practice is available to all consumers upon request. You do have the ability to share your personal information with other area agencies that participate in the network by completing a “Release of Information” form. This will allow those agencies to work in a cooperative manner to provide you with efficient and effective services.
