Lutheran Social Services of Wisconsin and Upper Michigan plans to open a facility in Waukesha offering addiction treatment next year, according to a Wednesday statement.
The 22-bed LSS Aspen Center will serve about 125 individuals from southeastern Wisconsin annually. It will fill a need in Waukesha county by offering affordable, medically monitored treatment for women seeking care.
“Being able to serve women inside of Waukesha County rather than sending them to surrounding areas for treatment is a win,” Paul Farrow, Waukesha County executive, said in a statement.
Lutheran Social Services of Wisconsin and Upper Michigan hopes to raise $1.7 million by the end of the year for the facility.It's already secured a $300,000 grant from Waukesha County. It needs about $500,000 to open treatment services at the start of next year.
