Our Programming

CW Solutions is honored to be an active service provider in Wisconsin. We utilize a family-systems, strength-based model in all of our programming. We are also a Trauma-Informed agency that practices trauma-informed care throughout our organization.
 

CW Solutions currently operates the following programs.

ADP

 The Adolescent Diversion Program (ADP)

The Adolescent Diversion Project (ADP) is our newest program, operated in partnership with Wood County Human Services Department with services begining in July 2020. The program serves youth ages 12 - 17 who are at risk, or already involved with youth justice. In this 18-week program, case managers help youth work on a behavior plan, connect to local community resources and build positive life skills.  Our primary goal for ADP is to decrease the number of youth who enter the court system by providing direct prevention and wrap-around services and increased collaboration with our local schools and law enforcement, pairing at-risk youth with a youth case manager and increasing access to needed services such as mental health and AODA. VIsit our ADP page for more information.

 The LEO Program through the Brighter Futures Initiative (BFI)

Locations: Wood County and Adams County

Since 2019, we have operated the BFI Substance Use Prevention program in Wood County in partnership with Wood County Human Services Department. Begining in 2021, we added a second BFI program in partnership with Adams County Health & Human Servicsed Department.

Research has shown that there is a reduced risk of substance use in youth who have well developed resiliency skills. Our program is based upon the Life Ecology Organization's work. Our 8-session program, Learn and Empower Oneself (LEO) empowers youth with practical tools to understand their brains and quickly improve resilience, adaptability, and fearlessness in a rapidly changing, stressful world.

All youth age 14 - 20 who live or attend school in Wood County are eligible to engage in these services. In Adams County, we serve the same population set plus a small group of middle-schoolers age 12 - 14. To learn more about our program, visit our LEO page.
