Outline of the state of Wisconsin with sign language inside of the border.  The signs are A O D A.We’re increasing access to SUD treatment/recovery for people who are Deaf, Deaf-Blind or Hard of Hearing. 
A state-wide project for people who are Deaf, Deaf-Blind or Hard of Hearing and have SUD (Substance Use Disorder) issues, this program works to increase access to culturally-sensitive, language-appropriate and accessible SUD treatment/recovery services for this population. We work to reduce communication, language, cultural and other barriers to services for consumer participation. 

We do NOT provide one-on-one counseling. 

We assist with information/referral to existing providers and provide information to SUD service providers on how to become more accessible.
