Milwaukee Bucks Assistant Coach Vin Baker Is Opening a Local Treatment and Recovery Center for People With Addictions
Milwaukee Bucks assistant coach Vin Baker, who's spoken about his battles with alcoholism, is opening a local treatment and recovery center for people with addictions.
Known as Vin Baker Recovery, the center is planned for 4757 N. 76th St., according to information filed with the city Department of Neighborhood Services.
Vin Baker Recovery, to be operated by Onalaska-based AMS of Wisconsin LLC, plans to use part of a two-story, 16,000-square-foot office building owned by St. Charles Youth and Family Services Inc., a nonprofit social services provider.
The treatment center is seeking a city occupancy permit for that site. It also will need a special use permit from the Milwaukee Board of Zoning Appeals.
Anyone can become addicted. Drugs don’t care where you live or what you do. Taken in sufficient quantity, you will become addicted.
Opiates are addicting no matter how they might be used. While many people think of opiate addicts as “IV-needle users,” most are persons who have never considered using a needle. Addiction can grow from smoking, sniffing, and swallowing narcotic drugs.
Less than 10-20% of those needing help ever get it. Far too many persons experience a downward spiral until their lives are destroyed or worse. Sadly, death from overdose, suicide, or other medical complications ends the life of an opiate-addicted person.
Contraindicated medications, possibly psychotropic medication interactions, and the need to coordinate care between medical professionals.
