The organization Meta House announced this morning that it will expand its intensive drug and alcohol treatment services for women in the Milwaukee area. The half-century old non-profit currently serves up to 35 women and 20 children at one time in its inpatient program in Riverwest.

Today, leaders of the organization announced that they will open a second in-patient center next month in Shorewood, Wisconsin.

"Unfortunately, it remains the case that so many people need our services that we'd better make sure we're going to be a healthy organization." says Amy Linder, President and CEO of Meta House.  "Our feeling is Shorewood House is a large part of how we accomplish that."
