HOPE Consortium, formed in 2015, is a partnership of organizations in northern Wisconsin that came together response to grant funding available under Wisconsin HOPE legislation to address growing problems associated with opioid abuse, and in 2017 was expanded to include the provision of care for those affected by methamphetamine use. HOPE Consortium represents a collaborative rural model for substance use disorder treatment and recovery support. Partner agencies pool resources to support use of evidence-based practices and a regional recovery-oriented system of care. Those served include men, women, and affected family members, with priority for women of childbearing age, who live in Oneida, Vilas, Forest, Price, or Iron Counties or Forest County Potawatomi, Lac du Flambeau Chippewa, or Sokaogon Chippewa Tribal Nations. Family Health Center of Marshfield, Inc., serves as the grantee and provides staff support to the HOPE Consortium.
