Your Health and Safety Comes First
It’s okay keep your appointment
Our clinics remain open for normal business hours. Please stay tuned for any further updates and changes. We are closely monitoring the situation with your overall health and safety in mind.
Beginning Monday, March 23, 2020, we are facilitating the delivery of clinical services in a manner that decreases the need for in-person visits. We will be offering telehealth (e.g. video visits), online counseling, and telephone visits per provider as an alternative option for many ABC patients.
At American Behavioral Clinics, our number one priority is the health and safety of our patients. Please know we have taken extra measures to ensure that our clinics remain safe and ready to serve you and your families. We are following the guidelines from trusted sources, including the World Health Organization (WHO), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Wisconsin of Department of Health Services (DHS), and our local health department.
