Financial Assistance

At the Jackie Nitschke Center, we offer financial assistance to help cover the cost of treatment.


If you thought Green Bay Packers legend Ray Nitschke was tough, you should get to know his wife Jackie. In her lifetime, Jackie was a recovering alcoholic and an outspoken advocate in the recovery community, sharing her stories of treatment and rebuilding her life. In the process, she taught our community that the disease of addiction crosses all income levels and families.

"I felt so grateful and blessed to be given the financial assistance; it made me want to work that much harder to succeed in the program."

About Jackie’s Legacy Financial Assistance (JLFA)

Although treatment at the Jackie Nitschke Center is one of the more affordable recovery programs in the nation, not everyone can afford the cost of treatment. That is why the Jackie Nitschke Center offers financial assistance to help cover the cost of treatment. Treatment levels may include any or all of the following:

  • 28-day Residential Treatment
  • 8-week Intensive Outpatient
  • 16-week Outpatient

How is JLFA Funded?

The generosity of our donors entirely supports the JLFA program. It is a resource-based initiative, which means its availability relies on the continued support from our community. Each donation received goes directly towards subsidizing the cost of treatment for individuals who otherwise cannot afford it.

How Can You Help?

By contributing to Jackie’s Legacy Financial Assistance program, you offer more than just financial support—you give the gift of hope and a new beginning. Every donation, no matter the size, makes a significant difference. Your support enables us to extend our services to more individuals and their families, creating stronger, healthier communities.
