"The counselors at the Jackie Nitschke Center were so loving with my brother and helped him achieve true healing."

Who was Jackie Nitschke?

In 1997, the Jackie Nitschke Center was named after the late wife of Green Bay Packers great, Ray Nitschke. Jackie Nitschke was a recovering alcoholic and an outspoken advocate in the recovery community. She openly shared her journey with others, teaching our community that the disease of addiction crosses all income levels and families.
