WICHITA, Kansas, November 26, 2018 – Fieldview Healthcare and Catholic Charities are partnering to bring hope and change to the Wichita Community. Catholic Charities works with individuals who are struggling with hunger, homelessness, domestic violence, disabilities and more. About 50 percent of people it helps in shelter struggle with mental illness or substance abuse.
Fieldview Healthcare has donated a bed to Catholic Charities that, for an entire year, may be used by a designated individual at a time to receive full-service treatment.
Joyce Mahoney, Senior Director of Programs for Catholic Charities said, “This generous gift will allow us to address addiction prior to receiving services at Catholic Charities. When clients are free of drugs and alcohol, we can then address domestic violence or other barriers to reach goals in a productive manner.”
Fieldview Healthcare, parent company of Fieldview at Holland, offers evidence-based treatment for those struggling with both substance abuse and mental health issues. The treatment center offers individualized care to those 18 and older with a full-range of services including medically monitored (prescription managed) detox, residential inpatient care, intensive outpatient care, outpatient care, partial hospitalization, and sobriety coaching.

Dr. Diane Peltier, executive director for Fieldview Healthcare, said giving back to the community is important.
“This donated scholarship will allow Fieldview at Holland to serve those clients identified by Catholic Charities as most in need. Catholic Charities has long provided help to those in Wichita who need it the most. Fieldview at Holland provides life-changing addiction treatment, and through this scholarship, Fieldview at Holland’s goal is to open access to treatment for the underserved in Wichita.”
In the nature of the giving season, a formal ceremony celebrating the collaboration between Fieldview Healthcare and Catholic Charities will take place the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, November 27, 2018 at 11:30 AM CST at Catholic Charities Harbor House. Contact the agency for details.
