Fieldview Healthcare helps widens services and reach for Catholic Charities

November 27th, 2018


WICHITA, Kansas, November 27, 2018 – Fieldview Healthcare and Catholic Charities partner to bring hope and change to the Wichita Community. Catholic Charities works with individuals whom are struggling with poverty, domestic violence, disabilities and more. According to a representative from Catholic Charities about 50 percent of the people they help struggling with mental illness or substance abuse.

Fieldview Healthcare has donated one bed to Catholic Charities for an entire year that 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.” – Joyce Mahoney, senior director of programs (see https://www.catholiccharitiesusa.org)

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 centers 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, the Executive Director for Fieldview Healthcare, expresses the importance of giving back to the community. “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.”
