RWC to hold dinner, auction

MIAMI COUNTY — The Recovery and Wellness Centers of Midwest serves the communities in Miami, Darke and Preble counties with quality prevention, education and intervention services for mental health and addiction recovery.

RWC has a focus on children and youth. The philosophy of “It is Better to Build a Healthy Child now than to try to fix an Adult Later” serves as a guidestone. R&WC is committed to insuring access and delivery of much needed services in the school setting, the local incarceration facilities, area Emergency Departments, in our local Mental Health and Recovery Centers as well as the community at large. RWC offers a full range of services at their various locations, which include: Mental Health Counseling; Community Psychiatric Support Treatment; Outpatient Psychiatric Services; Hotline and Mobile Crisis Services; Specialized Services for “At Risk” Youth; programming for Youth on topics such as “Bullying”, “Substance Abuse Issues” and “Self-Esteem”; Parenting Skills; and a Full Range of Counseling / Intervention Services for those struggling with addictions (drugs, alcohol, gambling…); as well as supportive intervention for their loved ones.

While the need for these services seems ever increasing, the funding for such services seems to be ever decreasing. Medicaid has not raised their reimbursement rates for these services in OVER 15 YEARS!!! Thus, the RWC is preparing for their first ever Charity Dinner and Auction Event !!! They are counting on local friends and neighbors to help make the event a success.

The Dinner/Auction will be held on Friday July 24, 2015 at the St. Boniface Parish Hall, 310 South Downing, Piqua, Ohio from 5:30p 10:00PM. Doors open at 5:30pm. Dinner will be served from 6:00-7:00 with musical entertainment by the band Fables! Live and silent auction begins at 7 p.m.

Advanced tickets may be purchased at any of the RWC Locations for only $15 (or $20 at the door), which includes your dinner and delicious desserts.
