Golf For A Great Cause!

Catalyst Life Services is excited to announce a golf outing, hosted by the Mid-Ohio Area Labor Council on June 14th at Oak Tree Golf Club!

All proceeds from this event will benefit the New Beginnings Detox/Withdrawal Management facility currently being built. Catalyst Life Services is always developing and growing to meet the needs of our community. Richland County is in the midst of an unprecedented opioid epidemic. The impact of this is far reaching: the child that grows up parentless, the employer who has lost time and money to a struggling workforce, the community that has had to redirect resources in response to a climbing death toll. This does not account for the losses of the individuals themselves: friends, siblings, neighbors, all of whom will never share their unique gifts due to the inherent challenges of addiction. Catalyst Life Services sees this as an opportunity to provide a comprehensive plan addressing the crisis of addiction holding back our community‚Äôs ability to grow and prosper.

Funding has been secured for the building(s) construction; however, walls alone do not make for a transformational experience. We are now seeking help with the remaining funds to complete this project. The money needed to provide all the necessary furnishings, design, landscaping, and finishing touches that will make this building not only operational, but also help elevate it as a place of healing.

The estimated budget to complete this project will exceed $200,000. The physical environment supports recovery from mental health issues, substance use, and the horrors of trauma. Many individuals struggling with substance use have experienced psychological trauma resulting from physical, sexual, or emotional abuse. Our goal is to create spaces that are welcoming and provide emotionally, spiritually, and culturally safe environments. A stay at these facilities will deliver lifesaving, evidenced based treatment, while also providing a sense of security, routine, and empowerment.
