Rogers’ sites plan ways to participate in Mobilize Recovery Day of Service

08/15/23 01:30:pm

As part of Rogers’ sponsorship of Mobilize Recovery 2023, sites throughout the System are hosting opportunities for teammates to give back to the communities we serve for the Mobilize Recovery Day of Service on September 30. Marking the end of National Recovery Month, the service day will be the largest single-day organized event in the recovery community according to Mobilize Recovery.

“Rogers is taking a holistic approach to community wellness by organizing food drives throughout the System to support local food pantries,” says Michael Beyer, director of Outreach, Eastern and Western Service Areas. “Rogers recognizes the interconnection between mental health, addiction, homelessness, poverty, and food insecurity. By addressing these interconnected issues, Rogers seeks to make a positive impact on the communities we proudly serve.”

The food drives begin September 20 and run through September 30.

The Oconomowoc campus is hosting a blood drive at the Ladish Co. Foundation Center on September 30 from 10 am to 3 pm.

“Mobilize Recovery’s Day of Service brings all those in recovery, as well as those touched by recovery, together to give back to the community,” says DeAnna Klingbeil, director of Nursing for Residential Services. “All of us have been impacted by mental health or substance use at one time or another. Blood donation just seemed like a natural pairing. Opening our doors and giving with the community, for the community, helping people, is what it’s all about and it’s what we at Rogers do.”

Community members and Rogers teammates are encouraged to participate in the blood drive. Click here to sign up.

Additionally, Matthew Boyer, MD, addiction psychiatrist, and Lauren Scaletta, PsyD, psychologist and clinical supervisor of the Herrington Centers for Mental Health and Addiction Recovery Adult Residential Care at Rogers’ Oconomowoc and West Allis campuses, will attend the Mobilize Recovery national meeting in Washington, DC September 17 to 19. They’ll join advocates, members of Congress, heads of state and federal government agencies, family members, and allies.

“I’m looking forward to meeting leaders in the field of addiction recovery and learning about grassroots efforts to strengthen communities affected by substance use,” says Matthew Boyer, MD, psychiatrist at Rogers in Philadelphia.
