Talbert House 50th anniversary celebration to support Camp Possible program



Talbert House is celebrating 50 years of building a stronger community at its anniversary celebration Nov. 7 at the Hyatt Regency Cincinnati, followed by an afterparty celebration at Horseshoe Casino.

Last year, Talbert House served approximately 100,000 clients through face-to-face interaction and hotline services with the goal of improving social behavior and enhancing personal recovery and growth. 

“Fifty years ago, the founders of Talbert House believed that people would have a greater chance of success when treated in the community rather than institutional settings,” Public Relations Specialist Crystal Decker says. “They believed people would be more successful if they stayed connected to their families, work, and community.”

Proceeds from the event will fund Camp Possible, a therapeutic day camp for children ages 6-16 who struggle with substance abuse and/or behavioral health issues.

The camp helps students overcome academic and social challenges during gaps between school years. Many of them lose momentum and engage in negative behaviors when they have no schedule, direction or intervention. Camp Possible participants receive individual attention from trained staff as well as traditional group therapy sessions and skill-building activities. 

“Through the years, Talbert House evolved to meet the changing needs of clients, their families and the community,” Decker says. “But those core beliefs have remained.”
