  • Are you a drug, alcohol and tobacco free high school student living in Darke County? Are you between the ages of 15-18 and willing to take a free drug screening?
  • Do you want a "drug-free driver discount" on your car insurance?
  • Do you want additional school perks? Do you like saving money at local businesses?

How to receive a discount:

  1. Go to Recovery and Wellness of Midwest Ohio, 600 Walnut Street, Greenville, OH 45331, on Monday-Wednesday by 5:00 p.m. and request the "Drug-Free Driver" Student drug-screen. Trained treatment staff members will provide a supervised urine screen. No appointment is needed, but you may call ahead and ask for Roberta Short.
  2. Wait for drug-screen response which typically takes 72 hours.
  3. Return to Recovery and Wellness to pick up and sign your "Drug-Free Driver Card", which states you are drug-free at time of the test and that you agree to random testing for the following 6 months. Complete the paperwork and pick up a "perk discount bag" for being a drug-free student.

The Drug-Free Student Driver Discount Program is in partnership with American Family Insurance. Funding partners include the Coalition for a Healthy Darke County, Darke County United Way and Tri-County Board of Recovery and Mental Health Services.

Gateway Youth Programs (Gateway):  Gateway specializes in working with youth ages 7-17 who are struggling with relationships and their self-esteem. Many are in conflict with their family. Some are involved with juvenile court. Most are in need of help to succeed in school and to communicate effectively. Gateway’s main goal is to help youth gain the skills necessary to deal with life’s many challenges.

Achievement Center for Educational Success (ACES):   Students, grades 9-12, who are credit deficient, struggling in the regular school setting or on the verge of dropping out and need an alternative learning environment. Coursework is provided in small classrooms through online classes and by independent study all under the guidance of an onsite certified teacher and aides. Students also have the opportunity to receive support services that promote personal development, as well as addressing prevention and intervention, and workforce development by being matched to jobs in the community. The unique aspect of the ACES program is student’s credits are transferred to their home school and their diplomas are from their home schools upon graduating.

The goal is to help students get excited about their future – to be encouraged to dream big – and learn what it takes to put their dreams and goals into action.

Darke County We Are The Majority is an after-school leadership program through Recovery and Wellness Centers of Midwest Ohio for 7th-12th grade students with a focus on drug and alcohol free peer led prevention. Students help out the community through many activities during the year including after-school study sessions for any 2nd-6th grader in Darke County. The team has also designed and led Camp Lead summer camp, Majority’s Got Talent, Runday Funday, and Majority Art Classes. The unique component of this program is that it is comprised of all youth inspired activities that students feel impact our community with awareness and strength to create a brighter future for our community, especially for those of younger generations.

Any student who is drug/alcohol free is able to be a part of this program. This program aligns with the state We are the Majority Initiative began by Governor Kasich. To help combat the issues within the county, the adult leader, Kelly Harrison from Recovery and Wellness has participated in a Strategic Prevention Framework on youth led prevention through the state of Ohio and is now beginning to complete a SPF with the youth in the community to help make community change in this area. Kelly also provides ongoing prevention education in area school districts.

Some upcoming projects the group has planned in addition to study sessions, Main St. bridge graffiti clean up, and the SPF include volunteering with the Haunted Library Project with Gateway Youth Programs, a Majority Movie Night, Community Awareness Majority outdoor event, as well as other drug/alcohol free events to engage youth with alternative activities.
