Carroll County Coalition Against Underage Drinking

Comments

Hello I wanted to ask if you could leave a negative review on Facebook and Google for Paradiso Ristorante regarding underage drinking. They have just violated again for serving minors at their establishment and I think that calls for atleast getting the word out there for folks of our community to see. I have the name and info of the agent at the liquor board who violated them red handed. Let me now your thoughts and I’d love to be apart of your beautiful organization Best wishes Olivia

The Coalition is a volunteer organization addressing underage drinking and other drug prevention to adults and youth.

The Carroll County Coalition Against Underage Drinking is a volunteer organization addressing underage drinking and other drug prevention to adults and youth in our community. The Coalition was formed in 2011 as part of the Maryland Strategic Prevention Framework Grant and is part of the Substance Abuse Prevention Office, Bureau of Prevention, Wellness and Recovery division of the Carroll County Health Department.

Way to go, Heather! I am honored and proud to be your work colleague.

#September is National #RecoveryMonth, and each week Carroll County Health Department will be introducing you to one of our Peer Recovery Specialists. Meet Heather Lee Asbury!
"My name is Heather Asbury. I am a Certified Peer Recovery Specialist at the Carroll County Health Department. My role here is to help individuals with substance use disorder and mental health conditions achieve and maintain recovery, whatever that looks like to them. I am a person in long term recovery and what that means to me is that I have not had the desire or the need to use a mood or mind altering substance since November 19, 2013. It has been found that individuals that live with substance use disorder are more comfortable opening up and receiving help from someone who can say "me too." Each day, I strive to live a life of recovery, not only for myself, but to serve as a role model to those who are entering recovery. I know what it's like to be stuck in addiction, with no way out. I know what it's like to feel completely hopeless, helpless and unworthy. The only friend I had was drugs. As a Certified Peer Recovery Specialist and someone in recovery, I can be that glimmer of hope for someone. I will believe in you until you can believe in yourself. I have extensive training to help you navigate early recovery and work with you to get connected to resources that will build your recovery capital. I have such a strong passion for helping others! I never lose hope because someone never lost hope in me!"

Our Peer Recovery Specialists are a great resource for anyone who wants to get into recovery but isn't sure where to start or what recovery might look like for them. To contact Heather or another Peer at CCHD, call 410-876-4449 during business hours and ask to speak to a Peer.

I have completed treatment for alcohol addiction; something I've dealt with in the past and will continue to confront. I want to live life to the fullest and be the best father I can be. I want my kids to know there is no shame in getting help when you need it, and to be a source of strength for anyone out there who needs help but is afraid to take the first step. I'm lucky to have the love of my family and friends, including my co-parent, Jen, who has supported me and cared for our kids as I've done the work I set out to do. This was the first of many steps being taken towards a positive recovery.

"Sheriff's Office plans DUI Saturation Patrols for New Year's weekend"

Westminster, Carroll County, Maryland; December 27th, 2016 ----- The Carroll County Sheriff’s Office looks forward to the start of the new year. In order to help everyone get there safely, there will be extra deputies on patrol looking for those who choose to endanger lives and property by driving impaired.

Saturation patrols will occur on the evenings of December, 30, 31, and January 1. While deputies will be looking for all varieties of safety violations, the primary emphasis will be on those driving impaired by drugs or alcohol. These patrols are funded by a grant through the Maryland Highway Safety Office.

Therefore, if you are going to attend a gathering in which alcohol is likely to be served, please take a moment to plan ahead for safety. If possible, arrange to stay at the location, or if you must travel, identify a designated driver before the first sip. Make a plan and stick to it.
