Fight Opioid Abuse


Opioid and Heroin use is a widespread epidemic.  As a result, multiple agencies and organizations throughout Carroll County are working together to address the issues of drug addiction, prevention and emergency treatment.  As a way to help coordinate efforts, we’re compiling a list of events and links to important local resources.

If your organization would like to be included or if you would like to submit an event please email us at


Coping During COVID-19

Having a teen or adult child who may be experimenting with - or dependent on - substances such as marijuana, alcohol, or other drugs can be challenging, especially during the circumstances surrounding COVID-19 (#coronavirus). The Partnership for Drug-Free Kids has created a FREE online support community, featuring multiple weekly virtual meetings with staff clinicians and specially trained parent coaches offering guidance and support to help parents manage teen and adult children during this unique time. Topics include common concerns such as how to talk with your child so they will listen, establishing healthy boundaries, household rules and limits and consequences. They even have a tutorial on how to use the video conferencing platform! Learn more and register at…/online-support-community-for-parent…/.
