Real Talk

Learn about our new series: Real Talk

The Community Media Center has partnered with Carroll County State’s Attorney’s Office to produce a new pilot series: "Real Talk." The program is designed to shed light on substance use disorders, remove the stigma about the disease and provide information and resources for those in crisis, seeking treatment or in recovery.

Hosted by Tim Weber, Community Education Liaison with the Office of the State’s Attorney in Carroll County. Real talk examines the various stages of substance use through candid interviews with real people in our community. The program features people in recovery, family members of those who suffer from a substance use disorder, counselors in treatment centers and law enforcement officers working on the front lines helping to save lives.
