Adolescent Recovery & Support Services

 

We can help adolescents make better decisions regarding alcohol/drug use.  We all know that adolescence is a time when some teenagers experiment with drugs and alcohol.  This experimentation can turn into far more serious problems. 

 

Caroline County Behavioral Health provides assistance to adolescents who may already have a serious problem or may just be starting to experiment. 

 

We can provide guidance necessary to help an adolescent make a responsible choice about using chemicals. 

 

Our trained adolescent counselors provide the following services:

·             Evaluation and assessment

·             Individual counseling at the agency and in schools 

·             Education groups at the agency and in schools

·             Aftercare groups at the agency or in schools

·             Children at risk groups in school

·             Support to juvenile services where chemicals appear to be a factor

·             Student assistance program team members in

·             School-based counseling in the county

·             Referral to family therapist

·             Referral for inpatient treatment

·             Referral to self-help groups

 

 

 

Adult Recovery & Support Services

 

We recognize that each individual is unique and should be treated that way, so treatment is tailored in a way that ensures that each voice is heard and respected.

 

We offer multiple services to meet the needs of the adult client:

 

      + Alternative hours:  whether it be during the day or evening we will develop a schedule that best facilitate one’s recovery process

      + Individual counseling sessions

      + Day and evening group therapy

      + Gender specific groups

      + Medication assisted treatment (Physician assisted Suboxone & Vivitrol Therapy)

 

Our counselors also have the ability to:

      + Make referrals to appropriate inpatient or other service providers for substance related disorders services*

      + Arrange Care Coordination and case management for qualified customers

      + Provide Family Counseling**

 

*Clients that have completed inpatient treatment have access to case management through the Caroline Counseling Center following discharge.

**Family counseling services are also provided and strongly encouraged as this is an important facet of long-term recovery.  

 

Treatment for Those With Co-Occurring Disorders

 

Our integrated Behavioral Health Program, offers group and individual counseling for individuals with dual disorders (Substance & Mental Health). 

 

In order to be a member of the Co-Occurring Disorders Group, an individual must be a client of both the Substance use Disorder Recovery Program and the Mental Health Support Program and actively participate in treatment for both their substance use and mental health disorder. 

 

Group counseling consists of hourly 26-week didactic specific topics followed by guided participant discussion.  Mental health and substance abuse topics are interspersed.  These groups are facilitated by co-occurring qualified counselors. All clients are encouraged to participate in some type of 12-Step Support Group or Recovery Oriented Support System.

Prevention

Our Prevention Program philosophy is based upon the concept of "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." 

 

Our goal is to promote the personal and social growth of the individual and deter the use/abuse of alcohol and/or other drugs. 

 

Prevention Office employees are available to speak to groups, free-of-charge, on topics concerning alcohol and other drug use/abuse. We are a free resource to the community.  We also assist community groups, agencies, and individuals in providing programs and activities to prevent alcohol and other drug use/abuse.

 

The Prevention Office offers Narcan Trainings.  Narcan is a life-saving medication that can quickly restore the breathing of a person who has overdosed on heroin or prescription opioid pain medication like oxycodone, hydrocodone, morphine, fentanyl or methadone. 

 

For more information or to receive the Narcan training call 410-479-1882.

 

The Drug Free Caroline Coalition  (DFCC) is also administered through the Prevention Office. 

 

The goal of the DFCC is to reduce underage drinking and drug use by using a variety of techniques. 

 

The DFCC is composed of members from law enforcement, Board of Education, local parenting groups, health department employees, liquor licensing board and the general public.  If you are interested in serving on the DFCC, please contact the Prevention Office at 410-479-8164.
