Staff

On Our Own of Carroll County is a nonprofit 501 3 © organization. We first opened ours doors to the community in November of 2001. Today, we have over 300 unduplicated signatures! We are a consumer ran peer support wellness and recovery center, where we believe that recovery is possible! Most of the people you will encounter here at OOOCC are either working on or are currently in recovery. One of our goals here is to provide a safe environment for individuals with mental health and/or substance abuse disorders to come and work on their recovery. Remember, recovery is a journey and although it is your own personal journey, it is one that our volunteer managers and members all understand. Instead of struggling through this period of time alone, you can embrace the support of all the others who are going through the same things themselves.
