    Agency: Frederick County Health Department

    SCHOOL BASED SUPPORTS: A free, school-based counseling program for students in grades 4 and above who are affected by the addiction or substance use of a close family member. Students participate in an initial 12-week group with a trained Kids Like Us counselor. Meetings continue through 8th or 12th grade, depending on the participation of the student's school. Group members are also invited to attend a free day camp held during the summer and to participate in the annual community art show or artwork created at the camp. Participation in Kids Like Us is confidential and details about how the child's life has been impacted by substance misuse do not need to be disclosed in order for the child to participate in the program.
