Carroll County's first clubhouse for drug and alcohol recovery celebrated its first anniversary in September, and awareness of the club has been steadily increasing since it opened.
The Triangle Recovery Club was launched by Tim Weber, a recovering addict himself, and a team of eight board members, who wish to remain anonymous.
The club, located on the second floor of 2 N. Court St. in Westminster, is expanding to add recreation, including a pool table and a TV room, according to Weber.
"It kind of gives it the clubhouse atmosphere," he said.
When Weber first got sober in Baltimore, he said there was a clubhouse he could go to any time and have someone to talk to. As part of the Triangle Recovery Club's nine-member board, Weber brought the idea to Carroll last year.
"We've needed it for a while," he said.
The club houses 12-step recovery meetings of all types throughout the week for alcoholics, drug users and anyone interested in the 12-step model, according to Weber.
Classes begin as early as 7 a.m. and as late as 8 p.m. seven days a week, according to the schedule online at trcofwestminster.com. The schedule is also posted on a board inside the door.
Some meetings are closed and only for people who think they have an addiction problem while others are open and could be for anyone in the community interested in the recovery process, according to Weber.
