“We’re community engaged:” New clubhouse provides resources for teens impacted by substance abuse


SNOW HILL, Md.- Worcester County is now the home to a new adolescent clubhouse on a mission to support teens impacted by substance abuse.

It’s called CLUB F.E.A.R., which stands for Face Everything And Rise.

Programming is offered to youth ages 12 to 17 through Minary’s Dream Alliance from life skills trainings, wellness and nutrition resources, and even peer support groups.

There was an open house held over the weekend that allowed the community to tour the facility, learn about the services provided, and even help decorate.

We spoke with the Program Director who tells us the goal is to make the clubhouse a safe space for all. “So being able to have a space where no matter how I show up to it that there’s some consistency here with these people. That I can feel the compassion in that person that I’m more than just a number,” Ashley Cuffee said.

“We’re not just program and teen, we’re community engaged. We want to make sure that just like that vine and stem, we’re really making sure that everybody is growing the best way possible.”

This was made possible through grant funding from the Worcester County Local Behavioral Health Authority in partnership with the Maryland Department of Health.

There are already other clubhouses operating in Dorchester, Kent, and Talbot counties.

The Worcester County site is located at 107 E. Market St., Snow Hill, MD 21863
