Hi, my name is Angie Carter. I've been a certified substance abuse counselor for over 15 years. I began my career working in an adolescent inpatient treatment facility. Following that experience my husband and I opened a non-profit recovery center in Jefferson City Missouri. I was the director of services and supervised the volunteer staff. We provided recovery supports to individuals and families seeking help from the devastating impact of active addiction and alcoholism. In 2006 I went into private practice with my husband at Carter Counseling and Consulting Services where we continue serving our clients today. My primary specialty areas include addictions, codependency, and Adult/Child Syndrome. I have extensive counseling experience for...
In addition to being a Department of Transportation Certified Substance Abuse Professional (SAP), Angie has taught Substance Abuse Traffic Offenders Program (SATOP) classes for DUI/DWI offenders in Missouri. She served as Director for Crossroads Community Recovery Center and as a staff counselor at an adolescent treatment center.
My background includes a family history of alcoholism and addictions. I eventually wound up on the same path with a downward spiral due to this illness.
Finally in 1999 I got into recovery from alcoholism/addiction and my life turned around completely. Amazing things have happened for me along the way, one of those being the opportunity to help others as a substance abuse counselor. I believed God has blessed with a specific skill set to reach the alcoholic/addicts in order to help them and their families.
I have a tremendous respect and passion for recovery as it literally saved my life when all other attempts at various methods failed. I have first hand knowledge of the disappointment of relapse. I went to my first treatment center in 1998 but refused to follow up with any aftercare or a recovery support program. I re-entered treatment in 1999 and decided to follow directions and suggestions. I have been sober ever since.
I am eternally grateful that I have been given this gift to live a clean and sober life and the opportunity to help others also achieve the freedom and peace that comes from it.
This is my husband, Don Carter. He's also a counselor. Don and I have been married since 1999. Don is a Licenced Clinical Social Worker. He has been a therapist since 1988.
We love being able to work together and pursue our own dreams while helping others to do the same. Don likes football (except when the Bronco's beat the Chiefs), traveling, and all four seasons of the year.Don Carter, MSW, LCSW
