Chuck Laramee.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Twenty-seven years ago, Chuck Laramie had reached his personal abyss.

A slave to alcohol and recreational drugs, he was so intoxicated one night that a police officer insisted on driving him home.

“He asked me what I was going to do when I got home, and I told him I had a loaded .38 (handgun) in my drawer and I was going to stick it in my mouth and get it all over with,” Laramie recalled. “That was my plan if it got real bad — that’s how I was going to end my addiction.”

CounselingService1610.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Feeling like you don’t belong, that no one cares.

Keeping a major problem private, to the extent that it devours you from the inside out.

These are some classic symptoms in an increasing number of Addison County children who are hurting and aren’t asking for help, according to local human services providers.

Left unchecked, these symptoms can lead to depression and descent into risky behavior — like drug addiction and self-harm, advocates noted.

That opinion came through loud and clear in a recent survey conducted by the town of Middlebury and its engineering firm, Vanesse Hangen Brustlin, Inc. (VHB).
