Opioid Information

Opioid Crisis

The number of overdose deaths as a result of opioid use in Maryland, many of which occur from prescription opioids such as hydrocodone, oxycodone, codeine, and morphine, has been increasing since 2010


The best way to stop the misuse of addictive substances is to prevent dependence from happening in the first place by building an awareness & understanding of the potency and risk of misusing licit and illicit drugs.


There are different forms of treatment such as medication, counseling, and specialized psychotherapy to help a person change behaviors, thoughts, emotions, and how people understand situations.


Recovery from substance use disorders may require more than just one type of treatment or support mechanism. It is encouraged to not only obtain a physician, but also find a counselor and mentor.
