Americans have been struggling with drug addiction for centuries, with no signs of the problem slowing down anytime soon. In 2018, the National Institute of Drug Abuse reported over 67,000 drug overdose deaths. And, in particular, opioids have become an increasing problem throughout the United States. So much so that, in 2017, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Resources (the HHS) declared a public health emergency over the opioid crisis in America.

Certain regions throughout the country have higher incidents of drug addiction overall. The most crucial step to reducing addiction cases in these areas is to ensure there are adequate treatment and rehabilitation centers available for anyone to access. In particular, substance abuse in Harford County (and other regions of Maryland) has become a significant problem.

A Closer Look at Maryland

Maryland is an epicenter for the opioid crisis. In 2018, almost 90% of all drug-related deaths in the state involved opioids. Additionally, over a period of ten years (2008-2018), unintentional deaths from drugs have more than tripled. In 2008, the number of unintentional drug-related deaths was 694, while 2018 reported an all-time high of 2,406 deaths.

These harrowing numbers are a reminder that drug addiction is a serious problem. When individuals don’t get the help they need, they can spiral further into addiction, which can eventually result in death. Completing a program at a rehabilitation facility is one of the only ways to ensure a full recovery from drug addiction.
