Statistic: 45 Charles County drug- and alcohol-related deaths in 2016

Statistic Description: Although Charles County’s substance misuse death rate is lower than that of the city of Baltimore, Baltimore County and Anne Arundel County, it has not escaped the scourge that is tearing up families in Maryland and all across the country. The state of Maryland has responded to the epidemic by guiding doctors about addictive painkiller prescriptions, monitoring patients through pharmacists to see who is providing these prescriptions, and making naloxone, the overdose reversal drug, more readily available. In Baltimore, at least, police are investigating the scenes of fatal overdoses linked to fentanyl in order to gather evidence that will lead them to identify drug dealers. Though it’s a start, there are still drug misuse problems throughout the county.

You’re not alone in this struggle.

    Waldorf Residential Treatment Programs

    If you or a family member thinks it’s best to stay at a facility with a highly structured residential inpatient treatment program, there are many places to turn to for help.
