Take Back My Life is a campaign from the Frederick County Health Department aimed at expanding awareness of the deadly risks associated with prescription opioid and heroin misuse. These videos present real people in the Frederick area who have experienced opioid addiction—either their own or those of family members. They’re sharing their stories in hopes of saving other lives and households from the pain and heartbreak they’ve suffered.
The Behavioral Health Administration of the State of Maryland can provide guidance for certified substance related disorder treatment programs that are available throughout the state. Their local agencies in each county or jurisdiction, called Local Addiction Authorities (LAA), are helpful for navigating services. Treatment programs can provide services ranging from early intervention and outpatient treatment to medically monitored intensive inpatient treatment. An assessment from a licensed or certified addictions professional is needed to determine which treatment services are recommended.
