Take Back My Life
Fighting Opoid Addiction

Take Back My Life is an initiative of the Frederick County Health Department aimed at expanding awareness of the risks associated with opioid use, while supporting families and empowering individuals on a path of health and recovery.

These videos present real people in the Frederick area who have experienced opioid use disorder — 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. Their stories provide hope and encouragement for a brighter tomorrow.

Main Video

At a young age, I started selling drugs. Later, I became addicted as well. I realized that I had to get help from somewhere else other than myself. I’m still a hustler today, but what I’m dealing now is hope. If I can take back my life, so can you.
