Northeastern states have suffered grave consequences during the nation’s opioid epidemic. In Maryland, nearly 3 in 10 people in the state have a friend or family member who was or is addicted to opioids. Prescription opioids have caused major problems, but heroin is also becoming increasingly popular.
Heroin has spread from Maryland’s inner cities to its suburbs, offering a cheaper alternative to prescription drugs. Heroin-related deaths in the state have tripled in the last 5 years, and fatal overdoses on fentanyl-laced heroin have increased eightfold since 2013.
Maryland—Increasing Access to Quality Treatment
In response, the state has provided intravenous drug users with access to clean syringes. Authorized pharmacies distribute naloxone—an overdose-reversal drug. The state has also increased its funding for addiction treatment and made efforts to raise awareness about the dangers of addiction.
As awareness increases in Maryland, treatment options are expanding and evolving. There are a wide range of quality treatment options in Maryland, and we can help you find the right rehab for you or your loved one. You’re not alone—call us: 1-866-317-7050.

Getting Sober in Maryland
Though Maryland is a smaller state, there are so many options for addiction treatment. The state has nearly 400 treatment facilities, each with its own specializations and philosophies. You can find a rehab to suit whatever you or your loved one might need.
There’s no need to look for facilities specific to alcohol and drugs, because most will treat addiction to any mind- or mood-altering substance. You’ll want a facility that can focus on the underlying causes of your or your loved one’s addiction. For many people, metal illness accompanies substance abuse, so there are dual diagnosis rehabs that will provide treatment for both conditions.
For people seeking treatment who want to still maintain their job and daily life, there‘s a huge selection outpatient rehabs in Maryland. However, greater success rates in long-term sobriety are seen in people who attend an inpatient or residential treatment facility. Residential treatment is a safe environment, separate from potential relapse triggers. If you or your loved one is struggling with opioid abuse, inpatient treatment may be important for sustained recovery.
You’ll have to check with each facility about which payment options and insurance plans are accepted. If you can’t afford treatment, about 35% of Maryland rehabs will offer treatment at no charge if you meet certain conditions.
