Maryland is located at the northern end of the mid-Atlantic region of the U.S. It is one of the smallest states in size, but is one of the most densely populated. A significant portion of Maryland’s drug trafficking takes place along Interstate 95. Many of the drugs, weapons, and proceeds from DTOs travel through the state in transit to New York. Also, as a major seaport, Baltimore, sees much of the international drug traffic.
Baltimore has been severely affected by heroin-related problems for over a decade. The city sees more heroin-related crime than almost any other U.S. city. But, the state of Maryland is experiencing problems with meth, opioids, alcohol, and many other drugs as well.
In the second quarter of 2017, there were 1,172 overdose deaths reported in Maryland. This is an increase from the 979 overdose deaths for the same quarter in 2016. So, let’s take a look at the numbers for the drugs most commonly abused in the state.
The following statistics are from a preliminary report issued by the Maryland Department of Health for the second quarter of 2017:
Opioids accounted for 1,029 of the overdose deaths.
As many as 586 overdose deaths involved heroin.
Prescription opioids caused 211 deaths.
Cocaine was responsible for 49 overdose deaths in this time period.
Alcohol caused 37 deaths.
Alcohol in combination with other drugs caused 230 deaths.
Most opioid-related hospitalizations were for people between 45 and 54 years of age.
More than 450,000 residents in Maryland reported using marijuana in the past year.
Arrests involving marijuana increased by 4.37% in the past year.
Young adults in the “rave” scene are the most frequent meth users. Statewide, meth abuse statistics are low.
Many of the people who died from overdoses had a previous hospitalization for nonfatal overdose. For this reason, the Overdose Survivors Outreach Program (OSOP) was created to facilitate interventions to help these individuals get treatment. The specialists in this program also provide additional support by calling each day to assess the individual’s needs. This is only one of the many initiatives in Maryland that are working to save lives.
The United States Senate passed the 21st Century Cures Act which provides $500 million per year to assist states in expanding prevention and treatment programs. This is only one of many programs initiated by our government in an effort to stop the spread of addictions. In Maryland, the following local programs are also making a difference:
