Drug Statistics for Baltimore, Maryland

Baltimore has been referred to as the Heroin Capital of the US for years now, since before the opioid epidemic has swept the nation with crisis level overdose death statistics. Like most other large cities in our nation the epidemic is hitting Baltimore and the surrounding suburbs hard. This crisis has been a major priority of Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan. In 2016, Health and Mental Hygiene released the annual report of fatal overdoses from 2015. That report logged a total of 1,259 overdose deaths occurred in Maryland in 2015. The number of accidental overdose deaths has almost doubled since 2010.

The overdose rate in Baltimore has been due to heroin and other opioid based drugs in a majority of cases. According to ABC News, 1 in 10 Baltimore residents are addicted to heroin. Baltimore is different than most other U.S. cities when it comes to battling against this drug battle because out of a city of 645,000 residents, it is estimated that 60,000 are drug addicts and 48,000 specifically to heroin. Since the mid 90’s Baltimore has been looked at as key heroin distribution point for the drug being smuggled in from South America. Having these type of statistics and being familiar with the opioid problem for so many years many residents of Baltimore almost consider it a normal part of life. Many addicts have been around drugs their whole life, it has been passed down through the generations as normalcy rather than taboo.

A proper medical detox is when the individual will begin to purge the harmful substances that were being abused.

During the detox program, the individual is put on a medical taper and can be prescribed a variety of different medications custom medication plan specific to the client’s individual needs. During a proper medical detox the individual has 24/7 access to medical care and supervision.

The detox period is a fragile time because the individual will be experiencing extremely intense feelings of discomfort. The detox is draining emotionally as well as physically.

This is important during the transition from the detox into the more relaxed long-term drug rehab treatment setting that is also referred to as PHP.

In this Baltimore transitional level, addiction treatment is the only focus, clients stay on-site most of the time, and have a variety of groups to attend based on their individualized treatment program. Groups are held daily, and treatment includes weekly individual therapeutic sessions with their personal therapist.

Medications are administered in the clinical building. Groups are held daily and clients are still meeting with their personal therapist weekly. Groups are smaller and more intimate, the client is in specific groups according to their needs and address the core issues of their addiction.

Intensive Outpatient (IOP) in Baltimore, MD

The Baltimore IOP is focused on moving the external structure of a PHP program into an internal structure clients can follow on their own.

There are many different medications that can be prescribed to aid in the healing process for addiction treatment.

Baltimore Suboxone/Subutex Treatment for Addiction

Suboxone for MAT in Baltimore, is an option for those clients battling an opioid addiction. Opioids are prescription pain medications and other drugs like morphine and heroin. Suboxone has been proven successful in Medication Assisted Therapy for opioid treatment.

Suboxone is a prescription medication that includes the drugs Buprenorphine and Naloxone. Buprenorphine is known as an “opioid partial agonist” and like other opioids it can induce feelings of euphoria and respiratory depression. Being a partial agonist makes the drug weaker as an opioid and allows the buprenorphine to plug into the same receptors in an addicted individual’s brain who need that opioid presence in order to not experience withdrawal effects. The other ingredient, Naloxone is included to help prevent misuse of the Suboxone. It will cause withdrawal signs and symptoms if used in ways of abuse, such as injecting. These two drugs together make up Suboxone.

Suboxone is used to stop the cravings that clients experience while withdrawing from heroin and other opiates. A long term suboxone program blocks drug cravings and has been proven to reduce relapse. Suboxone maintenance programs are 50% more successful for opioid addiction treatment than the traditional 12-step model.

All clients receiving a prescription for Suboxone in a MAT program are also in group and individual therapy sessions to aid with the addiction treatment. We do not just prescribe our clients Suboxone and send them on their way, each client instead is in an addiction treatment program receiving therapy while on the medication.
