In 2018, more than 300 people died from a fatal overdose in Baltimore County, the vast majority related to opioids. The County has consistently had the second highest number of overdose deaths in the state. Many more experienced non-fatal overdoses, with profound consequences for their own health, their families, and their communities.

Addressing the opioid epidemic is critical for the health and well-being of Baltimore County. That’s why on May 16, 2019, County Executive Johnny Olszewski announced plans to accelerate the County’s response efforts. As a first step, the County is seeking to hear from residents about their ideas to save lives. The opioid epidemic is a complicated problem, and hearing from the public will allow the County to develop a realistic strategy for making progress.

If you are looking for help for yourself or your family, please visit the Baltimore County website or call 410-88-REACH (410-887-3224).

The goal of survey is to obtain ideas about what the County is doing well and what it can do better. At the end of the survey, you will have the opportunity to provide your name, but you do not have to. Because this is a public process, your responses will be subject to public disclosure under applicable laws.
