There are some counties in Maryland that have located Oxycodone tablets that are illegally laced with Fentanyl.  This can be deadly and dangerous.  Please call 911 or your local law enforcement agency if you notice anything on the lower shore.

I Think I Need Help

Opioid abuse knows no bounds. You could be a student, an athlete, a mom, a “regular Joe.” You got hooked on painkillers. You might be on heroin.

You are in trouble.

Call us. We won’t judge. We will get you the help you need – usually right here in Somerset County.

It’s confidential.

Making a Difference

“We have staff certified to train family members and friends of opioid users because we want to get Naloxene in the hands of the people who can reverse an overdose to keep their loved one alive. This gives us the opportunity to get that individual into treatment which can ultimately lead to recovery.”

Matey Barker, Somerset County Health Department, Behavioral Health Director
