“In order to effectively battle drug addiction, we must ensure that Frederick County citizens in need of assistance can easily access services and programs. It is our hope that citizens can use this information to gain resources to help turn the page on illness and start down the road to recovery. In Frederick County we must work together as a community to provide information and access to the services that reduce substance abuse and promote healthy living,”
- Commissioner Shreve
Once a month, from January to April 2014, your community leaders sponsored Drug Awareness Events at local high schools, as a response to the 300% increase in narcotics related activities in Frederick County. At each event drug paraphernalia and information on drug awareness programs was shared with the public. The Sheriff’s Office Drug Task Force and Frederick County drug and mental health professionals presented relevant information and provided assistance to educate the public about community resources that are available to help those in need.
This website was created to help the public locate valuable community services, view the PowerPoint presentation from the last Drug Awareness Event, view the live video presentation, find prescription drug drop off locations, and find links to the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office and the Frederick County Health Department.
If you need immediate help please call the 24 hour Crisis and Intervention Hot Line by dialing 211, or the Frederick County Health Department at 301-600-1029. If you have a life threatening emergency, dial 911.
