Take Back My Life is a campaign from the Frederick County Health Department aimed at expanding awareness of the deadly risks associated with prescription opioid and heroin misuse. These videos present real people in the Frederick area who have experienced opioid addiction—either their own or those of family members. They’re sharing their stories in hopes of saving other lives and households from the pain and heartbreak they’ve suffered.

Main Video

I grew up in a loving and athletic household. In high school, a cheerleading injury introduced me to prescription opioids. By 25, I was taking narcotics daily. Eventually I lost my career and family. But treatment helped me recover and empowered me to take my life back.
