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.

The Behavior Health Administration of the State of Maryland can provide guidance for certified substance misuse treatment programs that are available throughout the state. These programs provide services ranging from early intervention and outpatient treatment to medically monitored intensive inpatient treatment. Adolescent, male-specific, and female-specific programs are available.
