Heroin addiction is an alarming epidemic nationwide, crossing societal and cultural lines that once seemed impenetrable. In Anne Arundel County alone, the Maryland Department of Health reports 671 opioid overdoses as recent as November 5th, of this year, 121 of which were fatal. The threat of fentanyl, a synthetic opioid 100 times stronger than morphine and used to increase the potency of heroin without much expense, increases the risk of fatal overdose. Typically, heroin users are unaware of fentanyl’s presence while using, leading to thousands of accidental overdoses. Though the statistics may be harrowing, there are resources available to combat the effects of and reliance upon heroin. Tranquility Woods offers a safe environment to detoxify and recover from heroin addiction.
