Harry is like any recovering addict: Looking for a chance to reset and start a healthy life. Recovery, however, doesn’t end with sobriety. It continues with the search for housing and a job, and the desire to be a productive member of society.
This journey can be rough shouldn’t be made alone, yet it can be really hard to seek out assistance along the way. Harry found the courage to ask for help getting sober, but he still needs help to plant his roots and become a positive influence on his community.
Harry now has his own apartment and works full time for the University of Maryland Hospital as a Unit-Secretary in Shock Trauma.
Over 42 million Americans need intervention and/or treatment. An estimated 20 million people are currently in recovery from some type of drug dependency, coupled with another 22 million people in need of treatment. These numbers do not represent the countless millions who need information about, and prevention services for, drug addiction.
The levels of heroin and other opioid addiction in Baltimore, as well as in other cities, are at an epidemic level. In a previous ABC News Report, Baltimore was cited as the “U.S. Heroin Capital”—a notorious designation. Therefore, in January 2015, Governor Larry Hogan declared a State of Emergency in Maryland. In February 2015 he created a Heroin and Opioid Emergency Task Force to address the increasing epidemic of drug addiction in the state, with the purpose of earmarking specific funding for addiction counselor intervention and prevention treatment programs.
