Harbor Village Florida comments on Maryland's increasing rates of deaths related to heroin abuse.

As reported by The Washington Post in the article Heroin Deaths Spike in Maryland (6/27), the Maryland State Department of Health and Mental Hygiene has recently discovered that heroin-related deaths in the state have gone up by 88% within the last three years. Many local residents reported that they were expecting the result to be a large number but did not expect such a large spike. Maryland's neighboring state, Virginia, reported that its heroin deaths have doubled within the same time frame. As a result of these findings, both states have began training civilians to use the overdose-reversal drug Naloxone. Maryland Mayor Martin O'Malley has began to set goals on lowering the number of drug-related deaths in the state by 20%. Additionally, the state is beginning to launch public health campaigns and is pushing for more prescription regulations.

Heroin is a powerful drug that can affect anybody. Many people become addicted to heroin by improperly taking prescription opiates or by obtaining the street form of the drug. Heroin is so addictive that a person who uses it can get hooked even after one try. After using heroin for a certain amount of time, your body can develop a tolerance, ultimately leading you to use more and more. Heroin has caused and continue to causes many deaths.
