The Need

If you or someone you know is in crisis call our 24-hour Hotline at 410-433-5175 (MD Relay Dial 711)


 Baltimore is a city in crisis.     

We make news for our 300+ homicides each year, but opioid-related deaths are the real headline.  For every overdose death, many more face the consequences of a nonfatal overdose including addiction and the risk of infectious diseases like HIV and Hepatitis C.  And get this—nearly 1 in 5 people in Baltimore suffer from a mental health issue, often with a substance use disorder.  Add a high poverty rate and a growing number of homeless, and the true Baltimore city crisis is obvious.  People need a place to recover.  A place that provides accessible mental health and substance use treatment.  A place that cares for the underserved in its city. 

A place like BCRI.
