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.
