Resources for Substance Use TreatmentAs our community continues to confront the opioid crisis, we want to make sure you’re aware of providers in the area who can treat people with addiction. Please keep in mind that insurance coverage may differ, so when you call to arrange an appointment, verify that the provider accepts your health plan.

If you have problems arranging care or have any general questions, you can call the Health Department’s Behavioral Health division at 410 535-3079. You can also find more substance use information under the “Personal Health” tab above. > Learn More
