Bel Air is a city which is located in the state of Maryland. It is home to an estimated population of approximately 10,000 people as of 2019 according to the United States Census Bureau, Bel Air is one of the smaller cities in the state by population. But even being sparsely populated has not been enough to avoid the scourge of the nation’s drug epidemic. According to America's Health Rankings, in 2019 there were 30.2 drug deaths for every 100,000 residents of the state, and this undoubtedly included residents of Bel Air. This rate is well above the national average and shows just how bad the drug problem has become in Maryland. Every single life that was lost was someone’s loved one and a life that could have been saved. Many of these people never made it into treatment before accidentally overdosing and losing their lives to addiction. When a person first starts using drugs, they have a very low tolerance and can overdose quite easily. They also have no drive to stop using drugs because they just began and do not even think they have a problem yet. Because of this they hide their drug use and are dishonest with those around them. It is key that you never ignore signs of drug use in someone or wait for them to be ready. They can easily die before ever wanting help, so you must intervene if you want to keep them alive.
