Elkton is a city that can be found in the state of Maryland. It is home to an estimated population of 15,000 people as of 2019 according to the United States Census Bureau, making it one of the smaller cities in the state. But in 2019 there were 30.2 drug deaths for every 100,000 residents of the state according to a report from America’s Health Rankings, a rate which was higher than the national average by a substantial amount that year. Some of these deaths were undoubtedly from Elkton and many other rural communities across the state. Each drug death was a life that could have been saved with proper drug and alcohol rehabilitation and detox services. But many of these people don’t get help before it is too late, which is not necessarily the fault of rehabs in these areas. People must utilize treatment services for them to be effective, and if a person accidentally overdoses before ever being ready to get help it makes it very difficult to help them. Thankfully it is not impossible. Intervention services exist because they work, and they save lives every day. Never ignore signs of drug use in a loved one waiting for them to be “ready”. Act before it is too late to help them. No one wants to regret not doing everything possible to save a life.
