Wednesday Mar 28th, 2018
Baltimore City has a new way to fight the opioid crisis. Mayor Catherine Pugh announced plans for the State’s first Stabilization Center, which will open next year.
It will be located at the former Hebrew Orphan Asylum, at 2700 Rayner Avenue in the city's Coppin Heights community.
"Like many cities across our country, Baltimore is working to counteract the opioid epidemic that has devastated families and disrupted whole communities," said Mayor Pugh.
"This first-of-its-kind 'Stabilization Center' will provide critical resources for those dealing with the disease of addiction and support their determination to get their lives back on track and become productive citizens of our community. I am grateful to my former colleagues of the Maryland General Assembly and Governor Hogan for providing the funding for this treatment and support center. I am also grateful to our Health Commissioner, Dr. Leana Wen, for leading this important initiative."
