Frederick, Maryland is part of the Baltimore-Washington Metropolitan Area. It also serves as the county seat. Frederick is just one hour from Baltimore and Washington D.C., at Maryland’s border with Pennsylvania. Frederick is a great option for people who are looking for a small-town feel, but still want to be close enough to the big-city excitement. Frederick is home to 71,000 people. It is close to Washington Metro. Due to its increasing population, the city has seen an alarming rise in opioid use.
Frederick isn’t immune from the devastating effects of opioid abuse. In Maryland, heroin and other opioid-related overdoses have experienced a significant rise in recent years. It is the leading cause of death for Maryland’s young adults. Intoxication was the leading cause of death in Maryland’s young adults in 2017, according to Maryland Health Department’s 2017 end-of-year report. 35 of these deaths were caused by heroin overdoses and 17 were due to prescription opioids. Officials credit the increase in heroin sales in areas that have been laced w/ Fentanyl. This dangerous synthetic opioid is 100-times more potent than morphine. Overdose risk is greatly increased when consumers aren’t aware that the drugs they purchase contain this deadly opioid. Frederick lost 49 people to Fentanyl in 2018, according to the Frederick Police Department. Fentanyl is the most common overdose death in Maryland and Frederick County.
According to the County Community Health Assessment, 52,578 Frederick residents had at least three negative childhood experiences during their adolescence. This represents 27.2%. This is 27.2%. Toxic stress can build up in a child’s ability to cope with adversity. Toxic stress can lead to brain dysfunction and permanent damage. This can result in poor mental and physical health later on. Multiple ACEs can increase your risk for adverse mental and behavioral outcomes. This includes substance abuse. Surveyors in Maryland have identified the “moderately severe” percentage of adults who suffered trauma as children as significantly higher than the Maryland average.
Young people with easy access to alcohol or drugs are more likely than those who live in neglect or household distress to use them. According to the County Community Health Assessment, 26.4% of teens considered alcohol and/or other prescription drugs very easy or easy to obtain. Frederick County’s rate of underage drinking is higher that the state average for people aged 12 to 20 years. A staggering 31.9% of Frederick County high schoolers admitted that they have used alcohol within the past month. 16.2% also admitted to binging. Maryland’s high school students who abuse drugs are higher than the average. This is a significant risk factor for the community.
Opiate addiction is a serious and chronic medical condition that can be treated with medication. This is a psychological dependence on opiates like heroin and painkillers. The person continues to use the drug, despite the harm it causes to their lives. Patients with this illness cannot quit using opiates even though they know it is damaging their health, disrupting their personal and social lives, or creating legal problems. Although patients do not need to stop using opiates, neurobiological adaptation of the nervous system to drug abuse or drugs does mean that their bodies are more dependent. Patients are able to restructure their lives around this drug.
Based on medical literature and decades of experience, medication-assisted treatment such as buprenorphine or methadone is one of the most effective options for OUD patients. Our Suboxone Clinic is located in Frederick, MD. We aim to help addicts overcome opiate dependence that has resulted in the loss of essential stabilizing elements.
Patients are treated with respect and encouraged to manage their OUD as best they can.
Suboxone is an opiate-agonist and strong medical evidence supports its use. Patients also benefit from medication’s stabilization.
Substance Abuse Therapy and counseling can help to foster behavior change and change.
Patients’ willingness and ability to take part in treatment planning can help them gain insight into their condition, and improve their outcomes.
We will help with medically-supervised withdrawal when necessary. OUD is a long-term medical condition that can require ongoing (sometimes even permanent) treatment.
Frederick Institute offers outpatient treatment for OUD using opiate-agonist therapy with Suboxone. These medications can be used as partial agonists and agonists to provide long-term stabilization of subjective and objective withdrawal symptoms, and the symptoms associated with craving. This is part of a larger service that includes counseling and therapeutic intervention. Patients can feel normalized by these medications and can participate in counseling or other interventions to treat their addiction.
Our patients choose us because of our professionalism.
Suboxone is not available from specialist addiction clinics. Suboxone can be ordered in a doctor’s offices. According to WHO, only 10% of opioid dependent people are receiving treatment. Suboxone can increase treatment options for people who might not have access to other options.
Suboxone has been proven to be an effective treatment option. In a study by Richard D. Blondell MD and his colleagues, individuals were placed in an opioid discontinuation or opioid replacement program. Use of buprenorphine in this replacement program predicted better compliance to the treatment protocol.
Suboxone has many benefits.
Suboxone has a slower onset and milder effect than full opioids, making it less likely that Suboxone will cause addictive behavior. Users can increase their buprenorphine high by injecting or crushing Subutex in early treatment. This will cause a quicker onset and more pleasurable response. This is not the case with Suboxone. Although addiction is possible with this medication it is not a high-risk risk.
