Intoxication-related deaths are skyrocketing across Greater Baltimore, and the consequences affect us all:

The Need 12

The mortality rate increased sharply for whites, blacks, and Hispanics alike, and for men and women.

The Need 13

The “drug economy” was the driving force behind approximately 85% of local crime, including murder, gang violence, theft, and prostitution.

The Need 14

More than 1,100 people lost their lives to heroin, fentanyl, and other chemicals last year — an increase of 10% from the previous year’s record high.

Additional consequences of the addiction crisis include homelessness, broken families and shattered lives. These will impact Baltimore for generations. Yet even in the midst of so much heartbreak, God is at work — here, at Helping Up Mission.
