Frederick County is observing National Recovery Month this September with Frederick County Goes Purple, a massive grassroots call-to-action to unify our community and reduce substance-related deaths and overdoses. According to the Sheriff’s Office, there were 245 non-fatal and 49 fatal opioid-related overdoses in Frederick County in 2019. The non-fatal figure is down by 34, and fatalities are down by 6 as compared to 2018, but we still have work to do.
