From the Chestertown SPY:

When Carin Miller’s son was about 19 years old, he began to abuse heroin by snorting pills, eventually moving on to shooting up. This went on for six years before he got help.

Lucas Miller’s history of drug use started in high school with smoking marijuana. When he moved out of his parents’ house, one of his housemates had access to between 750 to 1,500 pills at any given time between five houses located in Frederick, Maryland.

“My son was addicted to heroin, he’s in recovery by the grace of God since Thanksgiving 2014, I think that’s where we are at,” Miller said.

Opioid overdoses now rank with cancer, strokes and heart attacks among the top killers in Maryland.

Depression is complicated. While it effects about 7% of the world's population (it's underreported, so the figures are likely much higher), it most commonly affects people between the ages of 18-25 - about 11%. Digging deeper, depression most often impacts people of two or more races, and women are 2x as likely to have had a depressive episode as men. Here's a gentle reminder that depression looks and feels different for everyone.

We're here if you need support.
