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.

Did you know that October is National Depression Education & Awareness Month? We've compiled the most recent data we could find related to depression for Mid Shore youth and young adults.* The Maryland average of high schoolers reporting symptoms of depression is 32% - Talbot, QA and Caroline were slightly lower than the average, while Dorchester and Kent were higher. The male/female rates also follow much of the rest Maryland. What we noticed is that over the last three years, the rates in all five counties are trending up. With the number of youth struggling with depression today, it is likely your teenager or young adult has been affected in some way, whether personally, or through a friend or peer. It's important to start the conversation about depression (and mental health in general), with the young people in your life.

Want to talk to your loved one but aren't sure how? Here's an article to help get you started: polaristeen.com/articles/talking-to-your-teen-about-depression/
