ABOUT

The Stay in the Know campaign works to provide the community with the facts, tips, and resources needed so you can make smart decisions about substance use. Whether you, a friend, a family member, or a child have been faced with a decision about substance use or misuse, it’s important to stay informed. We focus on Tobacco, Alcohol, Opioids and other substances because the misuse of these can have a negative impact on one’s overall wellness and well-being.

This campaign is brought to you by the Frederick County Health Department, Behavioral Services Division. The Behavioral Health Services offers a variety of vital health services to improve the health and well-being of the residents of Frederick County through programs to prevent disease and illness, promote wellness and safety and protect public health. We protect the health and well-being of all Frederick County residents.
