State Releases 2019 Second Quarter Fatal Overdose Data
Press Release, Sept. 18th
Opioid, Heroin, and Fentanyl-Related Deaths Continue to Decline
ANNAPOLIS, MD—The Maryland Department of Health and Opioid Operational Command Center (OOCC) has released its 2019 second quarter report, which shows that Maryland has experienced its first six-month decline in the total number of opioid-related fatalities in at least a decade. Release of the report comes during National Recovery Month, a time to raise awareness of substance use disorders and the resources available to end addiction.
In the first two quarters of 2019, there were 1,182 total unintentional intoxication deaths in the state, an 11.3% decrease as compared to the same period in 2018. Of that total, 89.7% (1,060) were opioid-related deaths, primarily attributable to fentanyl. Opioid-related deaths declined by 11.1%.
In addition, heroin-related deaths continued to decline, decreasing 14.9% through June 2019 compared with the same period in 2018. Prescription opioid-related deaths declined by 3.5% in the first six months of 2019 compared to the same period in 2018.
“Though the continued decline in fatal overdoses is welcome news, the heroin and opioid epidemic remains a crisis and we will continue to respond with all the tools at our disposal,” said Governor Larry Hogan. “The fight against heroin and opioid overdoses has torn apart communities and families throughout our state and across the nation. Together, we can and we must do more in order to save the lives of thousands of Marylanders.”

Press Release, Sept 20
Economic Development Summit Discusses the Future of Maryland’s Workforce
ANNAPOLIS, MD—Governor Larry Hogan today addressed more than 500 business and educational leaders at the sold-out 2019 Maryland Governor’s Business Summit. Held at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront Hotel in Harbor East, the economic development conference highlighted the state’s workforce, including ways to attract and train employees, diversify and develop teams, modernize apprenticeship programs, and plan for the workforce of the future.
“I want to thank the hundreds of business leaders who have joined us from all across the state, not only for being here, but also for the critical role that you are playing in Maryland’s incredible economic resurgence,” said Governor Hogan. “It is thanks to each and every one of you that Maryland has experienced one of the biggest economic turnarounds in America with more businesses now open and more people working than ever before in the history of our state.”
Governor Hogan highlighted his administration’s focus on making Maryland more “Open for Business” through efforts like the Customer Service Initiative, which makes it easier and more efficient to do business with state agencies; the growth of the state’s apprenticeship programs; and a major expansion of the Opportunity Zone initiative to bring jobs and capital investment to underserved communities in Maryland.
