Maryland Innovation Now

 

Ask any informed American to describe the addiction crisis facing our country and you’ll likely hear words like these: “Rampant.” “Destructive.” “Out of control.” And, yes, addiction is all those things and more. Maryland has endured this scourge with the rest of the nation and knows firsthand how serious the challenge is.


If that were all there is to it, our situation would be grim. But that isn’t the case thanks to the people on the frontline of this struggle who are trying innovative approaches and producing fresh hope.


The Innovations Now initiative recognizes innovators and leaders across the continuum needed at the table to address addiction-- prevention, treatment, recovery, child welfare, criminal justice, law enforcement and health professionals – leaders who are creating solutions and driving change.
