ELKTON, MD. – Maryland's Opioid Operational Command Center (OOCC) Executive Director Steve Schuh, and his Opioid Intervention Team (OIT), met with officials from the Cecil County Health Department, Cecil County Public Schools, Cecil County Sheriff’s Office and local police chiefs, and the County Executive and staff on Tuesday. Cecil County was the twelfth stop in the OIT’s state-wide tour to get an up-close view on how each Maryland county is tackling the opioid issues that have plagued our nation. The fact-finding tour, initiated by the OIT, is Director Schuh’s opportunity to hear best practices and challenges faced by local agency leadership.

“It is with each meeting and encounter, where we work collaboratively, that our fight grows stronger. We are tremendously appreciative that Director Schuh and his team met with us in Cecil County and grateful for any assistance that is provided us as we collectively continue to battle this devastating epidemic,” said County Executive McCarthy.
