The Opioid Overdose Crisis

Every day, more than 130 people in the United States die after overdosing on opioids. The misuse of and addiction to opioids—including prescription pain relievers, heroin, and synthetic opioids such as fentanyl—is a serious national crisis that affects public health as well as social and economic welfare. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that the total "economic burden" of prescription opioid misuse alone in the United States is $78.5 billion a year, including the costs of healthcare, lost productivity, addiction treatment, and criminal justice involvement.

  • Roughly 21 to 29 percent of patients prescribed opioids for chronic pain misuse them.
  • Between 8 and 12 percent develop an opioid use disorder.
  • An estimated 4 to 6 percent who misuse prescription opioids transition to heroin.
  • About 80 percent of people who use heroin first misused prescription opioids.
  • Opioid overdoses increased 30 percent from July 2016 through September 2017 in 52 areas in 45 states.
  • The Midwestern region saw opioid overdoses increase 70 percent from July 2016 through September 2017.
  • Opioid overdoses in large cities increase by 54 percent in 16 states.

In the late 1990s, pharmaceutical companies reassured the medical community that patients would not become addicted to prescription opioid pain relievers, and healthcare providers began to prescribe them at greater rates. This subsequently led to widespread diversion and misuse of these medications before it became clear that these medications could indeed be highly addictive.3,4 Opioid overdose rates began to increase. In 2017, more than 47,000 Americans died as a result of an opioid overdose, including prescription opioids, heroin, and illicitly manufactured fentanyl, a powerful synthetic opioid.1That same year, an estimated 1.7 million people in the United States suffered from substance use disorders related to prescription opioid pain relievers, and 652,000 suffered from a heroin use disorder (not mutually exclusive)

What Is A Drug Test?

A drug test is a technical analysis of a biological specimen, for example urine, hair, blood, breath, sweat, and/or oral fluid/saliva to determine the presence or absence of specified parent drugs or their metabolites. Major applications of drug testing include detection of the presence of performance enhancing steroids in sport, employers and parole/probation officers screening for drugs prohibited by law (such as cannabis, cocaine, methamphetamine, and heroin) and police officers testing for the presence and concentration of alcohol (ethanol) in the blood commonly referred to as BAC (blood alcohol content). BAC tests are typically administered via a breathalyzer while urinalysis is used for the vast majority of drug testing in sports and the workplace. Numerous other methods with varying degrees of accuracy, sensitivity (detection threshold/cutoff), and detection periods exist. A drug test may also refer to a test that provides quantitative chemical analysis of an illegal drug, typically intended to help with responsible drug use.

"When You Need a Test, Choose the Best"

Accredited Drug Testing Inc


The community of Mercersville, more popularly known today as Taylor's Landing, is located on the third land patent surveyed in what would eventually become Washington County, Maryland. Maj. Edward Sprigg's "Sprigg's Delight" would eventually encompass much of the land from here to near Sharpsburg, but the original is noted in the 1734 survey as "below the fording place of Charles Anderson." Charles Anderson received a patent in Terrapin Neck on the Virginia side of the Potomac this same year. A court order for a new road in 1838 refers to the location as "Zook's Landing." Since the C&O Canal was still under construction at the time and had only reached the area a few years earlier, it is thought this is a reference to the area being used by boatmen of the earlier Patomack Company. Further evidence pointing to a Patowmack Company port is that Henry Zook, operator of Zook's Landing, died in 1825, before the canal was incorporated. He is buried at Salem Lutheran Church cemetery at nearby Bakersville. There remains today an ancient iron ring affixed to the bedrock between the boat ramps at Taylor's Landing, long rumored to be a relic of the Patomack Company days. After the establishment of the C&O Canal the area became locally important as both a shipping and receiving point as well as the home port of many boatmen who lived nearby. The name Mercersville was given in honor of Charles F. Mercer, the first president of the C&O Canal Company. The popular name of Taylor's Landing is credited to John William "Jack" Taylor (1868-1948) who operated a store adjacent to the wharf for many years. During the mid to late 19th century, many of the residents of Bakersville 1 1/2 miles away are listed as employed on the canal. Closer, on a now lost road between Bakersville and Mercersville was the community of Dogtown. Today's Tommytown road skirts the edge of historic Dogtown, passing the remaining four of what was originally more than ten houses populated mostly by Canal workers and boatmen. The potomac River at Taylor's Landing has long been a favorite fishing spot, evidenced by the several ancient native stone structures known locally as "fish pots" still visible in the river. During the mid-20th century the area became popular for weekend cottages as well as a Rod & Gun Club, now a multi-unit residence at 1700 Taylor's Landing road. In 1972 the National Park Service was authorized to expand the boundaries of the C&O Canal park and most of these small cabins were bought and eventually razed. Along with both earlier and later homes, several examples of these weekend cottages remain in near original form at Taylor's Landing, providing a glimpse at a later chapter to the history of this place. Today Taylor's Landing, aka Mercersville, is a rural village of mostly single family residential homes and primarily known for the C&O Canal access site and Potomac River boat ramp located here.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the community has an area of 0.323 square miles (0.84km2), all of it land.
