Montgomery County leaders on Monday asked the state for funds to create a residential substance use treatment center for youths, amid a fatal overdose crisis. The Montgomery County Council and County Executive Marc Elrich sent a joint letter to Democratic Gov. Wes Moore requesting an unspecified amount of state funding be used to launch the new facility. Maryland has no medical facilities that specialize in youth overdose stabilization, according to the letter.
