Amy Park serves as the Division Chief of the Local Addictions Authority in the Bureau of Behavioral Health at the Baltimore County Department of Health in Baltimore, Maryland.  In this role, Amy leads the agency’s overdose response efforts and oversees programs including harm reduction, peer recovery support services, buprenorphine expansion, and non-fatal overdose outreach.  She has worked closely with the Baltimore County Detention Center over the last five years to support the implementation and expansion of a medication for opioud use disorder (MOUD) program for individuals who are incarcerated at the facility.  She is dedicated to reducing stigma and advocating for expanded and accessible services for individuals who use drugs.  

The Baltimore County Department of Health is driven by its mission to enhance health and prevent disease through education, advocacy, resource linkage, and treatment, which serves to enhance the quality of life for Baltimore County residents. As the third most populous jurisdiction in Maryland, Baltimore County serves over 850,000 residents. The Department of Health consists of three bureaus: Behavioral and Community Health; Clinical and School-based Services; and Animal Services, Communicable Disease, and Environmental Health. These bureaus collaborate to fulfill the vision of a Baltimore County where individuals can live, work, and play in a healthy environment.
