DENTON, Md.-  In Caroline County, a group is calling for more to be done about the heroin epidemic on the shore.

Wednesday in Denton, a group called "Fed Up" held a rally to call on the county and state government to do more to fight the growing heroin epidemic.  They say the tendency is to react to problems like this, and react to overdose deaths rather than deal with it proactively.  They hope Wednesday's rally shows local leaders that people want changes to be made.

"We have plenty of people who want to do something about it, sometimes we just don't have the means.  We're very sparse on resources, such as rehabilitation, treatment, meetings.  Our Caroline County health department is overworked, they don't have the manpower, and there's money out there," said Tom Conneely.

Organizers say the rally was more than raising awareness, it was showing support for those who know someone suffering through addiction in Caroline County.
