Kentucky has a drug problem!
Law enforcement officers and prosecutors have an important part to play to to get drugs off our streets. Another part of the battle is getting treatment for people who are already addicted. Too often in my years in the court system, I have seen people who are ready to seek treatment, but have difficulty locating a facility or program with an opening. If they don't get into treatment, they quickly relapse into addiction. The cycle continues, tearing apart families.
There is a new tool available to families, doctors, court officials and others to find treatment opportunities: https://www.findhelpnowky.org/. It’s a website with information and resources to help someone in crisis or a dependency situation.
