What is the KY-ODCP?
The Office of Drug Control Policy is tasked to coordinate Kentucky’s response to substance abuse. Our goal is to change the way substance abuse is handled in Kentucky, reducing the problem, and making the Commonwealth a model for other states. We have joined prevention/education, treatment, and law enforcement in a united effort to confront this epidemic and have made great strides. As we plan for the future, we know the success of our initiatives depends on the involvement and support of grassroots coalitions, local and state agencies, as well as community and faith-based organizations throughout Kentucky.
