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.

*Funding Opportunity Announcement*

Proposals Now Being Accepted for Senate Bill 192 Treatment Grants to Address Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) 


It is well established that Kentucky has a significant public health crisis with regards to substance use disorder, particularly prescription and illicit opiates. The Commonwealth has seen a substantial increase in opiate use, a significant increase in the number of babies born with NAS, and an increase in blood-borne diseases from intravenous drug use, including Hepatitis C and HIV.  The funding from SB 192 will help the state address these problems. 

The Kentucky Agency for Substance Abuse Policy (KY-ASAP), through a partnership with the Kentucky Department for Behavioral Health, Developmental and Intellectual Disabilities, is currently accepting SB192 grant proposals to address neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS). This bill allows up to $1 million in funding to substance use treatment providers to address Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) by offering comprehensive residential treatment services to pregnant women who have opiate dependency through programs that employ evidence-based behavioral health treatment or medically-assisted treatment.
