In 2008, the Kentucky Office of Drug Control Policy in collaboration with the Partnership for a Drug-Free America started a statewide PSA campaign to bring professionally produced localized media messages to strengthen, and deepen drug-prevention media efforts.
Kentucky has long recognized the epidemic proportions of substance abuse among youth and adults including prescription drugs, methamphetamines, heroin, and fentanyl.
The Partnership offers resources and tools, including powerful and timely public service campaigns which assists the Office of Drug Control Policy's approach in combating the scourge of substance use in Kentucky communities.
With the assistance of our many federal, state, and local partners, the Kentucky of Office of Drug Control Policy and the Kentucky Agency on Substance Abuse Policy (KY-ASAP) can continue to strive towards, and succeed in our goal: to transform how Kentucky addresses the treatment of addiction and recovery.

The Medicine Abuse Project
The Partnership to End Addiction (formerly the Partnership for Drug-Free
Kids) has been addressing the opioid epidemic since the early 2000s,
and in 2012 brought together a group of partners from the public and
private sectors to form the Medicine Abuse Project. This national action
campaign aims to reduce teen initiation of medicine misuse. It provides
comprehensive resources for parents and caregivers, law enforcement
officials, health care providers, educators and others so that everyone
can take a stand and help end this epidemic.
