Partnership to End Addiction - Kentucky

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 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.

Take action and do your part to help end medicine abuse.

* Secure & Dispose Medicines Properly - Two-thirds of teens who report abusing Rx medication get it from family, friends, and acquaintances. Use proper storage and disposal, to help prevent abuse.

* Talk with Your Kids - Take action by having frequent conversations with the teens and young adults in your life about the dangers of medicine abuse.

*Get Help for a Loved One who is battling addiction - The KY HELP Statewide Call Center provides resources  for those seeking help for a substance use disorder and to their families.
