The Kentucky Justice and Public Safety Cabinet and Operation UNITE are launching a new substance abuse call center that will connect people across the state with drug treatment. Beginning December 1, 2017, Kentuckians struggling with a substance use disorder, either themselves or within their families, can call 1-833-859-4357, or 1-833-8KY-HELP. The number is toll-free and callers can speak with a specialist about treatment options and available resources. The specialist will conduct a brief screening assessment in order to connect callers with the most relevant treatment services as quickly as possible.
