Breathitt County Part Of The Drug Solution

A grant provided by Kentucky ASAP and UNITE Coalition is helping to fight the drug problem in our area. It funds Naloxone training, it helped create the needle exchange program, and paid for three needle disposal boxes.Officials say they dont want the public to think they’re promoting drug use. But, looking at the statistics Breathitt County is one of the five counties in the United States where there might be a danger of a hepatitis outbreak, we thought we have to do something.Drug users now have three places they can dispose of dirty needles: City Hall, the Breathitt County Courthouse, or the Jackson Fire Department.
