The Honorable Steven Beshear, Governor
The Honorable Daniel Mongiardo, Lt. Governor
Commonwealth of Kentucky
The State Capitol
Frankfort, Kentucky 40601

Dear Governor Beshear and Lt. Governor Mongiardo:

The following report was prepared by the dedicated and professional staff of the Office of Drug Control Policy
(ODCP) with the assistance from the Justice & Public Safety Cabinet.

Since the establishment of this office on July 9, 2004, by Executive Order 2004-730, we have been
responsible for all matters relating to the research, coordination and execution of drug control policy for the
Commonwealth, while directing state and federal grants management that focus on prevention/education,
enforcement and treatment efforts.

The ODCP is proud to coordinate Kentucky’s response to substance abuse through prevention, treatment and
law enforcement. Our goal is to change the way substance abuse is handled in Kentucky and reduce the
problem, making the Commonwealth a model for other states.

We continue to work toward significant goals that will strengthen our position to fight drugs in our state
through innovative partnerships, technology and leadership.

This report focuses on the 2010 accomplishments of ODCP and the Kentucky Agency for Substance Abuse
Policy (KY-ASAP) and the advances of other major partners in the drug abuse system. We continue to
strengthen our partnerships within our Cabinet, Cabinet for Health and Family Services, Environmental and
Public Protection Cabinet, Personnel Cabinet and across the state with coalitions and local boards, the law
enforcement community, substance abuse treatment providers, prevention agencies and other stake holders.

We have joined prevention, treatment and law enforcement in a united effort to confront this epidemic and we
have made great strides. As we plan for the future, we know the success of our initiatives depends on the
involvement and support of our communities. We must tap into the resources of our families, local leadership
and citizens to help reach our goals.

Although there is much to do on the substance abuse front, we have only just begun to make progress and
will continue to do so with your support and that of the General Assembly.


                                             Van Ingram
                                             Executive Director

Executive Summary
During the 2006 General Assembly, the Office of Drug Control Policy was enabled as
the result of the reorganization of the Justice and Public Safety Cabinet. The enabling
legislation designates the Office of Drug Control Policy to be responsible for all matters
relating to the research, coordination, and execution of drug control policy and for the
management of state and federal grants including but not limited to the prevention and
treatment related to substance abuse. By December 31 of each year, the Office of Drug
Control Policy shall review, approve, and coordinate all current projects of any
substance abuse program which is conducted by or receives funding through agencies
of the executive branch. This oversight shall extend to all substance abuse programs
which are principally related to the prevention or treatment, or otherwise targeted at the
reduction of substance abuse in the Commonwealth.

This report is intended to fulfill the statutory obligation listed above.

As this report reflects there are many on going projects throughout state government
attempting to prevent and diminish substance abuse.

The majority of the programs are administered by the Division of Mental Health and
Substance Abuse in the Cabinet of Health and Family Services. There are prevention
and enforcement programs throughout the Justice and Public Safety Cabinet as well as
the Alcoholic Beverage Control division. This report highlights the successful ongoing
efforts of the Kentucky Agency for Substance Abuse Policy, law enforcement, and all
other state agencies addressing substance abuse crisis.

       paramount to the reduction of demand

Overarching Goals

      Establish multi-jurisdictional enforcement efforts that contain a local, state and
       coordinate, and when possible, integrate publicly funded prevention, treatment
       and enforcement efforts

      Reduce the demand for illicit drugs in Kentucky

      Reduce the supply of illicit drugs in Kentucky

      Promote the implementation of evidence-based strategies that target youth and

       other drug use/abuse initiatives

Prescription drug abuse by teens is just one emerging drug trend.

Every year, people find new and often very dangerous ways to get high.

Abuse and deaths are up. The national trends are worrisome. We need more prevention,
intervention and treatment services.

Epidemiologists study the origins, spread and control of diseases, in a public health model. In
the field of substance abuse, they track changes in patterns of drug use, including the incidence
and prevalence of the use of specific drugs, characteristics of users and emerging trends.

In addition to intentional abuse of prescription drugs by teens, closer to home we see the
following trends in Kentucky.

      Domestic production of methamphetamine is back on the rise across the nation and
       Kentucky is no exception. There were nearly 100 clandestine labs in Jefferson County
      A trend has developed involving hundreds of Kentuckians traveling to South Florida to
       obtain painkillers.
      This problem is compounded due to the large number of pain clinics in South Florida and
       the states lack of a prescription monitoring program.
      Northeast Kentucky is identified by SAMSHA as having one of the highest rates of non-
       medical use of painkillers in the nation by persons 12 and over.
      Cocaine remains a major threat in urban areas.
      Heroin availability is increasing in certain urban areas.
      Drug trafficking organizations headed by Mexican Nationals continue to flourish in many
       parts of Kentucky.
      A new trend of synthetic drugs emerged in early 2010. Legislation was passed to ban
       salvia and synthetic marijuana in the 2010 session. We expect to ban two new synthetic
       drugs in 2011 that mimic the affects of methamphetamine and ecstacy.

Experts don't know exactly why the non-medical use of prescription drugs is increasing among
teens. According to the national household survey, abuse of prescription pain relievers is
second only to marijuana use.

The availability of drugs is probably one reason. Doctors are prescribing more drugs for more
health problems and online pharmacies make it easy to get prescription drugs without a
prescription, even for teenagers. Vicodin, OxyContin and Xanax are among the drugs that are
most likely to be abused.

The primary reasons for abusing prescription pain relievers are their widespread availability and
easy access.

Many teens also believe they are safer than street drugs, that painkillers are not addictive and
that there is less shame attached to using prescription drugs as compared to using drugs like
heroin or cocaine.

It looks like dried herbs, it is packaged and sold as incense however when smoked the
effect is strikingly similar to Marijuana. It is called K2, MOJO, Black Magic, Blue Lotus,
Spice, and scores of other names. It is marketed on the internet and in tobacco shops
and convenient stores across the Commonwealth.
Synthetic marijuana, sold as K2 or Spice, is an herbal substance sold as an incense or
smoking material that remains legal in most of the country. The products contain one or
more synthetic compounds that behave similarly to the primary psychoactive constituent
of             marijuana,             Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol           or           THC.

The compound most commonly found in these products is a chemical first synthesized
by the well-known Clemson University Prof John W Huffman: the eponymous JWH-018.
Another compound, found in Spice products sold in Germany, is an analog of CP-
47,497, a cannabinoid developed by Pfizer over 20 years ago.

This sign that hung outside a Louisville Kentucky tobacco shop demonstrates who this
substance is being marketed to. Advertisements brag that their customers can have the
same affect as a marijuana high without the hassle or worry of passing a blood or urine

Aside from the obvious problems of operating a motor vehicle or machinery while under
the influence of this substance there are other issues as well. The dried herbs are
merely the vehicle used to spray the chemicals on to produce the marijuana like affect.
There is apparently no oversight to determine dosing levels. According to studies at
Clemson and Hebrew Universities often times the chemicals found in these substances
are more potent than typical THC levels found in marijuana.

Thanks to people like Chief Milton Perry in Oak Grove, Kentucky legislators learned of
this emerging threat during the 2010 legislative session and Kentucky law enforcement
will have the tools to deal with the issue later this year.

House Bill 265 Create new sections of KRS Chapter 218A to prohibit possession of,
trafficking in, and cultivation of synthetic cannabinoid agonists or piperazines and
impose penalties;

(1) A person is guilty of trafficking in synthetic cannabinoid agonists or
piperazines when he or she knowingly and unlawfully traffics in synthetic
cannabinoid agonists or piperazines.
(2) Trafficking in synthetic cannabinoid agonists or piperazines is a Class
A Misdemeanor.

(1) A person is guilty of possession of synthetic cannabinoid agonists or
piperazines when he or she knowingly and unlawfully possesses synthetic
cannabinoid agonists or piperazines.

(2) Possession of synthetic cannabinoid agonists or piperazines is a
Class B misdemeanor.

(1)   A person is guilty of synthetic cannabinoid agonists or piperazines
      manufacture when he or she knowingly manufactures synthetic cannabinoid

     agonists or piperazines.

(2) Synthetic cannabinoid agonists or piperazines manufacture is a Class
A misdemeanor.

"Synthetic cannabinoid agonists or piperazines" means any chemical
compound              that           contains             Benzylpiperazine;
Trifluoromethylphenylpiperazine;                     1,1-Dimethylheptyl-11-
hydroxytetrahydrocannabinol; 1-Butyl-3-(1-naphthoyl)indole; 1-Pentyl-3-(1-
naphthoyl)indole; dexanabinol; or 2-[(1R,3S)-3-hydroxycyclohexyl]-5-(2-
methyloctan-2-yl)phenol). The term shall not include synthetic cannabinoids
that require a prescription, are approved by the United States Food and
Drug Administration, and are dispensed in accordance with state and
federal law;

Piperazines (BZP)

House Bill 265 also banned piperazines. This is a club drug with effects similar to
Ecstacy and amphetamines. Originally designed to treat cattle for parasites it is
available via the internet and is used as a party drug in some parts of the country.
Although not yet widely popular in Kentucky this legislation will ban sale and possession
of BZP.


Late in the session the provisions of Senate Bill 144 an act designed to address
Drugged Driving was added to House Bill 265 as a committee substitute. This law will
create a Per Se violation for persons driving with the presence of some controlled
substances in their blood. This is a zero tolerance approach with a few exceptions. An
individual that possess a valid prescription for a controlled substance will cause the
blood test to be inadmissible. However they could still be prosecuted but the burden
shifts to the Commonwealth to prove impairment. Below is a list of substances covered
under this section. This law also lowers the aggravating factor for DUI from .18 to .15.

(12) The substances applicable to a prosecution under subsection (1)(d)
of this section are:
(a)   Any Schedule I controlled substance except marijuana;

(b)                            Alprazolam;

(c)                          Amphetamine;

(d)                          Buprenorphine;

(e)                             Butalbital;

(f)                           Carisoprodol;

(g)                             Cocaine;

(h)                            Diazepam;

(i)                           Hydrocodone;

(j)                          Meprobamate;

(k)                            Methadone;

(l)                        Methamphetamine;

(m)                            Oxycodone;

(n)                          Promethazine;

(o)                        Propoxyphene; and

(p)                             Zolpidem.

This law contained an Emergency Clause that made it affective upon Governor
Beshear’s signing of this law in mid April.

Law Enforcement – Drug Task Forces
Kentucky’s law enforcement community continued to perform at a high level during
2010. The Office of Drug Control Policy was instrumental in bringing law enforcement
agencies together to share intelligence, resources and collaborate on significant drug

The Kentucky Justice and Public Safety Cabinet also provides grant funding for 14
multi-jurisdictional drug task forces. During 2010, standards, model policies and best
practices for drug task force operations continued to be evaluated and reviewed and
ensure program compliance. ODCP’s Compliance Branch, in conjunction with the
Grant’s Management Branch, conducted annual audits and on-site inspections with all
grant recipients and ensure program compliance.

Many of Kentucky’s police departments and sheriff’s offices conduct drug investigations
on a daily basis. Although they may not be part of a formalized drug task force, there is
still a great deal of collaboration and cooperation that occurs between federal, state and
local agencies. Many local law enforcement agencies have detectives assigned
exclusively to formalized drug task forces. This section highlights the agencies and
their contributions to drug enforcement.

Kentucky’s Drug Task Forces have been instrumental in reducing the manufacturing of
methamphetamine in rural and urban areas, reducing the illegal distribution of
prescription drugs and the growth and distribution of marijuana.

Law Enforcement – Partnerships
The Office of Drug Control Policy has many partners at the state, local and federal
levels of enforcement. Without effective partnerships, the drug enforcement initiatives
would suffer in efficiency. The opportunity to share manpower, information and
resources is invaluable to successful operations. The ODCP works very closely with all
of the partners listed below.

●Drug Enforcement Administration

The United States Department of Justice, DEA is the primary federal law enforcement
agency in the United States charged with enforcing federal narcotic laws.

●Appalachia HIDTA

Appalachia HIDTA (High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area) was designated in 1998
through ONDCP. Since then, participating agencies from the 68 HIDTA counties in
Kentucky, Tennessee and West Virginia have worked together to coordinate drug
suppression activities. Kentucky has 27 of the 68 HIDTA counties.

●Multi-Jurisdictional Drug Task Forces

The Office of Drug Control Policy oversees and, in part, funds the network of 14 drug
task force program across the Commonwealth. Drug Task Forces currently cover 61
counties and serves 2.7 million citizens.

●Kentucky State Police Methamphetamine Response Program

KSP continues to be the lead law enforcement agency in the Commonwealth
instrumental in the dismantling of clandestine methamphetamine laboratories. KSP has
also provided funding, training, equipment, supplies and overtime to certified clan lab
response personnel on state, county and local levels.

●Governor’s Marijuana Strike Task Force (Kentucky State Police Marijuana
Suppression Program)

Kentucky is one of the top source states for the cultivation of very high quality domestic
marijuana. This marijuana is a contributory factor for its desirability as an export
product. In attacking a drug problem that affects an entire region of the nation,
Kentucky’s Marijuana Suppression Program has become an integral part of the National
Drug Strategy and as such, has continued to receive nationwide acclaim.

●Kentucky State Police Rural Drug Suppression Program

The Rural Drug Suppression Program of the Kentucky State Police is comprised of at
least one detective from each of the 16 State Police posts from around the state who
conduct street level narcotic enforcement within the post area. In addition, detectives
from Drug Enforcement Special Investigation East Section and West Section are also
assigned to the program as needed. KSP detectives work cooperative narcotic
investigations with most local agencies within their post areas as well as federal law
enforcement agencies who may adopt state cases for federal prosecution.

●Alcoholic Beverage Control

ABC is charged to protect the public welfare and interest by regulating the alcohol
beverage industry. The enforcement, education and legal divisions of ABC oversee
licensing, provide training to people employed in the alcoholic beverage industry and
enforce the laws and regulations of the Commonwealth pertaining to alcohol and
tobacco violations. The enforcement and education divisions have also partnered in a
new awareness program to prevent access and use of alcohol and tobacco products by

Law Enforcement – MethCheck
On July 10, 2007 the Kentucky Department of Corrections expanded a contract they
held with APPRISS, a Louisville based company to provide the statewide VINE,
JusticeXchange system. The contract included a pilot program to electronically monitor
the sales of pseudoephedrine (PSE) in pharmacies in Laurel County, Kentucky. After
two years of study, a revision of the original contract was approved by Finance and this
program went into effect statewide on June 1, 2008. This project is a partnership
between the Office of Inspector General Professional Standards Branch and the
Cabinet for Health and Family Services and the Kentucky Office of Drug Control Policy.
Funding for the first year of this project was provided by the KASPER program.

Kentucky became the second state to implement a real-time statewide electronic
monitoring system capable of blocking the sale of pseudoephedrine products to
individuals in violation of purchasing more than 9 grams in 30 days. It also provides
24/7 access to law enforcement officers conducting investigations on individuals
suspected of violations of PSE restrictions. The Office of Drug Control Policy is
required to respond to calls from pharmacies and customers during regular business
hours. In the first 7 months of operation the system blocked over 10,000 attempts to
violate PSE restrictions resulting in over 30,000 grams of PSE kept out of the hands of
potential meth cooks.

Continuing education and training are invaluable tools for the KY-ASAP and its 75 local
boards. During 2010, KY-ASAP attended or provided many training opportunities.
These training experiences are as follows:

●2010 Kentucky Narcotic Officer’s Conference

The 5th Annual Narcotic Officer’s Conference was held in Louisville on November 1-3 ,
2010. Sponsors of the event were ODCP, Kentucky Narcotic Officers’ Association,
Jefferson County Sheriffs Department, Appalachia HIDTA, KASPER, Kentucky State
Police and the Regional Organized Crime Information Center.               Nearly 300
representatives of law enforcement throughout the state attended.

The conference featured Dave Redmann providing instruction on undercover
operations. As well as Justice Cabinet Secretary J. Michael Brown discussing potential
changes to the Controlled Substances Act in the 2011 legislative session and Rob
Bovett an Oregon prosecutor that discussed pseudoephedrine restrictions. Local, state
and federal law enforcement agencies were represented at the conference.

An award for Narcotic Officer of the Year was presented to Kentucky State Police
Detective Scott Mcintosh. A leadership award for his contribution to drug enforcement
was also given to Appalachian HIDTA Director Frank Rapier.

●KY-ASAP Local Board Sharing Workshops

The Office of Drug Control Policy and Ky-ASAP co-hosted a series of 6 regional
information sharing workshops across the Commonwealth requesting each local board
send members of their board to share a presentation on the successful policies and/or
programs implemented in their community, along with any obstacles faced, obstacles
overcome, how those programs were received in the community as well as the
sustainability of the program.

We also wanted to provide training, consultation, and networking to local boards to
assist them in engaging relevant members of the community. The workshops provided
an opportunity to compile local boards’ ideas and issues for action by the agency and
the KY-ASAP State Board, with feedback to the local board:

The 6 Regional Workshops are as follows:

      Franklin County
      Hardin County

      Pulaski County
      Perry County
      Fleming County
      Lyon County

In conclusion, the Ky Office of Drug Control Policy and KY-ASAP cannot stress enough
that the local boards are dedicated, effective, valuable, but most of all, successful. They
are an excellent community tool and a much needed component in education,
preventing, treating and enforcing substance as part of a comprehensive prevention
program. The Office of Drug Control Policy and KY-ASAP is excited and eager to
continue to provide these update trainings in 2011.

●Trainings Attended

In addition to providing training, the Office of Drug Control Policy and KY-ASAP has
attended training in an effort to maintain continuing education and knowledge as it
relates to substance abuse prevention, treatment and law enforcement initiatives.
Trainings attended in 2008 are as follows:

      Kentucky Prevention Network Conference. This conference allowed the Office of
       Drug Control Policy and KY-ASAP staff to attend workshops designed to inform
       about prescription drug diversion, utilizing the faith based community in
       successful prevention efforts, legislative advocacy techniques, coalition building,
       managing change, and affecting positive underage drinking initiatives outcomes.

      In Depth Technical Assistance/National Center on Substance Abuse & Child
       Welfare.    The National Center on Substance Abuse and Child Welfare
       (NCSACW) is an initiative of the Department of Health and Human Services and
       jointly funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services
       Administration's (SAMHSA) Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) and
       the Administration on Children, Youth and Families (ACYF), Children's Bureau's
       Office on Child Abuse and Neglect (OCAN). The IDTA is focused on improving
       outcomes for families with parental substance use disorders who are involved in
       the child welfare and family court systems by strengthening collaboration and
       linkages across alcohol and other drugs services, child welfare and family courts
       to achieve improved outcomes for children and families. It is being provided only
       to select states that demonstrate a sufficient level of readiness and capacity to
       engage in a significant system change initiative.      Kentucky was accepted in
       March of 2010 to begin IDTA.

    drug abuse, dating violence, the choking game & sexting and cyberbullying.
    Keynote Speaker Steve Sroka will deliver his “Teaching to a T” presentation —
    an innovative, interactive, and inspirational technique to help develop the skills
    to build relationships, partnerships and leadership. This strategy has been
    successfully used for student and staff trainings at the local, state, national, and
    international levels as well as for community and business organizations. It has
    been used successfully with the most reluctant learners and in areas with
    students with high dropout rates, as well as with in-services for the highest-level
    administrators of state departments of education and health.

Prevention – KY Agency for Substance Abuse Policy
The Kentucky Agency for Substance Abuse Policy (KY-ASAP) was created in 2000 to
develop a strategic plan to reduce the prevalence of alcohol, tobacco and other drug
use among youth and adult populations in Kentucky and coordinate efforts among state
and local agencies in the area of substance abuse prevention.

KY-ASAP has continued to evolve since its placement into the Office of Drug Control
Policy (ODCP) in 2004. KY-ASAP continues to embrace and incorporate the
philosophy of ODCP to involve the three-pronged approach of prevention, treatment
and enforcement in the area of substance abuse. During State Fiscal Year 2010, the
total funding dollars allocated were $1,923,400.00.

A key concept of KY-ASAP is policy change. Local Boards have evolved, as
envisioned, as policy makers within their communities. Many have developed initiatives
for Smoke-Free environments and worked with school systems to provide programs to
teach our youth about the dangers of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs. There are now
75 boards located in 113 counties of the Commonwealth.

The Kentucky Agency for Substance Abuse Policy is unique in that local boards
determine their own needs for their service area. Through a strategic plan and needs
assessment, the local boards identify the issues that they need to direct their dollars
toward concerning tobacco, alcohol and other drugs as related to abuse.

There are two types of boards within the structure of KY-ASAP: regional and single
county boards. Sixteen of the seventy-five boards are regional boards with remainder
being single county boards. The regional boards are mostly associated with the high
population areas of the state, with the exception of Fayette County which is a single
county board. In the majority of the single county boards, the KY-ASAP funds amount
to their only source to provide prevention and treatment of substance abuse.

Local boards are currently and have been involved in the following activities:

      Supporting Tobacco Cessation programs
      Contracting with local school districts to provide evidence-based prevention
       programs in schools
      Hosting regional youth summits which focused on tobacco and underage drinking
      Investing in Drug Courts for adults and juveniles
      Providing Meth Awareness Trainings for community members
      Payment assistant for treatment services
      Support of School Resource Officers
      Providing financial support to law enforcement for prevention efforts
      Addressing substance abuse policies at all levels

      Media Ads with alcohol, tobacco and other substance facts (locally, statewide, &
      Student generated Public Service Announcements concerning Substance Abuse
      Supported community events such as: Red Ribbon Week, Project Prom, Project
       Graduation, We Card, and Great American Ghost Out
      Collaborated with school districts and health departments to change smoking and
       drug policies at schools and provided financial support for programs such as
       Tobacco Education Groups/Tobacco Awareness Program (TEG/TAP), Teens
       Against Tobacco and Genesis Express
      Hosted Town Hall meetings to build awareness
      Preparing for community and school policy changes such as smoking
       ordinances, social host ordinances and random student drug testing
      Conducting adult and student surveys to assess the needs of their communities

Local KY-ASAP Boards also utilize the KIP (Kentucky Incentives for Prevention) survey,
among others, to collect their baseline data. The survey is conducted bi-annually in the
fall in even-numbered years, with 6th, 8th, 10th, and 12th graders attending school in most
Kentucky counties. To learn more about the KIP Survey and view the latest drug trends
among youth in Kentucky, visit the Reach of Louisville website at: In addition to the KIP survey, many local boards also
continually conduct other adult and youth surveys in an effort to ascertain the most
current and relevant community data.

●Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC)
The AOC Drug Court Department applied for and received funding for a Drug Court
team training conference through the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) in Fiscal Year
2008. This grant will allow the AOC to provide substance abuse education to team
members of each Drug Court team across the Commonwealth. In addition to applying
for BJA grant funding, the Drug Court Department collaborated with local community
mental health and substance abuse agencies in applying for national Substance Abuse
and Mental Health Services Administration grants.

The Kentucky Drug Court Executive Officer was elected to the National Association of
Drug Court Professionals (NADCP) National Board. The Drug Court Department
worked with the NADCP by participating in a NADCP Congress meeting, by working
with the NADCP National Board, by presenting at the NADCP conference and by
attending the NADCP conferences. The focus of the NADCP is to provide substance
abuse education, share model programs, research and create partnerships across the

Office of Drug Control Policy (ODCP):
The AOC, ODCP and Division of Mental Health and Substance Abuse continues to
work closely in administering a Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services
Administration (SAMHSA) grant on behalf of the AOC for a program with the Fayette
County Family Drug Court. The program was awarded funding in fiscal year 2006.

ODCP administers funds to the AOC Drug Court Department in coal producing
counties. Adult Drug Courts in 12 counties are operational through these funds. Since
inception, these programs have graduated 184 participants, have collected over
$200,000.00 in child support, restitution and court costs and as of December 31, 2008
had 176 active participants.

Justice and Public Safety Cabinet:
The Drug Court Department applied for and received a JAG grant from the Cabinet of
Justice and Public Safety. The grant, which is for expanded drug tests for Drug Court
participants, has assisted in determining if participants are using drugs that most drug
tests cannot detect.

Department of Vocational Rehabilitation:
The Drug Court Department participated in three regional trainings with the Department
of Vocational Rehabilitation. These trainings provided the Vocational Rehabilitation
staff with information concerning substance abuse and Drug Courts. Across the
Commonwealth, the Drug Court Department works daily with the Department of
Vocational Rehabilitation.

KY-ASAP continues to provide support to the AOC Drug Court programs throughout the
state. Jurisdictions have often sought and received assistance through KY-ASAP for
enhanced funding for the basic essentials of Drug Court, drug testing and treatment.
KY-ASAP local boards also provide a variety of assistance to Drug Court programs,
ranging from providing transportation for participants, to purchasing graduation items,
assisting with resources, or assisting with education about alcohol and drugs.

Department of Mental Health and Mental Retardation Services:
The AOC Juvenile Services Department has on-going collaboration with mental health
services regarding the Global Appraisal of Individual Needs-Quick (GAIN-Q) developed
by Chestnut Health Systems to assess juveniles’ participation in Juvenile Drug Court.
The tool is utilized across agencies to identify and address substance abuse issues
and/or needs regarding treatment and services. Representatives from the Department
of Mental Health and Mental Retardation Services provide free training and technical
assistance to certify in-house staff as trainers; therefore providing sustainability within
the program.

Operation UNITE:
The AOC Drug Court Department continues to partner with Operation UNITE through
the use of Operation UNITE’s treatment vouchers, shared trainings, and collaborative
projects. Local UNITE community coalitions assist individual Drug Court programs with
a variety of needs ranging from assistance in arranging transportation to educational

Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ):
DJJ has assisted the AOC Juvenile Services Department by providing funds for pilot
juvenile programs. In Fiscal Year 2008, DJJ continued to provide funds for the
Henderson Juvenile Drug Court.

Local Government:
Several fiscal courts throughout the state continue to provide money and/or space for
Kentucky Drug Court programs in their jurisdiction. This funding pays for staff,
additional treatment and additional drug testing.

Educational Opportunities:
The AOC Department of Judicial Education, during the District Judges’ College,
presented a program that provided a general overview of mental health, procedures for
filing forms on disabilities, involuntary hospitalizations, and the procedures for
involuntary treatment for drug/alcohol abuse known as Casey’s Law.

Free or inexpensive educational opportunities were available to Drug Court staff. These
trainings were provided by the Division of Mental Health and Substance Abuse (MHSA),
University of Kentucky Institute on Women and Substance Abuse, DJJ, Operation
UNITE and Oasis.

Pretrial Services:
With monitored conditional release and diversion programs, the AOC Department of
Pretrial Services uses various methods to identify substance abuse issues of pretrial
clients. Pretrial Services use a combination of standardized screening instruments, past
criminal history and referrals to community providers to determine treatment needs of
each client.

Based on the assessment, a recommendation is made to the court for consideration of
release from jail with the condition of obtaining a substance abuse evaluation by a
licensed treatment facility or obtaining treatment. In some cases, drug testing along
with treatment is recommended. If approved by the court, the Pretrial Officer meets with
the client and provides him or her with a list of licensed treatment providers in the
region. Pretrial Services then monitors compliance with the treatment conditions and/or
drug testing until final disposition of the client's court case.

In 2008, the AOC Department of Pretrial Services partnered with the Department of
Corrections to pilot a pre-conviction substance abuse treatment program within the
county jails. The pilot counties are Christian, Marion and Powell.

●Kentucky Department for Public Health

The Kentucky Tobacco Control Program models its programs and policies on Center for
Disease Control’s (CDC) Best Practices while striving to overcome the cultural legacy of
tobacco (as a key agricultural product) in Kentucky. Some key events since 2000

include a 27 cent increase in the state’s cigarette excise tax in 2005 (the first in 30
years); state buildings (under the Executive Branch) went smoke-free August 2006;
Kentucky’s Tobacco Quit Line operational in 2005; state employee health plan began
covering nicotine replacement therapy and Chantix in 2006; 21 municipalities passed
smoke-free laws since 2004; youth (current) smoking has declined significantly since
2000 – middle school declined 56% from 22% to 9.7% and high school 28% from 37%
to 26.8%. There has been no significant decline in adult current smoking (28.2% in
2007); the highest percentage in the United States.

During state fiscal year 2008, activities included:

► Contracted with Lexington-Fayette County Health Department to participate in
National Minority Health month activities and to send two people to the National African
American Tobacco Education Network’s April conference. The attendees will use
information from the conference to develop a tobacco cessation pilot project in African
American churches. The Tobacco Control Program also partnered with the Louisville
African American Think Tank to hold a Health Summit (February 8-9) focused on
physical activity, nutrition, and tobacco prevention and cessation.

► GIFTS (Giving Infants and Families Tobacco Free Starts). The Adult and Child
Health Improvement Division (DPH) and the Tobacco Prevention and Cessation
Program. Case Managers in nine Eastern Kentucky counties are coaching pregnant
women on healthy lifestyles especially to stop smoking. The initial funding came from
the Anthem Foundation. The Tobacco Program supplemented the grant with funds for
printing, training, carbon monoxide monitors, and incentives.

► The Kentucky School Leader, a publication of the Kentucky Association of School
Administrators, Winter 2007-2008, included an article submitted by a staff member of
the Tobacco Control Program entitled “Tobacco-free Schools…How to Stomp Out the

► Strategic Planning. A group of twenty-seven people representing local, state, and
national organizations participated in a 2-day workshop to develop a 5-year strategic
plan for tobacco control in Kentucky. The plan is based on CDC’s Best Practices for
State Tobacco Control Programs and Kentucky specific data and political climate. The
information was compiled and a draft circulated to participants for review. The final draft
will be completed and published this fall.

► Tobacco Control Program staff participated in a Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary
Disease (COPD) Summit and Strategic Planning meeting in May. Tobacco use is the
primary cause of COPD.

► Tobacco Control Program staff participated in a one-day Asthma Strategic Planning
meeting in August. Approximately thirty people participated in writing goals and
objectives for asthma management.

► Presented at the Association of Maternal and Child Health Programs office in
Washington, DC. The presentation was a grant progress report on a pilot project to
increase obstetricians’ awareness of the link between prematurity and smoking,
increase their “ask, advice, refer” and referrals to Kentucky’s Tobacco Quit Line.
Kentucky was one of three states funded for a project to reduce pregnant smoking.

► Staff participated in UK Leadership Exchange for communities participating in a grant
project to build capacity for smoke-free policy. The Exchange was in Lexington and
featured progress reports, panel discussions, and breakouts. Twenty-two counties are
participating in the project.

► Staff attended the CDC Summer Leadership Institute in July. Courses included: Best
Practices, Secondhand Smoke A to Z, Health Communications, Evaluation, and Public
Health Law.

► Staff participated in an Appalachian Forum on Cancer at Renfro Valley in September.
Forty-eight community and state leaders reviewed data from the Kentucky Cancer
Registry, learned about best practice programs, and brainstormed on how Appalachia-
specific strategies might be included in the Kentucky Cancer Action Plan.

●Kentucky Department of Education (KDE)

During Fiscal Year 2010, KDE no longer provided Title IV funding and
technical assistance to our 174 school districts, due to the inactivation of the
title program. Title IV funding was used in the past to purchase and/or
implement research-based programs shown to be effective in reducing
behaviors in young people in regards to drug, alcohol and violence. The Ky.
General Assembly still provides safe school funding to KDE for the Ky.
Center for School Safety to distribute safe school flexible focus funds to all
174 districts.

●Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC)

The Alcoholic Beverage Control agency report can be found in the Cabinet Report entry
located on page 45 herein.

●American Cancer Society

The American Cancer Society is a voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating
cancer death and suffering through research, education, advocacy and patient support
services. Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related death in both men and
women in Kentucky with nearly 3,500 people dying this year alone. With smoking linked

directly to lung cancer, the American Cancer Society works to impact this most
preventable cause of death in our society.

In association with key partners, the American Cancer Society works to change state
and federal policies to decrease the numbers of tobacco related deaths. Some of the
most effective tactics advocated for include an increase in state tobacco taxes to reduce
youth smoking and smoke-free local laws to protect all workers from the dangers of
secondhand smoke.

The American Cancer Society also works to enact comprehensive tobacco control
policies and cessation programs including education efforts to help people kick the
tobacco habit and support services, like the Quit Line. For those diagnosed with cancer
after smoking, the organization offers an array of patient support services so cancer
patients can cope with the disease and its treatment.

●American Heart Association

The American Heart Association is a voluntary health organization dedicated to
reducing death and disability due to heart disease and stroke. Because tobacco use is
one of the major risk factors for heart disease and stroke, preventing and reducing
tobacco use among children and adults is one of the association’s top priorities. Our
efforts in this area primarily take the form of advocacy initiatives to promote policy and
environmental changes that will have a positive impact on tobacco use and initiation.

The American Heart Association works with the American Lung Association, the
American Cancer Society, the Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids and other key partners
on all tobacco related advocacy activities. Policy initiatives are based on best practices
guidelines for comprehensive tobacco prevention and cessation programs.

Raising the price of cigarettes is the single, most effective method for reducing youth
smoking. As such, the American Heart Association supports raising the tobacco excise
tax. Other tobacco related policy initiatives include supporting local communities’ rights
to enact local smoke-free policies that protect public health, funding to support a
comprehensive state tobacco control program and advocating for Medicaid coverage of
smoking cessation programs.

Public awareness and education regarding the health hazards of tobacco use is
integrated into the association’s program activities as well. This includes Get With the
Guidelines, the organization’s premier hospital based quality improvement program and
Go Red for Women, our national movement that empowers women to prevent heart
disease and lead healthy lives.

●American Lung Association

The American Lung Association is dedicated to preventing lung disease and promoting
lung health. Founded in 1904 to fight Tuberculosis, the American Lung Association is
America’s oldest nonprofit voluntary health organization.        The American Lung
Association carries out its mission using three basic strategies: education, advocacy
and research. Considering that tobacco use is the most preventable cause of lung
disease in our culture, the American Lung Association works closely with key partners
to change local, state and federal policies to decrease the numbers of tobacco related

The American Lung Association’s policy goals in this area are based on best practice
guidelines for comprehensive tobacco prevention and cessation programs and primarily
take the form of advocacy. Raising the price of tobacco products through state excise
taxes, increasing the funding for tobacco cessation and prevention activities, supporting
smoke-free initiatives and promoting coverage of smoking cessation efforts within the
Medicaid population are key campaigns for the American Lung Association.

Public education plays a prominent role in achieving our policy goals. The American
Lung Association provides a free call center to answer questions regarding lung health
and provide counseling on quitting smoking. The American Lung Association also
assists a network of support groups around the state for people and their families who
are dealing with chronic lung disease. Finally, the American Lung Association offers a
variety of school based programs for youth and continuing education opportunities for
health care professionals to ensure the most up to date information is available on lung
health issues.

●Christian Appalachian Project (CAP)

The Christian Appalachian Project is an inter-denominational, non-profit Christian
organization committed to serving people in need in Appalachia by providing physical,
spiritual and emotional support through a wide variety of programs and services.
Headquartered in Hagerhill, Kentucky, CAP is the nation’s 12th largest human services
charity providing direct human services to thousands of eastern Kentuckians living in

The Christian Appalachian Project’s programs focus on three primary populations: the
elderly, disabled and children. Programs range in nature from child and family
development centers for children and their families, to adult education, elderly support
and visitation, care and respite for the disabled, home repair and construction, summer
camps, spouse abuse shelters and victims advocacy.

The Christian Appalachian Project plays an increasing role in addressing the substance
abuse crisis in eastern Kentucky through its residential substance abuse recovery

program, which it hopes to expand over the next several months. The program, located
in Rockcastle County, primarily serves Appalachian Kentucky. Additionally, CAP’s
strong and diverse programming base and broad service area provide a unique
infrastructure of support for those facing the multi-faceted problems related to re-entry
into society following treatment. CAP is also working to establish resources and
networks in order to foster cooperation among similar recovery service providers, as
well as to facilitate and/or support efforts of government agencies, namely KY-ASAP.

●Kentucky Family Resource Youth Services Coalition (FRYSCKy)

The Family Resource and Youth Services Coalition of Kentucky (FRYSCKy) is a non-
profit organization of professionals (including educators and human services providers)
who come together to provide legislative advocacy, training and support for Family
Resource and Youth Services Centers Coordinators and their staff in Kentucky. The
goal of the Coalition is to promote a network that strives to remove barriers to success
in school through learning from each other, sharing resources and collaborating more
effectively on behalf of children, youth and families.

Presently 820 Family Resource Youth Service Centers (FRYSC) serve Kentucky
schools on a daily basis to assist in removing non-cognitive barriers to education
including many suffering directly or indirectly from illegal drug use.    Such services
could range from providing basic needs for children whose parent has spent the
family’s money on drugs, to referring teens for treatment, to assisting with referrals for
on-going support. Specific programs vary from center to center.

In addition to services of intervention, FRYSCs also provide prevention efforts in the
schools and community. Numerous assembly programs, student clubs, informational
newsletters and brochures and anti-drug and alcohol and anti-tobacco educational
efforts are provided on an on-going basis by FRYSCs throughout Kentucky. During
Red Ribbon Week, many centers concentrate their efforts on bringing students’
attention to ways to avoid illegal drug and alcohol usage and highlight the harm of
tobacco usage. These efforts focus on prevention and securing a commitment from
students to never engage in such harmful activities. Centers also provide numerous
opportunities for students to engage in positive behaviors and activities ranging from
service clubs to a focus on improving personal self-esteem.

The FRYSCKy facilitates the implementation of both prevention and intervention
programs through providing training for coordinators concerning the implementation of
these programs in their centers. Through direct services, collaboration with other
community agencies and appropriate referrals, FRYSCKy continues its ongoing
commitment to assist students and families on a daily basis with the effects of
substance abuse issues.

Prevention – Partnership for a Drug-Free Kentucky
Partnership for a Drug-Free Kentucky

Beginning January 2008 the Kentucky Office of Drug Control Policy (ODCP) became an affiliate
member with the Partnership for a Drug-Free America.

The Office of Drug Control Policy in collaboration with the Partnership for a Drug-Free America
continues its statewide PSA campaign to bring professionally produced localized media
messages to supportive media partners in a sustained effort to reduce the incidence of
substance abuse in the Commonwealth. Our collaboration with the Partnership for a Drug Free
America continues to bring over $6 million in professionally produced PSAs.

The tremendous benefits that we receive from the Partnership allow us to counter any and all
negative messages with positive prevention strategies. This is an excellent opportunity for a
positive story on another initiative KY-ASAP & the ODCP is doing to support the reduction of
youth & adult substance use.

Addiction is the single greatest preventable illness in the country, and like other diseases, it
affects not just the person with the illness but also family and friends. Parents are more pressed
for time than ever, and in addition to finding the time to talk with their children about the health
risks of drugs and alcohol, they tell us they need new information, tools, support and help on
what to say and do.

Because our mission is to serve as a leader and catalyst for improving the health and safety of
all Kentuckians by promoting strategic approaches and collaboration to reduce drug use and
related crime this is a perfect opportunity for the ODCP/KY-ASAP to collaborate and be apart of
such an important and proactive issue.

ODCP/KY-ASAP continues to take advantage of the many collaborative opportunities and
outreach responsibilities it has to share our mission regarding prevention, treatment, and law
enforcement. It is necessary for us to be able to disseminate that information statewide. Some
of the exciting initiatives that have moved this project to the next level and reaching more people
in the Commonwealth are……

      AdSpace Mall Network – Fayette Mall
      UL Student Center Digital Signage Network
      UK Student Center Digital Signage Network
      National Cinemedia Theatres (Louisville, Lexington, Paducah, Richmond)
      Great Escape Theatres (Bowling Green, Madisonville)
      ScreenVision Theatres (Harlan, Hopkinsville, Maysville, Florence)

The partnership allows ODCP access to millions of dollars worth of professionally produced
Public Service Announcements to run on television, radio, as well as newsprint and billboards.

The PSA’s are powerful prevention messages that have gotten excellent media coverage this
past year and have been an excellent opportunity for a positive story on another initiative the
ODCP is doing to reduce substance abuse.

Parents and children are inundated with media messages about drug use and abuse among
celebrities and major sports figures. The benefits we receive from these PSA’s allowed ODCP
to counter those negative messages with positive prevention messages.

Research has shown if a child hears or sees 1 anti-drug message a day they are 38% less likely
to use drugs.

When a parent is talking to a child about drugs on a regular basis, the child is 52% less likely to
use drugs.

Over the past year we have distributed the PSA’s to over 300 hundred media outlets across the
state and have been aired thousands of times. In the Frankfort area alone for a three month
period, the PSA’s were aired over five thousand times.

ODCP has also collaborated with the local KY-ASAP boards across the Commonwealth to
assist us in the distribution of the powerful PSA’s to make sure the message is spread out
across Kentucky.

Not only are the PSA’s airing on local television stations, they are being played by various
media sources such as:

All Cable Networks
In-School Television Stations (Elementary, Middle, & High Schools)
Weekend Friday Night Flick Events
Radio Stations & Local Newspapers

ODCP feels very encouraged and inspired with our ability to make a difference.

The project recognized the demands on time to the classroom teacher and utilized the
consultant/trainer model. Resources were used, not to add to the workload of school
personnel, but to hire and train consultants to work within the schools and serve as
guest instructors for the classroom teachers.
The program is ten weeks long and delivered by staff trained in the “Too Good for
Drugs” curriculum, a comprehensive school-based program developed by the Mendez
Foundation. The evidence-based curriculum in based on the factors identified as critical
for young people’s successful growth and development. The elementary version of the
program offers ten sequential and developmentally appropriate lessons, delivered in an
interactive style.
The Evaluation Report produced by REACH of Louisville indicates that students
receiving the “Too Good for Drugs” curriculum in the fifth grade made statistically
significant gains in their knowledge, skills and perceptions about alcohol, tobacco and
other drug use as measured by their pre– and post– test surveys. Positive gains were
made across four of the five protective factors. Strong effects were also noted in the
skills related to analyzing media messages and peer refusal strategies.

Treatment – Recovery Kentucky
In 2006, construction was begun on the planned Recovery Kentucky facilities. Six of the
proposed ten facilities are in operation. Women’s facilities are open in Boone, Henderson,
Madison, Christian and Harlan Counties. The men’s facility in Rowan County is open and
operating and construction has begun on men’s programs in Kenton and Daviess Counties.

The purpose of this initiative is to create ten 100 bed recovery facilities across the state with 2
located in each rural congressional district. Each facility will be gender specific. Funding for
this project is a creative collaboration between the Kentucky Housing Corporation, The
Governor’s Office for Local Development and the Department of Corrections.

Recovery Kentucky facilities are based on the recovery model developed in Kentucky by The
Healing Place in Louisville. This model is based on concepts of mutual help – one addict
helping another addict to find a path to recovery. These programs combine the opportunity of
housing and safety to homeless while addressing the most common cause of homelessness
which is drug and alcohol addiction. The Healing Place is a nationally recognized model which
has been replicated in several other areas including the Hope Center in Lexington. These
programs are effective, cost efficient and inclusive for nearly all who request their services.

In 2004, the Office of Drug Control Policy was allocated funding to develop substance abuse
recovery programs in local jails across the Commonwealth. Nine programs were funding as
pilots in the initial round of funding. In the 2008 General Assembly, funding was appropriated
to the Department of Corrections to provide residential services in the existing fourteen jail sites
and to expand to approximately ten more counties. The Department of Corrections is currently
providing residential substance abuse recovery services to state inmates housed in the
following county jails:

Breckinridge             Christian                 Clark                    Daviess
Floyd                    Grayson                   Hardin**                 Hopkins
Kenton*                  Marion                    Mason                    Pike**
Powell                   Three Forks

In addition to the programs in local jails, the Department of Corrections also offers programs in
six correctional institutions:

Green River Correctional Complex                         Luther Luckett Correctional Complex
Kentucky Correctional Institution for Women              Roederer Correctional Complex
Marion Adjustment Center                                 Otter Creek Adjustment Center

The Department of Corrections also participates in the Recovery Kentucky Initiative, purchasing
one-third of the available beds for those in the custody or monitoring of the DOC who have
substance abuse problems. The DOC also has 30 Social Service Clinicians across the state to
assist in the assessment, referrals and re-entry issues of correctional clients with substance
abuse issues.
