Adam Edelen on Drugs
More beds in Kentucky to treat the scourge of addition
Treatment for substance abuse disorders should not be a luxury. There is a shameful lack of beds in Kentucky to treat the scourge of addition and those we do have are often inaccessible to communities that need them most. While there are costs that come
along with expanding treatment to those who are suffering, the bad actors who pushed opioids on our community should be the ones to foot the bill.

- Adam Edelen will work to ensure that funds recovered from out of the state pharmaceutical companies
who created this problem go toward community based addiction treatment.
- Expanded Drug Court: Offer a path toward recovery and for low level and first time drug offenders.
We can prevent thousands of our people from entering the criminal justice pipeline, and also help keep Kentucky families intact as one of their loved ones received the tools and skills they need.
