I’ve been watching the Recovery Kentucky initiative with interest. Without talking to people on the ground, it’s hard to know what to make of an initiative like this.
They’ve just published an outcome report. I looked over them quickly and was surprised to see that they appear to have had large numbers of abstinent people entering treatment. I don’t know what to make of this, but the rest of the numbers seem to make a good case for a state investing in access to treatment. At any rate, it’s good to see a state making the issue a priority.
