Union Co. awarded state grant for substance abuse

UNION CO., KY (WFIE) -

Union County’s Agency for Substance Abuse Policy just got a $20,000 grant from Kentucky.

That money will go to opiate and heroin awareness and prevention. The group will open up a conversation between medical experts, business stakeholders, law enforcement agencies, first responders, and school staff.

The money will also be used to buy “Sharps” containers for law enforcement to dispose of needles.
