— AdventHealth Manchester is proud to announce that we have received $250,000 in funding from Attorney General Daniel Cameron to aid in opioid treatment and recovery efforts in Clay County, KY.
This funding is part of the historic $13.9 million announced by Attorney General Cameron and the Kentucky Opioid Abatement Advisory Commission to fight the opioid crisis. Attorney General Cameron has been at the forefront of the fight against the opioid epidemic, holding opioid companies accountable and restoring hope in communities.
Since 2019, Kentucky's drug epidemic has escalated, with overdose deaths up 60%. In the last three years alone, 7,665 Kentuckians have been lost to overdose death. General Cameron has secured over $800 million from the companies contributing to such deaths, funding the Commission's work and delivering hundreds of millions directly to Kentucky's counties and cities.
AdventHealth Manchester is grateful for this funding and is committed to using it to help build a safe and healthy future for every Kentucky family. The hospital plans to use the funding to expand its medication-assisted treatment (MAT) program, which combines medication and counseling to help patients overcome opioid addiction.
