Bloomberg Philanthropies Is Giving Kentucky $10 Million To Battle Opioid Addiction

Kentucky is getting $10 million to battle opioid addiction from Bloomberg Philanthropies, Gov. Andy Beshear announced on Wednesday.

The commonwealth is one of seven states being gifted funds to fight the opioid epidemic by former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg’s philanthropic organization.

“Winning the battle against the opioid crisis and helping Kentuckians overcome addiction is a top priority for my administration,” said Beshear in a statement. “This joint venture will allow us to further deliver the services and support our people need to achieve recovery and prevent future pain and suffering.”

Nearly 2,000 Kentuckians died of drug overdoses in 2020, an all-time high for the state and a nearly 50 percent increase over 2019’s overdose deaths.
