RESTORE 4-11-19
A new initiative to help Kentucky’s court system better address the state's opioid epidemic was announced Thursday, April 11, 2019, by the Kentucky Court of Justice.

RESTORE (Responsive Education to Support Treatment in Opioid Recovery Efforts) is a collaborative effort between the Judicial and Executive branches of state government, along with community organizations such as Operation UNITE. The goal is to provide training and resources to the court system, as well as expand access to a full spectrum of high-quality, evidence-based opioid prevention, treatment, recovery and harm reduction services.
Those speaking at the press conference, held in the Kentucky Supreme Court chambers, were Chief Justice John D. Minton Jr.; Wendy Morris, Commissioner of the Department for Behavioral Health, Developmental and Intellectual Disabilities; Van Ingram, Executive Director of the Office of Drug Control Policy; Nancy Hale, President & CEO of Operation UNITE; Family Court Judge Janie McKenzie-Wells, 24th Judicial Circuit and RESTORE Leadership Team Member; and Shannon Adams, Medical-Surgical Unit Director at Saint Joseph-London and a Drug Court graduate.
