South Central Kentucky Drug Task Force

By Lauren Hanson | 

The South Central Kentucky Drug Task Force covers Logan, Simpson, and Butler counties.

Since it began in 2004, the Task Force has worked more than 600 cases and made around 200 arrests

Now it's working to help meth addicts recover.

The Director, Jim Devasher, says: "People who have gotten involved with meth and can't get out, you know who are addicted; we want to see them clean up their lives and get their lives straightened out."

Devasher says the five governments that support the organization are all offering money so it can provide the scholarships to Teen Challenge, an in-house treatment center.

It's also working to help reduce the problem for the next generation through education.
