COVINGTON, Ky. (AP) — A collaborative approach to fight the rise of heroin in northern Kentucky has made strides and is getting attention.
The Kentucky Enquirer reports officials in Ohio and Kentucky are looking at the region for ideas of how to fight the epidemic.
Adam Caswell, vice president of public affairs for the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, says the area is using "an unprecedented collaborative approach" in fighting the drug.
The Northern Kentucky Heroin Impact and Response Workgroup formed last year and includes leaders in business and family medicine, police officers and firefighters, treatment advocates and residents.
