About the company

Welcome to the Kentucky Department of Corrections Owensboro Area Reentry Employment Services. As the area's Reentry Employment Program Administrator this office will be the point of contact for employment and coaching while justice-involved individuals navigate successful reentry into society.

Getting to the KORE of the problem

The Kentucky Opioid Response Effort (KORE) is to implement a comprehensive targeted response to Kentucky’s opioid crisis by expanding access to a full continuum of high quality, evidence-based opioid prevention, treatment, recovery, and harm reduction services and supports in high-risk geographic regions of the state. Informed by data on populations most in need.

KORE's target populations include persons who have survived an opioid-related overdose, pregnant and parenting women, justice-involved individuals, children, transition-age youth, and families.

KORE offers Kentucky an opportunity to dedicate much-needed resources to address five overarching goals:

Preventing opioid misuse and abuse; Increasing access to OUD treatment services, including Medication- Assisted Treatment; Increasing the availability of recovery support services designed to improve treatment access and retention and support long-term recovery; Increasing the availability of naloxone; and Enhancing statewide coordination and evaluation of healthcare and public safety strategies targeting opioid misuse and overdose.

A comprehensive performance assessment system will support ongoing evaluation of progress against proposed goals, objectives, and activities and guide continuous quality improvement efforts. Though a multifaceted and complex response is necessary, Kentucky’s singular focus is to end the opioid epidemic and to save lives.
