The state of Kentucky's first-ever Harm Reduction Center, in coordination with Northern Kentucky People Advocating Recovery (P.A.R.) and Tabatha's Fight, is scheduled to open in Falmouth on Saturday, October 5.

The center's main goals will be to treat addicts who suffer from the effects of opiate addiction (heroin, oxycodone, hydrocodone, morphine, oxycontin, etc.) and to offer emergency life-saving medication kits to those who are at a high-risk for overdose.
