Alexandria’s Angels Program a Collaborative Effort to Help Curb Addiction

In this segment from Disrupting the Opioid Epidemic: A KET Forum,  KET visits the police department in Alexandria, Ky., to learn about an innovative program. Alexandria’s Angels program enlists a police social worker and a group of volunteer “angels” to personally help people enter into treatment and support them as they begin the road to long-term recovery. This clip is part of KET’s Inside Opioid Addiction initiative.
