FindHelpNowKY.org was created by the Kentucky Injury Prevention and Research Center in partnership with the Kentucky Office of Drug Control Policy, the Kentucky Department for Behavioral Health, Developmental and Intellectual Disabilities, and the KY HELP line.
The goal of this website is to provide near-real-time availability of treatment openings for substance use disorder (SUD) facilities across Kentucky. This user-friendly and easy-to-understand online referral-based intervention can improve clinical workflow and increase timely access to SUD treatment and information.
This goal is achieved by providing SUD treatment facilities with an administrative dashboard, allowing owners and operators to create and manage a profile page for each of their locations. Each “Facility Profile” affords designated personnel the opportunity to add details such as accepted payment methods, populations served, facility policies, treatment types and availability, and over 50 other fields. To ensure the completeness and accuracy of information, facilities must request publication on the website and have their profiles reviewed by website administrators before being included in the live search results.
