Kentucky Re-entry help information

The Re-entry Hotline is designed to provide  information, referrals, and resources to offenders upon release from prison. By providing the hotline as an option for seeking assistance, the Kentucky Department of Corrections anticipates hotline callers will: 1) abstain or decrease use of drugs/alcohol; 2) comply with laws and the stipulations of their parole to avoid revocation; and, 3) utilize information to seek resources in their communities. As a result of the program, individuals will be able to cope with the daily stresses of life and avoid substance use and criminal activity. Overall, the program will increase public safety and reduce the long-term costs associated with recidivism.
