GEORGETOWN, Ky. (FOX 56) – The Georgetown Police Department released a reminder about their alcohol and substance use treatment options following a drug bust.
According to the department, Wednesday two women were “demonstrating suspicious behavior” near a local hotel.
Officers located 9 grams of suspected methamphetamine, around 4 grams of heroin, and small bags used to traffic illicit substances. Authorities were given permission to search the women’s hotel room and found more items typical of trafficking, according to a Georgetown police Facebook post.
The department used the post to share an option to find treatment for those suffering from alcohol or substance use disorders.
“The Georgetown Police Department Operation Hope/Angel Program can help individuals suffering from alcohol/substance use disorder find appropriate treatment,” the post read.
Launched in 2016, the Angel Initiative is a completely voluntary program that allows anyone struggling with addiction to come to any KSP post and get help finding treatment.
Anyone that comes forward will not be arrested or charged with any drug violations if they participate in a treatment program. They can also safely dispose of any drugs or any paraphernalia they might have on them without being arrested.
The Georgetown Police Department said anyone looking for assistance should call 502-863-7820 before you stop by the department, 550 Bourbon St.
