Operation UNITE

A nonprofit organization

3 Donors

All donations (100%) received from Kentucky Gives Day (#GivingTuesday) will be used to support Operation UNITE's youth drug prevention and education initiatives.

Operation UNITE (Unlawful Narcotics Investigations, Treatment and Education) was created in 2003 by U.S. Congressman Harold “Hal” Rogers (KY-5th) to provide a regional, community-based anti-drug response to the prescription drug epidemic sweeping across southern and eastern Kentucky.

Currently serving a 32-county region, UNITE is engaged in numerous education, treatment and law enforcement initiatives – many with state and federal partners – designed to empower citizens groups and community leaders to no longer accept or tolerate the drug culture. This is achieved through expanding youth-focused anti-drug and education programs, community campaigns about the dangers of drugs, coordinating treatment and outreach programs for those struggling with addiction, providing support to families and friends of substance abusers, and conducting undercover narcotics investigations.

UNITE also advocates for changes in state and national legislation aimed at curbing prescription abuse and diversion.  Their programs have been heralded at many levels, including the White House.

Additionally, UNITE organizes an annual National Rx Drug Abuse & Heroin Summit – the largest national collaboration of professionals from local, state, and federal agencies, businesses, academia, clinicians, treatment providers, counselors, educators, state and national leaders, and advocates impacted by prescription drug abuse and emerging heroin crisis.
