Drug overdose deaths have nearly tripled over the last 15 years across the country. Christian County has seen its share of drug related deaths, and Sheriff Bruce Kettlekamp wants to do something about it.

 

Kettlekamp says he is calling a meeting to talk about creating a new program in the community to help drug users.

 

Kettlekamp says one of the issues those wanting to go to rehab face is a shortage of beds where they could receive funding assistance from the government.

 

 

The biggest thing Kettlekamp says the community needs to do is find a way to get drug users better help, and that jailtime is not the answer for getting users off drugs.
