New Scholarships for Recovering Addicts
In a very forward-thinking move for education, Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway announced a new scholarship that aims to make it easier for students who are recovering from drug addiction to attend college. The scholarship would be aimed at any student whose academic career has been impacted by prescription drug abuse, whether as an addict themselves, or as a child of an addict, or some other way that drugs have affected them. There will be two $1,500 scholarships given away per year, with the recipients to be announced in May.
Kentucky is trying to send a message to recovering addicts, that it is possible to turn your life around and get back on track. Whether your drug of choice was prescription pills (as in the case of these scholarships), meth, heroin, Molly, marijuana, cocaine, or crack, you can change your life and accomplish more. And this is one small step towards making a positive difference in the lives of former drug addicts in Kentucky. By introducing this new scholarship, Kentucky is demonstrating its commitment to helping people in a tangible way.
And though a scholarship is a great thing for recovering drug addicts, don't forget that before that step can be taken, there needs to be a good program of treatment available. An effective drug treatment program, often best applied at a drug treatment center, is by far the best way to kick the habit. So give Retreat at Lancaster County a call.
