Kentucky, along with other regions in the U.S., suffers from an addiction epidemic. While opioid misuse has assumed the face of addiction, the underlying causes and existing treatment of addiction lay a complex foundation for what has become a crisis in America, and in Kentucky. Addiction is a complex and chronic brain condition that leads to social, economic and health dysfunction.

The 2018 Bost Forum will explore addiction, focusing first on where we stand as a state and on the national stage, then delving into a more detailed examination of the underlying causes of the epidemic and how we might begin to heal our residents.


The free one-day forum will begin with a panel of experts who will discuss Kentucky’s addiction burden and the human and economic toll.
A second panel of experts from various national and state agencies will then discuss current and potential solutions to treating addiction, with Q&A from the audience.

Following these panels, we will offer three discussions narrowing the focus to specific issues raised by Kentucky’s addiction epidemic. Conference attendees may select two of the three discussions.
