KENTUCKY TRANSFORMATIONAL EMPLOYMENT PROGRAM
|Empowering Businesses to Give Kentuckians a Fair Chance|
|The Kentucky Transformational Employment Program (KTEP) is a new, voluntary initiative to help employers across Kentucky find and retain the workforce they need to support and grow their businesses, while giving more Kentuckians the opportunity to access treatment and achieve remission and recovery from substance use disorders.
Businesses that choose to participate in KTEP will help facilitate assessment and treatment for employees or offerees with substance use disorders. The program will be a catalyst for life-changing outcomes among people impacted by substance use, helping to reduce stigma in the workplace related to addiction, treatment and recovery. It will also strengthen Kentucky’s economy by increasing the number of employable individuals and improving talent retention at a time when we are experiencing historically low workforce participation rates.
