I was fired for failing a drug test. My employer did not offer me drug treatment so i could keep my job. Can I get unemployment in the state of Kentucky?

no - they do not have to provide you with treatment after you fail a drug test

You can apply. No employment law says they HAVE to treat YOUR problem.
I'm betting this is a "NO".

Is there really some law somewhere that says if you fail employment drug testing they have to offer drug treatment? I doubt it.

No. I'm not sure why you think your employer is obliged to give you treatment.

They don't need to "offer" you drug treatment. There is no obligation for them to do so. You created your problem, you solve it.

Unemployment is for when you get laid off through no fault of your own, like the company downsizes or goes out of business. You can't get it if you got fired as a result of your own actions, like missing work, failing a drug test, etc.
