CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - The federal government will provide additional help to two West Virginia counties to reduce drug abuse and drug trafficking.

Berkeley and Harrison counties are among 26 counties and cities in 11 states designated as high intensity drug trafficking areas.

Office of National Drug Control Policy acting director Michael Botticelli announced the designations on Monday.

The designation increases the counties’ access to federal resources and information sharing among federal, state and local law enforcement.

Seventeen other West Virginia counties previously were designated as high intensity drug trafficking areas.
