Kansas Drug Use Trends
The state of Kansas is located in the Midwest portion of the U.S., and is one of the most productive agricultural states in the nation. Kansas produces extremely high yields of corn, wheat, sorghum and sunflowers, and is the 15th most extensive state in the U.S. The state is also faced with problems of substance abuse, which affects all residents in one way or another. Quality drug treatment solutions are available, but some residents don't know how to get help or which program is right for them. It is also important for loved ones to understand the statistics and information regarding substance abuse in their state, so they can grasp the scope of the problem and act when they see that someone in their lives is struggling with any type of substance abuse issue.
Alcohol is the most commonly consumed substance of abuse in the state of Kansas. It is estimated that 13.1% of adults aged 18 years and older in Kansas report binge drinking in the past 30 days. Binge drinking in particular amongst Kansans is directly related to acute alcohol deaths as well as alcohol related motor vehicle deaths in the state. Additionally, around 4% of adults aged 18 years and older in Kansas are classified as heavy drinkers, and 54.7% of High School Seniors in the state report drinking alcohol in the past 30 days. This begins at a very early age among Kansas residents, with an estimated 1 in 10 youth in 6th grade reporting alcohol consumption in the past 30 days and 1 in 4 Kansas youth trying alcohol before the age of 13.
The consequences are evident, with nearly 21% of Kansans in the 18-25 years age group meeting the criteria for alcohol dependence or abuse, and the age-adjusted death rate for acute alcohol intoxication in Kansas being nearly twice the national average. Additionally, the death rate from chronic liver disease in Kansas has increased over the past 5 years, with the death rate among individuals 65 years and older being extremely higher than all other age groups.
Drug and alcohol abuse is the most preventable underlying cause of disease and death in Kansas. In addition, illicit drug use is the cause of many criminal activities in the state with most correctional facilities already at full capacity. Marijuana is the most common illicit drug used among adults in Kansas, and residents aged 18-25 years have the highest percentage of reported marijuana use. Although, one-third of Kansas high school students reporting use of marijuana at least once in their lifetime (32.5%). The second most common substance abuse problem in Kansas is non-medical use of psychotherapeutics, specifically pain relievers. This is a problem not only facing the state of Kansas, but the entire nation, and one which has become a true epidemic with many devastating consequences. Among youth, inhalants are a very common drug of choice as well, and the second most abused drug in this age group with 11.8% reporting such use at some point in their lifetime.
So as you can see, substance abuse affects residents of all ages in Kansas, and the need for quality treatment to accommodate the treatment needs of any type of client has never been greater. This can be challenging, but feasible when one considers programs that utilize a comprehensive approach and accommodate the need for a change of environment that so many addicts benefit from when being treated for any type of addiction. Because of the unique substance abuse problems that Kansas residents face, an outpatient program although convenient is in all likelihood not going to be the best option for individuals struggling with intense physical and psychological dependency issues. This is the case with most Kansas treatment clients, who will need a place to recover away from the people and things which trigger their substance abuse. This is why inpatient programs and residential facilities which provide a comprehensive treatment curriculum to address all of the facets of addiction, not only the physical and acute manifestations, are the programs with the highest success rates in the state. Long-term programs which provide treatment for 90-120 days are most ideal, because they provide the ideal treatment length that ensures clients will be able to take the time to address anything which could compromise their abstinence when they leave rehab.
