There are different reasons why someone begins to abuse drugs or alcohol. In the state of Kansas, the Centers for Disease Control reported that the state had 531 drug-related deaths in 2020 which was a 37.2% increase from the previous year. These underlying issues or reasons why are addressed during the counseling or therapy process. However, before determining what therapy is required, most families and or drug users receive an assessment. The purpose of an assessment is to determine if there is a substance abuse problem, the extent of the addiction, and treatment is necessary. Following an assessment, the first step is detox, and then admission into either inpatient or outpatient drug rehabilitation. Aftercare treatment is also a good option and promotes long-term and long-lasting sobriety. An addiction assessment is a good starting point before detox and does help place everything in perspective. Addiction assessments in Kansas can be done within a drug rehabilitation center, or it can be an assessment done by a referral agency but regardless, this is a solid first step towards starting the drug recovery process.

This could be done in a hospital inpatient program, where a patient requires immediate assistance with their addiction or drug dependency.

Kansas Drug Use and Abuse Statistics

Per a Kansas Treatment Episode Data Set, the state reported more men than women reported abusing substances in 2019 totaling 52.2% of all treatment admissions. The main drug that was reported when entering into a treatment facility within the state was amphetamines making up nearly 50 percent of all treatment admissions. The next closest drug being abused was alcohol with marijuana trailing right behind.  New treatment admission for alcohol addiction has steadily declined for many years and though there was an increase in treatment admissions in 2016, that has reverted back to the lower number being seen across the state. From 2016 to 2019 treatment admissions declined by 4,469. 

According to a report by the National Center for Drug Abuse Statistics, 16,000 adolescents have reported abusing drugs or alcohol within the past thirty days from the survey. Of those individuals, 75% reported that the substance abuse in the past month was with marijuana. Those aged 18 to 25 made up a significant number of the drug users in the state, reporting 96,000 drug users in that age group. The report goes on to state that though individuals between the ages of 18 and 25 have made up such a large part of the state's substance abuse problem, drug use in this age group is actually 6.91% less than the average American in that same age group.
