The production, distribution, and abuse of illicit drugs pose a serious threat to Kansas drug rehab efforts. Dodge City, Garden City, Liberal, Kansas City, Topeka, and Wichita are drug distribution centers in the state and also serve as transit areas for drugs being transported to other states.

drug rehab / drug addiction - Methamphetamine Labs Seizeddrug rehab / drug addiction - methamphetamineMethamphetamine:

Methamphetamine is a principal drug threat to Kansas drug rehab center concerns, primarily because of the drug’s ready availability as well as the violence and environmental harm that often result from its production and abuse. Methamphetamine produced by Mexican criminal groups in Mexico, California, and southwestern states is the predominant type available in Kansas drug rehab center concerns, although the availability of locally produced methamphetamine is increasing. The number of methamphetamine laboratories seized in Kansas more than quadrupled from 1998 through 2001, and many law enforcement agencies report that they are witnessing an adverse environmental impact from the presence of methamphetamine laboratories. Caucasian local independent producers, who generally use the Birch reduction method, are the primary in-state methamphetamine producers.

drug rehab / drug addiction - crack cocainedrug rehab / drug addiction - cocaineCocaine:

Cocaine, particularly crack, poses a significant drug threat to Kansas drug rehab program planning largely because of crack’s highly addictive nature and association with violent crime. Crack cocaine is available primarily in metropolitan areas, and powdered cocaine is available throughout the state.

drug rehab / drug addiction - marijuana plantMarijuana:

Marijuana is the most widely available and frequently abused illicit drug in Kansas. Marijuana abuse is associated with more drug-related admissions to publicly funded treatment facilities than any other illicit drug. Most of the marijuana available in the state is produced in Mexico, although some cannabis is cultivated locally. Other dangerous drugs pose an increasing threat to Kansas drug rehab efforts.

drug rehab / drug addiction - ecstasy pillsClub Drugs:

Other dangerous drugs include the stimulant MDMA; the depressant GHB and its analogs; the hallucinogens LSD, PCP, psilocybin, and ketamine; and diverted pharmaceuticals including opioids (narcotic analgesics) such as codeine, Darvocet, Dilaudid, hydrocodone (Lortab, Vicodin), methadone, oxycodone (OxyContin, Percocet, Percodan), and sedative hypnotics (benzodiazepines) such as Valium and Xanax. Other dangerous drugs are becoming increasingly available in some areas of the state, especially in cities with colleges or universities. Other dangerous drugs are sold primarily by Caucasian local independent dealers and are abused by young adults.

Heroin poses a low threat to Kansas addiction treatment requirements. Mexican black tar heroin and brown powdered heroin are available on a limited basis in metropolitan areas of the state such as Kansas City and Wichita. Mexican criminal groups are the primary transporters of heroin to drug markets in Kansas.

Drug-related Kansas drug rehab admissions to publicly funded facilities increased in Kansas from 1997 through 2001. According to the Treatment Episode Data Set (TEDS), the number of addiction treatment admissions for most major drug categories—including methamphetamine, cocaine, and marijuana—increased overall during that period. The percentage of Kansas residents who report abusing illicit drugs, many of which actually need drug rehab programs, is lower than the percentage nationwide. According to the 1999–2000 National Household Survey on Drug Abuse (NHSDA), 5.1 percent of individuals in Kansas reported having abused an illicit drug in the month prior to the survey compared with 6.3 percent of individuals nationwide. In fiscal year (FY) 2001 the percentage of federal sentences that were drug-related in Kansas was higher than the national percentage, and the percentage of federal sentences that were methamphetamine-related was significantly higher than the percentage nationwide. According to the U.S. Sentencing Commission (USSC), drug-related sentences represented 47 percent of all federal sentences in the state in FY2001 compared with 41 percent nationally. Almost 35 percent of all drug-related federal sentences in Kansas were methamphetamine-related compared with 14 percent nationally.

Violent crime associated with drug-related activity is a particular concern in Kansas. Criminal groups and street gangs commit violent crimes in connection with drug debts and territorial disputes. Many methamphetamine and cocaine abusers commit violent crimes and property crimes to support their drug addictions and should be participating in Kansas drug rehab programs to thwart the demand for the drug.

The financial impact on the Kansas government from substance abuse-related costs is significant. The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University reported that in 1998 (the most recent year for which data are available) Kansas spent in excess of $584 million—approximately $223 per resident—on substance abuse-related costs including drug rehab and addiction treatment centers. This figure accounted for 9.4 percent of the state’s total expenditures. There are countless reasons for an increase in Kansas drug rehab programs and centers to begin to heal this broken population.

Drugs and Addiction Treatment Centers

Drug Situation: Methamphetamine, both imported and domestically produced, is a principal drug of concern in the state of Kansas. Cocaine, particularly crack cocaine, is also readily available throughout the state, primarily in major urban areas such as Kansas City, Topeka, and Wichita. In addition, Kansas is a transshipment point for drugs being transported to the eastern United States via Interstates 35 and 70 from the southwest border and west coast cities.

Other Drugs: PCP is available primarily in the Kansas City Metropolitan area. The PCP is delivered via parcel services from traffickers based in California. DEA Kansas City continues to coordinate the multi-division investigation of a large LSD laboratory discovered in Wamego, Kansas, in November 2000. Kansas treatment centers are reporting that many of their new clients are seeking drug addiction treatment for OxyContin addiction. Lawrence, Kansas, reports that it is the most abused pharmaceutical drug in the area and is available for $40 a tablet.

drug rehab / drug addiction - Drug-Violation ArrestsDEA Mobile Enforcement Teams: This cooperative program with state and local law enforcement counterparts was conceived in 1995 in response to the overwhelming problem of drug-related violent crime in towns and cities across the nation. There have been 359 deployments completed resulting in over 14,456 arrests of violent drug criminals as of April 1, 2002. There has been one Mobile Enforcement Team (MET) deployment in the State of Kansas since the inception of the program. The MET deployment to Topeka, Kansas, resulted in 18 arrests and the seizure of 2.3 pounds of cocaine, 2.7 pounds of crack cocaine, 75.9 pounds of marijuana, .1 pound of Percocet, and 9.8 pounds of methamphetamine. Also seized were 6 weapons, 9 vehicles, and over $108,000 in U.S. currency.

Special Topics: During 2001, there were 75 Operation Pipeline interdictions reported to EPIC in the state of Kansas, leading to the seizure of nearly 100 kilograms of cocaine, over 4,500 pounds of marijuana, six kilograms of methamphetamine and nearly $3 million dollars.

Addiction Treatment Centers Needed:

The increased abuse of illegal drugs and the ever-increasing abuse of prescribed medications leads to an increase in the number of addicted individuals in the state. Effective treatment must be available to these individuals so they may become productive members of their communities and contribute to the welfare of the state.
