The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration (SAMHSA) has recently completed a piece of research on the levels of substance abuse, including drug, alcohol, and prescription medication abuse, in Kansas City, KS. Unfortunately, the results of this study were far from positive. As a result, public health officials have taken note of the seriousness of the situation and are creating strategies to approach this.

New Strategies - New Hope

Kansas City public health officials are aiming to do two things. Firstly, they want to ensure that people do not turn to drug or alcohol at any point. To achieve this, they have created programs in partnership with health services, educational establishments, community organizations, and residents in order to create an intervention for those who are approaching an age where they are most at risk of becoming involved with substances.

The second element of the strategy is to make appropriate help available for those who are already trapped in the cycle of addiction. There have been a number of new private and state sponsored detox and rehab facilities, including inpatient and outpatient facilities, that people can attend. Kansas City wants to focus on raising awareness about these services, but also on making them more accessible by removing financial and transportation burdens. It is hoped that, in so doing, more people will feel empowered to seek the assistance that they need.

The Statistics

The strategies implemented by Kansas City officials are quite significant, and have required a big investment of public money. However, when considering the statistics on drug and alcohol abuse in the city, this is perhaps not surprising. Specifically, the SAMHSA report demonstrated that:

  • 239,000 people over the age of 12 have used at least one illicit substance in the past 12 months. These include nonmedical prescription medication, inhalants, hallucinogenics, heroin, powder and crack cocaine, and cannabis.
  • 90% of Kansas City residents know someone who abuses drugs or alcohol.
  • 49% of people first start using substances when they are aged between 18 and 25.
  • 66% believe that it is easy to access cocaine.
  • 98% believe that there is a growing concern around prescription medication abuse.
  • 78% of people believe that taking ecstasy does not pose any risks. This is a particular area of concern for Kansas City officials, and a lot of the intervention work they are doing surrounds educating people about just how dangerous this substance, and others like it, are.
  • 93% of people believe that addiction is best treated through professional detox and rehab facilities.

The final pointer in particular has greatly interested Kansas City officials. As a result of this, three specialized courts have been instated: the drug court, the mental health court, and the veterans' treatment court. Through these courts, people who abuse substances can commit to seeking treatment and help, rather than seeing their behavior criminalized. This has proven to be a very successful approach, particularly because Kansas City is so committed to improving not just the accessibility of care, but also its quality. And they have increased and improved aftercare programs as well.
