Olathe, Kansas, is a city with a long and rich history. It has invested heavily in improving its community, earning it the coveted 11th position on the "100 Best Cities to Live in the United States" list of Money Magazine in 2008. However, in 2017, a shooting took place in a crowded bar, believed to be a racist attack due to the fact that two of the three victims were Indians. That being said, no city in the world is without its fair share of problems.


One particular problem in Olathe, as in many other parts of the country, is that of substance abuse. The city is home to a number of drug courts, as part of its Adult Corrections system. Through these courts, people can be court ordered to attend detox and rehab facilities for treatment. If they complete their treatment program, then their criminal charges will be dropped. These courts have been reasonably successful.


That said, Olathe also wants to engage in significant efforts to help those people trapped in the cycle of addiction and substance abuse, but who have not come into contact with the criminal justice system yet. Furthermore, they want to ensure that an intervention system is in place in order to help people avoid drug and alcohol abuse in the first place. To do this, the city first wanted to understand the extent of the problem.
