As both the geographical center of the US and an important agricultural center, Kansas is certainly part of the American heartland. Unfortunately, Kansas is also the epicenter of Tornado Alley in the US; the state sees some of the most extreme weather events in the country. It’s one of the many breadbasket states in the Midwest, so agriculture is the main product of Kansas. Like many states in the US, Kansas has struggled with the aftershocks of the Opioid epidemic. Methamphetamine also poses a threat throughout the state, as trafficking and use both continue to rise. Regardless of the legality of the substance abused, a substance use disorder will damage the person using and those surrounding them. If you know anyone in or around this situation, please contact a treatment provider for assistance.
