As both the geographical center of the U.S. and an important agricultural center, Kansas is certainly part of the heartland of the U.S. Unfortunately, Kansas is also the epicenter of Tornado Alley in the U.S. and sees some of the most extreme weather events in the country. It’s one of the many breadbasket states in the Midwest and so agriculture is the main product of Kansas. Like many states in the U.S., Kansas struggles 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 a substance, 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 care provider in your area for assistance.
