Drug And Alcohol Addiction In Topeka, Kansas

The middle of America is characterized by smaller cities surrounded by miles of sprawling, rural landscape; Topeka is no exception. The seat of Shawnee County is home to over 127,000 people, with another 100,000 in its greater metropolitan area. Historically, Kansas was part of a cattle-wrangling trail from Chicago to Texas; those trails became the major highways that crisscross the state. Those who live in the area can get help with drug or alcohol addiction or dependency at local treatment centers.

Topeka, in particular, regularly deals with drug trafficking. Because of this, Shawnee County is a designated High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area by the Drug Enforcement Agency. Topeka law enforcement often make sizable drug trafficking busts. In one 2018 stop, officers found over a quarter million dollars’ worth of Cocaine and Meth. The previous year, they stopped a man who’d been trafficking pounds of Methamphetamine through his pizza shop. In the same year, 42% more child protective services cases listed substance abuse as a factor in a child’s removal. Cases involving Meth more than doubled.

Opioid Addiction In Topeka

Though Kansas has had lower rates of Opioid addiction than the national average, rates of abuse are still alarmingly high. Prescription Opioids and Heroin (a cheaper Opium-based alternative) have overtaken other illicit substances in rates of dependency, overdose, and accidental death.

Topeka witnessed one synthetic Opioid in particular, U-47700, wreak havoc. U-47700, a Fentanyl analog, is 8 times more powerful than Morphine and caused 2 overdoses in a month before the substance was identified. The drug causes feelings of euphoria but is also a sedative and could slow the respiratory system. Even contact with skin or inhalation will cause irritation or breathing problems.

Addiction Treatment In Topeka

Topeka maintains a variety of addiction treatment options to service a range of public health needs. Through a Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Block Grant, funds are provided to rehabilitation centers to treat individuals without insurance.

Depending on the severity and length of the addiction, patients may enroll in inpatient or outpatient rehab. After treatment ends, those in recovery can find offices for Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous in Topeka. Some may also choose to leave Kansas for treatment and enjoy freedom from local stressors as they detox.

If you or a loved one is battling addiction, there is hope. For more information on treatment options, contact a treatment provider today.
