Kansas suffers from meth as does much of the mid west, cocaine and heroin pervade and alcohol addiction and marijuana abuse make up the majority of chemically dependant. More recently, many in Kansas battle with addictions to prescription pain pills. It is estimated that 6 million or more Americans suffer prescription drug addictions, and since these drugs are readily accessible through local doctors, people often use for too long before seeking help.
Kansas unfortunately does not offer strong insurance parity laws. Insurance companies in Kansas are not mandated to treat mental health and substance abuse concerns with equal weight to physical ailments, and the result is that too often in Kansas, even people with god heath insurance will find that their insurance provider offers minimal support for drug rehab and treatment.
Fortunately, even those people with little money to pay for rehab, and without good insurance coverage, can find affordable or even free drug rehab within the state. Additionally, the state may find drug treatment costs, and you may be eligible for funding even if you do not qualify for Medicaid.
Everyone in Kansas can get help. If you need drug treatment, you can get it and you can get it at a price you can afford.
