Kansas has eight Designated Women’s Substance Abuse Treatment Programs. Designated Women’s Programs provide specialized services to meet the needs of women and their children, as well as give priority admission to pregnant women, women with dependent children and women using IV drugs.
Pregnant women are given priority status by federal mandate for admission to treatment. All pregnant women must be offered an assessment within 24 hours of initial contact, and admitted into treatment within 48 hours, as clinically indicated.
Women with dependent children, including those who are attempting to regain custody, are given priority status by state mandate for admission to treatment.
Women who use IV drugs are given priority status by federal mandate for admission to treatment. All women using IV drugs must be offered an assessment and admitted into treatment within 14 days, as clinically indicated.
