Kansas Opioid State Targeted Response

In 2017, Kansas awarded a two-year grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration to address the increase in opioid use nationwide. The Kansas Opioid State Targeted Response (STR) Program then awarded grants to four programs. Those grantees are:
  • University of Kansas Health System
  • Central Kansas Foundation
  • Heartland RADAC
  • Four County Mental Health Center

Awardees are expected to develop plans that will:

  • Reduce the number of persons with Opioid Use Disorders (OUD) and the number of opioid overdose-related deaths through the provision of primary and secondary prevention, treatment and recovery activities;
  • Supplement, not supplant, other Federal or State funding for prevention, treatment and recovery activities;
  • Participate in the statewide media campaign for primary prevention; and,
  • Participate in the development of a comprehensive state strategic plan to address the gaps in prevention, treatment and recovery
