Kansas has experienced a 54% increase in drug overdose deaths during the first six months of 2021 compared to the same period in 2020. In response to this increase, the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services (KDADS), the Kansas Prescription Drug and Opioid Advisory Committee, and the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) are developing a strategic plan to reduce drug overdose deaths. We are collecting survey responses from Kansas residents to help build a comprehensive drug overdose prevention plan. Thank you for your time and input.
