2022 Kansas Opioid and Stimulant Conference

The 6th Annual Kansas Opioid and Stimulant Conference will take place on November 10th, at the Hotel Topeka, formerly the Topeka Capitol Plaza.

Due to the significant rise in psychostimulant overdoses in Kansas, the conference has expanded to include topics related to stimulant prevention, treatment, and recovery for the second year. 


DCCCA, the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services, the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, and the Kansas Prescription Drug and Opioid Advisory Committee present the conference. 


Join us on November 10th to learn more about the opioid and stimulant crisis in Kansas. Engaging together in this proactive effort to build a collaborative response will help to prevent the escalation of this crisis in Kansas.


This year the conference will have a track dedicated to the emerging issue surrounding the rise in stimulant morbidity and mortality.
