Amidst the nationwide opioid epidemic, Illinois has suffered significant damages. The state has lost countless lives to opioid overdoses in the past years. Treatment admissions for heroin users have increased dramatically in the state, which also ranks first for heroin-related emergency room visits across the country.
Illinois — Addiction Treatment in a Time of Need
Yet, these increasing rates of addiction coincided with severe cuts to state-funded treatment resources several years ago. In response, advocates have been working to increase access to treatment for opioid addicts, make naloxone training available, and provide clean syringes to intravenous drug users. There have also been efforts to increase medication-assisted treatment for opioid dependence.

Finding Sobriety in Illinois
There is a wide range of rehab options available to you, with nearly 700 facilities in the state of Illinois. It’s important to know what you’re looking for in a treatment facility, to match its services with your needs.
Many people struggling with substance abuse tend to be “poly-addicted,” meaning they abuse multiple mind-altering substances. Most facilities in Illinois treat people dealing with both alcohol and drug problems.
But, addiction goes beyond mind-altering substances. There are a host of underlying conditions that can contribute to self-destructive behavior. Mental illness is commonly associated with substance abuse, and nearly 1 in every 3 rehabs in the state are known as dual diagnosis rehabs—offering substance abuse treatment treatment alongside mental health services.
Though there are mostly outpatient rehabs in Illinois, a smaller portion offer inpatient or residential treatment services. In the treatment of opioid addiction and especially intravenous drug use, inpatient rehab can be an essential component of long-term sobriety. In residential treatment, you or your loved one will be in a safe, healing environment and separated from potential temptations.
Be sure to inquire about payment options and the insurance plans accepted by each facility. Almost half of the rehabs in Illinois will offer treatment at no charge for some clients who cannot pay.
Most Illinois rehabs will offer these standard services:
- Substance abuse assessments and diagnoses
- Screenings for drugs and/or alcohol
- Individual and group counseling sessions with licensed therapists
- Relapse-prevention work
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)
