Illinois Free Rehab Centers
The Illinois state motto is “State Sovereignty, National Unity” and it refers to the independent nature of the state combined with the extra power that comes from being united with the other states. It’s been a long time since you have felt independent or strengthened by a union, hasn’t it? Because of addiction, you are dependent on the substance you abuse, and all of your former unions have been fractured. But, there are Illinois Free Rehabs that can help you. They will connect you with a variety of resources, like therapy and support groups, that will enable you to become independent once more and to connect with others in a stable healthy manner.

According to SAMHSA, “The process of recovery is highly personal and occurs via many pathways. It may include clinical treatment, medications, faith-based approaches,” and/or other methods. However, some kind of professional rehab for addiction is always beneficial, though it can be costly. At a free rehab center, you can receive the same treatment that is available at one of these more expensive facilities without the cost. For Illinois residents, these centers exist all over the state, in cities like Chicago, Cairo, Bloomington, Aurora, and Canton to name a few.
The state’s drug abuse issues are similar to that of the national average. According to the ONDCP, “Approximately 8.35 percent of Illinois residents reported past-month use of illicit drugs; the national average was 8.82 percent.” Currently, most drug problems of the state’s residents stem from marijuana and heroin abuse respectively, with the former bypassing the latter in 2011 for most primary treatment admissions. Cocaine and other stimulants as well as prescription-based opioids have also caused many issues in the state as well. All of these substances cause varying degrees of harm when they are overused or taken in high doses. Each one has the potential of becoming addictive when abused and the possibility for causing physical and psychological damage.
Many individuals do not have the money to be able to attend expensive treatment programs which is why free rehab centers are so important. They provide the necessary treatment methods that have been known to be successful over and over without asking patients to pay for what they do not need. And because the Affordable Care Act “includes substance use disorders as one of the ten elements of essential health benefits,” it is becoming more and more clear that people need to receive low-cost and accessible rehab for these types of conditions (ONDCP).
As stated by the NIDA, “Addiction is a complex but treatable disease that affects brain function and behavior.” This is why professional rehab is necessary, although it must contain the treatment that is most beneficial to the individual patient. This means:
- The type of treatment program (inpatient vs outpatient)
- The treatment methods (medication, therapy, a combination of the two)
- The location of the facility and the ease with which the individual can attend rehab
- The cost of the facility and the ease with which the individual can afford rehab
Free facilities which provide different methods of treatment to individuals who need help are necessary to overall drug abuse prevention and individual recovery in Illinois. According to the NIDA, “Heroin, cocaine, and marijuana continued to be the the most commonly used illicit substances in Chicago,” all of which have seen large numbers of individuals seeking treatment for addiction and dependence. And especially in cities like Chicago with addicted individuals who have both high and low incomes, these free facilities must be available to those who cannot afford the more costly ones.
