The Worsening Addictions – Opioids and Heroin in Illinois
To understand how important professional opioid and heroin addiction treatment is, let’s first consider the mechanisms behind opioid addition and why it’s getting worse in the state. In 2017 alone, Illinois healthcare providers wrote 51.  opioid prescriptions for every 100 people.  While this is slightly below the national average, it’s still shocking.
Many addicts are introduced to opioids through perfectly legal prescription pills. As tolerance builds, addicts need more pills to feel the same effects. And as prescriptions run out or higher doses are needed, patients may turn to stronger or illegal opioids that contain fentanyl, the substance responsible for many overdoses. Those who started with an addiction to pain pills may turn to heroin when they can’t get their fix.
