A true Midwest favorite, Illinois is just as popular for its busy and lively metropolitan centers as it is for its incredible and breathtaking natural landscapes. Whether you’re enjoying a Cubs game at Wrigley Field, exploring the waterfalls of Matthiessen State Park, salivating over deep-dish pizza, or river boating across one of the serene lakes in Illinois, you’re sure to find an exciting experience. However, while the Land of Lincoln is home to social, cultural, and political delights, it also bears a heavy burden of addiction. Banyan offers various drug and alcohol rehab programs in Illinois that can help.
Illinois Opioid Epidemic
The opioid crisis began in the late 1990s when the rate of prescriptions for opioids spiked. Thousands of patients had wide accessibility to opioids like hydrocodone, oxycodone, and Fentanyl. The effects of opioids on the brain are what makes them so addictive. Because the rate of prescription for these drugs increased, so did the prevalence of opioid abuse. As a result of this crisis, drug overdoses have become the leading cause of death in Americans under the age of 50.1 Illinois is one of the many areas in the United States that have been hard with the repercussions of this epidemic. Despite the recent declines in opioid addiction rates, 2,278 drug overdose deaths occurred in Illinois in 2016 compared to the 1,579 that occurred in 2013, a 44.3 percent increase. Also, of the 2,278 drug overdose deaths during the Illinois opioid crisis, over 80 percent (1,826) were opioid-related.2 Fortunately, help is available.
