Heroin Addiction in Illinois

Most people in Illinois don’t use drugs. Its rate of substance use is .85% lower than the national average. However, when people do use drugs, it’s the most dangerous substance of all: heroin. About 1/3 of primary admissions into Illinois drug rehabs are from heroin alone, which outranks even marijuana and cocaine. In fact, the largest city in both Illinois and the whole Midwest, Chicago, is now considered the “heroin capital of the Midwest”.

Most of Illinois’ heroin is “black tar”, which is supplied by Mexican cartels. This crude form of heroin brings specific health dangers, collapsing veins and causing sclerosis when it is injected. When it comes to heroin addiction, the best-case scenario has addicts lying, stealing and destroying the lives of everyone around them. At its worst and most tragic, heroin addiction leads to HIV/AIDS, overdose, and ultimately death.
