Chicago, Illinois Addiction and Treatment

In 2016, more than 2,350 Illinoisans died from drug overdoses. More than 5,500 deaths annually occur in Illinois due to the abuse of alcohol and other drugs. 7.17% of Illinois residents reported using illicit drugs in the past month (2018). Substance abuse costs the state approximately $3.5 billion every year.

Chicago's an exhilarating city with world-class museums, a vibrant arts and culture scene, and mouthwatering cuisine to savor. Opioid overdoses and fentanyl-related deaths, however, have skyrocketed – Cook County saw a 97% rise in fentanyl-induced fatalities from 2018 to 2019, and had the state's second-highest drug mortality rate in 2021.
