Call for Help (773) 345-5466
Illinois is wedged between five states: Indiana, Kentucky, Missouri, Iowa and Wisconsin. The state of Illinois has always been a prime location for highly organized drug trafficking.
Alcohol and drugs affect nearly 1 million Illinoisans. With Chicago being the largest city in the state and the most populous city in the United States, the prevalence of drug-related gang violence, homicides, prostitution, money laundering and social ills is higher than ever.

Substance Abuse in Illinois
Illinois has always been a target area for drug traffickers because of its location in the Midwest and easy access to the Appalachians. With Chicago’s O’Hare Airport as the busiest in the country, five neighboring states, several highways and major bodies of water, it‘s no surprise drug trafficking is still prominent in the state.
Methamphetamine has become a steadily increasing problem. Illinois is situated in the ‘meth belt’ of the Midwest. Meth is produced in great quantities in underground laboratories. The drug is made in rural areas of the state from chemicals usually stolen from pharmacies, agriculture stores and the chemical industry.
Prescription drug abuse and pill shopping is on the rise, mainly in the suburbs and rural areas of Illinois. Hydrocodone (Vicodin, Lortab, Norco) continues to be the most available opiate to non-prescribed users. Although Illinois ranks 8 out of 10 for strategies to curb prescription drug abuse, pill mills are still prevalent throughout the state.
MDMA (ecstasy) and synthetic drugs are mainly used by teenagers as club drugs. There has been an increase among 9th – 12th grade students in the use of spice, Molly and bath salts.
Most Commonly Abused Drugs
Cocaine, heroin, and marijuana are the most heavily trafficked drugs in the state of Illinois. Non-medical use of prescription drugs is on the rise as well as an increase in crystal meth labs and ecstasy.
Heroin is widely available throughout the state. Mexican and Colombian drug lords have become a huge presence in Chicago and they play a large role in smuggling heroin into Illinois. The ample supply of heroin has meant a drop in prices. Consequently, a drop in cost has resulted in a lower quality and higher potency of the drug such as Mexican black tar heroin.
Cocaine is still the most expensive illegal drug. Most cocaine in Chicago comes into the city via trucks through several interstates. Once in the city, cocaine is quickly re-packaged and trafficked throughout Illinois, New York City and Philadelphia.
Marijuana is accessible throughout the United States, especially in Illinois. The use of synthetic marijuana is increasing in supply as well as the emergence of local grow houses.
