Located in Southern Illinois and known as “Little Egypt,” Carbondale has problems with substance misuse and addiction like many other cities in the Prairie State.
Opioids, methamphetamine, and alcohol are the most commonly misused substances in Carbondale—located in both Jackson and Williamson Counties. Opioids and methamphetamine contribute to a high number of hospitalizations and emergency room visits in Illinois, though opioids are associated with the highest number of drug-related overdose deaths.
In 2018, opioids were involved in nearly 80% of all drug overdose deaths occurring in Illinois. The majority of these deaths involved synthetic opioids such as fentanyl, which is up to 100 times stronger than morphine. Opioid prescribing rates in Illinois are also relatively high; healthcare providers wrote more than 45 prescriptions for every 100,000 state residents in 2018.
Fortunately, Carbondale residents who are struggling with addiction have access to nearby professional treatment. Drug and alcohol detox in Bloomington, Indiana, is available to people in Carbondale who want to experience a safe, comfortable withdrawal while facing a reduced risk of complications. Drug and alcohol rehab programs are also available in Bloomington to help these individuals achieve long-term recovery.

Medication-Assisted Detox Near Carbondale
The idea of going through drug and alcohol withdrawal can be frightening for many people who suffer from addiction. Withdrawal symptoms are painful, uncomfortable, and extremely difficult to cope with, especially for severe drug and alcohol dependence. Medication-assisted detox is a treatment that aims to help patients feel more comfortable during withdrawal by incorporating the use of medications that can reduce or eliminate withdrawal symptoms.
Alcohol Detox in Carbondale
Alcohol withdrawal syndrome is one of the most dangerous withdrawal syndromes due to the risk of seizures, heart failure, and dehydration. Alcohol detox helps minimize all these risks because this treatment involves monitoring patients closely 24 hours a day for the duration of withdrawal. Medications, including sedatives, are used in alcohol detox to treat specific symptoms that arise, stabilize the patient, and reduce the risk of seizures.
Carbondale residents who need help withdrawing from alcohol can live at our facility for the duration of alcohol detox, which can take up to 10 days. Alcohol detox is a far safer alternative to at-home detox treatments, which may not effectively reduce the risk of seizures.
Many people physically dependent on opioids have difficulty quitting and staying sober due to severe withdrawal symptoms, including insomnia and drug cravings. These symptoms can often become severe enough to cause patients to relapse, which increases the risk of a fatal drug overdose. Opioid detox involves medications that can reduce or eliminate these symptoms so patients can stay safe and avoid the risk of overdose. Our Bloomington facility offers detox treatments for all opioids, including heroin, fentanyl, and painkillers, as well as an opioid rehab program.
Benzodiazepines are prescription medications used to reduce insomnia and anxiety. However, benzodiazepines are extremely habit-forming and can lead to physical dependence when used even for just a few weeks. Benzodiazepine detox gets administered using a tapering method, which involves reducing the patient’s dosage little by little every week until they are no longer dependent on the medication or experiencing symptoms. Benzodiazepine detox may take up to eight weeks or longer, depending on how the patient responds to treatment.
Suboxone is a medication used to treat opioid dependence but is habit-forming like other opioids. Suboxone produces the same effects as other opioids minus the euphoric “high,” which is why this medication effectively reduces withdrawal symptoms. Those who become addicted to this medication can receive Suboxone detox, which tapers off the medication gradually until the patient is no longer using it. That can take up to several weeks or however long is needed until the patient has stopped experiencing withdrawal symptoms.
Stimulant detox includes methamphetamine detox and crack/cocaine detox. Stimulant drugs speed up bodily processes, including heart rate, and can cause depression and increased appetite when stopped abruptly. These drugs may also cause withdrawal symptoms that include agitation, irritability, and paranoia. Stimulant detox treatments usually involve the use of medications that treat specific symptoms, which may vary from one patient to the next based on the type of stimulant they were using.
Drug and Alcohol Rehab Treatment Near Carbondale
Many Carbondale residents who receive drug and alcohol detox in Bloomington end up transitioning into a rehab program for addiction. Rehab programs use behavioral therapies to help these individuals identify and change harmful behaviors and attitudes that may be contributing to their addiction. Our Bloomington facility offers residential and outpatient rehab programs customized for each patient based on their unique situations and recovery needs.
Residential rehab programs offer the highest level of care; they provide patients with 24-hour supervision and support, vital during the early days of recovery. Patients are kept busy throughout the day with various therapy sessions and therapeutic activities that promote sober, healthy living. Medical support is also available for patients who may need ongoing medical treatment after their alcohol and drug detox programs have ended.
We recommend residential rehab programs to all our patients who come from Carbondale. Patients can live at our Bloomington facility for the duration of their 30-, 60-, or 90-day treatment program and avoid a daily commute. Residents have access to nutritious meals and top-notch amenities, including new appliances and electronics. Residential rehab is ideal for patients who want a safe, relaxing, and quiet environment where they can focus on recovery without having access to drugs and alcohol.
Outpatient rehab gives patients the flexibility they need to work, go to school, or take care of their families. Outpatient rehab is less intensive than residential rehab. Patients can live at home or in a sober living community while visiting our treatment facility several times a week for therapy. This rehab program remains ideal for patients highly motivated to stay sober and who have learned essential skills for managing and avoiding triggers.
Many of our patients from Carbondale transition to an outpatient rehab program after completing residential rehab. We encourage these patients to stay at a nearby sober living facility for the duration of their outpatient programs to reduce the time spent commuting several times a week to and from our Bloomington recovery center.
Behavioral therapy is critical to helping patients change harmful behaviors and thought processes related to addiction. Detox addresses only the physical symptoms of drug dependence, while behavioral therapy helps patients adopt lifelong behaviors that contribute to greater well-being and long-term sobriety.
Our rehab center in Bloomington places great emphasis on family therapy and programs, which help patients reunite with their loved ones and repair relationships that became broken due to addiction. We also offer dual diagnosis therapy to help patients manage co-occurring mental health disorders and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, which helps patients heal from past traumas contributing to their substance use disorders.
All rehab programs are customized for each patient, meaning some patients may receive different therapies than others based on their unique situations. Cognitive-behavioral therapy, contingency management, and motivational interviewing are other common therapies offered at drug rehab centers.
