As the largest city in Illinois outside of the Chicago metropolitan area, Rockford has problems with substance abuse and addiction like any other place in the U.S.
Opioid addiction remains a major public health concern in Rockford and the state of Illinois. In 2018, nearly 80% of drug overdose deaths in Illinois involved opioids. Rockford, the county seat of Winnebago County, was a major contributor to opioid overdose deaths in Illinois in 2016, along with cities residing in Madison, Peoria, and St. Clair counties.
In 2018, Illinois healthcare providers wrote an average of 45.2 opioid prescriptions for every 100 state residents. Additionally, nearly 55,000 people in Illinois are living with hepatitis C caused by injection drug use.
Other substances commonly misused in Illinois include alcohol, methamphetamine, cocaine, and prescription drugs. People who live in and near Rockford who struggle with substance use disorders can receive safe, evidence-based addiction treatment with drug and alcohol detox in nearby Bloomington.
Our Nearest Facility
Indiana Center for Recovery offers various personalized addiction treatment programs for people in Rockford who need help fighting addiction. We are located at 1004 W First Street in Bloomington, Indiana, 47403, which is a little over five hours in driving time from Rockford. We offer medication-assisted detox and drug and alcohol rehab programs—including opioid rehab for those coping with heroin and painkiller addiction. We welcome patients from all walks of life who need a safe, quiet, and relaxing place to recover from addiction and achieve long-lasting sobriety.
Medication-Assisted Detox Near Rockford
Medication-assisted detox is the first stage of treatment for those who are physically dependent on drugs and alcohol. This treatment helps people withdraw from substance abuse while facing a reduced risk of complications such as seizures, dehydration, and organ failure. Drug and alcohol withdrawal can often be extremely uncomfortable and scary, but medication-assisted detox reduces withdrawal symptoms to help patients feel more comfortable and recover faster.
Medication-assisted detox involves using a variety of medications that help minimize withdrawal symptoms. Alcohol and drug detox in Bloomington offers treatment to Rockford residents needing help withdrawing from alcohol, benzodiazepines, crack, cocaine, methamphetamine, and opioids (including heroin and Suboxone).
Alcohol detox is a necessary treatment for all patients physically dependent on alcohol, given how these individuals often face a high risk of seizures, dehydration, and heart failure. Patients who receive alcohol detox in Bloomington can benefit from 24-hour monitoring and support from trained nurses and doctors as they go through withdrawal. Medications such as diazepam (a sedative/benzodiazepine) prevent complications and minimize withdrawal symptoms, including alcohol cravings.
Opioid detox is an essential treatment for people dependent on one or more opioids, including heroin and fentanyl. People in Rockford who are addicted to opioids can receive medications in opioid detox that are highly effective at reducing all withdrawal symptoms, including insomnia, muscle pain, and drug cravings. Some patients stay on these medications for many years—or as long as needed—to help them stay sober and avoid a relapse.
Benzodiazepine detox works differently from many other drug detox protocols by using a tapering method. During benzodiazepine detox, a patient’s current dosage of benzodiazepines gets reduced gradually until no longer physically dependent on these drugs. Doctors work closely with patients during this time to make sure symptoms are kept as mild as possible during withdrawal, given how benzodiazepine withdrawal can produce severe anxiety, insomnia, and nausea.
Suboxone is a medication typically used to treat opioid dependence. However, Suboxone is also an opioid itself and is habit-forming like all other opioids. Suboxone detox treatment is similar to that for benzodiazepines in that it involves gradually tapering patients off the medication to minimize withdrawal symptoms. Doctors develop personalized tapering schedules for each patient based on how they respond to lower dosages.
Stimulant detox helps patients withdraw from methamphetamine, crack, and cocaine. This treatment focuses on reducing certain symptoms because each patient often experiences different symptoms based on the stimulant used. Stimulants produce a range of psychological symptoms that require treatment with antipsychotics and sedatives to help stabilize the patient. Paranoia, agitation, and psychosis are some psychological symptoms that may be addressed and treated during stimulant detox.
Drug and Alcohol Rehab Treatment Near Rockford
Drug and alcohol rehab programs focus on helping patients change harmful behaviors, attitudes, and beliefs that contribute to their addiction. Many patients transition into a rehab program after completing medication-assisted detox, given how detox treats only withdrawal symptoms and does not correct addiction-related behaviors. Our Bloomington facility offers rehab programs customized for each patient, including heroin rehab, opioid rehab, and alcohol rehab.
Residential rehab is the #1 recommended program for patients who come to us from Rockford, given the long distance they must travel to receive treatment at our facility. Residential rehab programs typically last between 30 and 90 days, though longer programs are available for those who need more time to recover from addiction.
Patients who join our residential rehab program live at the facility for the duration of their treatment program and can take advantage of high-quality amenities, including upgraded appliances, the latest electronics, and newly renovated rooms. We also provide highly nutritious meals and various fun activities to keep patients occupied between therapy sessions and during periods of free time.
Residential rehab is ideal for patients who need a safe place to relax and recover from addiction, away from stressful situations and significant responsibilities related to school and work. Patients have 24-hour access to medical care and support staff members and receive busy schedules that help them develop new daily routines. These routines include various behavioral therapies and therapeutic activities that help them identify and address the root causes of their addiction and teach them how to stay sober.
Outpatient rehab programs are ideal for patients who want more freedom and flexibility in their treatment plans to resume their careers or education or spend quality healing time with their families. Patients who receive outpatient rehab treatment either live at home or in sober living facilities. Patients from Rockford who receive outpatient treatment at our Bloomington facility are encouraged to stay in a nearby sober living home to cut down on costs and inconveniences related to daily travel.
Outpatient rehab programs offer many of the same therapies and services like our residential program but take fewer hours a day on fewer days a week. These programs remain flexible to accommodate patients who want to fulfill vital obligations outside of a 24-hour treatment setting.
Our Bloomington recovery center offers several behavioral therapies to help patients address the root causes of their addiction. Some of the therapies we specialize in include dual diagnosis therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, and family therapy.
Dual diagnosis therapy is ideal for patients who suffer from a co-occurring mental health disorder. Depression, anxiety, PTSD, bipolar disorder, and borderline personality disorder are some of the many common mental health disorders accompanying addiction. Dual diagnosis therapy teaches patients how to cope and manage mental illness while abstaining from drugs and alcohol.
EMDR therapy helps patients heal from emotional distress and behavioral symptoms driving their addiction—including those by trauma. Family therapy involves the patient’s loved ones in their treatment plan and focuses on repairing and strengthening the overall family dynamic to help everyone heal from addiction.
