Peoria is the largest city and port located on the Illinois River. Opioids, methamphetamine, and alcohol are among the most commonly misused substances in Peoria.
In 2016 and 2018, Peoria County was one of four Illinois counties that contributed to the statewide number of opioid overdose deaths. Peoria County also has some of the highest rates of opioid-related hospitalizations and naloxone administrations in Illinois. Naloxone is a drug that reverses the effects of an opioid overdose. The majority of opioid-related deaths occurring in Peoria County are caused by fentanyl, either alone or combined with cocaine or heroin.
In 2017 in Peoria County, alcohol was involved in 24 deaths per 100,000 residents. Peoria is home to several breweries and distilleries that make this city appealing to those who consume alcohol. Though alcohol is a legalized and widely available substance in the U.S., it is extremely habit-forming and can easily lead to addiction when misused.
Fortunately, people living in Peoria who suffer from addiction can receive safe, high-quality addiction treatment from Indiana Center for Recovery in Bloomington.

Alcohol Detox in Peoria
Alcohol detox is essential for anyone who is suffering from alcohol misuse and addiction. Stopping alcohol “cold turkey” is extremely dangerous because it can increase the risk of complications, including dehydration and seizures. Alcohol detox can help patients avoid these complications, as they are monitored closely by nurses and doctors who can intervene when necessary to reduce symptoms.
Symptoms of alcohol withdrawal often get treated with medications that reduce specific symptoms, such as headache and nausea. Patients with moderate to severe symptoms may receive a sedative to help their bodies relax and stabilize. Alcohol withdrawal symptoms usually last between 2 and 10 days. People in Peoria who need alcohol detox can travel to our Bloomington facility and stay there for the duration of withdrawal.
Opioid addiction comes with a high risk of overdose—why opioid detox represents a critical stage of overcoming this substance use disorder. Opioid detox, which helps patients feel more comfortable during withdrawal, involves medications that reduce severe symptoms, including insomnia, drug cravings, and muscle pain. People in Peoria suffering from addiction to painkillers, heroin, and other opioids can receive this drug detox in Bloomington and return home free of opioid dependence
Benzodiazepines are commonly prescribed to treat anxiety and insomnia but can contribute to drug dependence and addiction when used for a few weeks. Those who abruptly stop using benzodiazepines will often suffer highly severe anxiety and insomnia, along with gastrointestinal problems, including nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Benzodiazepine detox involves a gradual tapering off this medication, which means daily dosages are reduced little by little over several weeks. That minimizes the severity of symptoms so patients can feel more comfortable during withdrawal.
Suboxone is a medication commonly prescribed to treat opioid dependence. However, Suboxone is also an opioid and can lead to dependence and addiction when misused. Like benzodiazepine detox, Suboxone detox uses a tapering schedule that allows patients to reduce their daily dosages gradually over time. That makes withdrawal symptoms milder so patients can experience a safe and comfortable recovery.
Crack/cocaine detox and methamphetamine detox involve closely monitoring the patient’s symptoms and using medications to reduce specific symptoms as they arise. Stimulants produce various withdrawal symptoms that vary from one patient to the next based on the type and amount of stimulant used and the purity. Patients may also receive antipsychotics, antidepressants, or sedatives to reduce psychological withdrawal symptoms, such as agitation, paranoia, and depression.
