Schaumburg's Top Addiction Resource & Information Guide

Schaumburg, Illinois, a village near to Chicago and straddling the state’s two largest counties, is only partially immune to big-city problems. Despite a lower poverty rate and higher median incomes and property values than the state average, it has a higher crime rate.

Last Edited:


Schaumburg, Illinois, is the 12th largest city (actually, a village) in the state, with a population of 78,723 as of the 2020 census. Money magazine ranked it the best place to live in Illinois in 2018. Despite this, Schaumburg’s proximity to Chicago means it still faces some of the big city’s woes.

Problems Facing Schaumburg, Illinois

Schaumburg didn’t appear on MoneyGeek’s list of the 303 safest cities in the US—Chicago was 273rd—but that’s most likely due to its size. In a ranking of the safest cities in Illinois, Schaumburg:

  • Ranked 187th safest city in Illinois out of 265.
  • Had 1 violent crime per 1,000 people.
  • Had 21.3 property crimes per 1,000 people.

To contrast, Chicago:

  • Ranked 242nd safest city in Illinois.
  • Had 9.4 violent crimes per 1,000 people (more than nine times as many).
  • Had 29.8 property crimes per 1,000 people.

It’s not entirely immune, however. Schaumburg’s crime rate per square mile was 86, more than 2.5 times the rate in Illinois as a whole (31) and the national median rate (28.3), but much lower than Chicago’s 464.

Substance Abuse in Schaumburg, Illinois

In Schaumburg, Illinois, overdose deaths increased during the COVID-19 pandemic.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the number of opioid overdose deaths increased 36%, from 50,963 to 69,710, between 2019 and 2020. Other drug overdose deaths increased less than 12%, from 21,188 to 23,621.

At its peak, in the six months following the arrival of COVID-19 in the US, the overdose death rate increased 90% while a shelter-at-home order was in effect. While still higher than its pre-COVID-19 level, it dropped 25% when the order ended.

The Illinois overdose death rate in 2020 was neither the highest nor the lowest in the nation. It ranked 24th with 28 per 100,000, up about 25% from 22 in 2019.

The highest rate was reported in West Virginia: 74 per 100,000. South Dakota had eight per 100,000. The average rate in the US was 29.4 per 100,000.

The most frequent causes of overdose deaths in Cook and DuPage counties were opioids.


The most frequent causes of overdose deaths in Cook and DuPage counties were opioids.

Exclusive of other causes of overdose deaths, the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office estimated more than 2,000 opioid overdose deaths in 2020, a more than 50% increase over 2019’s 1,277. Between December 2019 and October 2020, the average number of opioid-related overdose deaths per week rose from a low of 22.6 to a high of 43.4 before falling again to 31.2.

In DuPage County, there were 112 opioid overdose deaths in 2020, a 17% increase over 2019.

There are several types of opioids. From 2019 to 2020, the number of overdose deaths due to any drug increased 38% from 1,357 to 1,874 in Cook County, 131 to 156 in DuPage, more than 80% due to opioids, including:

  • Synthetic opioids: 883 to 1,387 in Cook; 87 to 111 in DuPage
  • Heroin: 594 to 699 in Cook; 50 to 46 in DuPage
  • Natural and semi-synthetic opioids: 192 to 250 in Cook; 26 to 25 in DuPage

The vast majority of opioid deaths were due to synthetic opioids, such as fentanyl. Heroin, an illegal semi-synthetic opioid, caused about half as many deaths; however, still a considerable number.

Fentanyl is up to 50 times as strong as heroin, making an accidental overdose much more likely. Worse, people often don’t know they are using fentanyl because it is added to or substituted for other drugs or pressed into pill form and sold as prescription opioids.

Prescription drugs, natural and semi-synthetic, only accounted for about 15% of opioid overdose deaths, 13% of any drug, probably because there was a crackdown on their overprescription. That crackdown fueled the growth of illegal opioids.

Other drugs

Although opioids suck all the oxygen out of the room when discussing overdose deaths, other drug-use and overdose deaths are also increasing in Cook and DuPage counties:

  • Cocaine: 526 to 703 in Cook, up by 33%; 43 to 50 in DuPage, up by 16%.
  • Alcohol: 349 to 434 in Cook, up almost 25%; 13 to 12 in DuPage, down less than 5%.
  • Benzodiazepines: 265 to 405 in Cook, up more than 50%; 44 to 57 in DuPage, up about 30%.
  • Psychostimulants: 74 to 130 in Cook, up 75%; 11, no change, in DuPage.

Cocaine is an illegal stimulant. Psychostimulants are prescription drugs with similar effects used to treat attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder and narcolepsy, although they are also misused as study drugs or party drugs.

Benzodiazepines are prescription central nervous system (CNS) depressants, sedatives, and hypnotics. So is alcohol, though it can have stimulant effects.


Alcohol can be deadly even when individuals don’t have a severe alcohol use disorder (AUD). Because of the seriousness of alcohol addiction, there are rehabs in Joliet—and all around the state—that will treat anybody.

An alcohol use disorder usually means that individuals can’t stop or limit their drinking. Binge drinkers drink five or more standard drinks in two hours on one or several occasions a month but don’t display the several-times-a-day drinking that indicates an AUD.

Still, in 2017, more than half a million Chicagoans (505,000) binge drank in the previous month, and 40,000 (8%) did it five times or more.

The percentage of adults reporting excessive drinking in 2018 was 22% in Cook County and 21% in DuPage County.

Substance Abuse Treatment in Schaumburg, Illinois

Substance use disorders (SUDs), including addiction, are not entirely due to drug-using behavior. SUDs are in part a genetic predisposition that, when triggered, become a chronic illness like diabetes. That’s why some people can drink, smoke, and even use opioids or other illicit drugs without developing a dependence.

Other people become hooked almost the first time they use a substance.

Drug Rehab

Not all drugs requiring rehab treatment are necessarily illegal. Sometimes a legally prescribed drug leads to a substance use disorder that requires professional addiction treatment to stop. Drug rehab is incredibly common, so it is offered all over the state—in rehabs in Naperville, IL, for example.

Types of drugs requiring rehab include:

  • Opioids. These include prescription drugs—such as oxycodone (OxyContin, Percocet) and hydrocodone (Vicodin, Norco)—and illegal opioids (heroin, fentanyl).
  • Marijuana. While natural cannabis has never by itself resulted in an overdose death—though it can be addictive—so-called synthetic marijuana—also called K2 and spice—is not so benign.
  • Stimulants. These include prescription stimulants—including attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder medications such as Ritalin, Concerta, and Adderall—and Illegal stimulants such as cocaine and methamphetamine.
  • Central nervous system (CNS) depressants. Prescription depressants—benzodiazepines (Valium, Xanax, Halcion, Ativan, Klonopin), barbiturates, other sedatives, tranquilizers, and hypnotics—can treat anxiety, stress, and insomnia. Illegal depressants include so-called date rape drugs such as gamma-hydroxybutyric acid (GHB) and Rohypnol.

Alcohol Rehab

Alcohol is usually considered separately from drugs, but it also can affect and alter the brain and can require rehab. It is especially deadly when used alongside other drugs.

Dual Diagnosis Rehab in Schaumburg, Illinois

Mental health and SUDs are often closely related, as much as 50% of the time. One may even be the cause of the other. Despite this, not all substance abuse programs check their clients for co-occurring mental health disorders. Dual diagnosis treatment is essential for those with co-occurring disorders, so consider comparing programs with nearby facilities—like in Berwyn, Illinois, for example.

This is known as a co-occurring disorder or dual diagnosis. Both disorders need to be treated if recovery is to last, but sometimes one disorder isn’t even diagnosed. This can sabotage treatment or even make the mental illness or SUD worse.

Among people with an SUD:

  • More than a quarter (28%) also had a serious mental illness (SMI).
  • Almost one-fifth (19.3%) had any mental illness (AMI).
  • Only 5% had no mental illness.

Among youth in community-based substance use disorder treatment programs, the rate is even higher. More than 60% were also diagnosed with a mental illness.

Reasons why a substance use disorder and a mental illness may co-occur include:

  • Both were caused by some common disorder, such as trauma.
  • Self-medication: The individual tries to treat the symptoms of a mental illness with drugs.
  • Substance use may trigger a mental illness.

Some addiction treatment professionals believe only one disorder, the primary one, needs treatment. The secondary disorder, caused by the first, will then disappear.

Even when it’s possible to determine which came first, a substance use disorder is physical as well as mental. The changes to the brain will not necessarily go away. According to the best current science, there’s always a risk of relapse no matter how long the client remains sober.

The question remains how or in what order to effectively treat two co-occurring disorders:

  • Treat one. When that’s completed, treat the other.
  • One team treats one disorder; another team treats the other separately.
  • One team treats both disorders.

Holistic Rehab

Since SUDs have physical and mental causes and effects, holistic rehab treats the whole person with practices that combine mental or spiritual activities with physical ones, including:

  • Meditation and other mindfulness practices.
  • Yoga, tai chi, and other gentle movement exercises.
  • Art, music, and other occupational therapies.
  • Massage, acupuncture, and other physical therapies.
  • Horse riding or equine therapy.
  • Health diet.

Luxury Rehab

Another difference in treatment centers is physical comfort and aesthetics. Rehab doesn’t require sleeping on stone cots or wearing a hairshirt to be successful. Those sorts of privations can be distracting. Those with the means or insurance coverage might choose luxury rehab instead.

Attractive furnishings, a swimming pool, good food, and a beautiful landscape might make recovery easier to cope with and no less effective, provided the client still does the necessary work.

It’s not a resort. Hard work and a willingness to change are still necessary. Note that luxury rehab may not be offered everywhere. With that being said, consider larger cities, like a program in Chicago, for finding luxury rehab.

Student Substance Abuse in Schaumburg, Illinois, Colleges

Although several Schaumburg, Illinois, campuses have closed in recent years, three still seem to be open:

There are many more in surrounding cities. The nearby metropolis of Chicago is home to more than a dozen national and regional colleges and universities, plus art, faith, and health profession schools, including:

Substance use is most threatening before age 25 because the brain is still developing. That means the brain is most susceptible to substance use disorders and most vulnerable to damage or disruption of the normal development process.

Those who use prescription opioids without a prescription (or other than as prescribed) had the greatest risk of becoming addicted to heroin, especially if such use began between the ages of 10 and 12. In the US, heroin use typically begins between ages 17 and 18, with the highest rates of heroin use between the ages of 18–25.

While opioid use is more often fatal, alcohol is the most common substance use disorder. A legal drinking age of 21 hasn’t ended underage drinking.

In 2019, Schaumburg had one of the 10 highest rates of binge drinking in the US. In 2017, in nearby Chicago, of public high school students surveyed:

  • 57.3% used alcohol (60.4% in the US overall).
  • 23.9% recently used alcohol (29.8% US).
  • 16.8% started drinking before age 13 (15.5% US).
  • 9.1 % recently binge drank (13.5% US).

Some universities use the harm-reduction program BASICS—Brief Alcohol Screening and Intervention of College Students—to inform and influence students’ drinking behaviors with empathy rather than judgmental confrontation. There are two 50-minute interviews, two weeks apart, including a self-report questionnaire and personalized feedback.

Choosing From Rehabs in Schaumburg, Illinois

Not all substance use disorder treatment centers are the same or equal. Clients and their families should make sure that a given center meets their needs. Here are some things to check or consider:


Make sure the treatment center meets at least the minimum state or federal requirements for a substance use disorder treatment facility by checking on its accreditation.

There are three independent bodies approved for this purpose by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Association (SAMHSA):

A fourth body, LegitScript, while not approved by SAMHSA, is required by Google and Facebook before allowing advertisements.

Some addiction treatment centers also may get accreditation as a Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC) or a designated collaborative organization (DCO).

In Illinois, such facilities also require certification from the Illinois Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse Professional Certification Association (IAODAPCA).

Client-to-Staff Ratio

If a facility has too few staff or too many clients, the quality of care may be affected. A low ratio of clients per staff does not guarantee good care, but it usually helps.

While there is no nationwide standard for how low that ratio should be—and many states don’t specify a number either—ratios from three-to-one and 10-to-one have been suggested.

Treatment Options at Rehab Centers in Schaumburg, Illinois

According to the Illinois Department of Human Services, Division of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse (IDHS/DASA), services for alcohol and drug treatments (SUDs) include:

  • Early Intervention. Preventative, early, or pre-treatment for SUDs before the 11 diagnostic criteria have been met.
  • Case Management. The arrangement of complementary services to improve recovery outcomes.
  • Outpatient Treatment. The client lives at home and may attend school or continue to work, but visits the treatment center for several hours a week—usually nine or fewer—over a few days.
  • Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP). Like a standard outpatient, but more time spent on treatment—up to 19 hours a week—probably five days a week.
  • Detoxification. While outpatient clients have already detoxed—stopped using drugs and gone through at least the worst of withdrawal—others may still need medically monitored detoxification services. In some cases, withdrawal can be health- and life-threatening.
  • Residential Rehabilitation. More commonly known as inpatient programs, the clients live at the rehab facility so they can concentrate on recovery without distractions and so chances for relapse are kept to a minimum.
  • Residential Aftercare. When clients don’t feel ready to be on their own, they may try a halfway house, a living facility full of other people in recovery to reinforce and bolster each other’s resolve. Also known as recovery residences.

Expectations of Inpatient Drug Rehab in Schaumburg, Illinois

Although there are different types of rehabs, most have some things in common:

  • Intake. An interview and assessment on arrival to determine the client’s rehab treatment plan and aftercare plan.
  • Detox. Medically monitored withdrawal. Usually, this takes place in a separate medical facility.
  • Medication-assisted treatment (MAT). The use of specific drugs to manage opioid withdrawal by substituting safer opioids (narcotic replacement therapy)—such as methadone or buprenorphine (Suboxone)—or reducing alcohol cravings—acamprosate (Campral)—while rehab begins. Other drugs prevent intoxication—naltrexone (Vivitrol)—but not withdrawal or cause nausea if alcohol is consumed—disulfiram (Antabuse).
  • Behavioral therapies. Like psychotherapy or talk therapy, but focused on training the brain to cope without alcohol or drugs. These behavioral therapies include Cognitive-behavioral therapy, Dialectical behavior therapy, Rational emotive behavior therapy, Motivational interviewing, Contingency management, The Matrix Model.
  • Mental health care. For cases of dual diagnosis—the common co-occurrence of SUDs and mental health disorders, such as anxiety, stress, depression, or trauma—mental health counseling is available.
  • Holistic rehab treatments. Whole-person treatment with alternative therapies, including but not limited to mindfulness, meditation, yoga, horseback riding, and art or music therapies.

Aftercare Planning Procedures

Because substance use disorders are now believed to be chronic diseases, a continuum of care is needed to prevent relapse after leaving the rehab. This includes continued therapy, learning to avoid triggers (people, places, and situations that lead to drinking and drug use), and peer fellowships or support groups of other people in recovery from SUDs.

Support groups

The purpose of peer fellowship or support groups is to reinforce sobriety by associating with other people who also wish to abstain from the same substances, usually alcohol or drugs, or sometimes behaviors, such as gambling. Members of support groups may also offer advice, cautionary tales, and sometimes a helping hand or sympathetic ear.

There are two main types of support groups:

Twelve-step rehab

The Twelve Steps is a specific program, a series of acknowledgments and actions designed to accept that one has an SUD, make restitution to those harmed by this SUD (or at least try), and help others achieve sobriety, too. Meetings have no formal leaders, no SUD professionals, just other people with substance use disorders.

Twelve-step groups also encourage regular and frequent meetings, as often as once a day in the first month. These meetings should continue for life because relapse is always possible and also to act as sponsors for others who are new to abstinence and recovery.

Many 12-step programs also have corresponding groups for family and friends of people with SUDs.

  1. Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). The original 12-step group. There are two face-to-face meetings weekly in Schaumburg, IL, one online, plus more nearby and online.
  2. Al-Anon and Alateen. Meetings for the family and friends of those with alcohol use disorders (AUDs). There are more than 100 within 25 miles of Schaumburg, Illinois (more than a dozen Alateen), plus electronic meetings.
  3. Local Celebrate Recovery groups. A Christ-centered 12-step program for all SUDs. There are two meetings listed within 10 miles of Schaumburg, Illinois, plus another 15 within 25 miles.
  4. Adult Children of Alcoholics. Meeting for members of dysfunctional families with AUDs. There are about 15 face-to-face meetings within 20 miles of Schaumburg, plus online and telephone meetings.
  5. Narcotics Anonymous (NA). AA for drug use disorders. Twenty-two meetings are listed in Schaumburg, but more than 50 are within 20 miles of Schaumburg.
  6. Nar-Anon and Narateen. Al-Anon/Alateen for drug use disorders. Only one Nar-Anon meeting is listed in Schaumburg, plus virtual meetings (Narateen, too).
  7. Cocaine Anonymous. Cocaine-specific version of NA. None is listed in Schaumburg, but several nearby, plus virtual meetings.
  8. Crystal Meth Anonymous. NA for those with methamphetamine use disorders. Nine meetings near Schaumburg in Chicago, plus almost a dozen online meetings.
  9. Marijuana Anonymous. Marijuana-specific version of NA. No meetings in Schaumburg, but several online meetings.
  10. Dual Recovery Anonymous. Meetings for co-occurring SUDs and mental health disorders. No meetings in Schaumburg but a few within 30 miles.

Non-12-step rehab

Not all support groups adhere to the 12-step format. Most non-12-step groups say they are based on science or evidence, not faith. Groups include:

  1. SMART Recovery. Self-Management and Recovery Training uses facilitators trained in SMART’s science-based tools and techniques. The only three meetings in Schaumburg have moved online, but there are another dozen or so face-to-face meetings within 20 miles, more in Chicago, plus more online.
  2. LifeRing Secular Recovery. A secular peer fellowship. There’s only one meeting near Schaumburg in Chicago, plus online meetings.
  3. Women for Sobriety. By and for women in recovery. There are no meetings in Schaumburg but three meetings within 25 miles in Chicago.
  4. Moderation Management. Controlled drinking, not necessarily abstinence, is the goal. There don’t seem to be any face-to-face meetings in or near Schaumburg, or even Illinois, but there are phone and video meetings available.
  5. Parents of Addicted Loved Ones. A non-12 step (but not secular) alternative to Nar-Anon. No meetings in or near Schaumburg, Illinois (and only one in Illinois), but online meetings.
  6. Grief Recovery After a Substance Passing (GRASP). Non-12 step Nar-Anon for those whose loved ones did not survive their SUD. There are no meetings in Schaumburg, Illinois, but three monthly meetings within four to 25 miles of Schaumburg.

Veterans Affairs Addiction Treatment

As of 2019, about 2,246 veterans lived in Schaumburg, Illinois. Many of them have or will experience physical and mental health issues due to their time in service, including:

  • Medical problems: pain, seizures, diseases associated with unprotected sex or sharing needles (HIV/AIDS, hepatitis)
  • Mental health issues (anxiety, depression, stress, trauma), and severe mental illnesses such as bipolar disorder and schizophrenia) related to readjustment to civilian life
  • Substance use disorders. Alcohol, opioids, other prescription drugs, marijuana, and illicit drugs.

  • Chicago Vet Center. Counseling, outreach/referral services for combat Veterans and their families, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), alcohol and drug assessment, and suicide prevention referrals.

The Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) lists other Veterans resources not exclusive to Schaumburg or Illinois, including:

Paying for Rehabs in Schaumburg, Illinois

Although more than half of Americans have health insurance through their employers—and most of those are mandated to include mental health and substance abuse treatment as an essential health benefit—that doesn’t mean their plans will necessarily cover all of their rehab costs.

The Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse (AODA) treatment system of the Illinois Department of Human Services (IDHS) may cover some of the costs for evaluation, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation through Medicare and Medicaid.

The Addictions Treatment Program (ATP), which also accepts Medicaid, also provides some services on an ability-to-pay sliding scale, with no one turned away.

Traveling to Schaumburg, Illinois, Rehab Centers

Schaumburg has no large airports—just the small Schaumburg Regional Airport—but Chicago is only 30 miles away by car, with two large airports less than 50 miles away. Chicago O’Hare International Airport, the only one with high connectivity to other airports, is even closer.
