Rockford, Illinois Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation Centers

Rockford, Illinois is certainly not a household name, such as New York City or Los Angeles. However, Rockford of late is making a name for itself in one area in particular – the number of its residents who are addicted to heroin. The city and surrounding county count more than 50 deaths from heroin use and abuse since 2008 and the death toll continues to rise. Because of the severity of the heroin issue in Rockford, the urgency for drug treatment in the area has also continued to grow.

Heroin is a Sneaky Drug

Heroin is one of the more difficult illicit drugs for enforcement officials to track and stamp out. Because heroin trafficking does not create the massive drug cartel wars in the way cheaper, easier to produce and obtain street drugs such as crack cocaine and methamphetamine do, it can be more difficult to trace heroin dealing back to its source and eradicate the kingpins.

How Heroin Gets to Rockford

Because of Rockford’s proximity to Chicago importation of heroin is easy and fast. Drug enforcement officials in Rockford report that the heroin starts its journey in South America, traverses the country of Mexico, and then comes in through Texas and makes its way to Chicago, and then Rockford. One innovative way dealers have found to deal heroin is to set up a phone hotline, which a reporter for the local paper likened to that which is often used to “order a pizza”!
