Illinois Drug Rehabilitation
In 2006, 112,368 people were arrested on drug charges. Because of all of these arrests, the state needed to increase its number of drug courts. As of 2007, Illinois had plans to add eight more drug courts to its already existent 10, and the problem does not appear to be decreasing quickly. Just one example is the 778 methamphetamine labs that were reported in 2007. The problem continued to grow with a nine percent increase in methamphetamine lab seizures in 2009.
