  • The Illinois Department of Human Services, Division of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse envisions a society in which people with a history of alcohol or drug problems, people in recovery, and people at risk for these problems are valued and treated with dignity and where stigma, accompanying attitudes, discrimination, and other barriers to recovery are eliminated. We envision a society in which substance abuse and dependence is recognized as a public health issue, a treatable illness for which individuals deserve treatment. We also strive for a society in which high quality services for alcohol and drug problems are widely available and where treatment is recognized as a specialized field of expertise.
