Illicit Drugs

Illicit Drug Addiction


Illicit drugs are broken down into two types. The first type are drugs that are illegal to process, sell, and consume. That includes drugs like cocaine, heroin and methamphetamines. The second type of illicit drugs are those that can be legally prescribed, but are obtained and consumed through illegal means. There are a wide variety of illicit drugs that affect the body and brain in very different ways. Here are the different forms of illicit drugs that are commonly abused in the United States:


  • Stimulants: These include cocaine and amphetamines. They cause hyperactivity, increasing brain activity and heart rate. This leads to an increased sense of alertness.
  • Opioids: Opioids slow down the central nervous system and affect chemicals in the brain that regulate mood. They also help minimize pain.
  • Hallucinogens: Marijuana, psilocybin mushrooms, and LSD are all forms of hallucinogens. They target the brain’s perception of space, time, and reality.

To have met and been a part of ARC has brought me new friends and newfound family. It’s amazing when you can see a bright new future ahead. My children love having mom back. Don’t wait!! ARC is the best recovery campus out there. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

A mother

Upon arrival to ARC, I was treated with kindness and respect. That was the way it was during my entire stay. The therapist I had was always willing to listen to me as long as I needed and gave a positive response when needed and a word of advice if she thought it would be useful. I will recommend America’s Rehab Campuses to whomever I know needs a place that will change their lives for the better. Thank you for all you’ve done for me and my family

ARC provide me with a safe, comfortable environment. I was treated like a person, not a drug addict. The staff is excellent and helpful. They really care about patients and are willing to do anything to help. They allow you to work in an environment where you are not ashamed to explore your addiction and find the root causes.

A recovered addict

For over four years now, I have struggled with alcoholism. I have been in and out of at least six detox centers. I had been sober for 17 months at the time of my last relapse. I knew I needed help…the kind of help only an inpatient rehab center could provide. The decision to come to ARC has been the best decision I have ever made and it most likely saved my life. The ARC staff are invested in helping their clients achieve recovery—not only sobriety, true recovery. The tools I am learning at ARC are life transforming. Having staff support from people who are compassionate and understanding is truly a gift.

A recovered addict

I felt extremely blessed to have been able to be a client of ARC and I highly recommend anyone with an alcohol or drug addiction to check it out. It’s our life and our sobriety so we need to invest as much energy into being sober as we did getting high. Any program is what you make it, but if there is anywhere that a person with an addiction can succeed in starting a sober life…it’s ARC.

A recovered addict

Before coming to ARC, I was living a life of homelessness and hopelessness. My addiction had taken me so low that I could not envision how I could go on living. Now through individual and group counseling and support from my peers I am clean and sober. I have hope again and am ready for the next step in my recovery. In short, being here at ARC has saved my life.

A recovered addict

Looking in the mirror today, I can hardly recognize the sober, hopeful, happy woman looking back at me. 30 short days ago I walked into ARC a drunken, broken person. After struggling through 30+ years of alcohol abuse, my disease had started rapidly progressing. In the past 5 years I have been in emergency rooms, detox centers and psychiatric hospitals 20+ times. I had lost all hope of ever overcoming my addiction. As I leave ARC on my new sober, hopeful journey, I feel confident in my ability to maintain it one day at a time, using the tools and healing I have received and integrated into my life. Thank you ARC!

A recovered alcoholic

This place is great—caring staff and wonderful people. The other clients, I call them my friends, have been a great support system for me. I wish everybody with addiction could find a rehab center experience like this one. God bless everyone that works here…you helped save my life.

A recovered alcoholic

ARC provided a plan for me to comfortably regain control of my life. Beautiful facility, friendly staff, and a well-balanced program for recovery.

A recovered addict

Thanks to ARC…being here has really opened my eyes. A couple of months ago I had no hope and now my life is turning around. I started seeing that there is more to life than just drugs. Thanks to the ARC staff for being there for me.
