For over 40 years, the Illinois Institute for Addiction Recovery has helped thousands of individuals begin their recovery journey. Two giving opportunities are available to support the mission of providing quality and compassionate care.

Illinois Institute for Addiction Recovery
The Ameel Rashid Scholarship for Addiction Recovery was established in 2007, in honor of Dr. Ameel Rashid. Dr. Rashid was committed to serving individuals with addiction through his service, vision, leadership, and generosity.

The Ameel Rashid Scholarship helps to provide treatment for individuals that are unable to meet the financial requirement of services. This fund may also provide financial assistance to people who initially meet the financial criteria, but their financial resources are depleted prior to successful completion of treatment, and they are unable to continue with treatment without financial assistance.

To make a gift, please visit the UnityPoint Health – Methodist | Proctor Foundation website at http://www.unitypoint.org/peoria/foundation Select IL Addiction Recovery Center as designated location for your donation.


Dr. James D. Bowman Memorial Garden

The Dr. James D. Bowman Memorial Garden is located just behind the Illinois Institute for Addiction Recovery at Proctor Hospital. Dr. James Bowman helped the addiction center grow to one of the world’s leading addiction treatment and training centers specializing in the treatment of chemical, gambling, spending, shopping, food, sexual, and Internet addiction as well as the treatment of chronic pain with addiction. The garden serves patients, families, and individuals, as a peaceful sanctuary for quiet reflection and intimate family gatherings. Personalized commemorative bricks are available with two or three lines of text as a memorial for yourself or someone you know.
