Was your rehab within the last 5 years ? If so, you might be a prohibited possessor in teh state of Illinois. There is a lot of conjecture online about this. The only way to be sure is to call the Illinois State Police and ask them.

Don't try to pull their leg, Illinois gives full access to mental health "prohibited persons" to the ISP databases. That includes involuntary holds for evaluation (5 year IL prohibition from arms), involuntary committals (lifetime prohibition federal), and I believe drug rehab. Give them a ring.

From the FOID application:

In the past 5 years, have you been a patient in any medical facility or part of any medical facility used primarily for the care or
treatment of persons for mental illness?
Guess it depends on what the "primary purpose" of that facility is... you might ask them as well.
