SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) -- Illinois Governor Pat Quinn has decided to scale back cuts to addiction treatment programs.
 
Illinois groups had protested the cuts saying they would drive up prison and hospital costs.
 
The drug and alcohol programs now face a $100 million cut instead of the original $208 million.
