According to officials of the County of Lake, County Board Chairman Aaron Lawlor announced that he would be on a 30-day leave of absence to receive treatment at the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation Treatment Center. Sources say that he began the program on July 9, 2018. The specific drug that Lawlor is receiving treatment for was not disclosed.

"I am grateful to have the love and support of my family, friends and an amazing team of professionals and clients at Hazelden Betty Ford who help me in my recovery every day," Lawlor said in a statement.

'I'm getting to know myself again and getting back to the Aaron people knew before addiction took hold of my life. The Aaron who works hard, who believes deeply in service to others and especially, who smiles," he continued.

"Every community in America is touched by addiction; and Lake County is no different. Like so many, I am dealing with an addiction and am getting help," Lawlor said.

The Illinois State Board of Elections has fined Lawlor political committee $15,000 for failure to make the required fillings and disclosures as well as for failing to respond to their inquiries. County Court records show a judgement for $4,770 to Capital One Bank, and his home reportedly has been foreclosed my MB Financial Bank.

Aaron Lawlor's salary as Chair of the Lake County Board is approximately $90,931.
