Delaware Alcohol Abuse Centers and Programs


The most abused drugs in the state of Delaware are crack cocaine, heroin, MDMA, and marijuana. Throughout the state, these four drugs are what make up the highest traffic. MDMA, which is street named ecstacy, is the most widely-abused of these, and is popular with students from high school and university. Delaware is a prime target for drug traffic because of its location near several larger states and cities as well as Interstate 95. New York City, Maryland and Pennsylvania are the most common sources of the flow of drugs in Delaware.

Club drugs are more popular now because of how close Delaware is to the coast and clubs/nightlight that are therefore associated. All types of club drugs, like ecstacy, are scattered throughout the state. It’s very common to have drug runners pose as tourists to smuggle ecstacy or heroin through the state, although along the interstate highway, there have been many captured in the effort to distribute. Delaware’s drug laws are quite strict, and many people thing that they are the first step that is most effective in rehabilitation on a state-wide basis.

In Delaware, holistic drug rehab treatment centers are becoming more popular. This is because in addition to cleaning the mind, body and spirit of drugs, it also cleanses it of other unwanted influences and helps to balances the full being. To start along treatment, intervention measures are taken to convince the addict that they present a threat that needs to be addressed. Because this is a very awkward situation, the centers offer advice and counseling in actually planning the intervention. Once someone is convinced that a rehab program for drugs is necessary, it gets much easier because there are several options.

Depending on the type of drug abused and length of time, the drug rehab center will run diagnostic tests on the addict to figure out how best to go about detox. Sometimes a rapid detox will suffice, in which anesthesia is given and a purging agent washes the body clean during the unconscious time. This is mainly used for opiate detox, because those types of drugs tend to leave the system the most quickly and painfully, so anesthesia is necessary.

Delaware, like other states, offers residential detox programs where the recovering addict is given a place to stay in the center to live, where they participate in a program of counseling, therapy, and group therapy to learn new and healthier ways of coping. This enables them to function properly in society and to avoid potential relapsing in future, despite encountering situations that might trigger it.

Should one’s schedule be too busy, there are outpatient detox and rehab programs available. Nearly 90% of patients opt for outpatient treatment, though rare cases do dictate that the patient needs to have residential treatment. The level of care is the same, but outpatient programs don’t offer twenty-four hour access to nurse as does residential care. For those who find themselves financially burdened by the prospect of recovery, Delaware offers financial aid programs in place. Addicts simply have to go to their local Social Services office where they get the appropriate paperwork.
