Find Drug and Alcohol Treatment in Delaware That Works

The Small Wonder of the United States, Delaware is steeped in colonial history and continued Americana. Seashore scenes, picturesque parks and sparkling skylines make the First State a haven for those seeking quiet respite alongside industry and commerce.

As one of the most densely populated states in the country, Delaware serves as a prime example of American trends and culture. But some trends are better than others. When it comes to drug and alcohol addiction, the First State is far from last on the list. In fact, according to a report from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service Administration, 3.4 percent of those in Delaware were dependent on illicit drugs from 2013–2014 (higher than the national 2.6 percent).

It’s clear that Delaware, like many other states, is in need of services and resources for those struggling with addiction. Fortunately, there are many options for Delaware drug treatment and Delaware alcohol rehab. In addition to local options available in-state, there are many out-of-state facilities that offer full-service programs for those seeking more involved treatment.

Delaware’s Opioid Crisis

Despite its rich history and beautiful scenery, Delaware isn’t immune to the United States’ opioid epidemic. Doctors in the state and across the country began to prescribe opioids at a higher rate in the 1990s to help manage patient pain. Once the addictive power of these medications became clear, many states took measures to limit prescriptions. While opioid prescriptions in Delaware have slowly decreased in recent years, overdose deaths continue to rise. In 2011, 99.7 opioids per 100 residents were prescribed. This number dropped to 79.2 in 2016. Paradoxically, overdose deaths increased from 166 in 2011 to 285 in 2016. This is likely due to upticks in heroin and fentanyl use as prescription opioids became more difficult to obtain.

Delaware Drug Abuse

Substance use disorder can impact anyone, from any area, including Delaware. Some of the most prevalent substances across the country and the state today include alcohol, prescription painkillers, heroin and methamphetamine.

From 2010–2014
Received No Treatment for Alcohol Abuse

This includes individuals over the age of 12 diagnosed with alcohol dependence or alcohol use disorders. Unfortunately, only about 5,000 individuals (9.9 percent) who needed alcohol treatment in Delaware received help.

In 2016
Died from Overdose

This large number of overdoses can largely be attributed to increased rates of heroin, prescription drug, opioid, cocaine, crack and alcohol use across the state and in neighboring New York City, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C.

Fentanyl-Related Deaths Rose
from 2015–2016

The use of this powerful synthetic painkiller has become more and more common in recent years. The last time Delaware experienced this dramatic of an increase in fentanyl deaths was between 2012–2015, at 180 percent.

In 2013
Treated for Heroin

In recent years, this number has only continued to rise. In 2013, Delaware saw the most people in heroin recovery since at least 1987.

While the statistics may be startling, they show just how important Delaware drug treatment and alcohol care really are. For many, a recovery program can be a life-saving experience, whether it be a Delaware alcohol detox, inpatient, or outpatient drug rehab in Delaware. Many even find comfort and healing in group meeting programs. With the right resources, those in Delaware can overcome addiction and truly enjoy everything that the Small Wonder State has to offer.

Choosing a Delaware Rehab Facility

Whether you’re seeking a Delaware drug rehab center or alcohol rehab center — or a facility that offers treatment for both — there are many options to consider, including out-of-state facilities. Choosing a treatment center that meets all of your needs is important. No two centers are exactly alike in how they approach addiction. While weighing your options, it’s best to ask the following questions:

  • Is aftercare offered to aid in recovery following treatment?
  • What amenities and therapy programs are available?
  • Are there are any taper drugs used during detox?
  • What is the length of each program?
  • Are inpatient and outpatient programs offered?
  • Does the facility treat co-occurring disorders?
