Find Detox Centers by Cities of Delaware

In the state of Delaware, the most overused recreational drugs are marijuana, heroin, ecstasy (MDMA), and crack cocaine; in terms of statewide dispersion, these are the most popular drugs circulating through the state. MDMA, or “ecstasy” is becoming increasingly popular within universities and schools. Interstate I-95 is the major pipeline for drugs to come through, so it is common to find drug shipments and increased drug abuse in locations near the highway. Most drug shipments come from the Northeast, with Maryland, Pennsylvania, and New York being the the most common origin for drugs found in Delaware. International exchanges happen as well; Delaware has close proximity to the coast and club drugs are most commonly found in coastal locations. Drug smuggling among tourists is seen often, with drugs being found in large quantities in campers, cars, and trucks. The state holds stringent rules that aim to jail drug users/smugglers as it is deemed a best first offense by the powers that be in Delaware.

Alternative, or “holistic” treatment methods are gaining popularity in Delaware. This holistic treatment aims to cleanse the full body and mind in addition to basic front line detoxification. Interventionary steps are used on the addict, and they are shown that their habit is making themselves dangerous to themselves and others. Most clinics assist in planning the intervention process with family and friends. An addict has plenty of options once they have admitted they have a problem and are ready to receive help. The intensity of the treatment is largely dependant upon the level of physical dependence, among other variables. Often times, a “rapid detox” is utilized, which is able to cleanse the patient within a period of hours rather than days or weeks. Rapid detox is more common for opiate addicts and it is done under generalized anesthesia. Evident pain and discomfort associated with withdrawal is well tolerated under sleep conditions.

Delaware offers certain “residential” detox programs that offer a long-term rehabilitation solution. In this type of program, the patient may partake in longer stays of up to 8 months while living at a treatment center. They are taught the skills to avoid temptation and stay sober after treatment. Outpatient detox is more popular (90% of rehab patients utilize outpatient therapy). In this type of situation, a patient enjoys the same therapy, but continues to live at home.

Delaware also offers monetary aid programs that will assist those of lesser means. Social service centers are a great way to getting the financial assistance needed for a rehabilitation program. The same financial assistance may be found at the rehabilitation center they choose for therapy.
