Although Delaware is not the largest state in the country, there is a rather significant concentration of drug rehab centers in the area for those who need help. Illicit drug use in the state is about average and in line with the level of drug use throughout the rest of the Continental United States. There are a handful of drug treatment options in the state to provide patients with effective, quality treatment for addiction.
The majority of drug rehabs in Delaware are located in Wilmington and Dover but other smaller towns such as New Castle, Newark and Georgetown also offer their fair share of drug addiction treatment options. It’s usually a good idea to decide on a method of treatment prior to considering an exact location as some people benefit more from receiving treatment in a facility that’s close to home while others will find unique benefits in being relatively far from home when they get help.
Many people who seek treatment for substance abuse choose outpatient treatment, especially those who are entering drug rehab for the first time. In most cases, when outpatient treatment is the chosen method of care, a facility that’s close to home will provide the most cost effective option for recovery. Inpatient treatment, if you have the ability to get such, is often safer and more effective because it allows you to focus 100% of your time on treatment and recovery with limited chance of relapse occurring.
The environment that is provided in inpatient drug treatment centers will allow you to spend more time focusing on recovery which can greatly reduce the overall time that it takes to get well. A residential treatment program that lasts at least a couple of weeks is recommended prior to seeking the care of an outpatient rehab center. This can allow you the time to get past the stages of physical dependence and be better prepared for counseling and therapy that is to come.
