Kent Sussex Community Services (KSCS) established in 1970 as a small methadone maintenance program, organized by a volunteer staff that included physicians and nurses. These volunteers recognized the need for therapy as heroin overdoses became prevalent in the area. Over the course of 40 years, KSCS has developed from a small methadone clinic to a comprehensive behavioral health and community services organization that affords ethical and supportive evidence-based treatment to help in combating the opioid epidemic facing Delaware and the nation; and prevention, education, case management services to Delawareans who are at risk or living with chronic diseases.
They provide recovery services to individuals at risk for or living with chronic diseases.

My experience here was the genesis of an ever-evolving life in recovery from alcoholism and addiction. My best decision, ever. Thank you all.
This place has an amazing program. It is smaller and more intimate and the building is very nice. I saw a good hospitalization from Sussex County Counseling Services.
I would like to talk about a special man. I called Sussex County Counseling Services over tow and a half years ago because my daughter needed rehab but refused to go. But he never gave up he is a caring person and because of his Dedication, my daughter finally went to rehab. I feel that everyone I spoke to were very caring but he went above and beyond. I will be forever grateful

Yes, they will provide a medication after over the treatment program.
You can leave the rehab any time, no one will compel you to stay at the rehab. However, dedication and continued treatment are required to fight addiction and achieve a sober life.
There are various stages of addictions. The initial stage is the functioning individual with the addiction. The most common scenario is they have a job and their relationships are intact, but their health is depleting slowly because of their dependence.
Narcotic analgesics (painkillers) are drugs that can reduce pain, cause numbness and/ or induce a state of unconsciousness. They have the tendency to cause tolerance and addiction
