If you are suffering from addiction and/or alcoholism in Delaware, Recovery Hub can help you find the right drug rehab today! Drugs make their way here from major highways and urban areas, giving way to addictions to marijuana, heroin, prescription painkillers, and other substances.
Delaware is one of the worst states for addiction and substance abuse, especially among young adults (people between the ages of 18 and 25). It’s recently ranked among the highest for: illicit drug use among young adults within the past month, marijuana use among young adults age within the past month, and use of illicit drug excluding marijuana among young adults in the past month. It also ranks among the top 10 states for cocaine use among ages 12 and up within the past year.
Heroin is a common drug of abuse and addiction in Delaware. The last few years has seen heroin take over locations once dominated by powder crack, cocaine, and other drugs. However, the greatest drug problem comes not from powder sold by drug dealers, but from pills sold by pharmacies. The majority of admissions into Delaware drug rehabs are due to painkillers such as OxyContin, Vicodin and Percocet. Heroin and marijuana are neck-and-neck for the 2nd biggest drug problem, and more addicts are turning to heroin and “street drugs” as painkillers are becoming more strictly regulated.
