A great place to go for recovery, growth and community!
It is better to lead than follow. That is why Kent Sussex Community Services is considered to be one of the major public outpatient addiction, mental health, treatment & HIV counseling, testing and case management Centers in Delaware’s lower counties , with offices in Dover, Georgetown, and Laurel. We view our organization as a community of recovery that offers individual treatment designed with respect to the needs, values, and diversity of each person seeking help. Services including detoxification are provided on an outpatient basis where persons can remain in their homes without interruption to their jobs. We offer individual and group counseling as well as medication assisted treatment that is evidence based and proven by extensive research to be effective. Although many persons achieve and maintain recovery without the use of medication, many persons find the support they receive through medication to be critical to their recovery efforts. We offer state of the art medication therapies for the treatment of substance use and mental health disorders. While working a recovery program that includes counseling therapy and peer fellowship, persons in need of medication assisted treatment may have medication dispensed at the clinic on
daily basis or by prescription. Individual medication regimens depend on the level of care desired by the person being served and deemed medically appropriate by the KSCS physician and staff treatment team. Our service array is primarily designed to address substance use, and co-occurring mental health disorder. Many persons entering treatment have additional challenges which we believe have a tremendous impact on recovery. These often include co-occurring trauma, physical health disorders, or problems in other life dimensions, such as employment, housing, family relations, or legal concerns. Many of these challenges can be addressed within the KSCS constellation of services. For needs that fall outside our service array, our staff and peers have an extensive knowledge of local resources and make every effort ensure that persons seeking help have access to services that best meet their needs. Persons joining our community will find a welcoming environment with caring professional staff and peers to support them in their journey of recovery. Our substance use treatment programs are funded and licensed by the Delaware Health and Social Services, Division of Substance Abuse and Mental Health and Accredited by the International Consortium on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF).
Our mission is to assist persons with single or co-occurring disorders in addiction, mental health, and/or HIV / AIDS to achieve and sustain recovery; improving their health, wellness, capacity to live a self directed life, and reach their full potential. We accomplish this, while protecting the public through the provision of quality, culturally competent, and financially responsible services.
