Addiction Resources in Delaware

Over 20 million Americans had a substance abuse disorder in 2015.  It is the leading cause of accidental death in the United states, and over 20,000 of those overdose deaths are related to prescription pain relievers (American Society of Addiction Medicine).

Addiction is everywhere, even in Delaware.
