Introduction and Basic Services

Dover Behavioral Health System of Delaware is an addiction and co-occurring disorder treatment facility that serves adolescents and adults within Sussex and Kent counties. Clients can undergo inpatient detox services followed by outpatient programming that includes group and individual therapy, based on the 12-step philosophy, supplemented by holistic modalities and evidence-based care. In terms of treatment options in the state of Delaware, Dover Behavioral Health is about as comprehensive as it gets.

Facility and Meals

During the three to five day detox process clients stay in semi-private rooms with bathrooms. All linens are provided and there are laundry facilities on site. Common areas have comfortable chairs and TV for clients to enjoy during down time.

There is a cafeteria on site where three meals a day and evening snacks are served. Vending machines are available around the facility as well.

Treatment Protocol and Team

Though Dover Behavioral doesn't offer a longer term residential treatment program after the detox process, it is able to refer clients to different programs in the community. The outpatient tracks serve as a way to monitor clients after detox and provide a structured treatment program that allows them to still return home at night. After the initial assessment adults clients may enter into the Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP). This track has two time options, one is the daytime from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm, five days a week, and the evening PHP which is six days a week for four hours at a time.

Each client has a customized treatment plan that encompasses chemical dependency and mental health issues. Depending on the specific needs of each client, there are medication management options, group and individual therapy and AA meetings. Additionally, specialty treatment programs are available to those who are struggling with more than one addiction and for those who are in the military.

Therapeutic approaches vary from client to client, but CBT, trauma-informed care, Motivational Interviewing (MI) and DBT are common methods. There is also a holistic aspect that includes art therapy and meditation. There are psychoeducational group and lectures that integrate video and written assignments and relapse prevention, coping skills and an emphasis on improving communication skills and assertiveness training.

There is an experienced multidisciplinary team of clinicians with accreditations that include psychiatrists, LADCs, LCSWs and RNs.

Aftercare planning is part of every treatment program and can include continued group therapy or referrals to support communities. Attending 12-step meetings is strongly encouraged. Family and couples counseling is available on an individualized basis.


Dover Behavioral Health System offers a supportive and structured schedule that’s still flexible enough for men and women to live at home and maintain personal or professional responsbilities while in treatment. It offers a thorough blend of evidence-based practices, holistic approaches and peer support. Truly an asset in a state with a relatively small number of treatment facilities, Dover Behavioral Health System is a solid choice for individuals ready to begin recovery in a safe setting that can also provide comfortable detox.
