Review by Contributors


NorthEast Treatment Centers (NET) is a nonprofit behavioral health care organization that offers a continuum of treatment programs for residents of Greater Philadelphia, Lehigh Valley, and Delaware. One of more than a dozen facilities operated by NET (including a counseling center and a behavioral health unit for children), the Kirkwood Recovery Center in Wilmington provides inpatient detoxification services to adults struggling with chemical dependency. It's the only non-hospital inpatient facility in the state to provide medical detox.

Kirkwood Recovery Center also offers outpatient programs, including medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for clients battling opioid use disorder. In 2017, 5,390 individuals were receiving MAT in Delaware, making up about 1.3 percent of individuals receiving MAT at a national level.


Kirkwood Recovery Center accepts clients 24/7 by referral or walk-in. During detox, clients are medically monitored around the clock. They're also introduced to the 12-step model of recovery, and provided with individual and group counseling, life skills training, and substance abuse education.

Post detox, clients may opt to enroll in one of Kirkwood's intensive outpatient programs (IOP). Specialized tracks are available for women and for clients with co-occurring disorders. Kirkwood is also one of just five substance abuse treatment facilities in Delaware (15 percent of all treatment facilities in the state) to provide a specialized program tailored to teens.


In addition to peer specialists, Kirkwood Recovery Center employs physicians and nurses, case managers, and substance abuse counselors. The one alum polled by to date gave the facility three out of five stars for its staff's level of training and experience.


There is currently no information provided by the facility regarding its living arrangements and related offerings. However, the sole alum polled by to date gave Kirkwood Recovery Center four out of five stars for its cleanliness and upkeep. By contrast, policies regarding outside communication, and exercise and leisure activities, received just one star apiece. The alum reported that few downtime activities were offered.


The one former client surveyed by at the time of this writing, an anonymous 18-to-25-year-old female, gave Kirkwood Recovery Center mixed to negative feedback. She awarded the facility just one out of five stars for its counseling options, its family participation, its connectivity, and its holistic offerings, and two stars for its administrative and discharge procedures. "This facility makes it hard to be rehabilitated because they treat every client the same," the alum noted. When asked, on a scale from one to five, if she would recommend the facility, the alum gave a rating of three.

Feedback was similar on Facebook[2], where the center received a 3.7 out of five star rating based on the opinions of 20 individuals. While one former client complained about rude staff, all of the other alumni who left feedback offered positive comments. "This place saved my life than you I am so greatful for this place an the people that work there," Justin wrote in representative review.

They are clean. They are limited to what sort of treatment you get. Everyone gets the same treatment. This facility makes it hard to be rehabilitated because they treat every client the same. They also don't have a lot of downtime activities at all, so clients tend to get bored easily, which is never good when they are trying to get clean.
