ABOUT NORTHEAST TREATMENT CENTERS (NET) - KIRKWOOD DETOXIFICATION CENTER
Northeastern Treatment Centers (NET) is a nonprofit, behavioral health treatment organization that offers a full continuum of treatment programs for residents of Greater Philadelphia, Lehigh Valley, and Delaware. One of 15 facilities operated by NET, the Kirkwood Detoxification Center provides medically-monitored detoxification services for adults struggling with chemical dependency. Located in the community of Kirkwood, Del., 25 miles south of Wilmington, the detox center also offers short-term inpatient care, clinical case management, and transitional services.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Upon admission, clients may undergo an initial substance abuse assessment to determine an appropriate detoxification approach. The facility accepts clients 24/7 by referral or walk-in. Detoxification may include medication-assisted treatment to minimize the discomfort of withdrawal, proper hydration and nutrition, and 24-hour access to nursing and medical attention. The detox center also offers short-term inpatient programming that’s modeled after NET’s treatment approach.
NET’s treatment approach blends evidence-based treatments with an introduction to the 12-step model of recovery. During the short-term inpatient program, clients participate in individual counseling, group psychotherapy, life skills training, and psychoeducation classes. Clients may also attend on-site 12-step meetings. The facility’s website does not indicate an average length of inpatient care and detoxification, but states that clients “drive their own recovery and transition plan.”
To assist individuals who have undergone multiple detoxifications and/or treatment programs, the facility offers an early treatment engagement program to help prevent relapse. This post-detoxification program provides integrated case management and community-based peer mentorship to support individuals until they’ve successfully transitioned into a program to receive ongoing treatment.
Kirkwood Detoxification Center employs a treatment staff of physicians, licensed practical nurses, medical assistants, substance abuse counselors, case managers, and recovery peer specialists.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
According to the facility’s website, the detoxification facility offers “a safe and professional environment.” Although specific information concerning the facility is limited, the sole alum polled by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing gave the facility’s cleanliness and upkeep a rating of four out of stars, citing the facility’s cleanliness as its strength.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
While the alum polled by Rehabs.com appreciated the facility’s cleanliness, they gave more critical ratings for other aspects of the facility. The alum gave three out of five stars for the treatment staff’s level of experience and training, but offered just a two-star rating for the facility’s discharge planning and a poor one-star rating for the facility’s counseling options. “This facility makes it hard to be rehabilitated because they treat every client the same,” the alum wrote.
Secondary sources revealed mixed alumni opinion, with two five-star reviews and a one-star review on Google. Alum Mike gave the facility a one-star rating and criticized the facility’s staff. Alum Carolyn felt the treatment staff was “compassionate and helpful,” while Mike wrote: “I mean this place is a joke."
Kirkwood Detoxification Center accepts private insurance, as well as Medicaid. According to the facility’s website, the center also accepts uninsured clientele. Although the sole alum polled by Rehabs.com was overall critical of the facility, the survey respondent gave a perfect five-star rating for the facility’s affordability.
