Delaware substance abuse treatment & counseling

 

Delaware substance abuse treatment & counseling

Do I need a referral?
While many of our clients are referred by an outside agency, that is absolutely not required. If you are concerned about your drinking or your drug use, please call and let us help.

Is there parking?
SODAT is located in downtown Wilmington, Delaware, so there are several garages and lots close by, as well as metered street parking. The meters are in effect from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm.

I was told I needed to get a substance abuse evaluation. What does that entail?
At SODAT, the process looks like this:

  • Attend an intake session. This will last about an hour and will include the completion of a basic medical questionnaire, as well as some additional administrative paperwork. You will then be scheduled for an individual appointment with a counselor for the evaluation.
  • Attend the evaluation. The evaluation can take anywhere from one to two hours, depending on the individual. The counselor will ask you questions about your living situation, your employment, any past or current substance use, any past or current mental health issues, as well as other questions designed to get as full a picture of you as possible.
  • Submit a drug test. SODAT personnel will collect a urine sample, which will be sent to a lab for testing. If you take any medications that are prescribed for you, please bring them to your intake, so we can exclude them from the test.

After the evaluation, SODAT’s clinical team will meet to determine what, if any, treatment is necessary for you. Prior to leaving the evaluation, you will be scheduled for an individual session to discuss the treatment recommendations.

Will you tell my boss/spouse/parents about the things I discuss?
NO. There is a federal law that protects the confidentiality of drug and alcohol records. No one at SODAT is allowed to discuss anything about you or your treatment without your permission. Part of the intake process is devoted to discussing who might need to know details about your care and completing the required written documentation to allow such disclosures.

Who should I call if I need help and SODAT is not open?
If you are experiencing a medical emergency, have taken an overdose, or have harmed yourself in any way,  DIAL 9-1-1 IMMEDIATELY
If you are having a psychiatric or substance abuse crisis and need assistance, call (800) 652-2929.

When are groups scheduled?
We offer both morning and evening group sessions and we make every effort to accommodate your schedule.

What if I just need to get a urinalysis?
If you need to have a drug test done, we can handle that for you. Drug screens are $40; screens submitted at SODAT are not covered by insurance.

My doctor has prescribed me medications that might show up in my drug test. What do I do?
Bring your counselor a copy of all of your prescribed medications, so we will have them on file.

What is a re-entry letter and when will I need one?
A re-entry letter is a letter permitting you to re-enter the DUI process after a non-compliance was issued.

DERP Non-compliances are issued for the following reasons:

  • Missing two or more scheduled appointments with DERP

When should I call DERP?
You must call DERP within 10 working days of your court date or within 10 working days of your probable cause DMV hearing (whichever happens first). You may initiate the process sooner if you wish. We can schedule you for an evaluation prior to any hearing, but you must provide your DUI ticket information to be seen.

What information should I have available when I call for an appointment?
Please have your ticket or court paper handy when you when you call.
We will need the following information:

  • Date of arrest,
  • BAC reading,
  • ticket number (also known as a citation number or summons number),
  • name of the court in which your case was or will be heard.

Diversion

How long is the Program?
The program is a minimum of six months. There is no early dismissal.

I forgot when I go to court.
You will be given a new court date at every appearance and will leave with a yellow sheet of paper with the date on it. If you lose the paperwork or forget your next court date, you can call the Drug Diversion Case Manager at the Superior Court of New Castle County at (302) 255-0703.

I can’t be in court on my scheduled date. What do I do?
Generally, court appearance cannot be rescheduled. However, if you have a compelling reason for not being able to attend, contact the Diversion Program Coordinator, Delisa Lusby, at SODAT at (302) 656-4044 and discuss the matter with her.

Why is alcohol use prohibited?
While you are in the Diversion Program, you must be drug free. Alcohol is a drug, so even if your offense was not related to alcohol and even if you are over 21, you must abstain from alcohol as well.
