The Connections Withdrawal Management Center in Harrington opened in November 2015. The facility at 1 East St. serves as the primary detoxification center for residents of Kent and Sussex counties suffering from substance use disorders.

For assistance, call 302-786-7800.

The medically monitored, clinically managed facility can help people withdraw from  alcohol, opioids, and benzodiazepines.

The facility, located in the former Spartan Station shopping center, is a safe and secure location staffed  around the clock with professional personnel.

The Withdrawal Management Center offers 12 23-hour assessment beds and 16 inpatient beds. The staff includes peer recovery coaches to assist patients during their stay.

Outpatient ambulatory detox, using opioid-replacement therapy, is available for people with addictions to heroin or prescription painkillers.  Post-withdrawal intensive outpatient and medication assisted treatment is also available.

Paul Dill, who was a detox patient and a successful participant of the Intensive Outpatient Program, was hired as a peer support specialist at the clinic.

A talented artist, Dill also shared his special gift with Connections – adorning one of the clinic’s walls with an eye-grabbing mural.

Dill’s floor-to-ceiling creation, made with acrylic paint on a 20-foot-wide canvas, features a lighthouse whose beams shine across stormy seas – an apt metaphor for the Harrington clinic.

“Connections was such a big part of my recovery,’’ Dill said. “The people here were really great to me and I wanted to do some service,’’ Dill said. “They gave me my life. The least I can do is give them a picture.”
