Kent Sussex Community Services (KSCS) began in 1970 as a small methadone maintenance program, established by a volunteer staff that included physicians and nurses. These volunteers recognized the need for treatment as heroin overdoses became prevalent in the area. Over the course of 40 years, KSCS has evolved from a small methadone clinic to a comprehensive behavioral health and community services organization that provides ethical and supportive evidence-based treatment to assist in combating the opioid epidemic facing Delaware and the nation; and prevention, education, case management services to Delawareans who are at risk or living with chronic diseases.
