Greenbelt Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources

Not many people know that Greenbelt, a suburb of Washington, D.C., was built in 1937 as a utopian experiment during President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal era. It was the first town in the country built as a planned cooperative community to help alleviate the housing and job shortage problems. To live in this originally segregated town, you would have had to apply to become a resident and it was almost like a job application where you had to agree to participate in the fabric of the community. If you were one of the lucky ones chosen to live in the town’s low-income housing, you would have been in on the ground floor of forming the town government, newspaper, police and fire departments.

Today, much of the original features of the Greenbelt exist, though the town has expanded with shopping centers, corporate buildings and private housing developments. Even some of the original families still live in Greenbelt. As conforming as Greenbelt was supposed to be as it aged, the National Historic landmark city is now a very diverse community welcoming people of every background. Though it still retains its tight community feeling, typical of most towns across the country, many residents of Greenbelt struggle with substance misuse.

The amount of overdose-related deaths in the first quarter of 2017 doubled from the first quarter of 2016 when there were 20 individuals in the county who died from drug and alcohol intoxication. As with many other towns across the country dealing with the same issue, drug-related deaths are a result of the increase in popularity of fentanyl and carfentanil, the additives which are blended in with other opioids.

You’re not alone in this struggle.
