Our Approach: The Delamere Treatment Model

When you’re looking for addiction help and treatment it can be hard to know which care provider to choose for you or a loved one. The Delamere Treatment Model is as unique as its setting. Following his own personal journey through addiction, our founder Martin Preston wanted to create an addiction treatment programme unlike any other. Since we opened in March 2020, we’re proud to have helped over 1,000 people. We have been inspected and rated by the Care Quality Commission and grown to a team of over 50 colleagues who support guests who come to stay with us. Outcomes and exemplary care inform everything we do at Delamere.

Holistic therapy for addiction treatment

Our approach to addiction treatment and residential rehabilitation is a holistic one, meaning that we consider all aspects of our guests’ physical and emotional well-being, avoiding the common practice of treating particular symptoms separately. Our addiction treatment models and holistic therapy methods are based on up-to-the-minute clinical evidence and advanced research and help take people out of the addictive cycle to overcome past trauma and other difficulties.

Our care ethos

Our aim is to bring about profound personal transformations that last. We’re proud to provide inspiring and effective recovery programmes that bring together the latest and the best therapeutic, somatic, and healing practices from the worlds of neurobiological science, psychotherapy, and positive psychology within a welcoming nurturing setting. Delamere’s programmes are designed and delivered by leading clinicians to achieve lasting outcomes.

What makes The Delamere Treatment model different?

Most facilities follow a 12-step addiction treatment model. A concept that was originally created by Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) in the 1930s with a heavily spiritual foundation. This has since been developed and is used in a wide range of peer-support and self-help programmes around the world. Whilst the guiding principles of this model are relatable, the Delamere Treatment Model offers a more tailored, therapeutic approach driven by the latest research.

The Delamere Treatment Model is person-centred and holistic. That means we listen to each guest’s unique story and respond with the type of support they need. We recognise what works for one person might not be right for another. Our programme is designed to deliver inspiring experiences using a range of innovative techniques that help guests understand the role of addictive behaviours in their lives and get to the heart of underlying problems.

Unlike the 12-step model, The Delamere Treatment Model has not been developed to treat one particular addiction. We offer proven and effective strategies to help people overcome alcohol addiction, drug addiction, prescription drug addiction, and a wide range of behavioural addictions and associated conditions, taking a guest centred approach to care planning.

The Delamere Treatment Model has been designed from scratch and is a bespoke model of addiction treatment that is not available elsewhere. It comprises four core phases which have been designed to accommodate the rapidly changing emotional and physical nature of early addiction recovery and self-discovery. We provide medically managed detox and insist on providing exemplary 24-hour clinical care. As well as our residential programme, guests received intermediate care and aftercare to support them in cementing the foundations of their ongoing recovery.

Stop. Start. Grow. Bloom

Our Stop Start Grow model is a refreshing approach to treatment and is what makes recovery at Delamere different. Our goal is always to give you the mindset and tools to grow beyond addiction and live life on your terms once you leave us.

Our belief

We believe that with the right help, anyone can find freedom from addiction. It is our experience that growing beyond addiction and negativity transforms lives and families beyond recognition. The Delamere Treatment Model has been crafted by a team who are passionate about outcomes and exemplary care, many of whom have vast personal and professional experience of addiction and recovery. You will have opportunities to talk through your problems both in a 1-1 setting and in group sessions giving you the space to be honest with yourself and those around you. We’re not for everyone, we’re for you.

“Rather than adhering to the conventional step-based approach to rehab, the emphasis at Delamere is on identifying the underlying factors that drive our behaviour. Only by coming to recognise their back stories can participants begin to re-write their personal script and shape their futures.”
