Frequently asked questions

Our alcohol rehab programmes are healthcare plans specially designed to help you stop drinking alcohol safely and remain sober.

Residential alcohol rehab programmes at Delamere in Cheshire last around 28 days but this can be longer depending on the severity of your alcohol addiction. We don’t have a one size fits all approach to alcohol rehab. Each plan is designed specifically to meet your needs and help you to get the most out of it.

Delamere uses several different types of psychotherapy, also known as talking therapy, to treat alcohol addiction. One of our preferred methods is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), which helps you to deal with your thoughts and how they affect your behaviour. Other therapies we offer include motivational interviewing, psychodynamic therapy and dialectical behaviour therapy, amongst others.

The aim of our alcohol rehab programmes is to help you return to life sober. During your residential stay at Delamere wellness retreat you will have learnt the tools to maintain abstinence and will keep in regular contact with your personal care team and your peers for ongoing support.

Alcohol rehab programmes at Delamere include a medically assisted alcohol detox which will reduce your physical cravings for alcohol. You will be supported 24/7 by an expert healthcare team who can adjust medication as required.

A good support network is an important part of your recovery. Delamere actively encourages visits from friends and family members. We have an abundance of relaxing spaces for you to connect with your loved ones.

You are not legally obliged to tell your employer about any medical condition. However, being open and honest could help with support when you return to work. Most employers will recognise the fact you’re seeking help as a positive step. We can help you to manage any problems from the outset.

If you have concern for a loved one, we can help stage a family intervention to encourage them to enter treatment and even arrange to collect them. Ultimately, this must be their choice and they need to be fully committed to the programme.

Prices in an executive room at Delamere start from £18,000 for a 28-day stay. Rates include comprehensive private medical care, an intensive therapy programme, 5-star home-cooked meals and luxury accommodation in well-equipped, ensuite rooms.
