Food addiction help at Delamere

Eating disorders are often referred to as being psycho-physical, meaning treatment must look at both the mind and body together. That’s why at Delamere, we offer a holistic approach to eating disorder treatment. In order to create a programme that meets your specific needs, our on-site medical team will first do a complete physical assessment to identify any serious risks or dangers.

This enables us to understand exactly what is needed from a physical standpoint. Phase 2 of our intensive four-phase eating disorder treatment programme looks at the underlying factors that drive the behaviour, offering activities such as somatic healing, both 1-1 and group therapy sessions, and creative arts as part of our programmes.

What makes Delamere different?

“I didn’t have trouble with alcohol or drugs but the therapist, mentors and staff helped me greatly in my depressed state. I can honestly say I became a better, happier person.” – Michael Theodorou, Former Delamere guest

When to seek eating disorder treatment

Each eating disorder has its own set of drivers, complications, and health risks. Thankfully, with the right help and support, eating disorders are treatable and you can build a healthier relationship with food.

People typically come into a rehab centre when their relationship with food has become dangerous to their health both physically and mentally. Suffering from an eating disorder can also quickly and easily lead to alcohol addiction or drug addiction. Often when people uncontrollably eat or purge after eating, they feel guilt and shame and want to hide away from the world. This can lead them to self-medicate to mask these feelings, creating a whole new set of problems to deal with. Similarly, eating disorders are normally accompanied by a number of mental health complications too. 

It’s for this reason that our approach at Delamere is person-centric, treating the whole person rather than just the symptoms they present with.

All eating disorders have psychological issues at their root driving behavioural complications and creating all kinds of physical health problems. There are many different types of eating disorders but the three most common are:

  • Anorexia nervosa.
  • Bulimia nervosa.
  • Binge eating disorder.

Whilst the signs and signs and symptoms of a food addiction or eating disorder are varied, there are some common clues including:

  • Eating very infrequently/not at all or eating much more than intended.
  • Looking pale, thin, or ill.
  • Feeling guilty or shameful after eating or purging.
  • Regularly using food as a coping mechanism.
  • Hiding eating from others.
  • High harm avoidance tendencies.
  • Repeatedly failing at increasing/limiting your eating.

The Delamere approach to food addiction rehab

An inpatient stay at Delamere is a deliberately intensive 4-phase food addiction rehab programme, one which we have crafted over time and has helped many participants recover. Our emphasis is on holistic care to treat addiction and associated issues. This means that we treat the whole person rather than just the symptoms they present with. We believe that successful treatment runs far deeper than simply stopping the addictive substance or behaviour.

Our approach at Delamere comprises 4 core phases: Stop, Start, Grow, & Bloom. Everything we offer at Delamere aims at effective and lasting outcomes in addiction treatment:

  • Stop Icon
    Stage 1: Stop

    This phase addresses any physical aspects of your addiction. Our medical team is on hand 24/7.

  • Start Icon
    Stage 2: Start

    During ‘Start’ we help identify the psychological underpinnings of your dependency as you participate in a variety of addiction treatment therapies.

  • Grow Icon
    Stage 3: Grow

    Our ‘Grow’ phase is the process of integrating the Delamere learning experience into life after treatment.

  • Bloom Icon (Use)
    Stage 4: Bloom

    Our ‘Bloom’ phase offers intensive support on a weekly basis for the first three months of recovery once guests return home.
