Our state of the art, first class private drug rehab in Cheshire is purpose built to deliver outstanding drug addiction treatment.
At Delamere rehab you can expect nothing but the best in terms of professional medical care combined with the latest in evidence based drug addiction treatments.
Our multidisciplinary team consisting of qualified doctors, nurses, counsellors, therapists and holistic practitioners are all here for one reason – to help you attain and maintain recovery from drug abuse and addiction.
Many of our team who work for us at Delamere have overcome addiction themselves. This gives us a unique insight and understanding into the challenges every addict faces when trying to stay clean outside of the treatment environment.
Every treatment we deliver is designed to embed coping strategies and techniques that will serve long term recovery from drug addiction.
At Delamere we truly comprehend that every patient is unique, as such, everyone experiences different issues that relate to their addiction. We take into account everything when designing a bespoke drug rehabilitation programme.
Our Delamere rehab team are passionate about helping addicts to recover. We want our patients to succeed in breaking the destructive cycle of addiction and becoming the best version of themselves possible.
If you or someone you care for is struggling with a drug abuse problem, whether it be an illicit drug such as cocaine, heroin or cannabis, or a legal prescription drug such as opiates or benzodiazepines, we at Delamere rehab Cheshire can help.
It only takes one call to start the recovery process.
Drug addiction is a chronic and progressive disorder of the brain, characterised by a compulsion to take drugs despite negative consequences and relapse. Without the correct professional medical and therapeutic treatment many sadly die as a result 1
Repeated abuse of drugs causes long lasting changes to the brain, to the point that even once the substances are safely removed through a medical drug detox, the brain remains in the same chemically damaged and altered state 1
Drug addiction results from repeated drug abuse. In addiction the brain’s pleasure/reward centre becomes damaged; causing new pathways to form which prioritise drugs above basic human needs. Consequently the individual suffers physically, mentally, emotionally, socially and spiritually 1
Family members, friends and even work colleagues (basically anyone who is close to an addict) will also suffer as a direct result of an addict’s dysfunctional behaviours and the immense fear that addiction creates.
Not all drug addicts are homeless, rootless and jobless; many still have families and continue to work. Functioning drug addicts can be the hardest to treat as whilst they feel they have not lost anything of great value, they are unable to acknowledge the damage their addiction is causing those closest to them.
Whilst addiction is an incurable brain disorder, the good news is that it can be successfully arrested through a medical drug detox . Recovery from drug abuse and drug addiction can then be maintained by undertaking a drug rehabilitation programme and a long term aftercare plan.
We at Delamere rehab Cheshire specialise in the treatment of all manner of addictions, including drug addiction. No matter how hopeless the situation may seem, we are able to use our expertise, knowledge and experience to successfully treat the underlying causes of addiction and set our patients firmly on the path of recovery.
If you relate to the following physical signs and symptoms of drug addiction in yourself or someone else, please ask for professional help without delay.
Physical signs and symptoms will vary depending on the drug being used. Stimulant drugs such as amphetamine and cocaine speed up the body and brain, whilst depressant drugs including opiates, sleeping tablets and cannabis have the opposite effect.
Drug addiction is characterised by destructive and harmful behaviours. These behaviours not only affect the addicted person, but also family and loved ones.
Drug addicts can appear extremely selfish in their behaviours. This is because the individual addicted can only think about drugs. A drug addict is compelled to abuse drugs no matter the risk to themselves and those around them. This is the tragic reality of how drug addiction hijacks the brain.
In order that a drug addicted person can get well, they must first detox from the drugs then address the reasons why they used drugs in the first place. Behavioral therapy is a vital part of drug rehabilitation.
At Delamere rehab we are very understanding and compassionate of the mental, emotional and physical pain you will have endured to reach the point where you say ‘enough is enough!’ and place your life in our hands.
Our drug rehab Cheshire is very unique, not just in terms of the innovative treatments that we deliver, but also in the lengths that we go to in order to support your ongoing recovery back in the community.
Delamere is not just a rehab, we provide a healing retreat for personal growth, connection and transformation. Our multidisciplinary team of dedicated professionals work day and night, ensuring you receive the highest levels of treatment and care at all times.

Here at Delamere we offer a number of residential drug rehabilitation programmes which can be tailored to suit your individual needs.
We have found that there is no one size fits all solution to addiction recovery; everyone has different needs and responds to treatment at different rates.
Our team at Delamere rehab Cheshire continually monitor and review our patients. We apply close professional observation of current lifestyle, response to treatment and future goals.
We make changes to treatment plans wherever necessary, in order that our patients respond to the best of their ability throughout the entire treatment process.
On admission to Delamere you will be comprehensively assessed by our consultant psychiatrist. Where a drug dependence is identified a full medical detox will be prescribed to help you withdraw from drugs comfortably and safely. You will receive 24/7 nursing care throughout the detox process.
After dealing with the physical aspects of drug addiction through a medical drug detox, we then start to work with you in depth to establish the issues and contributing factors underpinning your addiction.
Being a detox and therapy retreat, our aim is to help you break the cycle of active addiction and bring about a profound personal transformation.
In simple terms, we believe it is about helping you to stop drug abuse, teaching you how to stay stopped, then showing you how to recreate a drug free life.
