Combining your courage and our knowledge

No two drug addiction problems are alike. So a programme of treatment that might suit one person may not be appropriate for another. That’s why, whatever your personal struggle, Delamere’s individually customised approach to treatment is most likely to produce effective results. With your courage in confronting the problem, and our expertise in dealing with the issues, an effective answer can be found.

If you or someone you are close to is struggling with drugs, whether they be illegal drugs such as heroin, cocaine or cannabis or legal prescription medications, Delamere can help. It calls for courage, honesty and humility to seek help, after which the first step is to understand what’s really happening in order that the sufferer can make progress with the right support and treatment. Where addiction is concerned, intensive professional help is so often the best way forward.

What is drug abuse and drug addiction?

Drug addiction is a chronic neurobiological disease that without treatment can cause long-lasting changes within the brain. Those struggling to cope with this addiction often feel that they can no longer function normally, as the effect of the drugs increasingly begins to impact on work, relationships and personal health. The addiction often spirals into a progressive condition where the individual loses the ability to control or moderate the amount they are using or the frequency with which they use them.

The positive news is that addiction can be treated and there is plenty of professional help available. At Delamere we offer dedicated drug detox and rehab programmes which help addicts break the cycle of drug abuse and find freedom from addiction. However hopeless the case may appear to be, we can achieve transformations that are simply inspiring.

If some of this paints a familiar picture to you, it might be that you have experienced or observed some of the following physical and behavioural signs and symptoms of drug abuse.


Physical signs & symptoms of drug addiction

  • Craving, withdrawal
  • Blood shot or ‘glazed’ eyes
  • Constricted or dilated pupils
  • Fluctuation in weight
  • Insomnia or sleeping too much

Signs and symptoms will vary depending on the substance being used.

Behavioural signs & symptoms of drug addiction

If you or a loved one are struggling with drugs, you may observe a change in personality and some or all of the following behavioural traits:

  • Feeling that you have to use drugs regularly
  • Having to use more drugs to get the same effect (acquiring a tolerance)
  • Continuing to use drugs despite the harm they are causing in your life and the lives of those around you
  • Depression, anxiety, paranoia
  • Irritability or aggression
  • A shift in habits or friendship circle
  • Problems with finances, work, home, police
  • Debilitating, and painful withdrawal symptoms that develop within a few hours of an attempt to stop using a particular drug

Drug addiction treatment at Delamere

Delamere offers a number of residential drug rehabilitation programmes which can be tailored to suit individual needs. No off-the-shelf solutions, just a positive way forward based on close professional observation of your current lifestyle and future goals. If you need help with stopping drug addiction initially our ‘Cleanse’ detoxification programme is the place to start. After dealing with the physical aspects of the addiction we start to work with you in depth to establish the underlying causes of the problem.

Being a detox and therapy retreat, our aim is to help you break the cycle of addiction and bring about a profound personal transformation. In simple terms, we believe it’s about stopping and then learning how to stay stopped.
