If cocaine has become a problem in your life, or the life of someone you care about, you’ll be well aware that cocaine is a powerful and highly addictive substance that has a habit of quickly creeping up on people – insidiously. What often starts off as recreational cocaine use can easily turn into cocaine abuse and ultimately cocaine addiction. The physical and psychological ‘come down’ from cocaine, coupled with the intense high brought about by using the substance, often creates an extremely turbulent emotional state. In the long term, anxiety, panic attacks, paranoia and depression are not uncommon – and the unmanageability and consequences brought about by a cocaine problem can be horrific.
At Delamere we offer exemplary cocaine treatment in first- class purpose- built facilities. We have proven that anyone can recover from cocaine addiction with the right help. Our free assessment takes place over the phone and is an opportunity for you to talk about what’s happening and get a sense of how Delamere can help you and your family.
If you have tried and failed to stop using cocaine, you have hopefully conceded that professional help is now the way forward. You’ll want to know who we are and how our treatment works and that’s what these pages are about.
Delamere is a private clinic that specialises in treating addiction on a residential basis. It is our belief and experience that with the right support anyone can permanently break the cycle of cocaine addiction. Our advanced cocaine rehab programmes are supported by a full range of after care services, including family support, counselling and relapse prevention.
We emphasise holistic care, and insist on treating the whole person rather than just the ‘symptom’. As well as traditional one-to-one and group therapy we offer innovative treatments such as mood management and trauma therapy which help you future-proof your recovery. Our cocaine treatment programmes tend to last 4 – 6 weeks and you can read more about our approach and care ethos here.
It is an established fact that the most effective way to treat cocaine addiction is through intensive residential treatment (conventionally known as detox and rehab). Over the years, our team have helped hundreds of clients recover from cocaine addiction. Unlike conventional rehab programmes, we don’t believe in prescriptive or rules-based treatment planning. At Delamere we recognise that whist the symptoms of cocaine addiction are similar, the reasons why people struggle are unique. With this in mind you can expect a varied and immersive process that helps you uncover the reasons why cocaine became a problem in the first place as well as a set of unique and practical tools to help future proof your recovery. You can read more about our addiction treatments.
On one level, brain chemistry is responsible. Cocaine and crack cocaine increase the levels of a chemical called dopamine which gives a sense of euphoria and wellbeing. Regular users of cocaine become accustomed to increased dopamine levels – such that when they don’t use the drug they feel ‘lacking’ and depressed. Cravings and an incessant thought of cocaine often feature.
If you’ve come this far on this page, the chances are cocaine has become a major problem for you or someone you’re trying to help.
If you have answered yes to any of these questions, the likelihood is you have a problem. Please contact our admissions team and we’ll outline what a way forward looks like. And, by the way, we’re not here to judge. Our admissions team is made up of people who have been there.

Living alongside someone who has a cocaine problem is exhausting, painful and confusing. Despite the fact that the person you may be trying to help could be in denial, it’s important that you take some action. Doing nothing only exacerbates your feeling of hopelessness and does nothing to encourage the person you care about to seek help. At Delamere we offer intervention services for families and concerned others who are trying to help someone who is resisting treatment. We also offer free support and advice about how to speak with someone who has a cocaine problem. Feel free to contact us via our helpline and we’ll take some time to help you plan a way forward.
