Help for Benzodiazepine Addiction at Delamere

Also known as ‘benzos’, benzodiazepines are psychoactive drugs that are frequently prescribed to treat anxiety, panic disorders, insomnia, and seizures. They are classed as ‘depressants’, which means they work by slowing down the central nervous system, having a calming and sedative effect on the user.

At Delamere, our team of experts has extensive experience treating benzodiazepine addiction.

We help guests recover using evidence-based techniques at our clinic in Cheshire. We can support our guests with a medically supervised benzodiazepine detox to reduce the physical and psychological cravings for benzodiazepines alongside 1-1 counselling, Recovery Mentoring sessions, and group therapy work.

“Delamere focuses on equipping you with the tools to love sobriety and understand what led to the addiction in the first place which really helped me grow.” – Former Delamere guest

When to seek benzodiazepines addiction treatment

People typically seek addiction help within a benzodiazepine rehab when they have become both physically and psychologically dependent on the drug. Signs of benzodiazepine addiction tend not to be as obvious as an alcohol or drug addiction however recognising them in yourself or someone you care for can lead to getting help with life-saving treatment.

Some common signs of a benzodiazepine addiction include:

  • Slurred speech.
  • Drowsiness and dizziness.
  • Loss of appetite.
  • Lack of coordination.
  • Slow reflexes.
  • Confusion.

Benzodiazepine rehab at Delamere offers anyone with an unhealthy or dependent relationship with the substance a chance at long-term recovery.

“My own journey through addiction was the inspiration for Delamere. We provide exemplary care in first-class facilities, focusing on creating lasting outcomes for our guests and their families. Helping them not just overcome their addiction, but grow beyond it.”

Martin Preston
Founder & CEO at Delamere

The Delamere approach to benzodiazepine addiction treatment

An inpatient stay at Delamere is a deliberately intensive 4-phase benzodiazepine addiction treatment, 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 to ensure a safe and effective withdrawal.

  • 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.

Frequently asked questions about benzodiazepine addiction

What are some of the effects of benzodiazepine addiction?

Long-term, high-dose use of benzodiazepines has been associated with a wide range of negative health consequences including severe mental health disorders which make it difficult for abusers to avoid relapse. Cognitive decline, dementia, and falls are also common in older people.

What is the best treatment for benzodiazepine addiction?

There are different approaches to treating benzodiazepine addiction depending on the severity of abuse, but both require the person to want help. Initial stabilisation through a medically supervised detox, followed by maintenance therapy and supportive rehab aftercare services is a proven way to treat benzodiazepine addiction and offers long-term results.
