When to seek pregabalin addiction treatment

People who regularly take prescription drugs to treat a genuine medical condition might develop a pregabalin addiction without even realising it. Over time, the body adapts to functioning with pregabalin and the user may begin to crave more to achieve the same desired effect. Pregabalin addiction can make people become secretive about their actions and lie about the amount they take. 

If you believe that you or a loved one are struggling with a pregabalin addiction, it is time to seek pregabalin addiction from a specialist rehab clinic like Delamere.

If you are concerned about your own or someone else’s relationship with pregabalin, you may observe some of the following signs and symptoms of pregabalin addiction:

  • Taking higher doses than prescribed.
  • ‘Doctor shopping’ for pregabalin.
  • Mood and personality changes.
  • Poor sleeping and eating patterns.
  • Being forgetful or unable to concentrate.
  • Anxiety and depression.
  • Lethargy and heart palpitations.

“Delamere provides a very soothing place in which people can recover. We’re proud to have a 24-hour medical team on site which means we provide a very tailored, medically managed detox regime. Alcohol detox is something we very much specialise in and since we opened in March 2020, we’ve helped nearly 1,000 people recover.”

Psychiatrist at Delamere

The Delamere approach to pregabalin addiction treatment

An inpatient stay at Delamere is a deliberately intensive 4-phase pregabalin 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.

How to encourage a loved one to get pregabalin addiction treatment

Frequently asked questions about pregabalin addiction

Can I receive co-occurring treatment at Delamere?

Delamere has successfully treated several guests who have brought pregabalin addiction as either a primary or a secondary challenge.

Mixing pregabalin with other substances, including alcohol, is dangerous as it increases the risk of overdose and death. This is because pregabalin and alcohol both work by slowing down the central nervous system, intensifying sedation, making breathing more laboured and slowing the heart rate.

What does pregabalin addiction treatment look like?

Our holistic therapists use a range of psychotherapies, including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), to understand what is driving your addiction and put strategies in place to help avoid a relapse. We offer a wide range of evidence-based pregabalin treatment options, from equine therapy to meditation, and will find what works best for you.

At Delamere, we use a 4-phase approach which treats every aspect of your pregabalin addiction holistically. Helping to overcome physical cravings, learn new ways to heal emotionally and ultimately enjoy life without a reliance on prescription drugs.
