Valium addiction help at Delamere

The potential for abuse and dependence of Valium is substantial and should only be used under the strict supervision and guidance of a medical practitioner. Whether you have found this page because you or a loved one are struggling with Valium addiction, at Delamere, we believe that anyone can grow from prescription drug addiction with the right tools and support.

Our rural Cheshire location is the perfect place to press the pause button on the distractions of day-to-day life, giving you the mental space to focus on getting better. Our 4-phase diazepam addiction treatment model has been crafted with the help of industry leaders to provide profound results in a short period of time. 

Our intensive approach to addiction treatment considers not just the addiction, but what underpins it too. It is our belief that a holistic approach can result in thorough healing and lasting change.

United by the shared goal of seeing our guests succeed, we have a fantastic team of compassionate, dedicated professionals comprising doctors, 24-hour on-site nurses, therapists, recovery mentors, and support staff, some of whom have personal experiences of addiction and recovery and can provide total understanding and compassion to our guests as well an inspiration that things can get better.

What makes Delamere different?

“Prior to rehab at Delamere, I attempted numerous times to try and reduce the Valium I took, each time would result in debilitating and terrifying panic attacks. I am so grateful I contacted Delamere and underwent treatment with them. My life has changed immeasurably, I never thought I would be free of Valium but thanks to them I now am.” – Jimmy, Former Delamere Guest

When to seek Valium addiction treatment

Valium can cause drug tolerance and dependence quickly, within just 7 to 14 days of continuous use. This is why it is generally only medically recommended for short-term treatment. Over the last 5 years, there has been widespread concern over the number of Valium and other addictive prescription drug dependencies in the UK. 

If you spot signs and symptoms of Valium abuse and addiction in someone you know, it is important to address the problem and encourage them to seek help. Valium rehab at Delamere can provide you or a loved one with a safe place to complete a supported Valium detox, giving you the time and space to heal from past traumas and grow from your addiction.

If you are concerned about your own or a loved one’s relationship with diazepam, you may observe some of the following signs and symptoms:

  • Numerous prescriptions from different doctors.
  • Slow to respond and drowsy.
  • Yellow or grey pallor to the skin.
  • Sleeping far more than usual.
  • Signs of mixing diazepam with alcohol or other drugs.
  • Disinterest in family time, social events, and things they used to enjoy.
  • Unreliability and taking time off work.
  • Generally appearing emotionally unavailable.
  • Changes in appetite and appearance.

The Delamere approach to Valium addiction

An inpatient stay at Delamere is a deliberately intensive 4-phase valium addiction treatment programme, 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 Valium addiction treatment

When someone you love is addicted to Valium and is either in denial of their problem or unprepared to accept help, then our intervention services could well be the solution you are looking for. Interventions are usually considered as a last resort, and in this sense, they are often life-saving.

Being close to someone who suffers from a diazepam addiction can be incredibly frightening. It is hard to stand by and do nothing, yet the feelings of helplessness are overpowering, but our family support services are here to help.

Thankfully there is help available in the form of a professional intervention, delivered by our own highly skilled and experienced interventionist. Our interventionist will work closely with the family in order to gather as much information as possible about the person who needs the help. Delamere’s interventions are intricately planned and highly successful.

Frequently asked questions about diazepam addiction

Do interventions for diazepam addiction work?

Research has shown that those who enter rehab treatment off the back of a professional intervention tend to engage better than those who do not. The reason for this is that our interventionist will have already broken down any barriers that could potentially prevent the individual from giving 100 per cent focus.

Can I become addicted to prescribed Valium?

Addiction is addiction, regardless of the substance that is involved or the source. Many individuals who become addicted to prescribed drugs are in denial about their condition because they are taking legitimate prescriptions. Sadly these people will never recover unless they address their addiction disorder.

If you have an addiction to Valium and want your life back, the best treatment that is available would be through a private drug rehab specialising in benzodiazepine addiction such as ourselves.
