Tailored benzodiazepine detox at Delamere

Whilst detoxing at home is possible, it is much safer to do so with the support of medical professionals. During your benzodiazepine detox at Delamere, you will stay in luxury accommodation in the heart of the tranquil Cheshire countryside, the ideal place to stop and get the support you need. Unlike other benzodiazepine detox centres, Delamere provides guests with a tailored, medically assisted detox from benzodiazepine to make this time as comfortable as possible. We know from first-hand experience just how daunting detox can be and how much courage it takes to take that step.

This is why our guests are assessed by our team of medical professionals to provide approved medications to make benzodiazepine detox as comfortable as possible. Guests and their families often take comfort in knowing that we have a team of 24-hour on-site nurses who can react and administer medications to ease or eradicate withdrawal symptoms. Our private rural environment is the perfect safe space to complete a medical detox from benzodiazepines, away from the distractions and triggers of everyday life.

The benefits of an inpatient benzodiazepine detox

Detoxing from benzodiazepines at home can be possible, but it can also incur significant dangers if the body has become reliant. Where the severity of the benzodiazepine addiction has caused the body to depend on the substance, it will have to be replaced with an approved medication to ensure a safe detox. At Delamere, this will happen under the supervision of our team of medical professionals who will provide 24-hour round-the-clock care. If benzodiazepine detox is conducted at home and you or your loved one decide to go ‘cold turkey’, the consequences can be extreme.

Not providing the body with an approved replacement medication, in the most severe cases, can result in death. It is important to note that the symptoms of benzodiazepine withdrawal can be very similar to those that caused someone to get prescribed the drugs in the first place, making relapse likely outside of a supportive, safe environment. Before starting an unassisted detox from benzodiazepines at home, please consult a medical professional.

“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.”

Founder & CEO at Delamere

‘Stop’ lays the foundations for the following stages of our rehab programme. Once you have completed your detox, staying stopped and future-proofing your abstinence is the next step. Everything we offer at Delamere aims at effective and lasting outcomes in addiction treatment:

  • 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)

How to encourage a loved one to go to rehab

If you are looking to help a family member, work colleague, or loved one, admit themselves to an addiction rehabilitation centre, we’re here to help. It may be that the person in question is in denial about the extent of their problem, possibly even refusing to acknowledge that there’s a problem – and resisting professional help. At Delamere, we provide family support services and help your loved one confront addiction and denial.

Should it be necessary, we also offer intervention services whereby we take the time to understand what is happening and help prepare and rehearse a formal intervention that will culminate in your loved one entering treatment with us. If you are considering organising an intervention for your loved one, friend, or colleague, contact Delamere today.
