Tailored morphine detox at Delamere

Delamere stands apart from most other UK morphine detox centres as we provide our guests with a completely tailored morphine detox treatment. We understand that everyone reacts differently to morphine withdrawal, which is why we do not approach morphine detox with a one-size-fits-all approach. Our team of doctors and 24-hour on-site nurses provide each of our guests with a medical assessment upon arrival, during which they can decide on the right course of medication to ease the withdrawal process.  At Delamere private rehab, you will feel safe from judgement of any kind.  We will help to nurse you back to full health while instilling essential relapse techniques and healing any underlying issues.

We have considerable experience in treating patients who suffer from morphine addiction. We can help you break the addictive cycle and undergo a profound personal transformation that allows you to live a life beyond addiction. Our tailored medical detox combined with our 24/7 nursing staff allows us to be proactive in combating prescription drug withdrawal symptoms to make morphine detox as comfortable as possible. Our medical team can administer medications to alleviate or even eradicate withdrawal symptoms. This round-the-clock care also makes Delamere a very safe place to carry out a morphine detox treatment.

A day at Delamere

I really quite quickly settled in, the staff were amazing, and I just felt safe and that I could just kind of put a stop to my life and start working out what I really wanted going forward” – Simon, Former Delamere Guest

The benefits of an inpatient morphine detox centre

Depending on the severity of the addiction, it is likely that someone requiring morphine rehab will be suffering from a physical dependency. Where this is the case, the safest way to complete a morphine detox is with medical assistance. Supplementing the body with an approved medication supports it during the withdrawal process to keep those going through a detox from morphine as safe and comfortable as possible.

Whilst at home morphine withdrawal can be possible, for the aforementioned reason it can be dangerous. Going ‘cold turkey’ and not supporting the body physically can have severe consequences including life-changing medical implications and even the loss of life.


“At Delamere, we provide a caring, compassionate, soothing environment to help people change the directions of their lives.”

Dr Catherine Carney
Psychiatrist 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:

  • 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 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.

Frequently asked questions about morphine detox

What are the side effects of a morphine detox?

As with any prescription drug detox, there are numerous side effects, both physical and psychological. These can include:

  • Vomiting and nausea.
  • Sweating and chills.
  • Heart palpitations.
  • Anxiety and depression.
  • Muscle aches.

At Delamere, we support our guests through a medically assisted morphine detox to eliminate as many symptoms as possible.

Is a detox from morphine dangerous?

There are two main dangers with a morphine detox, the first being possible medical consequences if the body is unsupported and unable to cope without the substance. Secondly, detoxing from morphine outside of a supportive environment is more likely to result in a relapse if cravings are too overwhelming.
