Tailored sleeping pill detox at Delamere

At our private rehab clinic in Cheshire, we take a person-centred approach to sleeping pill detox, offering a far more tailored service than can be expected with major UK rehab providers. When it comes to addiction and recovery, we do not subscribe to a one-size-fits-all idea, therefore ensuring that all our guests’ needs are met for a successful recovery. To maximise safety and comfort while detoxing from sleeping pills during your sleeping pill addiction rehab programme, we have a team of 24-hour on-site nurses.

We have found this to be of great comfort to our guests and their families as they can rest easy in the knowledge that they will be provided with exemplary, round-the-clock care. Our on-site nurses also allow us the ability to react to uncomfortable symptoms day or night to keep guests as comfortable as possible.

“As soon as I came in and was greeted by the staff, I was constantly being reassured by them that I’m in the right place and was here for the right reasons.” – Jimmy, Former Delamere guest

The benefits of an inpatient sleeping pill detox

Whilst it is possible to detox from sleeping pills at home, the dangers this can trigger cannot be understated. In cases of addiction and dependence, going ‘cold turkey’ or withdrawing without medical support can have the most severe medical consequences if the body is unable to cope without the substance. Additionally, many people who attempt a home detox from sleeping pills often find their

cravings so severe that they relapse and turn back to sleeping pill abuse. For the success and safety of our guests, we provide medically assisted detoxes, whereby the dependent sleeping pills are substituted with approved medications to ease the detoxification process. During this time guests are monitored by our 24-hour on-site nursing team for their safety and comfort.

“Delamere has ripped up the rehab rule book. We’re proud to have helped over 1,000 guests since we opened and we’re proving that anyone can recover with the right help.”

Mike Delaney
Clinical Director 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.
