Tailored Valium detox at Delamere

Valium, also known as diazepine, is the most commonly prescribed type of benzodiazepine and is highly addictive. Where Valium use, whether prescribed or recreational, has led to an addiction and dependence, Valium rehab provides a life-changing opportunity to grow beyond addiction, one that starts with a Valium detox. Many other Valium detox centres in the UK take a rigid approach to medical detox. However, at Delamere, this could not be further from the truth. We understand that everyone has a different experience with addiction and recovery which is why we take a person-centred approach that is tailored to each of our guests. Detoxing from Valium at Delamere takes place under the supervision and care of our medical team, comprising doctors and 24-hour on-site nurses.

Upon arrival at our private rehab clinic, all guests are given a physical and psychological assessment, at which time our doctors will decide on the best course of medication to ensure a safe detox from Valium. These approved medicines will also work to mitigate or even eradicate unpleasant side effects of the detoxification process. The thought of Valium can be entirely overwhelming for many and even a barrier to seeking treatment, but we don’t think this should be the case. Our innovative approach aims to take the fear away from withdrawal and rather have it be a relaxing time and new beginning.

What’s involved in an alcohol or drug detox?

“Prior to rehab at Delamere, I attempted numerous times to try and reduce the Valium I took, but 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.” – Delamere Guest

The benefits of an inpatient Valium detox

Benzodiazepine withdrawal is notoriously hard on the body and the mind. Those who have developed a valium addiction will experience benzodiazepine withdrawal symptoms when they try to reduce or stop. The longer the duration of the valium dependence and the higher the dosage, the more severe and dangerous withdrawal symptoms can be. Whilst detoxing from Valium at home can be possible, the dangers of this cannot be understated. At Delamere, we see guests who have attempted an unassisted home detox from Valium that resulted in relapse when withdrawal symptoms became unbearable.

Not only can going ‘cold turkey’ be unsuccessful but it can also lead to severe and life-changing medical consequences. For these reasons alone, the benefits of Valium detox centres, like ours here in rural Cheshire, are profound and life-saving. During your stay at Delamere, your assisted Valium detox will be monitored by our 24-hour on-site nursing team who are on hand to keep you safe and as comfortable as possible.

‘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 Valium detox

How long does Valium detox take?

Valium detoxes can be a lengthy process if the individual has been taking substantial amounts of Valium for a long period of time. Trying to stop Valium too quickly can be very dangerous and bring about life-threatening symptoms such as psychosis and seizures; it can also bring about the onset of PAWS (post-acute withdrawal syndrome). It is important that if you are addicted to Valium you seek the correct medical help to support your detox.

Is Valium detox safe?

Undergoing a medical detox for Valium dependence is clinically recognised as the safest way to stop Valium. It also vastly reduces the chances of developing PAWS). At Delamere, you will receive round-the-clock medical care to maximise your safety and comfort.
