Why go to a depression rehab centre?

A depression rehab centre such as Delamere offers people a chance to learn how to recover from depression and develop coping strategies in a tranquil environment where they can focus on themselves, and themselves alone, 100%. It also encourages them to open up and talk about their feelings, sharing their thoughts, worries, and experiences with other people who are also suffering from depression. Similarly, depression and addiction often go hand in hand.


A person may try to self-medicate to help get through the day and so substance abuse or alcohol and depression very quickly become inextricably linked. Delamere is an addiction treatment and behavioural health clinic with clinical resource and expertise that exceeds what is often found at more traditional rehab clinics for depression, and as such we are able to manage dual-diagnosis, treating a guest’s depression or any other mental health disorder alongside addiction.

The Delamere approach to rehab treatment for depression

An inpatient stay at Delamere is a deliberately intensive 4-phase residential rehab treatment for depression, one which we have crafted over time and has helped many participants recover. Our emphasis is on holistic therapy, treating the whole person rather than just the symptoms they present with. 

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.

  • 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.

Encouraging a loved one to go to rehab for depression

Depression is a debilitating illness that affects not only the sufferer but also those around them. It can be painful and distressing to watch a loved one or someone you care for lose themselves to depression. Those in a depressive state may find themselves too entrenched in the illness to accept help. That’s where we can help. At Delamere, we offer both family support services and intervention services to help support you and your loved one in getting the treatment and support they need in order to experience a lasting recovery.

If you are considering organising an intervention for someone you care for or need support on how to get a loved one to enter rehab treatment for depression, contact Delamere today.

Frequently asked questions about rehab for depression

What is Delamere rehab clinic for depression like?

Delamere’s purpose-built residential rehab provides everything you need in terms of treatment within the same state-of-the-art facility. Delamere was built to bring a new kind of healing experience to the world of addiction treatment. Our guests can benefit from both luxury accommodation and cutting-edge rehab treatment for depression that truly works. We offer a caring, compassionate environment that is secluded, set in the beautiful countryside of Cheshire.

Will I need to take medication during my rehab treatment for depression?

In order to successfully recover from depression and maintain recovery, medication as a support alongside your rehab treatment for depression may be necessary. As the first step in your rehab programme, our experienced team of medical professionals and psychotherapists will conduct a full medical and mental health assessment. Following this, you may be prescribed a tailored medication programme to help support you in overcoming depression. All medications will be issued at regular intervals by our 24-hour on-site nursing team who will continue to check on your physical and mental wellbeing throughout your entire stay.

At Delamere however, we do not rely solely on medication as treatment. It is simply a supporting aid in your recovery journey. We provide personalised and holistic care that addresses not only the physical effects of depression and change in brain chemistry but also whatever it might be that is underpinning your depression through a blend of traditional psychotherapies and holistic healing practices.
