Alcohol Detox

Our alcohol treatment programme is primarily designed to help clients develop new ways of controlling their alcohol use or achieve total abstinence from alcohol and help you stay that way. Choosing our treatment programme will inevitably mean you will need an initial alcohol detoxification programme. This aims to eradicate the alcohol from your body with the support of a clinical prescribing regime to help you safely detox from alcohol and cope with the withdrawal effects that can be experienced while detoxing.

As part of this detox, you will be assessed and prescribed by our Doctor and then place under close observation for the first 24-72 hours whilst you commence your detoxification treatment. This will enable our team to closely observe how you respond to this treatment and ensure you remain comfortable and safe throughout the process. If you are deemed a ‘chronic alcoholic’ or very dependent on alcohol, it is likely that you may be at risk of serious withdrawal from it and our team of dedicated staff will monitor you closely for any signs of serious physical illnesses associated with withdrawal such as Delirium Tremens.

Once the first 24-48 hours are completed, our team will work with you to start to plan and build your rehabilitation programme which will focus on a range of therapies to help you start to deal with your addiction, understand why you drink, how it effects your life and what you want to achieve during your treatment programme with us.

We employ a range of psychiatrists, psychologists, experienced and qualified addiction staff and a range of other professional therapists that are on hand to help you through these issues. You will be allocated your own worker, who will help you design your Recovery Action Plan (RAP) and guide you every step of the way on your new journey to recovery.

How long will my treatment take?

The duration of alcohol addiction rehabilitation varies and the duration is typically dictated by the severity of the clients addiction. To achieve a safe and comfortable detoxification and begin to prepare yourself for the next steps, we would recommend a minimum of 10 days. We will not accept anyone for detox for less than 7 days due to the clinical risk presented with alcohol dependency and would always recommend that clients consider increasing their stay up to 28 days so that they can really benefit from our therapeutic rehabilitation service and address the range of issues that are associated with your alcohol us. This is proven to increase your chances of a full recovery from alcohol addiction and help you sustain that recovery once you leave our care.
