Alcohol Detox – Inpatient
Alcohol Detox – Inpatient – An Alcohol detox or the withdrawal of alcohol from the body can be unpleasant if not handle correctly with the right medication, and the correct dosage for the client’s needs. An alcohol detox should only be done under medical supervision either at an alcohol detox unit or at home. Always make sure the alcohol detox unit you are attending is CQC registered.
Alcohol Detox – Inpatient – The level of care depending on your needs is also very important. Call our team on Tel: 0845 3881 543 to discuss the level of care you are going to need to make your detox as safe and comfortable as possible and what is going to be the most beneficial for you.
Alcohol Detox – Inpatient – Once a tailored medical detox has been completed, whether at home or in a detox unit, generally done by using a drug called Librium (Chlordiazepoxide), then the process of taking control of alcohol can begin. This is done using one of our alcohol rehabilitation programs. In some cases whereas Librium cannot be administered due to medical reasons, i.e. the client may have liver failure, then other medicines will be used in place of Librium. Detox units also use other medicines such as Carbamazepine (Tegretol) to safeguard against seizures and fits, plus Pabrinex I.M which is a high potency vitamins medicine which is used on a daily basis for 5 days. Following that the detox unit will administer Thiamine and Vitamin B for the remained of the detox, and for 2 weeks after the detox in completed. This will all be fully explained to the client before any medicines are administered. We have a number of programmes available, and will have one to suit you and your needs. This is now what is called the recovery stage of your treatment. This may be done at home using telephone counselling and weekly visits or through one of our rehabilitation centres based in the UK.
Alcohol Detox – Inpatient – Once you have been admitted to treatment in a detox unit, you will be assessed on arrival and again before any medication is issued, so as to determine the amount needed. This is all based on the individual’s withdrawal symptoms. Every client is different, and most detox units works on what is called the “Clinical Institute Withdrawal Assessment of Alcohol Scale” which in short is known as the CIWA-Ar. How this works is, the medication allowance takes into account the clients height, weight, and the amount of alcohol the individual is using.
Female Alcohol Detox
Alcohol Detox – Inpatient – If a female client is known to be pregnant before entering an alcohol detox unit, then the detox unit will need a letter from the clients Consultant Obstetrician stating it is safe to detox the client. This will need to be done before any medicines can be given. All females will be pregnancy tested before any medication can be administered. This normal throughout all rehabilitation centres, and detox units for obvious reasons. Most detox units also offer massage and acupuncture as a form of relaxation to help the client through their detox.
