What is an alcohol home detox. Basically, it is the same as a detox you would have in a residential rehab centre. But done at home. We have a whole section on this website about this, so follow this link for details.
Who would have an alcohol home detox
We find clients who have very busy lives, either with family or work commitments, tend to find an alcohol home detox much more convenient for them. It means they can carry on with family or work things while having a detox. The first couple of days are difficult with family or work things, because their medication is at it highest. But after that the clients can do normal things while finishing off their detox. So what we suggest is they start they alcohol home detox on a Friday evening, so by Monday morning the client is able to work from home, plus they can also work in the day on Friday meaning they do not need any time off.
How much does it cost
When we started doing alcohol home detoxes over 10 years ago, we use to charge £1295. And the good news is, we are still charging £1295 10 years later. That is all you pay. They are no hidden charges, and no VAT to add, as this is medical.
How long does it take
Our detox programs normally last 10 to 14 days. In some cases if the client wants too fast track the detox,. We can do it in 5 to 7 days. How every long it takes, it is still the same price. We do not charge anymore for a longer detox period. All we are interested in is getting the client well.
When can I start an alcohol home detox
You can normally start your alcohol home detox the same day. If you ring late in the afternoon, then it will be the following day or whenever you wish to start. This is because the chemist will be closed to collect your prescription of medication. We will work with the client on starting times. What I would say through is. The sooner you start, the sooner you will be feeling much better.
An alcohol home detox, also known as at-home alcohol detoxification, is a process in which an individual attempts to stop or reduce their alcohol consumption and manage withdrawal symptoms without being admitted to a formal detoxification facility or under the supervision of medical professionals. It involves detoxing from alcohol in the comfort of one’s own home.
It’s important to note that alcohol withdrawal can be a potentially dangerous and even life-threatening process for some individuals, particularly those with a severe alcohol addiction or a history of complicated withdrawals. Medically supervised detoxification in a specialised facility or under the care of healthcare professionals is generally recommended for individuals with a significant alcohol dependency or those at risk of severe withdrawal symptoms.
However, for individuals with mild or moderate alcohol dependence, a home detox may be an option under certain circumstances, including:
Medical Assessment and Guidance: It is essential to consult with a healthcare professional, such as a doctor or addiction specialist, before attempting an at-home alcohol detox. They can assess your overall health, level of alcohol dependence, and provide guidance on whether a home detox is appropriate for your specific situation.
Support System: Having a strong support system in place is crucial during a home detox. This can include family members, friends, or support groups who can provide emotional support, help monitor your progress, and intervene if necessary.
Gradual Reduction: Rather than abruptly stopping alcohol use, a home detox often involves a gradual reduction of alcohol consumption. This approach, known as tapering, can help minimise withdrawal symptoms and risks. It’s important to follow a tapering plan provided by a healthcare professional.
Monitoring of Symptoms: It is crucial to closely monitor your withdrawal symptoms during a home detox. Mild withdrawal symptoms may include anxiety, tremors, sweating, nausea, and insomnia. However, if symptoms become severe or unmanageable, it may be necessary to seek immediate medical assistance.
Self-Care and Healthy Lifestyle: Engaging in self-care activities, maintaining a healthy diet, staying hydrated, and getting adequate rest can support the detoxification process and overall well-being during an at-home detox.
It’s important to emphasise that an alcohol home detox is not suitable for everyone, and attempting to detox without proper medical supervision can be risky, especially for individuals with a severe alcohol addiction. The severity of alcohol withdrawal symptoms can vary, and in some cases, medical intervention and monitoring are necessary to ensure safety and minimise complications. Consulting with a healthcare professional is highly recommended to determine the most appropriate detoxification approach for your specific circumstances.
Are they Free?
No, sadly this is not something you can do through the NHS, or your local community drug and alcohol team. It is very time consuming for the nurse involved in your detox has he will be calling you a minimum of 4 times a day etc.
