Detoxification when applied to addiction is defined as the natural process that occurs in the body as it attempts to rid the system of waste products and toxins from excessive, long-term alcohol consumption or drug use.
In a treatment setting, detox is usually accompanied by medication, and followed by therapy. The aim of detoxification is to rid the body of the addictive substance while managing withdrawal symptoms safely.
Our team will do a comprehensive review of alcohol, drug, medical and psychiatric history prior to advising on this or any other treatment. It is important to recognize that medical detoxification by itself does not constitute complete treatment for addiction, but only a first step.
Ideally, medical detoxification should enhance your motivation and readiness to begin the recovery process in earnest Detox is only of value when combined with an on-going treatment program.
You can arrange this separately if you wish or we can add our Home Treatment Program.
