Detox at Home
Rapid access to a safe, discreet and comfortable detox
The traditional recovery route for an individual with an alcohol addiction is hospital based detox centre admission for a 28 day stay. This is then followed up with outpatient treatment.
Our detox at home service offers specialist support to withdraw from alcohol addiction in the comfort and security of the home environment. This is undertaken over a one week period with the care of an appropriately trained addiction specialist.
Why detox at home matters
There are several advantages of detox in a home setting:
- The treatment and support can be delivered within one week
- The member can recover at home and continue with family life
- Privacy and professional reputation is maintained
- Members benefit from individual, professional care day and night
Rapid access through self-referral
To help support our members and reduce the initial wait, we now offer the choice to bypass the GP and self-refer to detox at home. The member simply needs to call us to discuss their alcohol addiction and their symptoms. If appropriate, they'll be transferred to our preferred provider Archangel UK for a telephone assessment and to arrange an escorted GP appointment. The prescription is administered by a nurse who will stay with the member day and night for around one week. To find out more about the member journey please download our detox at home infographic.
