Northern Ireland Alcohol Home Detox

Northern Ireland Alcohol Home Detox. We are extremely happy to announce that we have now extended our alcohol home detox program to Northern Ireland. This will work in exactly the same way as our very successful alcohol home detox programs in England, Wales and Scotland. This is a safe, comfortable and affordable way of detoxing from alcohol. We have been doing these now for over 10 years. 

This is how it works. Firstly you will need someone with you during your detox period. They will become what is known as your “supervisor”. This can be a family member or a friend etc. They will be giving you medication under our detox nurses supervision. Don’t panic. It is only pills. So this is how it works.

Northern Ireland – Alcohol Home Detox – How it works

Our detox nurse will call the client to do an assessment over the phone, to make sure it is safe for you to do a home detox. Your safely is paramount all the way through this. We have a duty of care to look after you. The next stage will be a video consultation on computer with one of our detox nurses. This with be with the client and the supervisor to explain how everything will work. You will never been left in the dark of what is happening. 

Providing all that is ok, we will then send (via email) some medical paperwork to be signed via email. We then need to collect payment of treatment, and we are ready to go. This is normal professional practice.

Once this is all in hand we can then transfer, from our medical centre to your local chemist, the medication. The supervisor is the only person who can collect this medication. Not the client. Again for safety reasons. 

So now you have the medication, we are ready to start. Our detox nurse will call you a minimum of 4 times a day to tell the supervisor how much medication to give the client. The reason we do this is:

1/ safety

2/ To make sure the client does not go into withdrawal, and is safe and comfortable

This will continue for the duration of the detox. The nurses will slowly reduce the medication down, until the client is safely detoxed from alcohol. This normally takes 10 to 12 days, but we can make it longer or sooner if the client prefers. There are no extra charges for the length, or time it takes to detox the client. The £1295 is all you pay.

Alcohol addiction is a serious issue that affects many people across Northern Ireland. If you or someone you know is struggling with alcohol addiction, you may be considering a home detox. While a home detox can be an option for some people, it is important to approach the process with caution and seek medical guidance.

What is a home detox?

A home detox is a process of weaning off alcohol at home, rather than in a hospital or rehabilitation centre. It involves stopping drinking and managing withdrawal symptoms while under medical supervision. Home detox can be appealing to some people who want to detox in the comfort of their own home or who may not have the time or financial resources for inpatient care.

What are the risks of a home detox?

Detoxing from alcohol can be dangerous, especially without medical supervision. Withdrawal symptoms can range from mild to severe and can include tremors, anxiety, insomnia, hallucinations, seizures, and delirium tremens (DTs). DTs can be life-threatening and require immediate medical attention.

The risk of complications during a home detox is higher if you have a history of severe alcohol withdrawal, have a co-occurring medical condition, or are taking other medications. Without medical supervision, you may not have access to medications that can help manage withdrawal symptoms and reduce the risk of complications.

How can you safely do a home detox?

If you are considering a home detox, it is important to consult with a medical professional first. Your doctor can evaluate your medical history and determine if a home detox is a safe option for you. They may also be able to provide medications to help manage withdrawal symptoms and reduce the risk of complications.

During a home detox, it is important to have a support system in place. This may include family members, friends, or a support group. You should also have a plan in case of an emergency, such as having access to transportation to a hospital.

It is important to follow a strict schedule during the detox process and avoid alcohol completely. You may also want to consider behavioural therapy or counselling to help address underlying issues that may contribute to your addiction.

A home detox can be a helpful option for some people, but it is important to approach the process with caution and seek medical guidance. Detoxing from alcohol can be dangerous, and medical supervision is necessary to reduce the risk of complications. If you or someone you love is struggling with alcohol addiction, speak with a medical professional about the best treatment options for you.
