The first step in your treatment is to assess your difficulties, and a thorough breakdown of what needs to be done about them. Once this is established, we will prescribe a medication regime if needed, and you will be checked over to make certain you are fit enough to undertake an alcohol home detox. The medication prescribed will be for between 5 and 7 days depending on the severity of the addiction.
After the medication period you will no longer be dependant on alcohol, and should feel a great deal better. In most cases you should only need to see your detox nurse once, but if necessary you will receive follow ups visits, as your progress through treatment continues. We will discuss this during your first meeting with your independent prescriber.
