When you come to us, you will receive high-end, luxury care, which will start when you going through a supervised detox. Let’s explore what that means fully, below.
What Is Detox?
When talking about any addiction, it is likely that you will hear the term “detox” brandished around. It is seen as a dangerous process, probably thanks to the film and television industry. In truth, detox from alcohol addiction – or any other substance abuse problem – is a dangerous process, and we are right to treat it with the caution that it deserves.
Detox is the process you go through to completely cleanse your body of any drugs. In this case, alcohol detox means not drinking any more, then having to ride out the consequences of this action on your body. Whether you are alcohol-dependent, or whether you abuse alcohol, the length of time that you have been addicted to it for will have a direct impact on how bad detoxification is. If you have been drinking for many years, your body and your brain have adapted to process large amounts of alcohol in order to keep you alive. If you suddenly stop cold turkey, without the supervision of a medical professional, you run the risk of your body going into shock. This can cause anything from hallucinations to heart failure.
When it comes to detox from alcohol, particularly if you have been drinking for a long time, you shouldn’t detox without medical supervision. Each of our establishments has a dedicated detox service on site, which allows our industry-leading professionals to help you stop drinking alcohol for good, in a safe environment.
Don’t take the chance. Long-term drinkers should not “go cold turkey”. Don’t sit around wondering how you go to detox. Reach out to the verve health admissions team today to discuss coming off drink safely.
Going Through Alcohol Withdrawal Syndrome in a Detox Clinic
When you do decide to stop drinking, you will go through a condition known as Alcohol Withdrawal Syndrome. This is the collective term given to the series of aches, pains, and general turmoil, that we experience when we stop drinking. Generally speaking, heavier drinkers will frequently experience AWS, while lighter drinkers won’t.
At the severe end of the alcohol withdrawal syndrome spectrum, you can expect things like audio-visual hallucinations, seizures, high fever, and extreme disorientation. On the lower end of the spectrum, headaches, sickness and diarrhoea, or dizziness, are but a few of the things to be expected.
In some cases the symptoms of AWS are so severe that it can force you back into the cycle of addiction. If you opt for a live-in detox clinic, this stops you having the same access to alcohol as you might have at home.
Although NHS advice is to endure alcohol cessation at home if you can. For an extremely heavy drinker who has been drinking for many years, this is physically dangerous. It is the Alcohol Withdrawal Syndrome which makes it dangerous. Even if your alcoholism is considered to be mild, you shouldn’t quit drinking without medical advice and someone to take care of you for those first few days
What does Detox Involve?
When you do make the decision to quit drinking, alcohol detox is the first step of that difficult process. You can expect it to be hard work which primarily focuses on making you comfortable as you endure alcohol withdrawal symptoms.
These symptoms cannot be avoided but however, can be carefully managed. It is the difficulty with which symptoms appear that makes it so vital that you seek the correct level of help. Since these symptoms can be so problematic, detoxification from alcohol as an outpatient needs careful monitoring. Inpatient treatment is therefore much preferred.
When you go through detox at any of the speciality Verve Health facilities, you can expect to have the support of both a nurse and a medical team. The medical staff will be able to prescribe medications that will make the process easier. Furthermore, when you go through detox alone, or at home, you risk giving in to your base instincts and pouring a drink. When you go through detox for alcoholism at our facilities, you are removed from this worry.
Removing yourself from the situations and triggers which normally cause you to drink is one of the biggest boosts you can give your chances of recovery success. If you can’t purchase it, you can’t drink it. Additionally, choosing detox with Verve Health allows staff to medically monitor/manage your condition. If you detox at home, alone, and something goes wrong, it could have dire consequences.
Remember, you can get in touch with us today if you are interested in finding out more about the detox from alcohol process. Similarly, reach out to us the second you decide that you want to book in. We will be happy to welcome you to either our Watton or Peterborough rehab clinics, depending on which detox centre is nearest you.
When you decide to detox from alcohol, there will be more to guiding you safely through this traumatic time than simple medication. Our expert team of healthcare professionals will also seek to get to the bottom of your addiction to alcohol. In the UK, you will typically be offered CBT or DBT therapies to help you cope with the symptoms of withdrawal.
Therapies used for Luxury Alcohol Detox, at that Verve Health Clinics
When you opt for our opulent alcohol detox service, you become privy to a range of therapies which can only be accurately described as ‘eclectic’. We believe that patients should have as much choice as possible within their own treatment plans. After detox these psychological therapies are likely to intensify in nature. Keep in mind that this difficult work will help you overcome alcohol abuse and addiction.
With this in mind, here are some of the deluxe therapies offered by our multitalented team while you go through detox:
- CBT– Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is the examination of your behaviour with the express intention of determining why you became addicted to alcohol in the first place.
- DBT– Dialectical Behavioural Therapy focuses on talking through your reactions and interactions with the aim of discovering habitual negative behaviours.
- Group therapy – Peer support is an important tool while going through the detox process. Withdrawal symptoms are likely to be intense and sharing your experience with others in a similar position can be wonderfully helpful during a difficult time
While our full alcoholism rehab programme contains far more choices in therapy than the detox process alone, these three psychological therapies can do a lot of good. Particularly when they are carried out by one of esteemed colleagues, here at Verve Health.
Each of our skilled therapists, counsellors, and psychologists, come fully vetted and with a wealth of experience behind them. We cordially invite you to take advantage of their knowledge to help solve your substance abuse problems and quit drinking for good.
If you are eager to get started, you can contact our admissions centre today and we will do all we can to get you placed in one of our high-end facilities, as soon as possible.
