Detoxification, or detox, requires the flushing of all toxins out of the system. Ocean Recovery Centre provides a medicated detox programme which is designed specifically for each client by one of our doctors. The drug and alcohol detox regime is created on your first day at our drug and alcohol rehab centre. This means you are prescribed specialist medications to help with the withdrawal symptoms experienced during the detoxification programme.
Once the Doctor has created the prescribing plan, our experienced team will ensure all of your clinical and medical requirements are met. Your care is our highest priority and will be constantly reviewed during your stay to make sure your detoxification is working and your withdrawal from drugs or alcohol is safe and comfortable.
Detoxification regimes can vary depending on the type of drug addiction or the volume of alcohol that is consumed. All approved medications that are used during the detoxification process are governed by the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE). All of our doctors and treatments fully comply with the regulations ensuring you are in safe hands during the treatment.
The length of the drug and alcohol detoxification will depend on the addiction history; the type, level and frequency of the drug or alcohol consumption are major factors. Safe drug and alcohol detoxification can typically range between 7 and 28 days.
