For many people, starting a drug or alcohol detox journey can seem like a very steep hill to climb. Often, the person will be feeling frightened and daunted at the prospect of experiencing the physical and psychological symptoms of withdrawal.

At Claimont, we provide a private home detox service for you or your loved one that is both convenient and discreet, delivering specialist services for recovery without leaving home.

This helps you start your journey to recovery in a home environment as an alternative to rehab or other clinical settings, which in turn helps with the drug or alcohol detox process.

Private drug & alcohol home detox 

Dependency can have a profoundly negative impact on individuals, as well as their friends and family. It tends to revolve around drug or alcohol use, which causes them to neglect other aspects of life. This can lead to damaged relationships and a decline in social and work life. It’s not uncommon for those suffering to experience physical and psychological health decline. 

Common substances that can cause dependency include: 

  • Alcohol
  • Benzodiazepines such as diazepam, alprazolam and temazepam 
  • Opiate drugs such as heroin, morphine, codeine and methadone
  • Stimulants such as cocaine and amphetamines

Despite recognising the harm caused by drug and alcohol dependency, individuals will often find it difficult to stop using them, which can lead to harmful consequences. Hospital-based detox can be both intimidating and stigmatising for patients. That’s why Claimont offers specialist alcohol and drug home detox as an alternative to hospitals and private detox centres. 

At Claimont, we offer private drug and alcohol detox services in collaboration with preferred specialist providers. We support individuals in attending clinical appointments, local fellowship meetings, or other recovery services (e.g., residential rehabilitation) as needed for drug detox and alcohol detox, all within the comfort of their own homes.

Private drug detox at home 

The primary goal of home drug detox is to allow your body the time it needs to detoxify and recover from drug abuse, preparing you for long-term treatment. During the initial days, you may experience physical withdrawal symptoms, which can range from intense to mild, depending on the patient. With our private drug detox alternative, you’ll receive the necessary support and care to navigate this process successfully.

Psychological withdrawals can often be more challenging to cope with than the physical effects, making it crucial to have the right assistance for a safe and effective recovery.

Opting for home detox for drugs allows you to recover in the presence of your loved ones, which can be immensely valuable and beneficial. You can maintain your normal routine, attend work, and engage in hobbies while undergoing a comprehensive home detox program that ensures your well-being and progress towards recovery.

Private alcohol detox at home

If you have been heavily consuming alcohol for an extended period, stopping or reducing your alcohol intake may lead to both mental and physical challenges. To ensure a proper and well-supported process, it’s essential to seek the right assistance. Our private alcohol home detox programs offer an excellent alternative to private alcohol clinics, providing you with the necessary support to stop alcohol consumption safely.

Facing alcohol dependence can be a daunting battle, but you don’t have to go through it alone. Our private alcohol detox at-home service serves as an ideal alternative to rehab, allowing you to conquer alcohol dependency from the comfort of your own home, surrounded by your loved ones while maintaining your regular daily routine. This comprehensive approach to private alcohol detox ensures a healthier and more successful path to recovery.

What happens during the drug & alcohol detox at-home process?

Claimont Health offers professional and secure drug and alcohol home detox to support individuals that are in the first stages of recovery from drug or alcohol misuse or dependence, managing substance withdrawal in a supervised and controlled environment to reduce withdrawal symptoms and the risk of severe consequences.

Following the full psychiatric and medical assessment to identify the suitability and safety of private home detox, your live-in nurse or companion will support your individual care plan. Usually, this will involve:

  • Offering emotional support in your own environment
  • Liaising with the Consultant Psychiatrist, GP or other clinicians involved in your care
  • Managing your medication to overcome withdrawal symptoms from alcohol or drugs
  • Helping you to develop healthier routines
  • Assisting you with preparing food and monitoring your nutritional status
  • Helping with your personal care
  • Withdrawal effects and therefore treatments tend to last between 5-14 days, depending on the substance(s).

The next phase of the recovery involves treatment of the underlying factors that predisposed, precipitated or maintained the illness as well as treating its consequences, for example, mental or physical ill health, past experiences, social alienation or narrowing of activities.

Why choose private home detox over a private centre?

There are many reasons why you may choose private home detox over a private centre or hospital. One of which is accessibility. With private alcohol detox at home, you don’t have the hassle of having to travel to a rehab centre, all treatment is delivered in the comfort of your own home. This is particularly useful for those who can’t leave their home or can’t drive.

Another reason why private detox is preferred by many of our clients is that they receive much more personalised care than they would if they were to be in a hospital or private clinic. While private centres do offer personalised care, private alcohol detox, as well as private drug detox services can be tailored even more to individual needs and preferences. Family members or close friends can actively participate in supporting the person during the detox process.

Not only this, but the wait times are much lower for private detox services at home, meaning you can get the support a lot quicker, pushing towards a faster recovery. 

Why choose Claimont for private home detox?

At Claimont, we believe in providing our patients with the best possible care while helping them feel comfortable and in control of their recovery process. With our private home detox service, you don’t have to worry about feeling unsafe or overwhelmed in a hospital setting – you can start your journey towards recovery on your own terms.

The journey to sobriety can often take months and may require a number of different services. Claimont Health provides support during this journey by way of live-in companionship during our private home detox service.

  • What is home treatment?

    Home treatment is a convenient and discreet private service for those who prefer to start their recovery journey in a home environment as an alternative to a hospital, residential rehab or other clinical settings. Private drug and alcohol rehabilitation can be treated even more efficiently in home settings, so this is the ideal choice for those who wish to remain at home. 

  • How do I begin home treatment?

    If you commit to a drug or alcohol home treatment, you’ve already taken the first step into your rehabilitation. From here, you will be invited to a consultation where one of our friendly staff members will speak to you about your circumstances including your substance use and personal situation. You may also need to provide a urine or saliva sample during this process.

    From there, we can discuss the treatment options that would best suit your circumstances and map out a bespoke plan that’s perfectly tailored to your needs. You will also be assigned a live-in nurse or companion to gently guide you through your recovery.

  • What is alcohol withdrawal treatment?

    Claimont’s alcohol withdrawal treatment is a process that helps individuals overcome their physical dependence on alcohol. It involves removing traces of alcohol from the body and addressing its effects on the individual’s mental, emotional and physical well-being. During this time, it’s common for withdrawal symptoms to occur which our team can help you manage in an effective and safe way.

    If this is something you’re experiencing, you get in touch with our team so that we can provide you with our private alcohol home treatment.

  • At home alcohol treatment - how long does take?

    The process for alcohol treatment will vary from person to person, as this will depend on the amount and type of substance that was being used by the individual. Once your body has been cleared of all traces of alcohol or drugs, you can move onto the next phase of your recovery which involves treating the underlying causes and consequences of dependancy. 

    This will require professional guidance, which our team is available to provide through ongoing support during your treatment.

  • What is drug withdrawal treatment?

    The process for rehabilitation for illicit drugs or prescription medications is similar to alcohol in that it involves managing withdrawal symptoms and helping you overcome your physical dependence. Claimont’s home based treatment focuses on treating the individual’s underlying mental, emotional and physical health issues while gradually introducing healthier habits into their lifestyle.

  • What withdrawal symptoms can I expect?

    A home treatment plan aided by medicine will reduce any withdrawal symptoms, however, some will appear regardless. Within the first few hours, you should expect the early symptoms of withdrawal to present themselves. 

    These symptoms, which will intensify and then subside within a few days depending on the severity of your condition, may include the following:

    • Mild tremors
    • Insomnia
    • Sweating
    • Nausea
    • Headaches
    • Dry mouth
    • Anxiety or mood swings
    • Difficulty concentrating
  • What happens after home treatment?

    Once your home treatment has been completed, you will be advised on how to continue abstinence in order to avoid a relapse. Our specialists will recommend an aftercare technique that works best for you.

    As an example, attending therapy can help you to work through your emotions following withdrawal. You may also benefit from finding a support network of people with similar lived experiences, such as Alcoholics Anonymous.

  • Who is not suitable for the home treatment process?

    Although the prospect of home treatment is a much more appealing one to the patient than hospital care, it’s not always the right option for everyone. When assessing your or your loved one’s unique circumstances, you should ensure that they are suitable for this process.

    Extra specialist care may be needed for a patient with the following:

    • A history of seizures
    • A history of eating disorders
    • An on-going pregnancy
    • Withdrawal-induced aggression
    • Chronic health concerns such as heart disease, diabetes, lung issues or liver disease
  • Will I need to take medication?

    If your personal circumstances call for it, you may need to take medication alongside your treatment. Depending on your prescription, your medication will help ease the recovery process on a temporary basis.
