Drug Detox

You're at the point where you want to do something about it. You can search the Internet and flick through the yellow pages for days on end without finding the right help.

If drugs have become the bane of your life, it can seem that there’s hundreds of programmes all claiming to help you. Choosing the right one can be very difficult.

Archangel Home Detox Ltd provides a safe, discreet and comfortable detox in the privacy of your own home. We offer a total abstinence programme. There’s no need to travel to distant get-aways to be confined to their grounds, and no need for anyone else to know about it.

Imagine how different a drug-free life would be? You'd have peace in your life, clarity of mind, and be more motivated.

What is detoxing?

Detoxification is the controlled withdrawal from drugs that have resulted in physiological and/or psychological dependence.

It is a procedure that aims to minimise withdrawal signs and your discomfort, and prevent the risks associated with suddenly stopping taking drugs that has resulted in dependence.

Detoxification is a carefully planned procedure that follows a complete assessment of the client, yet it is not a separate form of treatment for addiction in its own right. Detoxification is one step of a continual process – it need to be supported by a period of aftercare for you to produce long-lasting changes in behaviour.

Have you tried detoxing before?

It can be very difficult once drugs have become a part of your life. You may have tried to go cold turkey before but with little or no success.

Perhaps you've tried a pharmaceutical detox and it didn't work; this may be due to not having a structured plan and support team.

You may also have experienced unpleasant withdrawal symptoms such as:

  • Anxiety and restlessness
  • Sweating
  • Racing heart
  • Palpitations
  • Muscle tension
  • Tightness in the chest
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Tremor
  • Nausea, vomiting or diarrhoea

These symptoms happen because your body has become so accustomed to the presence of drugs that it starts to depend on them. This dependence means that when the drug level falls, your body complains in the form of withdrawal symptoms.

Our supervised assisted home detox will help you to stop takingdrugs more safely and comfortably and allow you to get on with your life.

The Home Detox process

  • An Archangel addiction nurse visits you at your home to establish if you're suitable for detox

  • You'll then meet the Doctor who'll assess you and prescribe the medication you'll need

  • Our Archangel addiction nurse will then help you take the medication during the withdrawal phase

  • Our counsellors will then spend time with you

The length of the programme depends on your individual treatment plan, after which your support systems will be in place.

To make our service cost effective a friend or family member should be present. There are solutions available should you wish to do it alone.
