Quick Access

When you suffer from alcohol addiction, you are best getting support if you decide to quit. The road to recovery is long and paved with withdrawal symptoms, so you can use the support of Alcoholics Anonymous, rehab centres, or a home alcohol detox programme.

Seeking addiction treatment is the first step toward drug or alcohol addiction recovery, and Help4Addiction works across the UK to support people in getting free from drug and alcohol addiction.

We support people with drug rehab, and alcohol rehab in Birmingham to help people get free from addiction and get their life back.

What Is A Home Detox?

Home detox can be a cost-effective form of addiction treatment instead of going into residential rehab. Instead of going to a rehab centre, you can detox from alcohol addiction at home.

It’s still a medically assisted form of addiction treatment, as you can get medical assessments prior to beginning the detox.

A detox can last from 3 to 10 days, and you should always create a treatment plan before beginning. This form of drug and alcohol treatment programme is suitable for people who have less severe alcohol addictions, and don’t have other health conditions.

The point is, that you complete your alcohol detox at home instead of completing treatment at an alcohol rehab centre.

With a home detox, you don’t have to travel, you can stay local and start your addiction treatment as an outpatient, beginning the rehabilitation process while staying in your own comforts.

It’s a less stressful experience, with minimal disruption to your life. No scary clinic, no 12-step programme, just you and your kit at home. It’s an evidence-based treatment method and has proven results in long-term recovery and reducing alcohol use.

Is A Home Detox Better Than Drug And Alcohol Rehab?

If you’re seeking rehab in Birmingham or the West Midlands, you can decide to use a home detox treatment or enter drug and alcohol rehab.

Residential rehab is a more structured programme that is suitable for people who have a severe alcohol addiction and require medically assisted support throughout the entire recovery process.

Whereas, home detox treatment is aimed more at people who have a milder alcohol addiction and could undergo the detox treatment within the comforts of their own space.

It’s also more suitable for people who don’t have other health problems or a dual diagnosis of both drug and alcohol addiction. People who access residential rehab will also get access to support groups and therapy sessions during their alcohol rehab stay.

If you’re struggling to make your decision about rehab in Birmingham, you can look at a full range of addiction treatment options here.

Alcohol Addiction Withdrawal

While undergoing the addiction treatment programme, as soon as you stop drinking alcohol you can start suffering from alcohol withdrawal symptoms.

Withdrawal symptoms can be a range of physical or psychological, and can also affect your mental health.

Physical symptoms can include headaches, shivers, chills, and can go up to a cardiac arrest. That’s why it’s so important to get medical support while you’re going through addiction treatment.

Psychological symptoms go from low mood, tiredness, depression, and irritability. You should monitor your mental health during the entire recovery process, sometimes group therapy sessions can help you get through what can be a difficult time.

It’s important that to ensure long-term recovery, you let people help and support you during the recovery process. This could involve a loved one living with you while you do your home detox, or accessing support groups.

Can I Do Home-Based Treatment On The NHS?

Unfortunately, the NHS doesn’t do alcohol detox addiction treatment at home, so if you’re looking to complete a home alcohol treatment plan, you’ll have to opt for going private and paying for it. There is also private rehab in Birmingham if you’re looking for other treatment options.

Costs Of Alcohol Home Detox In Birmingham

At Help4Addiction, the cost for our home alcohol detox kit is £1850. It’s important you ensure you’re eligible before you purchase it, so fill in our questionnaire first to ensure a home detox is the right addiction rehab treatment option for you.

Home Alcohol Detox Eligibility

Doing an alcohol detox home isn’t suitable for everyone. If you have health problems, or mental health conditions then it could be better to go to a drug and alcohol rehab centre where you’ll get more help and support at a structured rehab programme and access to therapy.

You also wouldn’t be eligible for home detox if you had an alcohol use disorder, or suffered from a severe alcohol abuse problem.

The worse the alcohol addiction is, the more severe withdrawal can be, so it would be more pertinent to go into a residential rehab treatment programme.

You also can’t do a home detox if you have drug and alcohol abuse problems. If there’s a dual diagnosis it’s better to access private rehab or an NHS residential rehab.

The Alcohol Home Detox Process

With the Help4Addiction home alcohol detox process, we understand that having medical professionals come to your house can be scary and intrusive. So we conduct all of our medical assessments via Skype, Zoom, or Facetime. We work in a way that is most convenient for you.

Once you contact us via our questionnaire, we’ll send out a home detox kit and prescriptions to you. It can take 3 to 10 days to complete the detox and to ensure relapse prevention you should seek help from a loved one while you complete it.

When withdrawing from alcohol or drugs, you should always get help during the recovery. This could be via support groups or Alcoholics Anonymous.
