At Help4Addiction we support relapse prevention and want you to have long-term recovery. Our treatment options are designed to support your recovery from drug and alcohol addiction and get your life back on track.
We offer addiction treatment services all around the United Kingdom. If you’re looking for support with alcohol addiction in the Bristol area, we can help you with a home detox.
A home detox differs from residential rehab in Bristol, where you would go to a rehab centre. Instead, you can choose to undergo the detox process at home surrounded by your own comforts, and with the support of your family members and friends.
Doing a home detox takes less time, meaning if you don’t want many people to know about your alcohol addiction you can keep things private. It allows you to stay local, and you don’t have to go it alone.
You can access drug and alcohol support groups, use Alcoholics Anonymous, or other forms of therapy like cognitive behavioural therapy to help you during the recovery process.
We provide personalised support and resources for addiction recovery. Take the first step towards a brighter future today.
For certain people, home detox is an effective form of addiction treatment that gives people the freedom to detox at home without accessing residential rehab facilities. However, it’s not the best treatment plan for everyone.
Home detox is primarily aimed at people with mild substance abuse problems, and no other health conditions.
If you need to access a drug and alcohol rehab programme because you also suffer from drug addiction, then a home detox programme isn’t suitable. You should go to a rehab centre that can support you with both alcohol and drug addiction.
Home detox and rehab are both suitable options for addiction treatment, but you should always speak to a medical professional first to decide what the most suitable rehab treatment is for you.
There are some people who are not suitable for undergoing a home detox. These can be:
This list isn’t exhaustive, so to double-check your eligibility for a home detox programme, you can complete our questionnaire.
With Help4Addiction, the home detox kit will cost £1850. That covers your medical assessment, treatment plan, home detox kit, and any prescriptions that will be posted to you. Everything arrives at your door.
We complete our assessments online, so you don’t have to handle the awkward encounter of a medical professional coming to your house.
The NHS doesn’t offer home detox as part of their treatment programme for alcohol or drug addiction. So if you want to use them, you should go to an alcohol or drug rehab.
Sometimes that’s the best choice. However, if your alcohol addiction is less severe, then a home detox could be the most cost-effective choice.
Addiction residential rehabilitation can take weeks, whereas a home detox only takes 3-10 days. You can start the process whenever you like and don’t have the additional pressures of a rehab clinic. This means you can keep your addiction to yourself, without involving other people.
Just remember it’s okay to speak to your family members and get help from them during the recovery process, especially if you have withdrawal and need some support with daily activities.
You should take the full 10 days off work, but once you’re feeling better, you can return to your job.
It’s important to choose a medical detox instead of quitting alcohol cold turkey with no support. The primary reason is that you’ll suffer from alcohol withdrawal symptoms as your body rids itself of the toxins it’s built up because of your alcohol misuse.
You can suffer from physical issues like shaking hands, headaches, fatigue, sweating, shivers, and fevers. Mental health problems can also come on as part of your withdrawal symptoms.
People have reported depression, low mood, insomnia, and even suicidal thoughts. If you think you need some help with your mental health, you should always contact a medical professional.
Recovery from drug or alcohol addiction can take its toll on your body and mind. When you’re doing your home detox, you might find the first 48 hours are the worst but if you persevere through, then you’ll be well on your way to recovery.
The first step to kicking your alcohol addiction is to contact us as soon as possible. Our team are completely non-judgemental, and approachable.
We always put our patients first and aim to support people out of addiction, and into recovery. We’ll discuss all the treatment options available to you and can start your treatment programme when you’re ready.
If you’re concerned about your mental health as you withdraw from alcohol, we can get you in touch with counsellors, group therapy, or support groups, to help you through the hard process.
