Is A Home Detox The Same As Drug and Alcohol Rehab Centres In Liverpool?

Home detox and entering treatment centres are different versions of addiction treatment. Opting to go into rehabilitation centres involves being surrounded by medical professionals at all times and being supported with group therapy or individual therapy throughout the detox process.

For some people, this is the best option for their mental health and journey to recovery. However, for others who would benefit from staying at home and don’t feel they need the intense process of rehab centres, the home detox is a perfectly acceptable form of treatment.

Personalised Support For Your Recovery

We provide personalised support and resources for addiction recovery. Take the first step towards a brighter future today.

What Is A Home Alcohol Detox?

A home detox programme is where you decide to do the detox from alcohol at home, instead of going to residential rehab in Liverpool with a lengthy admissions process.

If you do a home detox with Help4Addiction, medical professionals will assess you, and then sent all the tools you need to kick your alcohol addiction at home. You’ll be given a detox kit, and prescription drugs sent right to your front door.

You can look at our full range of drug and alcohol addiction treatment programmes here to find out which one is right for you.

For more information on our process, and to see our frequently asked questions you can visit our home detox page.

Benefits of Detoxing At Home

Choosing to detox at home means you can have the help and support of a loved one throughout the recovery process. It means you can stay local, without having to visit a centre and experience any withdrawal symptoms with lots of distractions around you.

You can also decide when to do the detox yourself, with no pressure from anyone else. No waiting for a bed to become free for residential treatment in busy rehab centres, you can start as soon as possible.

Alcohol Withdrawal Symptoms

Quitting alcohol cold turkey without the help and support of a clinical team is difficult. Your body will experience physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms, as you’ve got used to the buildup of toxins in your body from alcohol abuse. That’s why it’s best to ensure a long-term recovery by using the support of addiction treatment.

Psychological withdrawal symptoms can include depression, low mood, anxiety, anger, irritability, insomnia, and fatigue. But they can extend to suicidal feelings. If you’re feeling suicidal, you contact your GP and get help and support from a medical team.

You can experience physical withdrawal. Things like shaking hands, headaches, chills, shivers, and fevers are all common side effects of quitting alcohol.

Home Detox Price Vs Rehab Cost?

At Help4Addiction the cost for a home detox kit is £1850. That includes your medical assessment and home detox kit. However, there are some people that don’t suit home detoxes so you should check our eligibility with our short questionnaire first before you buy anything.

]If you’ve had a history of drug abuse or have both a drug and alcohol addiction, then you’ll benefit more from residential alcohol rehab in Liverpool. A home detox also isn’t suitable if you have other health issues like epilepsy or seizures, or suffer from mental health issues.

We also don’t recommend it for people with severe alcohol addictions that are long-term. For those people, going into a rehab centre for additional support can be a key way to ensure long-term recovery.

It’s a more cost-effective method than seeking residential alcohol rehab in Liverpool, so if you have a milder alcohol addiction then a home detox can be much easier on the wallet than seeking private rehab.

Assessment For Home Detox

Your home detox assessment will take place over Skype, Zoom, or Facetime at a time convenient to you. Unlike other alcohol rehabs in Liverpool, we’ll always be flexible with your time and you won’t have the uncomfortable situation of strangers coming into your property.

Once you’ve been assessed a kit will be posted to you and a prescription sent to the pharmacy, so all your prescription drugs to help you through the recovery process will arrive at your door. You’ll have everything you need without leaving the house.

How Long Does a Medically Assisted Alcohol Detox At Home Take?

If you decide to do a home detox it can last from 3 to 10 days. That’s helpful because it means if you work you don’t have to take much time off like when you go into a treatment centre.

You can finish the process in a couple of weeks. After the 10 days, the initial detox effects and withdrawal symptoms should have worn off.

You can continue to seek help in support groups for alcohol and drug addiction recovery, or go to a drugs and alcohol counsellor who specialises in therapy for people with substance abuse problems.

Home Detox: NHS Or Private Healthcare?

At present, the NHS doesn’t offer home detox as one of its treatment options. If you’re looking to use the NHS for your alcohol rehab in Liverpool, you’ll have to go to one of their rehab clinics. They provide a robust rehab programme, but it’s not the only option.

When weighing up the rehab cost, you should also consider how much time you’ll miss from your work if you have a job. A residential rehab on the NHS can last weeks. Sometimes accessing private treatment is more efficient, and cost-effective long-term.
