Private Detox Clinics
All across the UK there are day programs and detox clinics run by the NHS. Yet these publicly funded programs do not always have the highest rates of success. This is not a slight on the NHS; it is just a simple matter of reality. They are not equipped to handle addiction issues with the same professionalism offered by a private clinic.
Private detox clinics tend to do a better job helping addicts because that is all they focus on. They are not worried about family medicine, the common cold, allergies, or any of the other things that distract NHS physicians and clinicians. What’s more, a private clinic has the added incentive of being successful in its mission in order to remain in business. Private Rehab Helper understands this is all part of the addiction recovery environment.
The private detox clinics we work with are some of the best in the business. They know what it takes to help break the cycle of addiction that imprisons so many in the UK. Whether it’s alcohol or drugs, our detox clinics can help. You owe it to yourself to contact us if you or a loved one is suffering from addiction.
The Detox Principle
Whether the addict decides to enrol in a rehabilitation program or not, it is essential he or she go through detox. The principle of detox is to completely separate the addict from his/her substance of choice in order to force withdrawal. In severe cases, a clinic may use interdictive medications to make the process a little bit easier.
The length of time detox takes depends on a number of factors, including:
- The length of the addiction.
- The substance or substances used by the addict.
- The willingness of the addict to be rehabilitated.
- The physical health of the addict.
Because there are so many factors involved, it is not advisable for drug addicts to attempt detox on their own. In some cases, it might even be dangerous. Some drugs do extensive damage to the body – damage that can easily lead to complications or, in some cases even death.
What to Expect Next
It is not uncommon for someone to choose a private detox clinic because he or she needs to be free from drugs within a short amount of time. Moreover, for some people detox is all that is needed. In such cases, you can expect the addict to be completely drug-free in a week or two.
In cases where underlying issues are also in play, detox may not be enough. It may be necessary to enrol in a rehab program capable of getting at the heart of the addiction issue. The only way to know for sure is to seek a proper evaluation from professionals. Our private detox clinics can provide that evaluation.
