Alcohol Home Treatment

Alcohol is enjoyed safely by a large number of people all over the world and, while many get into temporary crisis (i.e. get drunk) the vast majority avoid ongoing problems. Unfortunately, that is not the case for all people and, for some, their alcohol consumption gets out of control for a variety of reasons. As a result, they may look to have a private alcohol detox.

An Introduction to Alcohol Detox

A non alcoholic drink

If you are experiencing withdrawal symptoms from alcohol, that means that you are physically dependent and need to undergo alcohol detoxification, more commonly called alcohol detox.

Alcohol detox consists of a treatment programme which normally lasts around a week during which a drug is taken that counteracts alcohol withdrawal symptoms. Initially, high doses are taken and this is reduced over the period of the alcohol detoxification. Using the appropriate level of medication, all withdrawal symptoms can be eliminated making alcohol detox safe and, in many cases, even comfortable.

It is common for people who have been drinking heavily to be suffering a vitamin deficiency and a vitamin supplement is given to help resolve this issue. Anti-nausea medication may also be given and, occasionally, medication to prevent seizures, if you have previously suffered from these.

Depending on your current situation with regard to your living arrangements and health, it is possible that a private home alcohol detox could be carried out with support. If you are suffering health problems related to your alcohol consumption, it may be necessary to under go an alcohol detox treatment in hospital.

Are You Doing Sober Spring?

Private Alcohol Detox From Paul Turner

The usual price of a private home alcohol treatment is £950.00 if you are located on the UK mainland. However, where appropriate, I am avoiding unnecessary travel and can do video consultations in cases where the medical situation is straightforward. Where it is possible to do that initial consultation by video, the price for a home alcohol detox is £800.

There is additional modern medical treatment for alcohol addiction called The Sinclair Method

I offer a client-led alcohol home detox solution. I will not preach to you, or dictate how you fix your situation. It is your life, you know yourself best and you know the best way for you to proceed. You just need some support and perhaps some practical advice to plan how you proceed to get your life back on track.

You could’ve already completed an alcohol detox in the past but feel yourself falling back into old habits and need extra support. That is where our client-centric approach really helps.

There are a number of companies offering a private alcohol detox that can be found online. Some of these are reliable and trustworthy, their aim is to ensure that you undergo a safe and comfortable alcohol detox. Others, unfortunately, are keen to get your payment and then send out a prescription without a full detailed assessment and only a phone number which you can choose to use if you like. This is extremely dangerous practice and I, and many of my colleagues, consider this practice an ‘accident waiting to happen.’

I am happy to talk to any friends or relatives who are concerned a love one has alcohol problems but I must point out that there is no way to force a person to take action regarding their alcohol issues. They must conclude, themselves, that they need to deal with the problem. They can be given a nudge in the right direction, but they have to recognise that there is a problem.

I offer private alcohol home treatment in Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham, however, I can offer my services to any person residing in the UK, depending on the outcome of a medical assessment.
