HELPING YOU UNDERSTAND DETOX
As part of a rehab programme, certain people may require a detox from either drugs or alcohol. The purpose of the detox is to ensure that you are withdrawn from alcohol or drugs safely and comfortably.
As part of your treatment at The Providence Projects, you will be registered with The Providence Surgery who have been recognised for their ‘outstanding’ work in the field of addiction treatment. With a team of doctors trained in both alcohol and substance misuse, on your day of arrival you will be fully assessed by a specialist doctor at The Providence Surgery before commencing your detox regime if required.
The senior medical team including Dr Turnbull and Dr Ni’man have many years of experience specialising in this field and genuinely understand addiction and withdrawal.
During your detox, you will be engaging in the therapy programme at The Providence Projects. In many ways, it is the support that you receive whilst on detox, which is key to the successful completion of detox.
During your detox, your medication will be administered by the counselling team whilst any medical reviews are carried out by the medical team.
Prior to admission, a full assessment will be carried out gathering information on your alcohol or drug use, the quantities and regularity of your use, general health, other medications, previous detox or rehab attempts and importantly, what you want from a rehab programme.
Assessments can be carried out either on the telephone or face-to-face. Once assessments have been completed, admission can be arranged.
