Detoxification doesn’t have to be unpleasant. At PROMIS we make the detox as relaxed, comfortable, efficient and effective as possible. A full medical assessment determines what level of medication is required, provided alongside proper nutrition, rest and particular supportive therapies.
Having our own specialist detox doctor and 24-hour nursing means that you can be assured that your safety and comfort are our number one priority.
Everybody’s experience with addiction has been different and so it is important to be sure that the detox process is individualised. If a patient has found one detox drug better than another in the past, then we will adapt our detox to suit them. Having confidence that our patients will be listened to and having flexibility is really important for a comfortable detox.
Requiring a detox often means that we haven’t been monitoring our health closely. Having a proper medical team to be able to be aware of health concerns is something that sets PROMIS apart from many clinics. As part of your detox process, we will test your blood and also perform an ECG to check your heart. Often, this helps start getting the correct treatment and avoid the tragic consequences ongoing addiction can cause.
Very soon, medications can be reduced. Patients then find themselves able to participate fully in the therapy programs.
The detox is:
- Tailored to meet the specific needs of each individual.
- Any potential physical withdrawal symptoms and mental anxiety.
- Reassurance, comfort and effectiveness.
Located in a peaceful London mews or rural or quintessentially English countryside, it is the ideal environment for detoxification and ongoing support.
