Addiction to alcohol can grow insiduously, creating havoc in people’s lives before they actively realise they have a problem. By the time the problem is addressed, the situation may have reached crisis point and the problem can seem huge and impossible to combat.To produce effective results, the treatment programme contains a wide range of workshops and sessions allowing the addict to address issues of a physical, emotional and psychological nature.
Detoxification is a medically-supervised treatment programme for alcohol addiction, designed to purge the body of intoxicating substances. Generally, it is the first step in overcoming addiction and is part of a planned programme of rehabilitation at PROMIS. For more information on detox, please click here.
In order to avoid alcohol withdrawal symptoms, benzodiazepines such as diazepam or chlordiazepoxide are often prescribed. The type of medication and the length of its use for detoxification takes into account the patient’s individual specific needs.
PROMIS provides a stimulating and supportive environment for patients at all times. This enables patients to develop alternative coping strategies. During the programme, the warm and friendly surroundings of the clinic promote a feeling of safety and security which assists in the rehabilitation process, allowing the patient to feel protected and to appreciate the treatment.

Our treatment programme also explores the way a patient needs to believe that there is life after alcohol -and a rewarding one.The treatment can only be viewed as a success if the patient comes to value his or her role in society and recognises their ability to lead a fulfilling life without alcohol.
The nature of the programme, combined with the individual’s need to get on with life, means the treatment process will be intense. This is essential to produce the right result.
