Prescription Medication Detox
PROMIS offers a methodical approach to help patients detox successfully from prescription medication under calming conditions in a warm and luxurious setting. For more information on detox, please click here.
When an individual on prescribed medication decides to quit too readily in the healing process without medical supervision or assistance, they may develop overwhelming withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms can range from anxiety and mood swings to vomiting and seizures. This is why the process of detox from prescription medication should be applied under supervision.
The most important step in the detox process is the gradual reduction of the dosage in accordance with the realistic needs of the patient. A plan is achieved between both the patient and those at PROMIS which can achieve the best and most effective results. Individual patients are different and so it follows that the process of their detox is too.
Our team at PROMIS take into account the unique circumstances surrounding each patient, the amount of dosage taken, the length of time they have been using, behavioural patterns and many other contributing factors. However, this is only part of the process and an intense residential programme is offered to further long term recovery.
PROMIS believes that your surroundings have an impact on the quality of recovery, being relaxed and having time in the right atmosphere to think in is essential to the healing process. Residential Primary Care takes place at the PROMIS Rehabilitation Clinic located in the Kent countryside. For more information on primary care please click here.
Upon admission, a comprehensive assessment process begins which is followed by the creation of a personalised treatment plan. Our team of professionals will all contribute to the plan ranging from psychological input to addressing physical needs. This approach will provide invaluable specialist support to ensure a safe and productive recovery.
Detoxification is medically supervised, and is usually the first step in overcoming addiction and occurs as part of a planned programme of rehabilitation here at PROMIS. Naturally, this process can be emotionally exhausting, so therapists are on hand to provide support through one-to-one sessions and group therapy.
