Detoxification Programme

As a leading clinic for the treatment of behavioural health issues, including addiction to alcohol, illegal drugs and prescription medication, Life Works is Dedicated to Recovery. We are able to provide a safe alcohol and drug detox programme tailored to the needs of the individual, and all under full medical supervision.

Our dedicated detox room is conveniently located very close to our on-site nursing team and extra assistance can be made available to those clients who require it.

If you are looking for more information about a detox programme but do not know where to turn, please give us a call on 0800 081 0700 for a discreet conversation on how we can help you. Alternatively you can email us here for a private discussion about how we can help.

What happens on the detox programme?

Upon admission, our medical staff conduct a thorough medical assessment and each detox programme is tailor-made for the individual, dependent on:

  • The type of drugs that the individual has been taking.
  • The severity of the individual's withdrawal symptoms.
  • How the individual presents to the medical staff.

During the first day, each client is medically observed and monitored for 24 hours, and then daily thereafter, to see how he / she is coping medically at each stage of the detoxification process.

After the first 24 hours of the detox, and following a medical assessment, the individual will be expected to engage and participate in selected parts of the treatment programme.

How long does the detox programme last?

The duration of each alcohol or drug detox varies, according to the particular needs of the individual. Our detox programmes are designed to ensure that the process is safe, medically efficient and managed as smoothly as possible for each client.

Where required, a short alcohol detox may be possible, so long as it can be achieved without causing undue medical or psychological concern to the individual.
