Home Drug Detox

Drug detox can take place in several settings, and while you may be tempted to consider home detox, it may not be the most suitable option for you. Someone suffering from an alcohol or drug addiction should never attempt to rapidly home detox without medical supervision and shouldn’t try to go cold turkey. Doing so could lead to severe health consequences that may be deadly in some situations. Also, the severity of certain withdrawal symptoms makes it common for addicted individuals to abandon their home detox and return to drug or alcohol use. Visiting a medical detox centre and gaining the support of expert and experienced medical staff can help ensure safe detoxification and prevent relapse.

What Is a Medical Drug Detox?

Medical drug detox, or medical detoxification, allows you to slowly adjust to an alcohol or drug-free lifestyle with the help of healthcare professionals. It involves 24/7 care, medical monitoring, drug tapering and psychological therapy to provide a comfortable process as you quit using a substance. Medical drug detox often ensures that addicts don’t return to their unhealthy habit, which makes the process a significant part of long-term recovery. Medical drug detox is usually carried out by a clinical medical team, who create a custom detox process to control or prevent the severe side effects of withdrawal and encourage sustained recovery.

Withdrawal Symptoms

When you use drugs or alcohol for a prolonged period, it influences the chemical balance in your brain. During detox, the chemicals your brain has come to depend on are affected, and painful withdrawal symptoms begin to occur. Every addiction is unique, and not all withdrawal is the same. While generalised descriptions of withdrawal exist, your experience may or may not involve all the associated symptoms. The occurrence and severity of symptoms also depend on your physiology and how long you’ve been addicted.  Some of the common withdrawal symptoms include:

  • Fatigue
  • Sweating
  • Anxiety
  • Upset Stomach
  • Depression
  • Increased Appetite
  • Malaise
  • Agitation
  • Muscle Aches
  • Excessive Sweating
  • Rapid Heartbeat
  • Fever
  • Confusion
  • Dry Mouth
  • Uncontrollable Shaking

These effects may disappear after a few days or weeks, but they can also linger on for months. Without medical support, your withdrawal timeframe can last longer than expected and eventually lead to relapse.

Post Detox Treatment

Many people mistakenly believe that detox is the end of drug or alcohol addiction treatment. However, medical detox is simply a means to an end. It’s a first step, and after a detox programme is completed, you should transition to post-detox treatment to increase your likelihood of staying clean. Addicted individuals who have undergone detox need the support of a structured programme to rebuild their lives. Post-detox treatment involves counselling, and helps you uncover and address the core reasons behind your addiction. Continuing treatment after you detox can be highly beneficial and can improve your chances of maintaining sobriety.

Rehab Treatment Programme

There is no shortage of options when it comes to rehab treatment programmes for addiction. Therefore, it’s important to look for a programme that best suits your needs. When you’re comfortable with the treatment programme you’ve chosen, there’s a higher possibility that you’ll stick to it and see it through. It also means a higher chance of long-term sobriety. Our drug rehab treatment programme includes a wide variety of holistic therapies including:

  • Yoga & Meditation

Drug Detox for Teens (16-18)

Choosing the right rehab for your teenager can be confusing, especially when you notice them engaging in substance abuse or behavioural addictions. It is quite normal to want to seek help for them as soon as possible before too much damage is done.  Our sister centre Banbury Lodge has the perfect programme for teenagers. Treating addiction in teens requires a different approach than what is used with younger children and adults. Their brain chemistry and social needs are unique and they benefit more from a rehab programme tailored to meet these needs. We provide assessments from our leading adolescent psychologists to determine the extent of the teenager’s addiction, in addition to a holistic and teen-centric treatment in terms of focus, approach and delivery.


At Primrose Lodge, we incorporate the most advanced clinical, medical and holistic treatments to ensure your safety and comfort during detox. We also provide a serene environment that is both private and discrete. If you’re struggling to overcome addiction, you don’t have to be alone on this path. It’s never too late to live the drug-free life you’ve always desired. We encourage you to contact us now to learn more about your options and get the help and support you need.
