Research has shown that a medically based in-patient alcohol detox at an approved alcohol treatment centre is the safest, and most effective, method to begin a process of rehabilitation from the effects of alcoholism. The detox programmes at our centres are individually tailored to the requirements of each patient. Careful assessment of the general health of the patient along with an expert analysis of their drinking habits enables medical staff to identify the most suitable medication to prescribe and to decide on the optimum period of alcohol detox.
Patients will be medically monitored throughout the treatment, which usually takes between 7 to 10 days. The medication prescribed will often include Librium, or other benzodiazapines, depending on the history and individual requirements of the patient. In many cases Thiamine and vitamin tablets can be used as part of the alcohol detox to deal with problems of malnourishment caused by excessive alcohol consumption.
