Detoxification Advice 

Detoxing from alcohol or drugs should only be carried out under medical supervision. Not only will it be unnecessarily uncomfortable if you try it without medical advice, but you are also at risk of serious life-threatening side effects such as seizures or delirium tremens.

Rehab Guide can organise detoxification programs in treatment centres or at your own home.

Medically Supervised Detox:

A medically supervised detoxification is carried out by a doctor who will assess your health and prescribe a controlled prescription designed to help with the following:

– Designed to ease withdrawal distress

– Ensures alcohol or drug withdrawal seizures do not occur

Chlordiazepoxide, which is commonly named Librium, is usually prescribed to individuals who have an alcohol dependency. It is a sedative that eases the distress of withdrawal. It is also a muscle relaxant and a ‘hypnotic’, which means it induces sleep which makes the alcohol withdrawal much more comfortable. It is also anxiolytic, which means it helps with anxiety. Lastly and most importantly, Librium is anti-convulsant, meaning it is an anti-seizure drug.
