The process is discreet and convenient to help you quit alcohol and minimise withdrawal symptoms.

We offer a total abstinence programme. There’s no obligation to travel, but you can get many of the services of an alcohol rehab at home. The idea of a home alcohol detox is to replicate the experience of rehab as closely as possible but in your own home. You will be able to get medication and a treatment plan from our doctor. Also, you can use our online counselling service during your detox to support your efforts without having to leave your home.

Rehab Guide is unrivalled in providing affordable and private help in your home. Our expert team will guide and assist you daily throughout your self-detox.

Help With Self Detox

Rehab offers the medical, domestic and therapeutic support you need to recover in a safe space, which is why it is such a popular choice for those struggling with addiction. It isn’t for everyone, though. You may prefer to stay at home and feel more comfortable there or be unable to leave due to family or work commitments. This shouldn’t mean you are without support. Assisted self-detox is the best form of at-home alcohol rehab. You won’t have to suffer the stress and danger of ‘cold turkey’ thanks to a prescription from a detox doctor, and you can participate in online support groups and counselling to keep you on track.

What Happens in an Alcohol Detox at Home?

  1. Phone Assessment: A detox doctor will call you and ask questions to decide if home detox is right for you.
  2. Home Visit: The doctor will visit you at home for a medical examination and answer any questions.
  3. Prescription: You will receive a detox prescription based on your examination, vitamins, and dietary advice.
  4. Follow Up: depending on your needs, the doctor will visit again or call to check your progress.
  5. Recovery Help: The doctor and our team advise on counselling, support groups and lifestyle for long-term recovery.

We will arrange for a specialist addiction doctor to visit you at your home and conduct a full medical examination.

As all our doctors are specialist addictions doctors, they have a wealth of experience treating withdrawal. They can offer advice and tips for an alcohol detox diet, make the detox hassle-free, and longer-term strategies to remain abstinent.

Alcohol detox at home is the controlled withdrawal from alcohol after your body or mind has become dependent on it. It is undertaken by our addiction doctor who travels to you. It is a procedure that aims to minimise the signs of withdrawal and the discomfort they cause you. It also prevents the risks of suddenly stopping drinking while dependent on alcohol.

Detoxification is a carefully planned medicated procedure that follows a complete assessment of the client’s physical and mental condition by our addictions prescribing doctor.

Home Alcohol Detox Tips

Why Detox At Home?

Alcohol detox at home provides a safe, discreet and comfortable detox in the privacy of your own home and has the following benefits:

  •  No waiting list – get treatment immediately
  • Tailored medical treatment delivered to you
  • Familiar environment – at home or wherever you choose
  • Family and friend support if needed
  • Privacy and anonymity
  • Cost-effective treatment
  • Self-referral – no need to contact your GP/doctorImagine how different an alcohol-free life would be—the peace, clarity of mind, and motivation to achieve things.

Do I need a Home Alcohol Detox?

It can be very difficult to get away from drinking alcohol after it’s become an essential part of your life.  Just as you were getting off alcohol, you started experiencing withdrawal symptoms, such as:

  • Excessive sweating
  • Shakiness in your hands and legs
  • Irritability and restlessness
  • Feelings of anxiety
  • Problems with sleeping at night
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Loss of appetite

The only way at the time for you to get rid of these symptoms was to start drinking again. You didn’t have a structured plan or support team, not because you cannot achieve detox. Doing an alcohol detox at home with medication can help with these symptoms and reduce the chances of relapse.

The withdrawal you experience happens because your system has become so accustomed to the presence of alcohol it expects it to be there. You have become dependent on alcohol. So when the level of alcohol in your blood falls, your body starts to complain. Our supervised Home Detox can help you get off alcohol safely and comfortably to get on with the rest of your life.

Call our confidential helpline on 02072052845, 01224402080 or 0141 427 3491 for info or to book your assessment.

Alcohol Detox at Home Guide

The process of getting you off alcohol through alcohol detox at home is as simple as this:

1. An addiction doctor visits you at home to establish whether Home Detox is appropriate for your circumstances.
2. Your doctor assesses your condition and prescribes the medication you’re going to need.
3. Our addiction doctor monitors the detox process.

The length of time involved depends on your treatment plan. After the detox, your aftercare and support systems should be in place.
To make our service as cost-effective as possible, a friend or family member should be with you during the treatment, but solutions are available should you wish to detox from alcohol at home alone.



How Long is a Home Detox?

Alcohol detox at home usually lasts 7 days. It can vary depending on individual health circumstances, but seven days is a good indicator. Recovery may take longer than this of course. Given that the average inpatient stay is close to a month, if you want to replicate the services of alcohol rehab at home we recommend using online counselling and complimentary treatments to continue your recovery after detox.

Can I Detox from Alcohol at Home While Working?

We recommend that you do not work during the detox as it’s best to minimise stress during the treatment. Also, the detox drugs prescribed are usually sedatives and can make you sleepy or drowsy.

It can be done by taking a couple of days off work at the start of the detox. The doctor can provide you with a doctor’s note for your work, saying you cannot attend. You can also request leave for the first few days or opt to work from home during a self-detox from alcohol.

How Much Does A Home Detox Cost?

We can provide the best value at home alcohol detox in the UK. The cost varies from around £1,500-3,000 depending on the treatment required and the length of the detox. These prices are based on the travel and staffing costs of the doctor and any medications prescribed. All of our programs are professional and have an excellent success rate. Our medical staff are expert addiction doctors and offer a bespoke experience.

Private Addiction Help

You might have looked to community addiction teams to help you with your drink problem but found that they have long waiting lists. You might even have looked at the other end of the market and found that private clinics or alcohol withdrawal rehab is out of your budget. 

If you prefer to stay at home alcohol rehab might not be your first choice. This can be for a number of reasons and fortunately, with a home detox in the UK, you have plenty of flexibility and a high standard of service. Private alcohol detox at home is unique in providing affordable private service in your home or a familiar environment. Our small and professional team will guide and support you daily throughout your treatment.
