Detox

Make the first step toward recovery, and we’ll be there to provide the support and reassurance you need at Moving Forward.

​The first day

The first 24 hours of your addiction treatment are vital first steps towards recovery. During the rehab admission process, you might experience anxiety, fear remorse and regret. You may even feel uneasy since the Moving Forward is a new and unfamiliar environment. These feelings are perfectly normal and our caring staff will help and assist you through this process. Our centre is small and has a family like atmosphere, so you will quickly feel at ease.

24/7 medically monitored detox services

​Medically monitored detoxification from alcohol or detox is the first step on the road to recovery. Our team will deliver a bespoke detox plan according to your general health and the level of your addiction. This will enable your mind and body to go through withdrawal as safely and as comfortably as possible.

You will be seen by our specialist doctor who will assess your needs, this may include blood tests and an ECG to ensure your health needs are met. If deemed appropriated and prescribed by our doctor medications will be prescribed to reduce the symptoms of withdrawal.

Throughout detox you will be regularly monitored and be under 24-hour medical supervision to ensure your safety. Within our detox monitoring protocol your physical and vital observations will be measured and recorded at specific measured intervals appropriate to your health needs. We also operated a ‘supportive care protocol’ to ensure you are made as comfortable as possible, your needs are met and are supported throughout your detox. Detox can typically take between 4-10 days to complete safely.

Why detox is essential

When you are addicted your body becomes so dependent on that substance that when you stop taking it you experience severe, sometimes dangerous withdrawal symptoms. Withdrawal symptoms can be physical, mental and emotional and without proper treatment people sometimes return to that substance to ease these symptoms. Medically monitored detox helps alleviate these harsh symptoms and enables people to go through withdrawal safety and in relative comfort.

Typical drug and alcohol withdrawal symptoms include:

  • Fever
  • Diarrhoea
  • Insomnia and vivid dreams/nightmares
  • Nausea
  • Anxiety and Panic
  • Hallucinations-visual, tactile and auditory
  • Cold sweats
  • Vomiting

Withdrawal from alcohol and drugs can cause life-threatening symptoms like heart attacks or strokes if not carefully observed and cared for by medical professionals.

Medically monitored detoxification from alcohol and other drugs helps reduce the severity of your withdrawal symptoms. Our qualified staff will monitor your progress, so you receive instant medical care in case of an emergency, safeguarding you from the harmful symptoms of withdrawal.
