Professionals Dedicated to Your Success

We Are With You Every Step Of The Way

You will be supported by our team which has many years of experience in detoxing clients from drugs and alcohol. We have extensive experience from having worked in multiple rehabs all around the country providing successful detox services to clients. Our psychologically trained team will liaise between you and your medical GP to get the right detox set up and specialised to your needs.

From our experience, the majority of NHS detox programmes are free but have the massive drawback of wait times. The GP has to refer you to your local detox centre and this can take weeks. For this reason, many clients come to us because they can get the support they need and the process started within 24 hours.

"Even in my first few sessions he helped me change my way of thinking"

Luke is really easy to talk to, I am currently having counselling with him and even in my first few sessions he helped me change my way of thinking and make some really positive changes in my life to ultimately make me happy.

- LEAH

"He is empathetic, knowledgeable and really makes the sessions fit you"

I was hesitant about therapy as a concept and questioned if it would benefit me at the start. Firstly, Luke is a great counsellor. He is empathetic, knowledgeable and really makes the sessions fit you. Counselling is not a magic wand where you’re suddenly ‘cured’, but much of a journey and Luke really supports you along the way. I would absolutely recommend Luke wholeheartedly.

- JAMES

"He listens intently and without prejudice"

If i could leave a 100 star review for Luke I would, he has been amazing from day 1. He listens intently and without prejudice, the skills he has taught me over the time I have worked with him will be with me for a lifetime and I will be forever thankful that I found him when I needed it the most. Thank you so much for everything.

Pros And Cons Of A Home Detox in London 

Pros

  • Comfort: Home detox allows you to undergo the detoxification process in the familiar and comfortable environment of your own home, which can reduce stress and anxiety associated with being in a new, clinical setting.
  • ​Privacy: Home detox offers a higher level of privacy compared to a rehab facility, allowing you to maintain discretion during your recovery process.
  • ​Flexibility: Home detox programs can be tailored to your individual needs and schedule, offering a more personalized approach to your recovery.
  • ​Cost-effective: Home detox is often more affordable than inpatient rehab, making it a more accessible option for many individuals.
  • ​Family support: Undergoing detox at home enables you to maintain close contact with family and friends, who can provide emotional support and encouragement during the process.

Cons

  • ​Lack of 24/7 medical supervision: Unlike inpatient rehab facilities, home detox does not provide around-the-clock medical care and supervision, which may be necessary for individuals with severe addiction or withdrawal symptoms.
  • ​Increased risk of relapse: Being in your home environment may expose you to triggers and temptations that can lead to relapse, whereas a rehab facility offers a controlled environment free from these distractions.
  • ​Limited access to resources: Home detox may not provide the same level of access to various therapies and treatments, such as group therapy, available at a rehab facility.
  • ​Less structured environment: Inpatient rehab facilities often follow a strict daily schedule, which can be beneficial for those who struggle with maintaining a structured routine during their recovery process.
  • ​Potential isolation: Although you may have support from family and friends during a home detox, you may not have access to the same peer support network that you would find in a rehab facility, which can be crucial for maintaining long-term sobriety.

STILL GOT QUESTIONS ABOUT A HOME DETOX?

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the signs that I need a home detox?

With most clients how and where you choose to undergo your detox is largely determined by your level of dependence. In mild cases, you will be able to complete a home detox as you will be experiencing mild symptoms of withdrawal. If your drug and alcohol consumptions are high (more than 20 units a day) or you have experienced strong withdrawal symptoms you can receive a home detox assisted by medication prescribed by your GP. This usually involves a tranquiliser called chlordiazepoxide which is usually used in these cases. However, if your dependence is critically high and you have severe withdrawal symptoms or have been previously hospitalised, you are likely to need specialised medical supervision and we can point you in the right direction for that.

What happens after the detox?

In 2012, a Johns Hopkins study found that patients who committed to continuing treatment after detox were ten times more likely to remain sober than people who left detox, who were 65 to 80 percent likely to have a relapse.
You can enroll onto counselling or our Alcohol Control program after you complete your detox to help continue your recovery journey.

What happens during a detox?

A detox consists of three phases:
1) The Crash:
Following a period of extensive drug or alcohol use you may experience a ‘crash’, with symptoms such as exhaustion, increased hunger, depression, anxiety. and irritation but these usually only last a few days.

2) Withdrawal: Following the crash, withdrawal symptoms can kick in as the detoxification process takes place. These symptoms include feeling lethargic, craving alcohol or your drug of choice, poor concentration, mood swings and irritability. They can last for up to 10 weeks.

3) Extinction: The final phase is extinction which can last for up to six months. This is where the drugs or alcohol are now completely removed from the body and the psychological work is undertaken. Towards the end of this stage, the low moods and cravings will start to extinguish.

How long does a detox take?

Our detox program lasts two weeks to give you time to get back on your feet, but here are some general timelines of how long you will experience the withdrawal symptoms of drugs or alcohol.

  • ​Alcohol: Withdrawal symptoms usually display within 6 to 25 hours after the last drink depending on how much is consumed. The symptoms can then peak within 36 to 72 hours and people can feel these effects for between 2 and 10 days.
  • ​Stimulants: Withdrawal effects from stimulants may be seen within 24 hours of the last use with some of the effects lasting up to 5 days.
  • ​Benzodiazepines: Short-acting benzos such as alprazolam (Xanax) usually start 1 to 2 days after the last dose was ingested. The withdrawals will gradually subside over the next 2 to 4 weeks. However, withdrawals from longer-acting benzos such as diazepam (Valium) can begin between 2 and 7 days after the last dose and may continue for 2 to 8 weeks.
  • ​Marijuana: Generally mild symptoms occur when withdrawing from marijuana. These usually start between 1 to 3 days after the last use and peak between 2 and 6 days. The symptoms will subside within 1 to 2 weeks of the last use.
  • ​Opioids: When detoxing from opioids the process can be extremely uncomfortable but does not come with the same risks as benzodiazepine or alcohol withdrawal. With opioids such as heroin, withdrawal symptoms typically occur within 8 to 24 hours after the last use and can last for 4 to 10 days.

Do my family get help during my detox?

We also offer support for family members who are supporting someone going through a home detox. Our trained team is on hand to provide you with the help and the support you need.

Is a home detox suitable for everyone?

A home detox may not be suitable for everyone. Factors such as the severity of addiction, the substance involved, and the individual's overall health play a crucial role in determining if a home detox is the right choice. It is essential to consult with a medical professional or addiction specialist to assess your specific situation and determine the most appropriate course of action.

What kind of support can I expect during my home detox?

During a home detox, you can expect to receive professional support from addiction specialists, including regular check-ins, guidance on managing withdrawal symptoms, and counseling. Some programs may also offer additional resources such as online support groups, educational materials, and tools to help you stay on track during your detox journey.

How can I prepare for my home detox?

To prepare for a home detox, you should first consult with a medical professional or addiction specialist to ensure it is safe and appropriate for you. Next, create a comfortable and supportive environment at home, free from potential triggers and distractions. Inform your family and friends about your detox plan and enlist their support. Finally, establish a daily routine and stock up on essential items such as healthy food, water, and any necessary medications.

What are the potential risks and complications of home detox?

Home detox carries potential risks and complications, including severe withdrawal symptoms, dehydration, relapse, and in extreme cases, life-threatening conditions such as seizures or delirium tremens. It is vital to consult with a medical professional before starting a home detox and to have a support system in place to monitor your progress and ensure your safety.

How do I know if my withdrawal symptoms are severe and require medical attention?

Severe withdrawal symptoms may include extreme agitation, hallucinations, seizures, fever, and rapid heartbeat. If you experience any of these symptoms or feel that your withdrawal symptoms are becoming unmanageable, seek immediate medical attention.

How can I manage cravings during and after my home detox?

Managing cravings during and after home detox can be challenging but achievable through various strategies such as distraction, mindfulness techniques, engaging in healthy activities, seeking support from friends or family, and attending counseling or support group sessions. Remember that cravings are temporary and will subside over time.

What are the long-term effects of completing a home detox program?

Completing a home detox program can lead to numerous long-term benefits, such as improved physical and mental health, better relationships with family and friends, increased productivity, and a greater sense of self-worth and accomplishment. However, it is essential to follow up with ongoing support, counseling, or recovery programs to maintain sobriety and prevent relapse.

A Prerequisite For Entering Our Program

We only take on clients for this program as a prequel to starting counselling or our recovery program. This is because If you don’t address the underlying issues you will likely relapse. It is important to know that withdrawing from drugs or alcohol is only the first step in the recovery process and a lot of work must be done on the psychological dependence.

My Counsellor’s Ethical Guarantee's

Our counselling programme is covered by two guarantees and they are both valid at the same time. The first one is a 7-Day money-back guarantee to try the programme out and see if it is a good fit.

On top of that, you also get a 60-Day money-back guarantee – that one covers you if you saw no value after putting in the work and completing the programme.

BOTTOM LINE: No matter what you have tried in the past, this is the first and last addiction programme you will ever need or you get your money back.

"It has been the best thing I could have ever done"

I joint Lisa inside addiction due to binge drinking and not knowing when to stop drinking once I start. I was in a low place when Luke contacted me and I signed up for the alcohol control program and 1 to 1 sessions with Luke. It has been the best thing I could have ever done, I’m now 6 weeks sober and have a complete different outlook on life. Luke has been absolutely amazing! He has gave me many techniques, one of which has taught me how to control intrusive thoughts which I struggled with. Since talking to Luke everyone has seen such a positive effect on me. I cannot recommend him enough, we’ve spoke about a lot of deep stuff but also laughed at past experiences. The program has shown me my triggers and how to deal with them. Highly recommended!

- LUKE

"Luke gave me the support I needed"

Luke gave me the support I needed to make some big changes in my life. The program he provided is comprehensive, and it all links together meaningfully to provide a really effective course. If you are ready and willing to make change for the better, this course provides a very strong base of support, focus and motivation. Strongly recommended.

- PAUL

"I have not had a drink in 4 months"

Luke has been amazing. He was exactly what I was looking for in a therapist, someone that I could talk openly with and on the same level. Sometimes we would work through exercises and other times we would just chat about what was going on. I have not had a drink in 4 months and with a bit of hard work from myself and awesome support from Luke here's to the next 4 and many more after :-)
