Pierpoint alcohol home detox program
Home Alcohol Detox – START TODAY

The UK’s most supported home alcohol detox program. There are 4 easy steps to our detox program

  1. First Stage We need to do a telephone assessment with the client. This is to make sure it is safe for the client to have an alcohol home detox. The clients safety is paramount.
  2. Second Stage is to have a zoom meeting with the client, and the person staying with the client during their detox. The person staying with the client will become the clients supervisor.
  3. Third Stage is for us to transfer the clients medication from our medical centre to the clients local chemist. The medication will need to be collected by the supervisor and not the client for obvious reasons.
  4. Forth Stage is to start the detox. This happens when the client and the supervisor are both ready to start.

Starting your home alcohol detox

You can start your alcohol home detox today, or whenever you choose. You have completed the four steps. You are ready to start your detox. All you do now is call our nurse, (you will have the number for as he has done all the assessments etc), and you should have a good relationship with our nurse by now. And start your detox.

Nurse and supervisor 

Our nurse will tell the supervisor how much medication to give the client. This is the start of the clients alcohol home detox. Our detox nurse will now call the supervisor a minimum of four times day. This is medication times. You can also call us or our detox nurse as often as you wish, if you have any worries or concerns. (Which you won’t have)

How long does a detox last

Over a period of between 10 to 14 days depending on the clients addiction. Our detox nurse will slowly reduced the medication until the client is completely detoxed from alcohol. If you want to get your detox finished in a shorter time. We will work with you and get it completed on 5 or 7 days. This will largely depend on how much alcohol is being consumed by the client. The other option is to start your alcohol home detox on a Friday evening. So by the time Monday comes around, you are on your third day.  This method is better for client who cannot take too much time off work. Or clients who’s children maybe away for the week. Whatever you want to do, we will work with you. I know you may have lots of other questions, so please do not hesitate to contact us. We can help you. Call: 07811 606 606


(Disclaimer- All contact with our nurses will be via Zoom etc and not home visits)

We also offer fully residential drug and alcohol detox and rehab centres

Do I need a home alcohol detox

You may want to consider a detox if your alcohol consumption has gone up to a level where you are not happy. This maybe 2 bottles of wine a day, or half a bottle of spirts a day. You defiantly need a detox if your drinking has got to a stage where you cannot go through a day without a drink. This maybe as little as 1 or 2 bottles of wine a day, or quarter of a bottle of sprits a day. You do not need a detox if you are drinking a glass of wine a day. I think at the end of the day, the client knows when they need help. If you are reading this, then I would imagine you are at a stage where you need help. 

Will my doctor, or work know I am having a detox

No. Nobody apart from us, and you supervisor will know. The beauty of going private is. Everything is totally confidential. We do not share or discuss your information with anyone. 

How successful is an alcohol home detox

We have been doing alcohol home detoxes for over 10 years, and I have only ever known two which haven’t worked. These where both due to bereavements issues. I believe the reason it is so successful is unlike residential rehab centres (which are very good) where you have your treatment, and then come home. With an alcohol home detox, you are at home. So there is no feeling or worry about going back to your real life, old life etc. You are already there. There is no anxiety about going home. This too many clients is a big factor. 

Why does it work

I believe it works because the client has support form family and friends. Plus once the client has finished their detox, there is no disruption of having to go home and face their old live. This is because they are already at home. There is obviously advantages to coming into one of our residential rehab centres including a longer stay etc. But an alcohol home detox is a very affordable way to help a friend or family member break their addiction. 

What is it like after having an alcohol home detox

I can only talk through my own experiences. But for me, it was like coming out of a cloud of chaos. I was at the stage where I felt like “stop the world, I want to get off!” Everything while in my drinking stages was absolute chaos. But as soon as I was detoxed, it was like coming out of a cloud of chaos. All of a sudden things became clear. I could hear things properly, smell things properly, taste things properly. Understand things again. My whole life changed. I could almost see the cloud of chaos behind me spinning around. I was free from addiction. I was no longer a slave to alcohol. I didn’t have a headache, I didn’t have an upset stomach. I didn’t wake up with that taste in the morning, which tasted like I had eaten a dead dog! I didn’t feel sick. The change was just incredible. I could also drive my car again. How mad is that?

Do you know, the stupid part of all this was, “I should have done this years ago. Madness!”

Alcoholism is when a person becomes physically dependant of alcohol, and if they do not drink, they get the shakes. This is known as Delirium Tremens (DT’s) due to their body going through withdrawal. These symptoms can be quite strong depending on the level of withdrawal. This can also be very dangerous for the client who is suffering withdrawal, and can led to seizures. In extreme cases this can be fatal. Most people who have addiction to alcohol tend to carry on drinking to relieve withdrawal. This will only work for so long until they become very ill. The saddest part of all is, to detox from alcohol is painless, comfortable and easy. With the medication we give you, you will not even want a drink while being detoxed. Talk to our team about how we can help you. 

Symptoms of withdrawal

There are several symptoms of withdrawal from alcohol which include fast or irregular heart beat, sickness, shakes and confusion. The only way to stop these from happening is to keep drinking, or with medical assistance. Not advisable, or have a detox wether residential or a home detox. 

Alcohol addiction is a bigger problem now a days

Sadly alcohol addiction is on the increase. This is due to longer opening times in the shops. Cheaper alcohol than ever before. This is a growing concert, and not just in the United Kingdom. It is now a worldwide issue which needs addressing.
