Are Home Detoxes Safe?
UK Detox are able to provide home detoxes anywhere in the UK, that are conducted by qualified, registered, and experienced professionals.
If you are thinking about doing a home detox, it is important to assess if you are suitable. Certain drugs and especially alcohol can be very dangerous to detox from. Withdrawal symptoms can be life-threatening if a home detox is not managed correctly. This is why it is so important that a qualified professional is sourced to carry the detox out.
Can I Buy an Alcohol and Drug Detox Online?
This is something that we would advise against. Self-detoxing from alcohol or drugs where there is dependency is very dangerous. Buying an alcohol detox or drug detox online, can, and often does, end in disaster.
Those that attempt a home detox through buying controlled drugs, often end up with a secondary addiction or in the hospital as a result of not being able to manage their own detox withdrawal symptoms.
Buying non-prescribed controlled drugs is illegal; it is dangerous for so many reasons. You never really know what you are getting when you buy prescription class drugs from the internet. You run the risk of receiving a cheap counterfeit medication that is unapproved and could put your life at risk
How Long Does A Home Detox Take?
How long a home detox takes depends on a number of critical factors that are taken into consideration during a pre-detox assessment. A home detox is no quicker than a detox in a rehab, if anything because you are not in the medically supported environment of a detox clinic, it should take longer in order to reduce the risk of anything going wrong.
Benefits of A Home Detox
There are some benefits to undergoing a detox at home as opposed to a registered drug and alcohol clinic. However, on the whole, a rehab centre is a far safer and more effective option and there is little difference in cost.
Benefits of a Home Detox include:
- You are able to stay in the comfort of your own home
- You are able to stay around family and friends
- A professional will control the dispensing of the detox medication for you
- The home detox medication will be approved and regulated
