Midlands Home Detox
If you want to break free from an alcohol or drug addiction, but residential rehabilitation is not an option, you could benefit from the Midlands Home Detox Programme by the Steps drug and alcohol support service. Those in the Midlands who are struggling with addiction can get confidential advice and support from our advisors, who as former addicts themselves are well equipped with the knowledge and wisdom needed to guide you through your home detox.
Throughout the Midlands, we are available to be contacted to construct an individual medical home detox programme for you or your loved one. Get personalised help and support which will help you beat your addiction. Take the first steps today with the Steps Midlands Home Detox Programme.
Home Detox Plans
When someone becomes physically dependant on drugs and/or alcohol they will need a detox in order to stop. A lot of addicts will try to detox themselves because they can’t afford a residential detox programme, but this can be both dangerous and fatal.
Detoxification needs to be conducted under medical supervision in order for it to be safe and comfortable. There can be some nasty side effects to self withdrawal such as getting the shakes, vomiting, anxiety, sweating, agitation and insomnia. Often, an addict will relapse and take drugs or drink, just to be free of the terrible symptoms of withdrawal. However, medication is available to ease these symptoms.
Your medication plan will be worked out by our medical professionals, and will be based on your own circumstances and needs. While you are on medication to treat your withdrawal symptoms, it is important that you do not drink or take drugs. You run the risk of becoming ill, or overdosing, if you do not stick to your prescribed medication schedule and dose.
Home Detox Programmes for Drugs and Alcohol
We would always suggest that you seek medical help when thinking about detoxing. The Midlands home detox means that you can get on with your life whilst in recovery; you will still be able to work and be part of your family.
The idea of residential rehab is often an obstacle to recovery for addicts. Being away from your loved ones, in a facility that is often many miles from home, can be extremely distressing. Plus, residential programmes are often very expensive as they cover the cost of accommodation, meals and 24hr services. For someone going through financial hardship due to addiction, the cost of rehab can be prohibitive.
People with addictions may have families to look after, or commitments at work, which mean they cannot be away for long. Residential programmes can take several weeks to complete, which is not suitable for everyone. Home detox means that you stay in your own home while you go through addiction treatment, so that treatment is affordable, convenient - and more likely to be successful.
We do recommend that you take some time off at the start of your Midlands home detox, and that you enlist the support of a friend or relative to help with care and home tasks. Once you start to feel better and have got through the initial withdrawal, you can get back to work and resume your other responsibilities too.

When you get in touch with the Steps Home Detox network in the Midlands, we arrange a consultation with a medical professional. You will be prescribed any necessary medications to assist with your home detox, and given helpful advice about managing symptoms and resisting temptation. During the withdrawal stage, you will also have a daily appointment with a trained drug and alcohol counsellor.
Our team have experienced addiction themselves, and are now in recovery. They are proof that there is life after addiction, and that addicts can return to a normal, productive life filled with healthy habits. Through their own experience, they are well placed to offer help and advice about all aspects of addiction control.
Once the withdrawal phase is complete and your body is free from alcohol or drugs, we move on to providing targeted support in the form of counselling and therapy. This helps you to understand your addiction, and the causes of it, so you can recognise what makes you drink or take drugs. Once you understand what drives your addiction, you can start to regain control over it.
We also provide a Relapse Prevention Programme, available for anyone who is struggling with their addiction or who is afraid they may slip once their treatment ends. Weekly prevention packages are available for as long as you need them, and urgent appointments can be arranged where required.
