The OAD Clinic
Solution for a Fresh Start
Home Detox is a process of quitting alcohol or drugs in one's own home, gradually reducing its consumption, and managing withdrawal symptoms.
A Home Detox has advantages such as
Convenience: A home detox allows you to detox in the
comfort of your own home, without the need to travel or stay
at a detox centre.
Cost-effectiveness: A home detox is typically less expensive
than an inpatient detox.
Privacy: A home detox offers greater privacy than a professional detox programme, allowing you to detox in a familiar and comfortable environment.
Flexibility: A home detox allows you to detox at your own pace, on your own schedule, and for as long as you feel comfortable.
Customization: A home detox can be tailored to your specific needs and preferences, allowing you to focus on the areas of your health that you want to improve.
However, it may not be recommended for everyone and close medical supervision may be necessary for some individuals with severe withdrawal symptoms or health problems.

Conditions for a safe home detox
Conditions for a home detox can vary based on factors such as:
duration and severity of alcohol use,
co-occurring medical or mental health conditions,
type of alcohol consumed,
previous detox experiences,
age and overall health.
Professional medical supervision is often necessary to ensure a safe and effective detox and to manage withdrawal symptoms, which can be severe and potentially life-threatening in some cases.
Alcohol detoxification and withdrawal symptoms management
If you're dependent on alcohol to function and you don't know how to stop drinking, it's recommended you seek medical advice to manage your withdrawal. In mild cases, you should be able to reduce or stop drinking at home without the use of medication as your withdrawal symptoms should also be mild. However, if your dependency is severe, inpatient treatment may be needed. This is because the withdrawal symptoms will also be severe and are likely to need specialist treatment.
