It has been said the recovery journey from addiction is a return from far and distant land. If this is true then the detox part of recovery is the ride to the airport or train station. The Detox is an integral part of the overall journey; it is a method of moving on from the physical need and allows the patient to stop using alcohol safely and comfortably.

Abstain Home detoxification

An alcohol detoxification is needed when someone is drinking and experiencing physical withdrawals and they are unable to stop consuming alcohol. They may require medication to prevent the withdrawal symptoms and more importantly to prevent seizures and delirium tremens. When a person is drinking in a harmful way they experience withdrawal symptoms such as shakes, sweats and varying levels of anxiety. All these symptoms are usually alleviated by alcohol. Excessive shaking and anxiety may lead to more dangerous symptoms such as seizures and delirium tremens if they were to stop drinking abruptly. To avoid this from happening an individual will require medication; this may be prescribed for 7 to 10 days and be carefully monitored by the nurse and the doctor..

See The Results and Feel the difference

It is important to note that this medication does not stop the individual from drinking but does help to prevent the withdrawal symptom described above. But many believe that the detox is the whole trip and because of this misconception many relapse, often within a few days or weeks of the detoxification. Because of this well documented and researched fact, Abstain will spend time with our clients prior to the detox explaining the full recovery journey in detail Abstain will cover the importance of finishing the full package and the benefits of completing each part of the recovery journey. Our staff will work with you to help you understand what you can expect from the detox portion of your treatment package and the significance of a detailed relapse prevention and aftercare plan. Abstain will map out your detox with you. You may need to take some time off work or plan to have someone stay with you for a few days. This will all be planned and arranged before your detox starts so as to give you the safest and best outcome..

The Importance of Aftercare and Relapse Prevention in Recovery

FAMILY SERVICES

Abstain understand how important the role played by the family is in a client's recovery. There are two key roles that have to be addressed:

The first is the role of family members can play in helping to keep the client in recovery. It is about educating the family around the do's and don'ts of recovery. This is important in the early recovery period due to the changes in the family dynamic that occur when a person initially stops drinking. The individual who is in recovery is going through many changes and these changes impact on the family. Whilst the individual was drinking the family have adapted and changed. Initially those close to the problem drinker tend to complain and confront the individual in the hope that he will change. But when this fails, families tend to settle into new routines and work around the drinker. When the individual stops drinking the family no longer know where they fit into the new dynamic and can without knowing sabotage the recovery. Abstain can work with the individual and their family to help avoid some of the common problems that these changes bring.

The second key area of work that Abstain can offer the family and friends of their clients is in working towards taking care of the family members individual needs, by keeping themselves safe and educating them towards developing an understanding of what to expect and of what they have control over. Abstain facilitate this by applying family therapies like the COMMUNITY REINFORCEMENT AND FAMILY TRAINING (C.R.A.F.T.) philosophy. Abstain can also offer couples therapy in hope of helping the clients to maintain relationships and develop reasons for maintaining the changes and new behaviours.
