Heroin Medical Detox?
During the medical detox process, patients are prescribed an approved medication to manage their symptoms of heroin withdrawal. The process is tailored to the individual to negate the effects of fitting, vomiting, tremors etc.… until the client is substance-free. The treatment is clinically proven to be the safest way to detox, taking between 7-14 days to complete, with 24/7 care and support being provided throughout.
If detox is attempted alone the following symptoms are common:
Aches & pains in muscles & bones
Agitation and nervousness
Fever and hot and cold sweats
Inability to keep still
Insomnia and lethargy
Loss of appetite, vomiting, diarrhoea
Hallucinations & delirium
High blood pressure, rapid heart rate
We strongly recommend a minimum of 28 days of rehabilitation. In this time, you will be treated physically, mentally and emotionally. Our specialist programmes include:
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
Fitness and Massage
Yoga & Meditation
Music & Art therapy
Mindfulness and Acupuncture
Relapse Prevention Techniques
Free Lifelong Aftercare Programme
We understand that leaving rehab and having to face the reality of day-to-day life can be an extremely daunting thought. While you may be determined to continue living a clean and sober life, external triggers and temptations exist and dealing with these alone can leave you feeling isolated. To support you during this vital time, we have created a two-tier approach to long-term sobriety.
Short-term: we provide one year’s worth of free aftercare support sessions every week in the rehab you attended (or nearest clinic). Here you will engage with a group based therapeutic approach, with loved ones in attendance (if you so wish) but with the opportunity to speak with a counsellor one-to-one.
Long-term: we have built the UK’s first recovery network for all those who have attended a UKAT treatment facility. This lifelong recovery network is called Alumni – a gateway to lifelong sober companionship. Events include Christmas parties, dinners, adventure days out and, of course, summer BBQs. This is the future of permanent recovery, and we are proud to be the first rehab family in the UK to offer it. Many people fear that putting down the drugs means losing their social life. At UKAT we say it’s only just begun! Please call to hear more about rehab, recovery and lifelong happiness.
