** What is Detox 5? **
Detox 5 is a 5-day medically supervised residential detoxification
programme that treats people who have an addiction to heroin and other
opiate based drugs including methadone and codeine based painkillers.
We use light sedation, allowing many people to sleep for the first few
days of the process. This is followed by naltrexone, the opiate-blocker,
for a recommended 12 months; this is available by way of our implant
service, or through daily oral medication prescribed by your GP.
*Who is Detox 5 for?*
The detoxification process is one small but vital step in an abstinence
based recovery focused pathway. Our success rate is over 97%, i.e. drug
free on day 5, which compares very favourably with longer reducing
detoxification programs that many service users find hard to complete.
*Factors that influence a successful detox*
*Motivation / readiness*
Detox 5 is an abstinence based, recovery focused, detoxification programme.
As with any intervention, readiness and motivation to engage with the
process and willingness to participate fully to make it work is highly
important. If you want to come through Detox 5 you must be ready
