Most drug and all alcohol addictions require a phase of detoxification at the start of the rehabilitation process.
At Villa Paradiso we strongly believe this is a vital and safe way to begin your journey into recovery.
This stage of detox is designed to remove all traces of drugs and alcohol from the body. In some cases, maintenance medication may be given to ease the withdrawal symptoms associated with certain drugs, including cocaine, prescription drugs and heroin
The severity of the Detox Process varies according to:
- The individual’s unique body composition and metabolism.
- The particular drug and dosage that was being used.
- How long the drug has been taken.
- If there are any other addictions involved.
Detoxification at Villa Paradiso is a safe process under experienced medical supervision with our specialist medical team led by our Doctor Dr Hallin.
Since detox for certain individuals and substances can be potentially very severe — and in some cases, deadly — it’s not advised for individuals to detox on their own at home.
