Detoxification from drugs and alcohol is a medically managed process and is the very first stage of residential rehab treatment here at Smarmore Castle Private Clinic, Ireland. We remove all traces of drugs and alcohol from the body and treat withdrawal symptoms while ensuring maximum comfort and safety for our patients.
A Consultant Psychiatrist will prescribe a personalised detoxification plan, which is agreed with the patient.
Supportive & Effective Drug & Alcohol Detox
The detox policies and practice at Smarmore Castle are based on a well established detox programme that ensures that detox is managed by medical professionals, and as comfortable as possible.
We provide 24/7 round-the-clock medical care, support and encouragement because we understand that this can be a daunting time for our patients. All patients receive medical care as an inpatient at Smarmore Castle; we don’t offer outpatient treatment.
All patients are closely monitored throughout the process of detoxification, easing withdrawal symptoms and reviewing their condition several times a day. A specialist doctor is always on-site or on-call in case of an emergency, and our experienced nursing staff are always at hand.
Detox is the First Step
Detoxification is the just first step in a much longer process towards recovery from drug or alcohol addiction, and will not curb the compulsion to drink, use drugs or gamble. A combination of individual psychotherapy, group therapy, specialist therapies, educational lectures and complementary therapies, is necessary to see patients through to a full recovery.
