Programmes

Detox Treatment

Detox Treatment is provided at our Auckland facility. Based on the circumstances and severity of your drug or alcohol addiction, we can assist you to make a decision about your treatment options. Our Doctor will undertake the medical assessment to determine the exact course of your detox programme. Working with the doctor and our staff will ensure your withdrawal symptoms are closely monitored and adjusted when necessary, making the process easier for you. The detox plan will provide a safe and comfortable withdrawal process. With alcohol and certain prescription drugs, stopping their use without being supervised can be dangerous and potentially life threatening. While in treatment you will receive individual and group counseling with our A.O.D Clinician, where you will be treated on the emotional parts of your addiction. This offers you further insight into your disease and guides you into a full recovery.
