Dealing with addiction is very difficult. Many people are reluctant to address their addiction and detox from alcohol, opioids, and benzodiazepines because they perceive a significant inconvenience in going away to a program. These people are usually highly successful in their chosen professions and have a tremendous incentive to get clean and sober.
Now there is another option that allows you to detox in the comfort and privacy of your own home or hotel in New York City. In a city where everything delivers, now drug and alcohol detox solutions are available for delivery as well. The service is provided discretely and conveniently under the supervision of highly trained professionals.
Private Home Detox is the medical management of withdrawal symptoms associated with alcohol, opiates, and benzodiazepine (Xanax, Valium, Ativan) dependence in the comfort of one’s home. This is the first step in Medication Assisted Treatment for addiction. Moderate to severe medical detoxification requires medication management and close medical supervision to minimize or eliminate the risk of medical complications. This service of private addiction treatment is exclusively for the high-end client who prefers privacy and convenience. It may include executive men and executive women, professional athletes, celebrities, and everyday people that feel they are ready to get well.
Where to begin
The first step in recovery is to acknowledge a problem. The second step is to do something about it. The specifics of subsequent steps differ for everyone. Addiction has a notoriously high relapse rate, and often this is due to the choices made early on in the process. Even so given the critical nature of addiction and detox, this is not something that someone should do on their own or with inexperienced clinicians.
How does it work?
During a home detox, Dr. Raymond Zakhari will determine if home detox is safe for your situation. The visit includes a complete history and physical exam with particular attention to your substance use disorder as well as any other medical problems you happen to have concurrently. If your condition is deemed safe for the Manhattan home detox, then we will proceed.
A Registered Nurse will be assigned to care for you and coordinate with the nurse practitioner throughout the process. Further enhancing the supervision is the use of telehealth services to ensure you are progressing safely. The Registered Nurse will remain with the patient as long as is necessary for them to feel safe and prepared to start the next steps. The home detox nurse will observe you for triggers and cues that may cause a relapse, and advise you about potential changes in your environment to sustain recovery.
An Ideal solution
The Manhattan home detox may be the ideal option for sobriety for the Midtown executive or the Wall Street lawyer. Above all the service provides compassionate care, confidential, and convenient care. Perhaps you are a high-profile celebrity or involved in public life and cannot leave the city or maybe you are a stay-at-home parent who cannot leave your children. Manhattan Home Detox is the solution for you.
