Tried and tested approach
We have successfully supported over 200 clients through withdrawal – 95% of those who give us feedback rate the service as excellent.
95% of clients agree or strongly agree that they find the technology easy to use.
Our 3 stage process is simple and effective.
Stage 1: Preparation and Assessment
We ensure that you are psychologically, socially and physically prepared for detox success post withdrawal.
You will be appointed a dedicated specialist nurse, and given a care package to begin the program. In preparation for detox, we will work with you to set your goals and deeply understand what is triggering your use, so that we can begin to put in place the changes you’ll need for long-term success.’
Stage 2: Detox
In this stage, we support you through a medically supervised detox at home, that patients would typically go through in a hospital or outpatient clinic.
We will check in with you daily to ensure you are safe and comfortable, and make sure we adjust your medication if required.
Stage 3: Aftercare
Over the remainder of the year, your dedicated nurse will continue to support you, initially through weekly follow-up and then less frequently as your confidence grows.
We will develop a tailored post-detox plan, with the eventual goal of giving you the confidence to manage your alcohol use on your own.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the price of the program?Our service is currently available privately for all clients, and we have funded places available in Western New South Wales, Western Queensland, Central & Eastern and Northern Sydney, as well as for any BUPA members with full psychiatric cover. We hope to be able to extend funded access to other patients in the future. The total cost of the program is $3,500, or we offer a twelve-month pricing plan of $320 per month to spread costs out over 12 months - this is typically significantly less than what clients were previously spending each month on alcohol. Bespoke pricing plans available on request.
Is the program covered by Medicare?Unfortunately no, not at this time.
I stopped drinking or went through a detox elsewhere. Can I still go through the program?Unfortunately, not at this time. We are primarily a detox service and at this stage we don't offer tailored after-care support.
Can I skip Phase 1 (Preparation) and start detox right away?Assessment and preparation are a very important part of the program, where we ensure an individual is physically and psychologically ready for detox. This is to ensure safety for each client. The changing of relationship with alcohol does start with a period of mindful drinking, which allows us to identify any triggers that you may have.
Do I need to tell anyone?We are a confidential service and will not share information with anyone without consent (except where required by law). However, we encourage every client to have a support person for safety and support, which will be discussed in the first appointment by the nurse. Ideally, a GP is also involved to ensure the continuity of care post-detox.
