ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The Clean Slate Clinic program is designed to help you detox from alcohol, safely from home.
Our clinic is led by Dr Chris Davis, a global leader in General Practitioner alcohol withdrawal management. Working under his guidance are a team of highly trained alcohol detox nurses who provide the care you need to successfully detox from alcohol at home.
The program includes three stages
Stage 1: Preparation
Our clients are allocated a dedicated nurse, who will be with them throughout the program. We send out a care package, including vitamins that need to be commenced prior to detox and work with individuals to prepare them for a safe and successful detox. Typically clients will have two nursing consultations and an appointment with our doctor during this phase, and it takes around two weeks.
Stage 2: Detox
We provide a medically supervised detox at home, including prescription of medications where required (typically valium) to minimize any withdrawal symptoms, so that the detox is comfortable and clients have the best chance of successfully completing detox. During this phase clients will see their dedicated nurse at least once daily.
Stage 3: Recovery
We stay with our clients post detox for a full-year, to provide support and encouragement for clients to continue to successfully meet their alcohol goals. (For some this is complete abstinence, for others moderation is an appropriate long-term goal). Clients will have a post-detox review with one of our doctors, to agree the plan. This may include prescription of anti-craving medication, to make it as easy as possible for clients to successfully meet their goals. From there, clients will have ongoing access to their dedicated nurse, including scheduled follow-up appointments weekly initially, then less frequently, depending on individual needs.

Prices are inclusive of GST. Tailored pricing plans are available on request, dependent on individual circumstances.
Our service is currently available privately and we hope to be able to extend publicly funded access to other patients in the future.
We offer pricing plans for detox and recovery to support with affordability - our monthly charges are typically lower than clients were previously spending on alcohol.
