Our Detoxification treatment programme includes:
Full medical detoxification overseen by medical professionals in accordance with NHS Nice guidelines and regulated by the CQC
All ECR’s detoxification treatment programmes are overseen by a registered GP practice. ECR’s staff are trained and authorised to issue prescribed medication as well as carrying out regular checks to ensure the detoxification is as comfortable as possible. ECR’s residential houses are staffed 24/7 by our caring and dedicated support team.
If after your assignment your medical detoxification need falls outside our ability to safely care for you, our admissions team will refer you at no extra cost to a facility that is able safely care for you.
The full cost of your detox will be agreed with you before admission. However extra costs may occur if your medical needs go outside the initial agreed detox plan, i.e. extra medication required, extra trips to the Doctors for other illnesses, or hospital trips for other illnesses. Sometimes clients would like to see the private doctor for other issues or to discuss the possibility of reducing medication, these will incur further costs.

I came to ECR coming off methadone and heroin. I had a lot of fears coming into treatment, and the fear of detoxing was one of them, my past experiences with detoxes had been failure. Generally my detox at ECR went smoothly, only slight levels of discomfort in my head I had believed it was going to be hellish. How wrong I was! The support from staff & peers was a vital help as most had been through drug withdrawals and their loving support gave me the strength with ECR’s help I became free of substances for the first time in a very long time and continue to remain so.Jo
Before I came into ECR I was worried about detoxing more than anything else, the thought of withdrawal scared me the most. When I arrived I saw the doctor and was prescribed a medical detox which was to replace the drugs i was addicted to and help prevent any severe withdrawals. The detox period was a lot smoother than I expected and at any point I was uncomfortable or worried there was always staff there for me to talk to. The support from my peers and the groups helped greatly during this time and it was a relief to know I did not have to go through this alone, there was always someone else that had been through exactly the same as me.Carl
