Our clients receive unparalleled medical attention from our leading, experienced and confidential medical teams.
We, at Achilles, recognise that some clients will require thorough medical, psychiatric and psychological evaluations in order for us to carefully create the best care plan for effective treatment.
Withdrawal from alcohol and other drugs can be dangerous and even life-threatening without careful supervision. Moreover, there may be other health risks and problems involved which would need to be taken into full consideration whilst detoxing. Sometimes there may be a need to liaise with other medical professionals who have been following individuals on specific cases, especially those who are suffering from chronic pain, therefore it is important that any recommendations for a treatment plan cover all aspects concerned for the total well-being of that individual.
During the detoxification process, a range of medications can be selected from to start of a gentle recovery by minimising any discomfort. Our medical team will assess each individual separately to figure out which medications would best suit them to ensure maximum effectiveness. In general, medically assisted detoxification process is only the first stage of addiction treatment and by itself does not contribute to a long-term change of addictive behaviours and tendencies. Effective treatment plans need to assess the whole person, taking into account all their physical and mental needs. This is why Achilles primarily focuses on providing a clinically integrated and collaborative care.
Below are some of the range of medical treatments that is offered within the Achilles programme.
- Medical Attention
- Blood/Urine Analysis
- Blood Chemistry
- fMRI – Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging
The Achilles team has long standing relationships with medical experts and works closely with them to ensure that recovery covers all aspects of an individual’s life and that common triggers that may lead to relapses are eliminated all together.
