Detoxification is a very crucial starting point to treatment. It is the removal of all substances and toxins from the patient who is acutely intoxicated and/or dependent on substances of abuse. Drug detox treatment seeks to minimize the physical harm of the substance taken. At Solace Asia – Alcohol detox center, we follow a thorough and scientifically proven method for the detoxification of our new intakes.
These rooms come with the following facilities:
Patients coming for treatment at Solace Asia will firstly be put through a detox process conducted at our detox and psychiatric care unit. The first of its kind in Malaysia, a private and premier detox and medical unit, Solace Asia in partnership with Eve Psychosocial Rehabilitation offers medical and psychiatric treatment around the clock with a multidisciplinary team of psychiatric and dependency treatment experts. This is to ensure that our clients get the best drug detox and medical treatment with tests necessary for their physical well-being prior to entering our rehabilitation facility.
TIP45or Treatment Improvement Protocol 45 series is published by the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) and Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to provide clinicians with up-to-date information as well as expand on issues commonly encountered in the delivery of detoxification services.
The multidisciplinary team of experts lead by Dato’ Dr Andrew Mohanraj, a premier in the field of mental health globally while being a consultant with WHO, will ensure patients are evaluated and stabilized prior to commencing the next phase of psychosocial treatment for the addiction. The team will ensure all aspects prescribed by this internationally recognized detoxification protocol is followed according to the established guidelines.
At Solace Asia’s private alcohol and drug detox facility, one will not experience the shortcomings faced by simply depending on an on-site detoxification unit. There are rehabilitation centers having on-site detoxification facilities. This is dangerous and unethical, as detoxification is not just about the removal of the toxins from a patients’bodily system. It is also about ensuring the patients experience the withdrawal symptoms in a safe and comfortable way. Very often psychotic symptoms appear as a result of withdrawals, and managing them requires very specific expertise and care. For example, we had a client who had kidney problems, which we found out during the detox. He went for testing and the results propelled immediate action to treat his kidneys. If that were to be done on-site, the wait to the hospital alone; would jeopardize the patient’s life as imminent action is required. At Solace Asia alcohol detox center you can rest assure that our clients’ overall physical well-being is taken care of at our private psychiatric and alcohol detox facility.
