If you’ve made your way to this page, then there’s a big chance that either you or a loved one are currently looking for a way out of addiction. This is great news. Why? It means that you are already taking the first step towards getting better.

As we’ll talk about in more detail, acknowledging the need for detox is the very first step to getting better. Without being aware of your relationship with substances like alcohol or opioids, you won’t be able to break out of the cycle of addiction.

Since you are looking for a way to get sober, we want to make sure you know all of the steps you need to take to finally be free from addiction. This is why we’ve come up with a list of seven steps that are needed to kickstart your recovery.

Step 1: Be Ready and Willing to Change

You can’t get better if you don’t want to get better. It makes sense on paper, but sometimes it can be hard to actually realize that you have an issue that you need to work on.

Here’s what you need to do:

  • Start by realizing that you need detox. Think about how your substance use affects your life and how your life would improve if you were sober.
  • Accept that detox is necessary for your health. You probably don’t need us to tell you this, but a quick Google search of “long-term effects of alcohol” or “long-term effects of opioid abuse” will show you the harsh reality of what could happen if you don’t get help.
  • You need to really want to start detox. This motivation will drive you through challenges.

Step 2: Build Your Support Network

This step is quite simple: surround yourself with supportive friends, family, or groups.

Why is this important?

A network of supportive individuals can give you the emotional strength that you will need during detox. Friends and family can encourage you and remind you of your reasons of getting sober.

Support groups can also be a valuable resource. Sharing your experiences with others on the same journey can be very empowering. There are even virtual options for anyone who would like to stay more private and interact with others from the comfort of their home.

Step 3: Consult Our Healthcare Experts

Whenever you’re ready for your life to take a turn for the better, the next step is to talk to a healthcare professional. Our experts at Detox Concierge will be able to understand your situation and create a detox plan that fits your needs and keeps you safe.

Why can’t you detox by yourself?

Detoxing by yourself is not a good idea when it comes to substances like alcohol or opioids. Unfortunately, there are quite a few withdrawal symptoms that can appear during your detox process. These can even get out of hand and become dangerous to your health and life.

With our expert team by your side, you don’t have to worry about any of that. We will be there to help you handle withdrawal symptoms, which can be tough and sometimes risky without medical help. We have the knowledge, expertise, medicine, and equipment needed to make sure you’re comfortable and safe.

We have helped countless individuals get sober, and we have a very good understanding of how we can get you there too. You will have our constant medical and moral support. A professional healthcare provider will be with you 24/7 while you’re detoxing.

Step 4: Create a Comfortable Detox Environment

When most people think about detox, their thoughts instantly go to a sterile, uncomfortable-looking hospital room. This is not the case when you are detoxing with Detox Concierge.

We come to your home, so you’ll be in a familiar, comfortable, and private environment. This will help you heal and recover without the added stress of being in an unfamiliar and less-than-comfortable inpatient environment.

To make sure your space is ready for detox, clear your home of any substances that you’re detoxing from. Keep everything as comfortable as possible.

Our experts can also give you more advice on how to prepare your space and how to keep your mind occupied while receiving our detox services.

Step 5: Follow a Structured Detox Plan

A detox plan is kind of like a GPS; it helps you get to your goal destination as efficiently and successfully as possible. In this case, sobriety and recovery are your destination.

What does a detox plan with Detox Concierge entail?

  • Our detox plans are tailored to your specific situation and needs.
  • In some cases, medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is very effective. It can help taper off substances like opioids safely and reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms.
  • We will be there with you 24/7. This helps us address any concerns or emergencies that may come up during your detox. Our plan will include discussions on how we can keep you as comfortable and safe as possible.

Step 6: Surrender to the Process

Once you have reached out to us and decided on doing our at home detox program, there is one more very simple yet important thing you’ll have to do: surrender to the process.

With the knowledge that you’re in good hands with us and that we will take care of you, you can let go of your worries and concerns related to detox. Sure, some feelings of anxiety or nervousness are normal, but you can work through them with things like meditation, breathing exercises, or journaling.

The most important thing is that you know you’re doing the right thing. You can leave all the planning to us.

Step 7: Develop a Strong Aftercare Plan

While recovery isn’t over after your detox, a good aftercare plan can make it easier to maintain sobriety for the years to come.

We will work with you and take your specific situation into account. We’ll provide you with strategies and advice on how you can stay on track and reach your goals of becoming sober after the detox ends.
