As Clinic Les Alpes is a fully licensed medical facility, all clinical needs of our patients can be attended to in house, without requiring disruptive visits to a local hospital for detoxification and medical checks.
Detoxification (detox) is a necessary but insufficient part of the process known as withdrawal, the first stage of recovery. Withdrawal is both physical and psychological and these processes begin as soon as you make the choice to enter treatment.
Clinic Les Alpes has the expertise and resources to help you detoxify from substances of dependence, whether being consumed singly or in combination, as safely and as quickly as possible. The detox suites are specially designed to combine comfort, safety and the highest standards of medical care. Discreetly situated close to the nurse’s station for ease of access, they enjoy their own sitting room and exhilarating views towards Lake Geneva.
Patients suffering with cravings are helped with medication to make the process as painless and effective as possible.
The only question will be whether our medical team considers your level of intoxication or physical or mental complications pose a risk to you safely commencing detoxification at Clinic Les Alpes. In this unlikely case, a temporary referral may be made to a suitable hospital with which we have an agreement. Should this be required every measure possible will be taken to preserve confidentiality.
Engaging with recovery therapies doesn’t have to wait until detox is completed. In fact, we encourage you to participate in these therapies as soon as medically passed fit to do so. It can even help the detoxification process to be engaged in other therapeutic and leisure activities.
