What Is a Drug and Alcohol Detox Clinic?
A drug and alcohol detox clinic is different from a drug and alcohol treatment centre such as House of Hope.
A detox clinic is a medical facility, staffed by doctors and nurses who are specially trained to manage withdrawal symptoms.
House of Hope Is Not a Medical Drug and Alcohol Detox Clinic
We provide drug and alcohol rehabilitation.
Distinguishing between a detox clinic and a rehabilitation centre is important as a detox clinic is not the final step on the path to sobriety. Statistics have shown that patients who just attend a detox clinic are highly likely to relapse. Whereas, combining a stay at a detox clinic with entry into a rehabilitation programme is essential for a successful long-term recovery.

Drug Detox & Alcohol Detox – House of Hope Difference
The programmes at House of Hope operate with the help of many former addicts who believe in the importance of community. They volunteer their time and bravely share their personal experience of the journey to recovery.
They are volunteering because they have been through drug and alcohol addiction themselves, they know its pains, and they want to help bring about change. House of Hope is not run by the state or by a church, but by people who believe in the power of community, a holistic approach, and the 12-step tradition.
Not all patients require a detox clinic
- Has a physical dependency
- Would experience significant discomfort with unassisted withdrawal
- Or would risk their health withdrawing without medical assistance
