Drug & Alcohol Home Detox Centres In Alberta

Throughout the province of Alberta, there are a couple of different drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs that are able to provide home detox kits and can help a person detox at home off of the drugs they may be taking. Some detoxes are more difficult than others, and some require medical detox as an addict may be on a large number of narcotic medications or drugs that they cannot stop taking cold turkey. Drug and alcohol detox is usually best done in a residential setting as a person can be monitored and helped through all the stages and steps that will be occurring when they start their detox. Home detox kits rely on the addict themselves to go at it alone unless family and friends can help them through the process. Typically, success is not as high as the addict will be in a familiar environment and can gain access to more drugs. There is a program in Claimont and one in Medicine Hat that can offer home detox along with residential detox programs for men, women, and teens. These programs also provide assessment services for addicts to help them determine the best course of action for treatment and care for their addiction. In some cases, this may require a home detox, but as most counselors will recommend a residential detox is best needed for addicts.

Marcel Gemme has been helping people struggling with addiction for over 19 years. He first started as an intake counselor for a drug rehabilitation center in 2000. During his 5 years as an intake counselor, he helped many addicts get the treatment they needed.

With drug and alcohol problems constantly on the rise in the United States and Canada, he decided to use the Internet as a way to educate and help many more people in both those countries. This was 15 years ago. Since then, Marcel has built two of the largest websites in the U.S. and Canada which reach and help millions of people each year. He is an author and a leader in the field of drug and alcohol addiction. His main focus is threefold: education, prevention and rehabilitation.
