Equinox Brook Drive provides medically managed detoxification programmes for adults who require assisted withdrawal from addictive substances. We offer detoxification from any combination of: alcohol; heroin; recreational or 'party' drugs; prescription drugs; stimulants such as cocaine and crack cocaine; solvents; and cannabis.
The Equinox Brook Drive clinical staff are very adaptable to our client's individual circumstances.
We are open to men and women with a dual diagnosis of mental ill health and alcohol/ drug dependence.
We provide pregnant women with clinically supervised detoxification from alcohol and/or drugs.
We work well with treatment-resistant drug and alcohol users, whose health has become a critical concern. This includes people with advanced liver disease, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, DVT and blood-borne viruses, who require a medically managed alcohol or drug detox.
Equinox Brook Drive provides a safe and comfortable environment for our clients. We offer a relaxed setting with recreational facilities. Our single rooms are brightly decorated and warm, offering all our clients privacy and comfort during their stay.
We allow pets to stay with our service users at Equinox Brook Drive. This provides reassurance for pet owners, whilst they undergo their detoxification.
We provide a rich and varied recovery programme, with 1-2-1 and group work elements, complementary therapies (a range of massage techniques and acupuncture), health information sessions, recreation time and life skills sessions.
We work closely with care managers to ensure our service users move on from Equinox Brook Drive with a plan in place - including moving on to residential rehabilitation, day programmes in their area and returning home.
