Alcohol and Drug Detox Residential Treatment Centre in Sheffield and South Yorkshire

At Eleven Recovery, a leading residential treatment centre in Sheffield, we specialise in personalised recovery programmes for alcohol and drug detox services. We understand the challenges you face, we have extensive experience helping clients from South Yorkshire and the surrounding area.

Alcohol detoxification

Alcohol detoxification, often referred to as alcohol detox, is the process by which a person's body attempts to rid itself of alcohol and its byproducts when someone who is dependent on alcohol stops consuming it. This process is necessary for individuals who have developed a physical dependence on alcohol, as suddenly stopping alcohol consumption can lead to withdrawal symptoms that can range from mild to severe and even life-threatening in some cases.


Alcohol detox treatment at our residential centre is typically the first step in treating alcohol use disorder and is best conducted under medical supervision to ensure the safety and well-being of the individual undergoing detoxification. In a medical detox setting, healthcare professionals can provide medications and support to manage withdrawal symptoms and prevent complications. Once detox is completed, further treatment and support, such as therapy, counselling, and rehabilitation programs, may be recommended to address the psychological and behavioural aspects of alcohol dependence.

Cocaine detoxification

Cocaine detoxification, commonly known as cocaine detox, is the process by which the body eliminates cocaine and its metabolites after a person who has been using cocaine decides to stop taking the drug. Cocaine detoxification is necessary for individuals who have developed a dependence on cocaine and are looking to discontinue its use. The process can vary in duration and intensity depending on factors such as the amount and frequency of cocaine use, as well as individual differences in metabolism and overall health.


During cocaine detox, individuals may experience a range of withdrawal symptoms, which can include fatigue, depression, increased appetite, vivid dreams, intense cravings for cocaine, and in some cases, agitation or anxiety. In cases of heavy or prolonged cocaine use, withdrawal symptoms can be more severe and may include cognitive impairment, paranoia, and even suicidal thoughts.


Professional medical supervision is recommended during cocaine detox to ensure the safety and well-being of the individual undergoing the process. Eleven Recovery can provide supportive care, medications to manage symptoms, and psychological support to help individuals cope with withdrawal and prevent relapse. Following detoxification, ongoing treatment at Eleven Recovery will include a range of therapeutic services, such as recovery coaching, our integrated 12-step treatment programme, IFS (Internal Family Systems) Therapy, to address the underlying issues contributing to cocaine use and facilitate long-term recovery and sobriety.

Opiate detoxification

Opiate detoxification is the process of eliminating opiates and their byproducts from the body when a person who is physically dependent on or addicted to opiates ceases or reduces their use of these substances. Opiates include prescription pain medications like oxycodone, fentanyl, hydrocodone, and morphine, as well as illegal drugs like heroin.

Withdrawal symptoms from opiates can be severe and include anxiety, agitation, muscle aches, sweating, diarrhoea, nausea, vomiting, and intense drug cravings. Opiate detox can be challenging and uncomfortable, requires medical supervision to manage withdrawal symptoms and ensure the safety of the individual undergoing detoxification.


There are different approaches to opiate detox, including medical detoxification, which involves the use of medications like methadone, buprenorphine, or naltrexone to help manage withdrawal symptoms and cravings. These medications can help ease the discomfort of withdrawal and reduce the risk of relapse. In some cases, a tapering schedule may be used to gradually reduce the dose of opiates to minimise withdrawal symptoms.

After completing the detox process, further treatment and support are often recommended to address the psychological, social, and behavioural aspects of opiate addiction.

6-Step Detoxification Process at Sheffield’s Leading Residential Treatment Centre

The detoxification process typically includes:


  1. Assessment: Prior to admission, each guest is assessed by a nurse to evaluate their physical and mental health, as well as the severity of their alcohol or substance dependency.

  2. Detoxification: Medically supervised detoxification involves managing withdrawal symptoms as the body eliminates alcohol from the system. This may include medications to ease withdrawal symptoms and prevent complications.

  3. Medical Monitoring: Throughout the detox process, individuals are closely monitored by healthcare professionals to ensure their safety and well-being. Vital signs, hydration levels, and overall health are regularly assessed.

  4. Psychological Support: A robust treatment programme is integrated into the detox process to address the emotional and psychological aspects of a guest drug and alcohol dependency. This includes a range of therapeutic services such as Counselling, IFS therapy and psych- education, family support and relapse prevention.

  5. Nutritional Support: Creating balanced nutrition is essential during detox to help the body recover from the effects of drug and alcohol abuse. Nutritional counselling and balanced meal plans are provided at Eleven Recovery to support physical health and recovery.

  6. Robust residential treatment: Following detox, individuals are typically encouraged to continue with ongoing treatment and support to maintain sobriety.

It's important to note that detox is often just the first step in the recovery process, and ongoing treatment and support are necessary to address the underlying causes of alcohol dependence and promote long-term sobriety. At Eleven Recovery the focus is on providing comprehensive care to help individuals achieve lasting recovery from drug and alcohol addiction.
