You should have made an advance payment upon your arrival at the unit.
The advance payment is part of the total cost of the treatment and is taken into account when the final invoice is prepared.

It is a good idea to bring the medication you regularly use and any medical notes from previous periods of treatment when you come to the hospital. Personal hygiene articles and slippers are also good to have.

YOUR OWN DOCTOR

Everyone has their own doctor, who is responsible for their care. The doctor discusses with the patient, asks about the patient’s alcohol background and any problems in their life and describes how the treatment will be conducted. The basis of successful treatment is tailor-made medication and discussions between the patient and the doctor/healthcare staff.

 

LENGTH OF THE TREATMENT

The length of the treatment depends greatly on the customer’s alcohol background and age. Older patients normally need a longer period of treatment than those who are younger. The minimum period is 48 hours. The treatment package always include subsequent follow-up at the addiction doctor’s clinic. The best results are achieved with at least 72 hours treatment.
