Detox 5 started me on a long journey back to reality, without Detox 5 this would not have been possible. The staff are all excellent at dealing with all of the issues that come along with opiate misuse. Detox 5 should be funded by the NHS. The only criticism I have is that cold drinks were not available, Ice cold drinks are a 'must have' when detoxing.
