Dr Howard Gluss & Daraknot Health


Dr Gluss is a true pioneer in the field of addiction treatment. He conceptualized the creation of what has become known as ‘at home addiction treatment. An innovative new method of addiction treatment in the United States.


Daraknot Health is the brainchild of Dr Gluss, and he leads a team of highly experienced, World Class addiction specialists treating individuals and families in a clients home, rather than have them attend a traditional residential ‘rehab’ facility.  Supported by a specially-trained team of addiction professionals, Dr Gluss and his team deliver a best-in-class in-home addiction treatment program backed by both logic and data.


What is ‘In Home Addiction Treatment’?


In Home Addiction Treatment from Daraknot Health delivers private, in-home drug and alcohol rehab care by providing their clients a discrete, individualized program that meets them where they are. Daraknot Health treatment programs are uniquely tailored to the professional needs of an individual client, allowing them to begin their journey to sobriety in their home or one of their partner resorts.


In Home Addiction Treatment vs Residential Rehab


According to a recent study1https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5844157/ only 1 out of 5 people that seek help through a treatment center will stay sober their first year in recover. And even those who are in recovery a full two years still have a 40% chance of relapsing. commitment, addiction treatment can be successful. The most common attributing factors to relapse are issues around mental health disorders such as depression, anxiety and unresolved Trauma.


No matter how and bespoke and individualized a residential treatment center claims to be, the structure around treatment can never be truly harmonious with a clients specific requirements. To solve this problem Dr Howard and the team at Daraknot Health created ‘At Home Addiction Treatment’.
