Fullbrook Center has an on-site medical detox facility, in which patients will receive 24/7 medical care and oversight. This provides patients with a safe and comfortable environment for detoxification. Without appropriate medical care, these symptoms can be unpleasant, dangerous, and even life-threatening. Appropriate medical protocols are followed to assist patients in experiencing as little physical discomfort as possible.
Around-the-clock medical care can ensure safety and certain medications can reduce the severity of withdrawal symptoms, as well as decrease the dangers of this initial period.
