Rise at Futures provides safe and comfortable medically-supervised detoxification. The expertly-staffed and fully-equipped Futures Recovery Healthcare medical services suite are designed to provide detoxification.
Detoxification is an important step in achieving medical stability and removing substances from one’s system prior to beginning additional treatment. Most people who have become dependent upon substances experience mental and physical discomfort when they suddenly stop using them. Sudden cessation of alcohol and benzodiazepine poses an especially high risk because side-effects of withdrawal from these substances can become life-threatening. This makes it especially important for experienced medical doctors to take an accurate addiction history and establish a treatment plan to detoxify safely and comfortably.
Futures’ Chief Medical Officer, Gloria Dunkin, MD, is an addiction psychiatrist with significant detoxification experience. Dr. Dunkin and her team of nurses ensure that patients receive any necessary medications to facilitate safe detox, and closely supervise the detoxification process.
