Detox services in trouble at Farmington facility

FARMINGTON, N.M. (KRQE) – Detox services at a Farmington recovery facility could be doomed.

According to the Daily Times, the Four Winds Recovery Center may have to quit offering a protective custody detox service because of a 54 percent drop in county funding.

The facility serves the Navajo Nation and the four corner region.

The center’s director says it’s only a matter of time before the center will stop providing the detox program.

The center holds 39 beds for its detox unit. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
