Here at Innovo Detox in Pennsylvania, we understand that making the decision to stop active addiction and seek out recovery is daunting. The fear of withdrawals, the fear of detox, the fear of change, and the fear of living life without drugs and alcohol can be scary, and that fear can keep someone in active addiction for many years.

However, here at Innovo Detox, we also understand that those first few days of the process of recovery are some of the most important and valuable that you will ever face. We know that in order to seek a life of recovery, it takes getting over the hump of actually stopping drug and alcohol misuse, getting through withdrawals or discomfort, both physically and emotionally, and getting to a place where you are medically stable, mentally fit, and emotionally healthy in order to truly begin the wonderful journey of recovery from addiction.

First, we want to let you know that many of us have been through active addiction, taken the steps of going through withdrawals, and making the decision to enter detox and then seek rehab or treatment. We’ve been there. We know what you are going through. And we know it’s not easy, but it is absolutely worth it. Trust us, because we didn’t believe it at first either. We felt hopeless and alone, terrified and afraid. We felt no one truly understand what we were going through, and even if we sought recovery, it wouldn’t work for us. However, we are here to tell you that there are others that understand, there are others that have been through it, and there are millions of people around there world that have been where you are, have taken the steps to seek recovery, and no longer feel that way. Rather, they are people living free from addiction, that are here to tell you that there is hope and that recovery can and will work for you if you take those first few steps. Many of them are right here, in our facility in Pennsylvania, at Innovo Detox ready and willing to help.

So, what can you expect from your alcohol and drug detox experience?

Let us try to help calm your nerves, lessen your anxiety, ease your fears, and offer some insight.


 Upon your initial call to us, you will be met with respect, compassion, and understanding by our Director of Admissions Debby MacNeil or one of her admissions team members. They will explain everything you need to know, regarding your medical and therapeutic care, what the facility is like, the medications available to help with withdrawal, and answer any questions you have about your detox stay. They will discuss with you any information regarding cost, insurance, or financial obligations, and make sure you have an understanding before you ever step through the door. They will handle all pre-admission information and meet you when you arrive. If you need transportation, they will arrange for an Innovo Detox staff member to transport you to the facility.


 Upon entering Innovo Detox, you will find out brand new state-of-the-art facility is rural Adams County, Pennsylvania. It offers the quiet, secluded, calming environment you will need to begin your healing process. You will most likely be met by our office manager Michaela O’Hern at the front door with a kind, caring smile and she will bring you and your loved ones to meet our admissions team and begin you intake process.


 You will immediately begin your detox protocol, meeting with the medical team, including Medical Director Dr. Alok Saharan, to make sure the medications are able to make you as comfortable as possible during your stay, medically managing your withdrawal symptoms. You will meet Director of Nursing Jamie Carr, nurse practitioners James Shellem and Philip Walters, and the entire nursing staff. You will meet our clinical team, Brianna Earomirski, and Colleen Ramsey, and when physically able, begin some basic treatment and counseling in group and individual settings. You will meet our Director of Support Services Kevin MacNeil and his team of therapeutic assistants, who will be your direct recovery support staff during your stay. Your room is equipped with a comfortable bed and high-quality linens, as well as a 55-inch television and cable. It has everything you need to feel comfortable, safe, and secure during your stay. To make sure you are getting all the appropriate nutrition you need, our facility chef Liam Surry and our kitchen staff prepare daily farm-to-table meals that they can make sure meet all your dietary needs while providing the most appropriate options for what you may be going through physically during detox. You will have a secluded outdoor patio in order to smoke, as well as a quiet patient lounge with a 65-inch television, cable, and fireplace to relax, and a patient game room equipped with foosball table, board games, and 64-inch cable television. All your creature comforts will be met, while you go through your medical detox and withdrawal management and begin your clinical treatment process. Early in your stay you will also meet with Continuing Care Coordinator Mike Kessler, who will work with you and your family to make sure that an appropriate clinical plan is in place once you are medically stable and prepared to discharge. We know that addiction is a chronic illness and that best recovery outcomes come from long-term care and recovery support. So, Mike will work with our clinical and medical teams as well as you and your loved ones to recommend the next steps in your treatment and recovery journey that will meet your clinical, financial, and scheduling needs. He will connect you with professionals from a facility, if that is your next step, so all communication and coordination will be done before you arrive. Upon discharge, you will either leave our facility, be picked up by family, or transported by Innovo Detox staff to the next step in your agreed upon destination, where that is to another inpatient or rehab facility, a recovery house, or your home.

We know taking the steps to seek out help for addiction and to enter a detox isn’t easy. It takes courage and strength. It takes hope and a belief that walking through this difficult and crucial situation will be worth it. We want you to know that it is worth it. There is hope and there is healing. There is a life of recovery waiting for you on the other side and we are happy to walk with you in those first few days of recovery, so that you may find the health, happiness, and freedom that you deserve.
