Most of the time, individuals suffering from addiction and in need of a drug and alcohol detox are looking for one primary thing: Getting through withdrawals. Their primary goal is to not have to feel uncomfortable when withdrawing from drugs or alcohol. Fortunately, with the help of professional medical and clinical staff, and the use of approved FDA medications, it is certainly possible for a person to feel comfortable going through detox and dealing with withdrawals. That being said, any detox or rehab that tells a potential patient that they will never feel uncomfortable during a detox is lying to that patient. Drugs and alcohol do a number on the body, both physically and psychologically, and after months or years of drug and alcohol misuse and abuse, a patient will inevitably have to deal with some level of discomfort. However, withdrawal symptoms are easily manageable, and patients should not fear going to detox.

That being said, a medical detox also  offers so much more for individuals seeking help for addiction and substance use disorder beyond providing a safe, comfortable detox process and managing withdrawals. Here at Innovo Detox, here is what you can expect during your detox experience:

24/7 Care, Supervision and Support

At Innovo Detox, patients are offered 24/7 medical care and support, as well as 24/7 support from our recovery support staff of Therapeutic Assistants. Innovo Detox also offers 7-day-per week clinical support from therapists and counselors. This type of round-the-clock support and supervision ensures that patients receive everything that they need while going through detox and treatment.

Individual Counseling and Therapy

While at Innovo Detox, patients are assigned a primary therapist. This primary therapist or counselor will support them through their time in treatment, conduct individual counseling and therapy sessions, as well as help facilitate any communication or sessions with patient stakeholders, such as parents, spouses, children, employees, human resources professionals, EAPs, or attorneys. Individual counseling sessions allow for patients to begin dealing with specific issues, challenges, or past experiences that are vital to identify, address, and overcome in order to find recovery.

Group Therapy

Patients also will receive group therapy sessions multiple times per day at Innovo Detox. Group sessions, conducted by a counselor or therapy, will begin an important process of psychoeducation surrounding addiction and mental health issues, while beginning to address other important issues and the ability to process them. Group therapy sessions also begin to implement accountability for patients, and help to develop a sense of community and identification.

Psychiatry and Medication Management

Every patient that comes to Innovo Detox will have a session with a psychiatrist, who will help to assess any mental health issues, as well as develop an appropriate detox protocol. Medications will be prescribed to help the patient manage any withdrawal symptoms, and the patient will receive ongoing reassessments to make any necessary changes to their medication or mental health needs during their time in detox.

Case Management

Many patients that come to detox are dealing with a number of issues that require case management. This could include legal issues, family dynamics, issues with their job, needing to report issues to a board, or needing to take FMLA. Our team at Innovo Detox will help to coordinate all necessary communication or logistical needs for a patient during their stay, as well as help set up anything that will be needed once they discharge. This also includes vital aftercare planning, to help set a patient up with a successful plan to help support them in ongoing treatment and recovery.

Scheduling Needs

While in detox at Innovo, some patients may have specific needs. Some patients may have young children that they need to communicate with, business owners or other professionals may have needs to meet for work, or some patients may need to take some time to handle legal issues they are experiencing. Whatever the case, the team at Innovo Detox will help create times where patients are able to handle any business or personal responsibilities, while making sure those responsibilities do not interfere with their treatment process.

A Safe, Calming, At-Home Environment

Whether it is resting in a comfortable bed watching television, sitting in the patient lounge quietly reading a book, spending time with the other patients playing foosball or watching a movie, Innovo Detox offers patients a very comfortable, quiet, private environment. The staff and facility help patients feel at home, while they are receiving life-saving addiction care.

Restaurant-Quality Meals

Often mentioned by Innovo Detox alumni, the facility culinary team provide the best in 5-Star restaurant quality menus. Daily menus are planned by the chef and culinary team that are delicious, filling, and meet every patient’s dietary and nutritional needs. Any patient with certain dietary restrictions will have specific menu selections created for them, and snacks are available round-the-clock. This helps patients to easier get through withdrawal symptoms, return quicker back to health, and provides a sense of nutritional guidance they can take with them moving forward in sobriety.
