Throughout America, overall addiction and substance use disorder-related statistics are rising.

The alarming statistics and trends hold true for most states throughout the nation. Maryland, located right next to Innovo Detox’s home state of Pennsylvania, has seen a staggering impact related to addiction and mental health. For years, Maryland was known as a state with a [...]

As the New Year approaches, it is only natural for people to make New Year’s resolutions. A tradition as the clock turns to a new year, a New Year’s resolution is typical a promise a person makes to themselves to do something different or make an improvement in the new year. The idea is, as a new year begins, so can people take steps to improve or better themselves through this declaration or promise that they make to themselves. It is often easier to make changes on a specific date, and what better date than January 1st. It’s the “new year, new me” principle. However, it is also well-known that while many people make New Year’s resolutions, so do many [...]

Fun in Early Sobriety at Innovo Detox

2022-11-21T14:41:36-05:00September 30, 2022|Uncategorized|

When thinking about going to detox for drugs and alcohol, or thinking about an addiction treatment experience, most people certainly don’t equate such an experience with having fun. And for some reasons, that isn’t entirely inaccurate. Most people don’t enter treatment because they are excited about sobriety or looking forward to a life of recovery free of drugs and alcohol. Instead, most people seek treatment or admit into detox because their life is on fire- they’ve burned bridges, ruined relationships, lost a job, find themselves in legal or financial difficulty, or have been cut off from their family, friends and loved ones. In short, most people do not enter detox or addiction treatment riding a rainbow of enthusiasm surrounded [...]

Farm-to-Table Cooking at Innovo Detox

Nutrition and healthy, delicious food are vital for a patient going through detox. Of anyone that has suffered from drug or alcohol addiction, few can say that they have truly taken care of their health during active addiction. Therefore, when going to detox and managing withdrawal symptoms, it is important that patients not only receive the highest quality medical care and clinical services to support their mental and emotional health, but that they also eat a diet that supports their bodies healing.   This is one of the reasons that when opening Innovo Detox, we took great pride in finding a chef and a culinary team that can do just that: cook incredible meals for patients that would also benefit [...]

How Long Do You Need to Drink or Use Drugs Before Needing Detox?

2022-04-25T20:51:08-04:00March 21, 2022|Detox, Uncategorized|

One of the main questions an individual or concerned family members asks regarding substance use disorder or addiction is how long someone needs to abuse drugs or alcohol before they need detox. Often a concerned parent, spouse or loved one will call a rehab or addiction treatment center because they are concerned about their loved one’s drug use or drinking. They will often ask if that loved one needs detox based on the amount of time the person has been misusing drugs or having issues with their drinking.   Unfortunately, there is no cut and dry or black and white answer regarding this question. Every person is different, with different factors regarding their substance misuse including different biology, different physiology, [...]

2021 is ending. Soon, we will celebrate the coming of 2022. As a year winds down, it is natural to take time to reflect on the year, both good and bad, and to enter with hope the new year that is dawning.   The end of a year and the beginning of a new year is also an excellent time to take stock of what needs to end, and what needs to be built upon to birth or to begin anew. It is natural during this time to think about change. And for those individuals having problems with drugs and alcohol, or suffering from addiction, the new year is an excellent opportunity to take a look at what is not [...]

5 Misconceptions About Sobriety

2021-11-11T19:14:12-05:00November 9, 2021|Uncategorized|

Finding recovery and getting sober seems rational to those people that have never suffered from addiction. From the outside looking in, they see someone suffering from addiction whose life is chaotic and unmanageable and they think “why wouldn’t this person want to get sober?” It seems pretty simple. Drugs and alcohol are ruining your life, so of course you would want to find recovery and get sober in order to find a better life.   However, as anyone that has ever suffered from addiction and substance use disorder knows, it certainly is not that simple. For one, individuals suffering from addiction have had their brains hijacked by drugs and alcohol. Due to the impact of substances on their brains and [...]

Best Detox for Drugs and Alcohol

2022-10-17T14:10:09-04:00September 21, 2021|Uncategorized|

There is enough shame and stigma surrounding addiction that when an individual or their loved ones seek a detox or addiction treatment facility due to issues with drugs and alcohol, that individual and their family should walk into a facility that is clean, respectful, and dignified.

These are important values to look for when finding the best detox for drugs and alcohol for you or a loved one.
