Fun in Early Sobriety at Innovo Detox

2022-09-30T09:55:13-04:00September 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 [...]

Mental Health Conditions that Accompany a Drug and Alcohol Detox

2022-09-15T14:18:53-04:00September 15, 2022|Detox, Mental Health|

Individuals that enter detox with addiction issues to drugs and alcohol often also suffer from a mental health condition. This is referred to as a co-occurring disorder or a dual diagnosis. Co-occurring disorders (or dual diagnosis) refers to having a co-existing mental health condition or mental illness and a substance use disorder.   It is vital that anyone seeking help for an addiction, like entering a detox for drugs and alcohol, also finds a facility that is equipped to handle any mental health issues that they may have, or that may arise during detox. For years, it was thought that treatment facilities may be able to treat either an addiction or mental health issue separately, with the idea that one [...]

Farm-to-Table Cooking at Innovo Detox

2022-08-30T14:56:52-04:00August 17, 2022|Uncategorized|

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 [...]

What is National Wellness Month? Each August in America, National Wellness Month focuses on self-care, managing stress, and promoting healthy routines. While wellness and living a healthy lifestyle is vital, many Americans find creating a life focusing on wellness to be difficult.

National Wellness Month is an opportunity to create awareness about the importance of wellness and to focus on incorporating wellness routines into our daily lives that can last during the whole year.

Will My Health Insurance Cover Detox?

2022-08-30T11:01:24-04:00August 2, 2022|Detox, Insurance|

It is an unfortunate truth that America’s behavioral healthcare system is flawed. Someone seeking help for addiction or mental health issues often find that in order to get connected to services they must engage in an often confusing, convoluted process. Often services are inaccessible, therapists and psychiatrists have waitlists, or the services they need do not exist within their local area. They too can find that many services are expensive. While the Affordable Care Act and the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA) should ensure that anyone is able to access services and those services should be covered by their health insurance, many people find this is not the case.   Whether someone has Medicaid, Medicare, or private [...]
