For many patients, the greatest bonds they form when they enter treatment is with the recovery support staff. The direct support staff are able to quickly develop trust and a relationship with patients, which offers support as they get through their first days of what can sometimes be a difficult detox.
At Innovo Detox we feel it’s important for potential patients, their families, and professional colleagues to meet our staff and know who we are, so they can have a level of trust before starting the often scary process of detox and medical stabilization before continuing on in their process of recovery.
Addiction is a complex, chronic illness and we know that a long-term continuum of care that includes comprehensive clinical addiction treatment services, monitoring, and engagement in on-going community recovery support is vital to achieving long-term, sustainable recovery.
Part of any medical detox protocol to help someone stop misusing drugs and alcohol are medications. Whether is it over-the-counter medications to aid in regular discomfort, or specific and targeted medications to help with withdrawal, medications can play a key role in helping a patient get through any physical and mental discomfort and act as a necessary bridge through the difficult first days and weeks of early recovery.
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.
