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+00:00November 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

2021-09-30T15:19:29+00:00September 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. They should walk into a clean facility that makes them feel like a human being. They should not feel ashamed, embarrassed, or disrespected when accessing care for addiction. These are important values to look for when finding the best detox for drugs and alcohol for you or a loved one.   Here at Innovo Detox, we know that the quality of a detox program comes from the quality of the medical and clinical treatment [...]

After a long period of time where the world was ravaged by the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, with the emergence of vaccines and continued public health and safety protocols, for several months it seemed as if the world had a handle on COVID-19. Seemingly managed in during the springtime and into the summer, America began to open back up. More people were getting vaccinated, mask mandates were lifted, quarantines become almost non-existent, and life began to return to what seemed like a sense of normalcy. The hope everyone had yearned for since early 2020 seemed to take hold. Unfortunately, as the later summer continued, the thread of the Delta variant, currently the predominate strain of the virus in [...]

Innovo Detox: Patient and Professional Testimonials

2021-09-29T18:02:01+00:00July 19, 2021|Innovo Updates, Uncategorized|

Going to detox for drugs and alcohol can be a scary proposition. Most individuals that have suffered from addiction, whether for a short time or a long time, dread the prospects of having to deal with withdrawal symptoms. Furthermore, the thought of living life without drugs and alcohol can be terrifying.   Therefore, it is important that any detox or addiction treatment facility offer several components during the first days of recovery through detox- comprehensive medical and clinical care, FDA-approved medications to help manage withdrawal symptoms, supportive, trained, and expert staff, and a environment that offers comfort and healing. We recommend considering testimonials.   Most detox facilities or drug treatment centers and rehabs will all certainly claim to offer these [...]

My Experience at Innovo Detox

Detox is often, for most individuals suffering from addiction, the first step in the process of addiction treatment and recovery. Detox can be frightening, and the fear of withdrawals can keep a person using for many years past the point where they need to or want to seek sobriety and recovery. However, the process of detox does not have to be scary, when doing so under the expertise of 24/7 medical staff, well-versed in withdrawal management and medical stabilization. It is also important that the person feels safe and comfortable during the detox process. Eric (whose name has been changed) was a patient at Innovo in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic in mid-2020. He offered to write the following. [...]

2021-05-25T18:29:36+00:00May 17, 2021|Uncategorized|

As officials around the country continue to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, state officials in Pennsylvania face another rising public health epidemic- opioid overdoses and drug deaths. During the coronavirus pandemic, Pennsylvania’s addiction crisis continued, and the opioid epidemic claimed the lives of hundreds of Pennsylvanians.   The opioid deaths in Pennsylvania are staggering. In 2020, the state of Pennsylvania recorded 4,880 opioid overdose deaths. That number was an increase of 422 deaths from the 2019 total. These numbers do not take into account other addiction-related and drug-related deaths that took place during the same time period. The increase in numbers is in stark contrast to the previous years, which saw a 20 percent decrease in opioid deaths between the years [...]

The ability for individuals to access and use over-the-counter (OTC) medications (also known as nonprescription medication) to treat symptoms without a prescription offers many benefits to everyday consumers dealing with regular health concerns.
