The owners of Maryland Addiction Recovery Center of Towson, Maryland, have announced the opening of Innovo Detox, a MARC Treatment Center. Innovo Detox, located in Abbottstown, Pennsylvania, is a licensed 52-bed facility that will offer detox and medical stabilization services to the local community and surrounding Mid-Atlantic area.
“We had noticed a dire need for detox and medical stabilization services for our patients and that was a need we heard voiced by many colleagues and other treatment organizations within our area,” said Maryland Addiction Recovery Center and Innovo Detox Co-Founder Zach Snitzer. “Within our area of the DMV and Pennsylvania, many people were needing to drive 3 hours or longer to find a true detox facility, so Innovo Detox will be able to offer the highest quality of medical services and in doing so serve an area of the country very much in need. This new detox will allow the necessary time for a patient to be detoxed safely and become medically stabile before moving on to the next appropriate clinical level of care.”
Innovo Detox is a new organization, separate from Maryland Addiction Recovery Center, and will operate independently, looking to partner with treatment and clinical professionals throughout the treatment continuum. Innovo Detox will open its doors to accept patients on Monday, March 16th. On Thursday, March 5th, the ownership and staff of Innovo Detox held an open house, where over 250 addiction and mental health treatment professionals and local community members came to meet ownership, leadership, and staff, and receive tours of the new facility. Sam Bierman, Co-Founder of Maryland Addiction Recovery Center and Innovo Detox, gave remarks to the attendees, as did Innovo’s new Executive Director Molly Ashcroft, formerly to Corporate Director of Admissions and Development at Maryland Addiction Recovery Center.
“We were so pleased to have such a great turnout for our open house,” explained Molly Ashcroft. “Of course it was great to have leadership from so many of the great treatment organizations that know and have worked with MARC over the years attend, but it was also amazing to see the outpouring of support from so many local community, healthcare, government, and religious organizations near the new facility. They voiced how much these services are needed, and we are proud to be able to offer a facility that we hope will help save many lives and aid individuals on a new path of recovery.”
