Initial TreatmentWe have an entire team dedicated to meeting the needs of individuals who are just beginning their journey in recovery. Treatment for new clients is heavily focused on education and providing basic skills that you will need to be successful as you move forward. By applying proven techniques from the start, we can help you establish a long-term recovery, keeping relapse at bay.
Chronic RelapseThe NOVA team also specializes in treatment for clients who suffer from chronic relapse. We often find that clients who continue to struggle with their recovery have needs related to past experiences or behaviors that have never been addressed or may not have been fully resolved. We will help you examine the barriers that are holding you back from a full recovery, and guide and support you as you begin to work through them. We will look at your previous recovery experiences, where you have struggled in them, and what we can assist you in changing to create a new experience.
