Nova Recovery Center

601 Old Oaks Ranch Rd, Wimberley, Texas, 78676
The experienced staff at Nova Recovery Center has developed a comprehensive drug and alcohol rehabilitation program based on a philosophy that emphasizes individualized treatment programming to address the deep underlying issues surrounding addiction, evidence-based treatment methods, and recovery support services. This method builds a strong treatment foundation for individuals in early recovery so they can heal, restore, and rebuild their lives.

Facility Highlights

  • Gender-specific treatment
  • Evidenced-based treatment
  • 12-Step immersion


  • Family Program

    Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it's important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.
  • Dual Diagnosis/Co-occurring Disorders Treatment

    These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.

Nightmare. Literally. I will list the fact and you can discern for yourself. I paid out of pocket for my friend to get the help he needed. First, don’t believe the intake counselor when they tell you the center can take your loved one through the 12 steps in 30 days. In 21 days (the amount of time spent at the center); he went through step one. They told me he started step 2 on his 20th day. He only saw his 12-step counselor 2 times during his stay. At this rate it would have taken 34 weeks! Second, the AC was out in his room for 4 days. They had to move the meetings it was so hot. FYI Texas heat is no joke. Third, my friend got a staff infection when he was there and didn’t receive medical treatment for 48 hours. Many issues with this situation. Fourth, the rehab roomed my friend with a schizophrenic person that talked to himself. My friend woke up with this person standing by his bed with no clothes on watching him. This same person urinated on the bathroom floor and the rehab did not clean it up for 3 days. Health Code violation. Naturally the center told me that all of these situations were handled as soon as they found out about them and insinuated my friend lied about all 5 stations. Why did these situations even happen? 1- Does not push 12-step program 2- Bad AC in Texas 3- Two days wait for emergency medical treatment 4- Gave my friend a Schizophrenic roommate 5- Did not clean up urine for 3 days. This rehab is not safe and does not maintain a clean or healthy facility. Send your loved one somewhere else. They didn’t entertain the thought of reimbursing me my funds for the 9 days not spent at the center either. Nova Recovery Center in Wimberly Texas is a Nightmare.
