Novus is the optimum place for someone to begin their healing process from their addiction or dependency. Novus individually tailors their detox program to each patient's exacting needs and requirements. We use a holistic approach which takes into account all facets of the addiction, including the patient's history, body metabolism, current health and existing circumstances. Accomplished in a relaxed spa-like environment that is medically supervised 24/7, we provide the highest standard of competent and experienced professional care. In addition, we utilize state-of-the-art medical protocols and evidence-based integrative medicine, along with our innovative proprietary nutritional IVs and supplements, all designed to speed the body's healing process.

Facility Highlights

  • Individualized Programs, Medically Monitored 24/7
  • Specializing in Comfortable Detox for even the Highest Dosage Cases
  • Medical and Nutritional Adjustments Made as Needed Throughout the Program


  • Residential Treatment

    Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.
  • Medical Detoxification

    Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.

I was a patient at Novus Detox Center back in March. I was mistreated. I was given medicine most commonly given to patients withdrawing from methadone. I asked nurses & as well as techs how & why I was given this medication with no answer from anyone for 4 daysamalcohol & this medicinedays. I am an alcohol & this medicine made me feel like i had drank 2 bottles of vodka. I was falling all over & bouncing again the walls to get to nursing station. Finally upon leaving one nurse said he knew why I was so upset. He said the matter was being taken seriously & had gone as high that the Director was involved. I have proof of this “ mistake “ . I urge anyone thinking about Novus Detox for help look elsewhere, Kathleen Olsen

    I came to novus about a year and a half ago. Everything i read about them on their website just isn’t true. This place is a BUSINESS and they make their money off of you. There are no individualized treatment plans. Everything goes through the same detox process and if you complain about certain symptoms they give you “medicine” so you’re not uncomfortable. the entire detox stay, you are on some kind of medication. and when it’s time to go home, you ILL withdrawal. it’s unfortunate that they make it seem like you’re 99% good when you leave. lies. Not only that, most of their staff is atrocious. Particularly the gals working at the front desk. From my experience i’d highly recommend going elsewhere to detox.
