Nova Counseling Services knows that addiction is a disease that cannot be cured, but can be treated. The residential rehab follows an abstinence-based, 12-Step model and employs a team of qualified and compassionate professionals to help clients recover from drug and alcohol addiction. Treating chemical dependency is a complex and demanding process, but Nova is committed to helping those who suffer build an effective, sustainable and lasting bridge to sobriety.

Facility Highlights

  • Educational Programs
  • Individualized Treatment Plan
  • Gender Specific Groups

Specialization

  • 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.
  • Aftercare Support
    Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.

I am the spouse of a recently discharged patient. Although we are separated by choice (his addictions)I feel the program was an in and out deal. Never once was I talked to about my concerns over the impact this ordeal has affected his whole family as a unit.His little " impact" letter was for 1 person only his biggest enabler next to the way I used to be.This place will take your $$ and let your loved ones run the show.

A joke. They tell you what you feel and/or think. What you say you feel and think is wrong. Your an addict and they know better. If your on state aid they will keep you in “treatment” as long as possible. They do the same to those that volunteer. They believed it was was important for my loved one to stay in “treatment” for an additional 90 day after 28 days instead of trying to find a way to transition back into life. Even though that would have ment losing their home, pets, and car. They were playing the “victim”. And the recovery was more important than keeping the most important things in life. The truth is, the guaranteed money is more important than you. In the end. My loved one snuck out of their “secure” facility, never looking back. It’s all about them. Not you. Find some other choice. I recommend Rogers Memorial.

Overall an expensive disappointment. My advice would be to look elsewhere. Zero mental health attention. Nova treats the "disease" of addiction, that is all. In the entire 28 days, no time was ever spent on getting their clients head's wrapped around why they seek to hide from the world with their substance of choice in the first place. When I asked why, I was told that wasn't important. The disease is the "real" issue. Couldn't it possibly be both...? At Nova there was almost no attempt at engaging the clientele and their specific needs. A very cookie cutter approach. And..."if this isn't working, it's your fault, not ours. We know what to do, you don't. Submit to power (Nova) and never forget that you are powerless..." Nova is big on instilling a mindset of addict for life. Including letting you know that it may take several times at treatment to make any headway. In addition, I am a counselor at several of the northern Wisconsin's prisons, and the staff that I met and spoke to at Nova were on an ego trip much like what I've observed when corrections officers interact with inmates. "Keep your mouth shut, we aren't interested in what you think." The message is, "listen to the lectures, read these papers and complete these assignments, then you'll be healed", rather than, "tell me about yourself and let's tailor something to you". Cold, impersonal and stern, often to the point of being militant. Thankfully my son went into Nova with his head on mostly straight and was able to ride it out or it would have been a disaster. Not what we had hoped for him at all.

A great educational, supportive asset to society. Definitely focused on addicts serious about getting sober and collecting sources to continue living an alcohol and drug free life.
