ABOUT NOVA RECOVERY CENTER - AUSTIN INTENSIVE OUTPATIENT
Nova Recovery Center is a private company that operates four facilities in Texas: Hill Country Detox in Buda; a residential center in Wimberley, also in Hill Country; and outpatient centers in Houston and at the address given on this page, in northeast Austin.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
The Austin facility offers an intensive outpatient program (IOP), which can be followed either as entry-level care or as a step-down from more intensive residential treatment or detox.
Participants meet three times a week for eight weeks, participating in individual and group counseling sessions as well as educational lectures. The treatment ethos is traditional: Nova Recovery Center facilitates the use of the 12-steps and supplements them with common evidence-based practices such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and contingency management (CM), a behavioral therapy that uses positive reinforcement to change behavior. The program aims to provide education about addiction and recovery, peer support, and counseling for any particular difficulties the client is facing.
The organization's medical team includes two board-certified psychiatrists, and the clinical director is a licensed professional counselor. However, it's not clear which if any of these staff are stationed at the Austin IOP center.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Elsewhere in Austin, Nova Recovery Center operates sober-living homes for men, women, and members of the LGBTQ+ community through its sister company Eudaimonia Recovery Homes; some clients live in these homes while completing the Austin IOP.

"I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your help and patience you had with us... You changed his life forever in a good way. He is truly blessed," this reviewer, N.S., wrote of their son's stay. "Great place," Melina wrote on Google in the only other piece of positive commentary.
"The place was nice, but the price is crap. Website is misleading about accepting your insurance," S.G. wrote on Yelp in the only remaining piece of commentary.
"Nova is primarily a private pay facility," notes the organization's website. However, some insurance is accepted, on an out-of-network basis only. The organization has relationships with two medical loans companies, for those who must borrow money in order to access treatment.
