Getting clean and sober is not a quick process. While many people would much rather go into a detox facility and come out ready to face the world, the truth is that detox is just the first step on a path to long-term recovery. It helps to choose the right location and environment1 in which to begin this incredible journey.
Here’s where location matters. To properly heal, to gradually wean off drugs and alcohol, you need detox. And you need it done right. This requires medical supervision and care in a drug detox (or alcohol detox) facility. There are many choices for detoxing, some spartan and cold, others warm and inviting, part of a peaceful, welcoming environment. Considering how difficult detox may be and to maximize the likelihood of a comfortable and successful detox, selecting the best possible rehab center environment for detox and subsequent recovery makes a lot of sense.
At Nova Recovery Center, clients benefit from our peaceful environment the moment they enter the rehab center. The property, located on 25 acres in the heart of the Texas Hill Country, is quiet, exquisitely maintained and furnished, with a high staff-to-client ratio, personalized attention and care, the latest evidence-based treatment modalities, and an overall ambiance that is conducive to and promotes healing.
What distinguishes one long-term residential treatment center from another often comes down to three essential elements: the type of treatment, the credentials and caliber of the treatment professionals and staff involved, and the personalized, one-on-one attention clients receive.
Given the proliferation of rehab centers, each touting specific aspects that set them apart, the ultimate choice of a long-term drug rehab or alcohol treatment center can be a difficult one. It requires thorough investigation to find the right rehab center for detox and recovery2.

A Long-Term Process
Treatment for drug and alcohol abuse, dependence and addiction is not a one-and-done event. It is a long-term process that requires dedication and commitment on the part of the client and the treatment professionals involved.
Overcoming the ravages of drug and alcohol abuse, particularly for those who’ve repeatedly relapsed and those with dual-diagnosis, is best accomplished in an environment that is healing and restorative. This means a drug rehab center that is safe, secure and nurturing in every aspect of care.
It also is not enough to simply get clean by detoxing from drugs and alcohol. Without attending to the underlying disease of addiction through counseling, education, participation in 12 step and self-help groups, relapse prevention, recovery efforts can quickly derail.
The environment in which treatment occurs has a lot to do with how well the client approaches and accepts his or her healing journey. When the focus is on healing the body, mind and spirit instead of just treating the addiction, the likelihood of effective recovery increases. Nova Recovery Center’s four pillars of care include attention to the emotional, behavioral, physical and recovery understanding.
