84 85 INDIVIDUALIZED DETOX SOLUTIONS T he Novus Medical Detox Center was founded in 2006 by a retired attorney who had seen alcohol abuse plague his profes- sion and a father who had felt the pain of having two children battle addiction. It began with an understanding that for most people dependent on, or addicted to, drugs or alcohol, the most dif- ficult barrier to sobriety was the fear of the pain, sickness, and anxiety that was common in the typical detox facility. Because of this, Novus took on the mission of researching and developing the most comfortable withdrawal and detox available anywhere. Over the last 12 years, Novus has suc- ceeded in creating unique proprietary methods and specially compounded medicines that ensure the safest, most effective, and most comfortable detox obtainable. Novus’ first location was a 12-bed facility on three acres in New Port Richey, Florida, which was expand- ed to 31 beds and 13,000-plus square feet in 2014. A second, 18,000-plus-square-foot building with 41 beds, located in West Palm Beach, opened in 2017. Both Novus facilities are located on secluded, wooded acres. Each private or shared room has a bath and dedicated telephone number for assured privacy. The rooms are outfitted for work and relaxation and include a desk, AT A GLANCE NOVUS MEDICAL DETOX CENTERS WHAT: A provider of residential drug addiction services WHERE: Pasco County, Florida WEBSITE:
