Detox Success Stories

I truly believe that this newsletter is one of the best I have ever seen? Truthful, encouraging (but still scary, in a good way), the truthful part is the most impressive and encouraging.

People that have been involved with this do know all the milogram lingo you speak of and I think that will help them believe that you really know what you are talking about and then they can trust you.

This is my backhand way of saying thank you so much for all you and your staff and your wife and wonderful daughter have done for me.

The first month after Novus was very difficult – a lot of panic attaches – a lot. Your program is the best – I should say…. It was the best for me. Your do really realize that every individual is different and you honestly do address each one individually.

I certainly do applaued you all – I’m not sure how you ever came up with such a wonderful program but I, again, do thank you and God for taking me in, taking care of me, talking me through my bad dreams, sleepless nights, feeling of guilt (which I don’t have any more), and fear of being the way I was (a happier me).


(Methadone, Xanax, Klonopin)


It was very helpful to have people who genuinely care about what they are doing and the patients in the program. They helped talk me through some difficult times.

Joe was very good a finding a vein. Monty was a lot of fun to talk to and helped me through the tough times. is awesome. Jeff was an excellent companion on the porch.

I enjoyed the lighter dinners like the chicken and rice and the fish. The pasta was excellent. I will miss the food.

Everything you need is here. I loved the HDTV and the DVD player in each room. Housekeeping was great and if felt more like a nice vacation in a great hotel with good friends and good food.

Before I got here, I felt like I had an 85% chance of relapse due to methadone clinic propaganda. I was under the impression that I might never be happy because I had destroyed my opiate receptors. I quickly realized that I could never be happy with drugs in my life. They are a temporary solution to a permanent problem. Now I can clearly see that I caused a lot of pain and suffering to my family and people who cared about me as a result of abusing drugs, and worst of all I was abusing the trust of the people I care about. All that mattered was the drugs. After a little time I came to realized that I was in the 15% of people who continue to stay clean because that was a decision that I made. I felt very empowered and in control of my life, as opposed to feeling like the drugs controlled my life.

Without this medical detoxification process, I highly doubt I could have lived through getting off methadone and benzos. I was taking up to 400 mg of methadone on a daily basis along with 30 mg of Xanax or 10 mg of Klonopin. I felt completely and utterly hopeless and would consistently fall asleep or “nod off” with a cigarette in bed and wake up to large holes in my bedding and clothes. If the drugs wouldn’t have killed me in a year’s time, a fire would. I was damaged physically and financially, and nearly lost everything, including my two stores. When you are on drugs and you want to get clean, no matter how good your intentions, you need help.

Novus not only gave me a clean start, not only gave me hope, it gave me my livelihood and family back. No words could truly express the gratitude I feel. Thank you so much to the Novus staff, and to my family for believing in me. Novus gave me back my life. Thank you so much to every single staff member. They have a saying here… “HOW MANY HAVE WE HELPED TODAY?” You not only helped me, you helped all those who care about me. Thank you so much!
