Nova Vida Recovery Centre remains OPEN – continuing to offer residential treatment as well
as individual phone call counselling sessions via Facetime, WhatsApp, to help people
suffering from stress, depression, anxiety as well as addiction related problems,
to get through these difficult times
Now in it’s 12th year Nova Vida Recovery Centre has a treatment programme entirely in the English language and all medical, clinical and administrative staff use English as their first language.
The therapy programme is certainly the most important aspect of treatment. If it doesn’t work the risks to the patients are high. Addiction is a killer illness and the programme is the treatment against...
The Clinical Team at Nova Vida pride itself on its philosophy of only treating those patients we know we have the skills and experience to deal with. Although onward referral to other facilities is not...
I have allergies and sensitivities as well as a serious eating disorder among other issues. I looked at other rehabs to go to and they could not fully cater for the allergies and they were big compared to what Nova Vida can offer.
Nova Vida offered individual approach to their recovery programme- as recovery is not a one size fits all which suited me perfectly. Nova Vida is small, beautifully organized in a lovely big house in the Algarve. They have trained nurses and hcp (health care professionals 24/7, the therapy & therapists is good.
I felt safe unlike other establishments I’ve been in where there was back to back big group therapy and not many staff. Nova Vida is totally different and my needs where more than meet - highly recommended life changing.
Thank you for all your kindness, generosity and help over the past 6 weeks. I am very grateful and appreciate all the time, help, insight and healing I have received from, Andrew, Emanuel and Dr Janna.
I am still shocked at his transformation. I got home from work last night at 9.40pm and met him just coming back from the gym. Talk about a miracle - you have done wonders and I can’t thank you all enough.
I really enjoy life now and keeping me busy with stuff I like!!!!
It’s 10 years...wow...I can’t believe I was initially with you guys in 2008 – doesn’t seem possible.
Thank you for giving me this last chance - am desperate to finally make the turnaround.
I also would like to take the opportunity to thank you and Andrew and all your team for everything. We are indeed doing fine and we are most grateful for your efforts.
Please tell anyone interested that I am doing well, 4 years and 6 months sober on 4th October, attending AA meetings, and a great Southeast London AA convention.
I am still sober after 8 years and a month, doing pretty well and now retired.
Things here are going well, dealing with life's ups and downs sober is a new experience every day, living life without alcohol is a blessing.
Generally, we are very happy to follow our dream.
We are caring for each other with the maximum of love and understanding and I am very proud to live the Nova Vida principles happily and successfully.
Last month I even succeeded and quit smoking.
I feel very proud! Everything seems possible since I met you guys! You gave me my life back!
Unfortunately I have experience of other rehabs and that gives me something to compare with.
Nova Vida is by far the best in all aspects. I was a bit daunted by the fact that there were only going to be 5 other patients in treatment with me but within a few days I realised what an advantage it was. Not only did we quickly gel to become one big family but we were also able to get real and honest quickly with each other and that made such a difference in the treatment. Nobody could hide and nobody could get away with anything.
I had been in rehab before and had left no better off than when I went in. Nova Vida was different – they wouldn’t take me!
They explained that it wasn’t because I was too bad or beyond help but that they were not the best place to suit my needs and weren’t going to take my money to leave me in the same position I had been in before. But they knew a place that could help.
I remain forever grateful for their honesty, integrity and their knowledge. They found me a place that catered for my needs and were very experienced in doing so. I am so, so pleased.
Although I only spent a couple of days with the good people of Nova Vida it will forever have a place in my heart. I am now well along the path of recovery and enjoying every moment of it.
...within a week I was in rehab. In the first week I was told I was arrogant, pompous and in denial. By the second week I realised I WAS arrogant and pompous but no longer in denial. The penny had dropped. This was no tick box course that I could pass with my eyes closed so I started to listen, started to get real and dropped the enormous ego that had no place in my life. I’m glad I did. Not only do I now know I can’t drink ever again but I also know the changes I need to make in order to be a better person for my family and for me.
I can’t say rehab was the best experience I have had but it certainly was the most worthwhile. I am now 9 months without drinking, have my pilot’s license back and I have recently flown my first flight for 7 months. On my discharge I thanked everybody at Nova Vida but was told “You did the work”. I thought about that and they were right and it was bloody hard work. It’s the only place I have been to where I have paid and then had to do all the work! But nevertheless without their guidance and professionalism I dread to think where I would be today.
“Now I am back home and beginning to rebuild my marriage and my career. I am enjoying seeing my kids again and enjoying family moments…”
