Start your journey to recovery


The name Nova Vida reflects our goal for every patient to help them begin a new life. Our programme design incorporates the best of traditional and progressive treatment programmes offered around the globe. It is constantly up-dated reflecting new research as well as our own experiences. Our goal is to offer you and your family high quality compassionate and effective care at an affordable price. If we feel we cannot help you we will help you identify a place that can from our extensive experience of many other facilities around the world.

Established in February 2007 we offer treatment for chemical and behavioural addictions, as well as related and underlying issues and illnesses. The beautiful setting of the Algarve creates an atmosphere of peace and tranquillity, which contributes to the healing environment and provides patients with a unique opportunity to start the process of recovery.

For decades individuals in Europe travelled the world in search of successful and affordable treatment. The long journey away from home separated travellers from essential familial and social support systems but this separation from loved ones is not conducive to recovery. Now it is possible to enter treatment close to home and we encourage family members to visit regularly and participate in our family programme.

Travel to the Algarve is less than three hours away from most airports in Western Europe and is less than one third of the time it takes to reach treatment centres in the USA , South Africa and Thailand. We will welcome you at the airport with the traditional gracious warmth of southern Portugal. A staff member will greet you to help make your transition to our Centre stress-free. It is easy to become lost in the bigger treatment centres and consequently, more likely to avoid the psychological depth of work necessary for a successful outcome. Nova Vida, with a total of seven beds, promises to offer individualised attention and care within a small group setting.

Nova Vida is a privately owned treatment centre for addictions and related illnesses. We only work with referrers where we are confident that adequate support is available after treatment. The primary language spoken at Nova Vida is English.

We are members of EATA (European Association for the Treatment of Addiction) and work together with other treatment facilities around the world to ensure we find the right treatment for you.
