Nova is a leading New Zealand NGO and Social Enterprise making life better for those affected by alcohol, drugs and other life challenges.
Nova Trust currently manages three distinct services:
Treatment & Recovery
Our recovery oriented service and programme provides treatment, rehabilitation and supported accommodation for those affected by addiction.
Nova STAR (Supported Treatment and Recovery)
Our Supported Treatment Centre provides services as an ‘Approved Provider’, as part of the Substance Addiction (Compulsory Assessment and Treatment) Act 2017. The service is part of wider models of care operating nationally, offering a residential placement following a medical detoxification and stabilisation of health.
Nova Fresh (Food and Farming)
Our well established Social Enterprise is a thriving horticulture and farming business, which provides Nova service-users the opportunity of developing employment and life skills as part of their programme. The service has been part of Nova since its inception, with recent restructure providing an opportunity for further development, diversification and expansion going forward.
The Trust is based in Canterbury and operates services, from its main site, in a rural setting on the outskirts of Christchurch. We work with both male and female adult service-users, who can be referred from across New Zealand Aotearoa.
