supported treatment & recovery
Nova STAR is about improving the health
and wellbeing of individuals placed under the Substance Addiction
(Compulsory Assessment and Treatment) Act 2017
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.
The service seeks to improve the cognitive capacity of its service-users, accessing them to voluntary treatment. The service provides a brief window of opportunity to save and change lives that have become severely affected by alcohol and other drugs.
The service offers an intensive programme incorporating cognitive remediation, occupational therapy, nursing care, medical and psychological input and regular social interaction with the wider Nova resident population and beyond. The service aims to restore a person’s capacity to make informed decisions about treatment for severe addiction, supporting them to engage in voluntary treatment.
