Advanced Addiction Rehab
The ReNova Method is a highly advanced form of addiction rehab that is more successful than traditional 12 step addiction treatment.
ReNova works because it addresses all of the root causes of addiction at the same time. ReNova combines several clinically research-based approaches, developed at leading universities, into a powerful integrative model for lasting recovery from alcohol (either abstinence or moderation) and drug abuse.
ReNova is a one-on-one approach between a licensed counselor and a client. ReNova is successful when used alone and can be combined with traditional rehab support groups for those who tend to benefit from group help.
ReNova is also appropriate for Alcohol Moderation Therapy in good candidates for that approach. In such cases ReNova reduced alcohol use to an average of 2-3 drinks per episode from a previous average of 9-21 drinks per episode before use of ReNova.
6/7 clients who used ReNova for alcohol moderation were still moderate at 12 months with many reducing alcohol use to 1-2 drinks per episode by six months following completion of training.
