About Us

Nova Counseling Services is a State of Wisconsin-licensed provider of medically monitored treatment for people suffering from alcoholism and other drug addictions. We exist to provide the highest quality care at the lowest possible cost to chemically dependent persons and their families.

Treatment at Nova is for individuals who have lost control of their lives and need a safe, structured environment to learn about their addiction. At Nova, we provide therapy to change the behaviors that accompany chemical dependency. Our compassionate, dedicated staff includes counselors who have personally suffered from addiction.

Nova provides addiction treatment in a variety of ways, including residential treatment, intensive outpatient treatment, a 90-day halfway house (Terra Program) and other elements of aftercare. Our Terra Program is licensed as a residential transitional program.

For almost three decades, Nova has been grounded in the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous philosophy and believes it is the surest way to recover from the disease of addiction. Education about the illness, knowledge of the 12 Steps, and caring feedback are the cornerstones for change.


In 1982, Nova opened its doors as the first residential treatment center in Wisconsin. It was a milestone because, prior to that time, addiction recovery services were delivered in hospital settings at a much greater cost.

In September of 2004 Nova built and moved into a new facility. Located in Oshkosh, Wis., Nova is centrally positioned between Milwaukee and Green Bay, with easy access from Highway 41. Nova has become a regional recovery center, attracting clients from Northern Illinois, the Chicago area as well as the upper Midwest.
