Novus Medical Detox experiences business growth despite one of the worst U.S. economic periods in nearly a century, and earns number 4436 on Inc. Magazine’s 500|5000 list of fastest growing companies.

Being recognized among other nationally-ranked companies on the [Inc. Magazine] list is beyond encouraging—our entire facility works extremely hard to make the detox process as comfortable for our patients as possible.

Novus Medical Detox, one of the only Florida-based detox centers servicing high-dosage prescription drug abuse patients across the U.S., was recently awarded the prestigious spot on Inc. magazines ‘s Inc. 500|5000 list at number 4436. According to Inc. Magazine, the Inc. 5000 was harder to get into this year than ever in history. In spite of the U.S. economy only growing at a pace of 1.8% in the first quarter of 2013 (1), Novus’ expansion included them on the 2013 list with other powerhouses as Alex and Ani, Living Social, Bojanlges, OtterBox and KT Tape. Inc. Magazine, one of the few major business magazines focused solely for CEOs of fast-growing, private companies, unveiled its annual list of the fastest growing companies in America on August 20, 2013.

Despite the evident struggle the U.S. economy has experienced on the road to recovery after the Great Recession, Novus has managed to maintain steady company growth—the Florida drug detox center recently received accreditation from The Joint Commission and officially met the specific criteria a company must meet in order to be even considered eligible for the Inc. 500|5000 award:

● A company must have generated at least $200,000 in revenue in 2009 and at least $2 million in revenue in 2012.

● Other qualifications include being privately held, for profit, based in the U.S., and independent (not a subsidiary or division of another company).

The fact that Novus has fared so well in a transitioning economy is evidence of the effectiveness of Novus’ medical detox protocol. Novus opened its doors with the purpose of overhauling the detox process to ensure that anyone could overcome prescription drug addiction comfortably. Unlike many other detox programs, Novus pays particular attention to strengthening its patients’ bodies through a proprietary I.V. vitamin cocktail that is tailored to make the detox process as painless as possible and replenish nutrients lost during drug abuse. The vitamin I.V. is an advanced medical finding that has allowed Novus to handle the toughest of drug and alcohol cases—cases that are rejected from other facilities as “too high a risk.”

“Being recognized among other nationally-ranked companies on the [Inc. Magazine] list is beyond encouraging—our entire facility works extremely hard to make the detox process as comfortable for our patients as possible, and that has always been our main goal,” said Novus Executive Director, Kent Runyon. “Any recognition beyond that is unexpected, but is also a definite honor.”

As an Inc. 5000 honoree, Novus Medical Detox now shares a pedigree with Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Jamba Juice, Timberland, Clif Bar, Pandora, Patagonia, Oracle and dozens of other notable recent alumni. Through each evolution, Inc. has sought to recognize and to celebrate the creativity, dedication, and hard work that entrepreneurs put into building their companies.

Being an Inc. 5000 Honoree, Novus is invited to attend the exclusive 32nd Annual Inc. 500|5000 Conference and Awards Ceremony, which is an annual three-day event that brings the nation’s brightest, most successful business minds together. The event will be held October 10-12, 2013, at Gaylord National in Washington, D.C. Novus representatives are looking forward to attending.
