With the approval rating of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) at an all-time low of 31 percent (1), the future of healthcare as it is currently known is in question. But despite many healthcare providers opposing the reform (2),Novus Medical Detox, one of the only Florida-based detox centers serving high-dosage drug abuse patients, embraced and prepared for the changes by expanding its accommodations, as well as its staff. To help maintain successful operations throughout the shaky rollout of the ACA, Novus has also announced the recent hire of Manuel “Manny” Correa as Novus’ new Clinical Supervisor.

Manuel joins Novus after working as a program director with Operation PAR, which provides integrated addiction and mental health services at its various sites throughout South Florida. In addition to a Master of Science in Counseling Psychology, Manuel has earned the titles of Certified Addictions Professional, Certified Mental Health Professional and Certified E-Therapist throughout his 23 years of experience working in government and private agencies. His addiction field knowledge, resulting from his work with various populations and medical modalities, includes detoxification, inpatient, outpatient, residential and research.

“Manuel is skilled in clinical leadership—he encompasses all of the qualities needed to guide Novus’ expanding team,” said Kent Runyon, Novus Executive Director. “I’m confident that he will be a positive addition to our facility and will become a valuable staff member.”

Manuel’s position will help Novus maintain the stability needed to navigate the ongoing developments in the healthcare industry. He will play a key role in recruiting, hiring and developing this team of professionals to carry out Novus’ mission. In addition, he will provide direct care and counseling to patients who are detoxing and planning their life free of addictive substances. Manuel comes to Novus drawn by its mission to help others through its state-of-the-art medical practices, proprietary vitamin protocols and individualized treatment plans, and to pursue excellence in the field of recovery. With a 90% completion rate of people who start their medical detox at the facility, Novus pays particular attention to strengthening their patients’ bodies through their branded I.V. vitamin cocktail, which is tailored to each patient to make the detox process as painless as possible.

Novus provides its patients with newfound respect and care for their total health, making them physically, emotionally and mentally stronger. Novus’ programs are tailored to each individual’s needs, allowing Novus to accept high-dose prescription drug abuse cases that are turned down by other facilities for being “too high a risk.” Novus advises those who are dependent on prescription drugs to seek out safe, medically-supervised detox programs, which are characterized by the following:

●Individualized programs and one-on-one medical attention;
●Use of a minimal amount of medications that make detox comfortable and safe;
●A stress-free environment that uses natural supplements whenever possible; and
●24/7 access to nursing care and withdrawal specialist assistance.

With his extensive leadership and recovery experience, Manuel is considered a crucial and respected asset to the facility.
