Dr. William Loving graduated from the University of Texas, Medical Branch at Galveston in 1974. After a psychiatric residency at Austin State Hospital, he began practicing neuropsychiatry. Five years later he joined Neuropsychiatric Associates of Austin, a group practice headed by Dr. Stuart Nemir. Dr. Nemir was the first doctor in Austin to start a private 28-day program for drug and alcohol treatment. Later he started the first intensive outpatient program in Austin, which was also one of the first in the country. Dr. Nemir recruited Dr. Loving to help in these programs, and eventually Dr. Loving became the medical director of both. Thus began his interest in the field of chemical dependency and treating alcoholics and addicts. During those years he worked closely with Dr. Nemir and Ulysses "Mac" McLester, LMSW-ACP, who was also a well-known expert in chemical dependency. For over twenty-five years Dr. Loving has treated psychiatric patients, chemically-dependent patients, and also patients with both psychiatric and chemical dependency problems , known as "dual diagnosis". Dr. Loving is enthusiastic about devoting his full energy to the treatment of people with the disease of chemical dependency.

Reviews at a Glance
- Dual Diagnosis: Addiction and Mental Health
NOVA’s clinical team includes two psychiatrists, clinicians trained in the treatment of clients with multiple needs. Depression, anxiety, PTSD and bi-polar disorders can all contribute to long-term addiction issues. We use psychotherapeutic methods when prescribing medication and performing therapy, with a strong understanding of how addiction and mental health problems can overlap during the recovery process. We carefully guide these clients through their treatment, arming them with the proper tools to overcome all of their issues, and encouraging them to make use of those tools as they proceed.
- Chronic Relapse
The NOVA team also specializes in treatment for clients who suffer from chronic relapse. We often find that clients who continue to struggle with their recovery have needs related to past experiences or behaviors that have never been addressed or may not have been fully resolved. We will help you examine the barriers that are holding you back from a full recovery, and guide and support you as you begin to work through them. We will look at your previous recovery experiences, where you have struggled in them, and what we can assist you in changing to create a new experience.
