Real recovery comes from accountability, love, and community- and that is what we offer to every individual who seeks care at Asheville.
Our mission is to help individuals struggling with substance abuse live higher quality lives by confronting underlying causes of addiction so healing can commence. Asheville Recovery Center is one of many addiction treatment centers that understands addiction affects each individual specifically and personally.
Individuals in our outpatient programs will have the opportunity to meet with a therapist weekly to have individual therapy sessions. Although group therapy and family therapy are also available, individualized therapy sessions dive deeper into the underlying causes of addiction.
Group therapy is a widely utilized approach in the addiction treatment world because of its success in educating and preparing individuals for the world outside of treatment center walls. Group therapy is conducted by therapists and involves recovering peers coming together to discuss specific topics about addiction.
Addiction is a family disease. It doesn’t just affect the individual habitually using substances, but all the people that love that individual as well. Throughout active addiction, loved ones of addicted individuals are lied to, neglected, and taken advantage of. On the other hand, the pain of watching a loved one slip down the slope of addiction can stir up unhealthy emotions and reactions.
Many people imagine that attending treatment programs for their addiction will be the one cure-all to their addictive lifestyles. Unfortunately, many find out that a quick stay at a residential facility or attending an IOP is not enough treatment and end up relapsing in early recovery. At Asheville Recovery Center, we understand that the more treatment an individual receives, the higher their chance at attaining a lifetime of sobriety and a successful recovery.
Traditional forms of therapy, like individualized and group therapy, are shown to be effective throughout treatment. But, research and experience have shown the staff at Asheville Recovery Center that alternative methods of therapy also help patients in addiction recovery to heal from their pasts and make way for a better future.
There are many aspects of addiction which require addressing during an individual’s time in treatment. If the underlying causes of addiction are not identified and confronted, when these issues arise outside of treatment walls, recovering individuals may be at risk for relapsing and, in turn, overdosing.

Our Goal & Mission
Our goal is to provide a safe place of healing for everyone who desires freedom from addiction. We strive to create a tight-knit community founded in love and support for each other’s recovery journeys. With clinical care, twelve-step facilitation, and fellowship, we help clients create the sober lives they deserve.
Why Choose Asheville?
The Asheville Recovery Center was founded by members of the recovery community who are passionate about helping others achieve the freedom from drugs and alcohol that they have found. With professional and personal backgrounds in recovery, our staff’s approach is different- and it gives struggling clients the chance to truly heal.
A Personal Connection
The founders of the Asheville Recovery Program have experienced addiction and alcoholism themselves, and today they are grateful to live a life of recovery and to be able to give back to the community. Our facility was founded on the principle that everyone who suffers from addiction has the right and the ability to achieve long-term recovery if they are given the tools necessary.
That’s why treatment at Asheville utilizes evidence-based therapeutic methods alongside elements of twelve-step fellowships, such as accountability, tough love, and fellowship.
We have taken what gave us the freedom from addiction we so desperately sought at the beginning of our journeys and molded it into a program that truly works. Everything we do comes from a deep passion for helping others who suffer from addiction- we truly care about each of our patients as a part of our family in recovery. At Asheville, you have a safe place to heal and staff members who will walk alongside you at every step of your journey.
Continuity of Care
Experts including the National Institutes of Health and the CDC agree that the best chance for long-term recovery from addiction comes from extended care. Unfortunately, the standard model of treatment often leaves patients without any support after they complete residential treatment. Continuity of care is one of the most vital aspects of effective treatment, but these programs are scarce.
Asheville Recovery Center was created to bridge that gap. We serve as a long-term, extended care program for patients who need a safe and supportive transition from residential treatment back to fully independent living. Our program tracks are individualized to fit with each client’s schedule so that they can balance new responsibilities- like sober living and seeking employment- while still having regular clinical treatment and community support.
Our goal is to ensure that each individual who seeks recovery has the tools they need to be successful in every phase of their journey. With our complete treatment program including residential treatment, outpatient services, and aftercare clients can confidently enter the next chapter of their recovery and achieve long-term success.
Addiction and alcoholism are complex diseases with elements of physical, emotional, and spiritual illness. Many facilities focus only on one aspect of this disease- helping clients recover from the physical harm of drugs, or tending only to their emotional or spiritual needs by providing twelve-step facilitation without comprehensive therapeutic care.
At Asheville, however, we know that real recovery comes from tending to our clients’ needs in every aspect of their lives- from addressing underlying mental or emotional disorders, helping them to create healthy routines that include self-care, and facilitating connection with their peers and recovery groups.
That’s why we offer a holistic approach to care that includes a twelve-step based foundation, clinical therapy including individual counseling, physical modes of healing like acupuncture and yoga, and work on social and relational skills through community involvement. We don’t want to help clients only heal from the symptoms of addiction; we want to give them the tools to gain whole health and freedom in every aspect of their being so that they can experience fulfilling and joyful lives.
