About Us

Our Goal & Mission

The Asheville Recovery Center was founded by members of the recovery community with years of experience working in the addiction treatment field. Through their experience working in behavioral health and substance abuse treatment, they discovered that something was missing from the standard model of addiction treatment commonly found in most facilities. What addiction treatment is missing in the modern world is the intimate, compassionate nature that makes recovery possible. Rather than taking the time to focus on individual patients’ backgrounds, needs, and goals, facilities were letting clients slip through the cracks.

The Asheville Recovery Center was founded to address the need for effective treatment in an intimate, supportive environment, and to bridge the gap between evidence-based therapeutic practice and spiritual and emotional care. The result is a program that aims to care for the whole individual: mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually in a real-world environment that also provides accountability, safety, a good dose of tough love, and a tight-knit, family setting.

The essential elements of an effective treatment center are highly qualified, trained clinicians with experience in addressing the disease of addiction, and an approach of compassion and care for each individual who walks through the doors of the facility. Traditional therapy must be combined with individual care and love in order to truly reach the client. At Asheville Recovery Center, our aim is to provide treatment that’s backed up by evidence and results without ever sacrificing the intimacy necessary to truly connect with our clients.

Our facility was founded by people who truly believe in the power of recovery because they have lived it themselves. From the pain of addiction came the healing of sobriety for our founders, and they are passionate about offering that opportunity to any addict or alcoholic who needs help. Real recovery comes from love, accountability, honesty, and spiritual development, but people often can’t get there without quality clinical treatment. That’s the purpose of Asheville Recovery Center- to provide clinical addiction treatment services without losing sight of what recovery really means. We don’t recover alone; we do it with the support of others.
