Mission Statement


Effective Drug Addiction Help for All

Recovery fellowships offer people who struggle with addiction the love, support, community, spiritual connection, and sometimes even the family network that they need to heal from the pain of drinking and drugging. Addiction treatment facilities address the underlying factors that contribute to substance use disorder: mood disorders or mental illness, family of origin dysfunction, trauma, maladjusted coping mechanisms, and social functioning issues. Both approaches treat the same disease in different ways, but they are both equally necessary for long-term recovery from addiction or alcoholism. One of the flaws in drug addiction help in the modern world is that it generally focuses on only one of these two approaches when both are vital for solid and long-lasting recovery from addiction or alcoholism.

Bridging the Gap

The mission of the Asheville Recovery is to bridge the gap between twelve-step-based treatment models and clinical addiction treatment models and offer a center that approaches addiction from both perspectives. We aim to provide a twelve-step model of care that allows clients to participate in local recovery fellowships that encourage accountability, honesty, community, love, intimacy, spirituality, and support. Alongside this approach, we also aim to provide evidence-based clinical care through experienced professionals in order to address the mental and physical needs of our patients. We believe that both of these approaches can be synthesized to create a model that truly works. Twelve-step recovery doesn’t have to be abandoned in favor of therapeutic care, and evidence-based treatment should never be sacrificed for a narrow focus on only twelve-step programs. The mission of Asheville Recovery Center is to give our clients all that they need: the tough love, compassion, connection received from twelve-step fellowships and scientific, evidence-based, clinical support through psychiatric and therapeutic care.
Every human being deserves the chance to recover from the pain and chaos of addiction. They have the right to do so in a supportive but accountable environment, with their confidentiality protected. Every individual also has the right to a treatment plan that is created specifically for their needs, and not to be boxed into a “one-size-fits-all” style of treatment. Each client should be given access to a community of supportive peers as well as to a team of certified, trained, and experienced behavioral health and addiction treatment clinicians. Drug addiction help should combine the tough love necessary to motivate clients with the compassion necessary to reach them. In essence, every individual deserves the chance that the founders of Asheville Treatment Center are so grateful that they had themselves. That’s why we’re here: to give every individual a chance at achieving real, fulfilling recovery by caring for their spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical needs with all of the loving support of the recovery community.

Long-Term Recovery From Addiction

If you’re tired of the detox-treatment-relapse cycle, maybe it’s time for a different approach to drug addiction help. Holistic therapy and group sessions are vital, but they are not enough to truly build a foundation for long-lasting, fulfilling recovery from alcoholism, and addiction. To really mend from addiction- not just physically, but spiritually and emotionally- human beings need connection, fellowship, and care that serves their unique needs. That’s why we provide psychiatric and therapeutic services alongside holistic treatment like and massage and maintain a foundation of a twelve-step model. We keep a small caseload with a high staff-to-client ratio to make sure that every client always has access to individual care that’s tailored to their needs. We also utilize the group dynamic to help our patients create a community that supports each of them and hold them accountable for their choices in recovery.

At Asheville Recovery Center, care isn’t about shuffling clients through pre-made treatment plans or simply providing access to spa-like services. It’s about real recovery because we believe that every human being has the right to be free of addiction and alcoholism. The care we provide is tough at times, but always compassionate. We offer clinical therapy alongside opportunities for spiritual growth and connection. Treatment is intimate and individualized, and at other times done in a group setting to build a healthy community. We approach to care from all of these different aspects because that’s what every client needs: treatment that heals the whole person, from a place of love and understanding.
