Asheville Recovery Annual Scholarship

Asheville Recovery Center Logo

At Asheville Recovery Center, we are a recovery center, founded to address the needs for effective treatment through a program that strives to care for the whole individual: mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually.  We aim to ensure that all individuals, regardless of their socioeconomic status, have access to the same academic opportunities. Education is an important element upon which future leaders are made; however, we understand that there are high costs associated with attending college.
