Insight Human Services - Robert S. Swain Recovery Center Philosophy
Treatment at Swain Recovery Center is holistic and focused on healing the mind, body and spirit. The rehab offers residential and outpatient services designed to help clients acknowledge, accept and understand their relationship with disease of addiction, as well as improve their self-esteem and return to a substance-free life. Treatment modalities include motivational interviewing, relapse prevention therapy, motivational enhancement therapy, the Seven Challenges and the Matrix Model.
Areas of Specialization
This term describes one-on-one therapy, in which a patient and trained counselor, social worker, psychologist or psychiatrist meets privately with a patient to discuss challenges related to lifestyle, work, family and romantic relationships that may have contributed to the development of an addiction.
Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.

ABOUT INSIGHT HUMAN SERVICES – ROBERT S. SWAIN RECOVERY CENTER
Located 15 miles east of Asheville in Black Mountain, N.C., the Robert S. Swain Recovery Center provides residential treatment for adults and adolescents struggling with substance abuse and mental health issues. Part of Insight Human Services, Inc., a nonprofit organization that serves more than 60 counties in North Carolina, Swain Recovery Center offers treatment that incorporates evidence-based practices and therapies.
Priority admission is given to pregnant women, intravenous drug users, and individuals who are HIV positive. Length of stay is 42 days for adults and 90 days for adolescents.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Based on the belief that men and women relate and respond differently to drugs and alcohol, Swain Recovery Center offers gender-specific programming for its adult clients. Their treatment begins with a series of biological, psychological and social evaluations, as well as psychiatric care, to address co-occurring issues. Additionally, residents are encouraged to partake in individual, family, and group therapy, addiction education, expressive arts, nature and recreation therapy, and 12-step based classes.
For adolescents, treatment centers around the evidence-based Seven Challenges, a program designed for this age group that helps clients make thoughtful decisions. Swain Recovery Center offers an in-house educational program in which individuals spend 10 hours per week in school alongside a licensed teacher. Those over the age of 16 have the option to work toward receiving their G.E.D and earning their degree while in treatment.
There is limited information on the facility’s website regarding the staff’s credentials beyond noting that Swain Recovery Center has its own clinical director. Nevertheless, an anonymous reviewer on CiteHealth referred to the 24 hours a day staff as “amazing” and “incredible” and claimed that “they understand the problems clients have coming in.”
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Swain Recovery Center, which shares campus grounds with the Black Mountain Neuro-Medical Treatment Center, can accommodate a total of 22 residents (18 adults and four adolescents).
