Asheville Recovery Center Philosophy
Stop wasting your time looking for someone to solve your drug problem. Drugs and alcohol are not the problem, they are our solution to the problem. They are how we run from our problems, and how we numb ourselves from how we feel.
Your real problem is an underlying issue. This issue will stem from fear, anger, resentment, and past trauma.
At Asheville Recovery Center, we will identify your specific underlying issues, help you to solve them, and then teach you how to prevent running from those issues ever again.
Areas of Specialization
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.
Patients who undergo intensive outpatient treatment continue to live at home and sometimes go to school or work while participating in a highly structured treatment protocol that is focused on ending substance abuse. Programs vary in terms of how much treatment patients receive, how often and for how long. Some facilities design individualized intensive outpatient treatment programs.

ABOUT ASHEVILLE RECOVERY CENTER
The Asheville Recovery Center is a full-service holistic drug and alcohol addiction treatment facility located in the mountains of Asheville, N.C. Through gender-specific residential and outpatient-based levels of care, the center provides programming that is individualized, comprehensive, and family-oriented. According to a 2016 SAMHSA survey, the center is was one of 16 percent of facilities in the state to provide long-term, non-hospital residential care.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Clients begin the treatment process with a series of medical and psychological evaluations to determine their recovery needs. Individuals seeking the structure and support of a 24-hour, distraction-free environment have access to 30 to 40 days of gender-separate residential treatment. If necessary, the facility can provide a referral for medical detox with one of its partnering organizations before admission.
The Asheville Recovery Center's residential program involves individual, group, and family therapy, as well as a range of holistic therapies, such as yoga, meditation, and acupuncture. Programming also utilizes rapid resolution therapy to help identify and address trauma-related concerns.
For individuals looking for a more flexible treatment option that supports living off-site, Asheville Recovery Center operates a partial hospitalization program (PHP) and intensive outpatient program (IOP). The PHP has all the services of residential care but ends each day at 5 p.m. The IOP takes place a few hours each day, a few days each week, allowing participants the opportunity to continue working or attend school.
These outpatient programs are also designed as an aftercare service for graduates of residential treatment. In addition, the center encourages program graduates to transition into a sober living home whenever possible.
The leadership team at Asheville Recovery Center includes a medical director and a master’s level social worker. Case managers and certified substance abuse counselors are also on staff. The facility boasts a staff-to-client ratio of 2:1.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Participants of residential treatment stay in gender-separate housing. Pictures published on the center’s website depict a ranch-like building with double-occupancy bedrooms, a full kitchen, classrooms, and vegetable gardens.
