Real recovery comes from accountability, love, and community – and that is what we offer to every individual who seeks care at Asheville Recovery Center.
The founders of the Asheville Recovery Center have experienced addiction and alcoholism themselves, and today they are grateful to live a life of recovery and to be able to give back to the community. Our drug addiction treatment center was founded on the principle that everyone who suffers from addiction has the right and the ability to achieve long-term recovery if they are given the tools necessary.

At Asheville Recovery Center, you have a safe place to heal and staff members who will walk alongside you at every step of your journey.
Why Choose Us
Founded by People in Recovery, For People in Recovery
Asheville Recovery Center was founded by members of the recovery community who are passionate about helping others achieve the freedom from drugs and alcohol that they have found. With professional and personal backgrounds in recovery, our staff’s approach is different- and it gives struggling clients the chance to explore alcohol addiction treatment options and truly heal.
Partial Hospitalization Program
At Asheville Recovery Center we offer a partial hospitalization program for clients who need post-residential treatment as well as for clients who need primary treatment but are unable to enroll in inpatient programs. Our PHP track offers a variety of therapeutic services and benefits to individuals in early recovery from substance addiction. Our program is full-time, offering all of the clinical hours provided in residential treatment (from 9 am to 5 pm) with the benefit of allowing clients to return home to a structured sober living environment at night. Our 30 day rehab program can vary in length, depending on each clients individual needs. This gives individuals the opportunity to build a community of peers and practice life skills, such as cooking, cleaning, and self-care, while still participating in immersive and intensive clinical addiction and trauma treatment.
Intensive Outpatient Program
During intensive outpatient treatment, clients live at home or in a sober living residence which can help keep them accountable for their recovery commitment. Our staff coordinates with local, reputable sober living homes to ensure that our clients are living in a safe place and that their needs are being met, even when they are not at clinical sessions. This is intended as a step down from our PHP program, so that clients can begin using the tools and skills that they have learned in the outside world while still being in a safe environment. During this time, clients are also encouraged to become involved in local twelve-step fellowships, to find sponsors, and to begin working the steps of recovery through participation in these groups. IOP is a place where clients can process their experiences in twelve-step fellowships and support one another in those individual journeys.
Individuals in our outpatient programs will have the opportunity to meet with their therapist weekly to have individual therapy sessions. Although group therapy and family therapy are also available, individualized therapy sessions allow clients to dive deeper into the underlying trauma that causes addiction.
Group therapy is a widely utilized approach in the addiction and trauma treatment world because of its success in educating and preparing individuals for the world outside of treatment center walls. Group therapy is facilitated by therapists and involves recovering peers coming together to discuss specific topics about addiction.
Addiction is a family disease. It doesn’t just affect the individual habitually using substances; it affects all the people that love that individual as well. The pain of watching a loved one slip down the slope of addiction can stir up unhealthy emotions and reactions. Family counseling services can help your family heal.
Our mission is to help individuals struggling with substance abuse live higher-quality lives by confronting the underlying causes of addiction so healing can begin. We understand addiction affects each individual specifically personally and that cookie cutter treatment is not effective. We create an individual treatment plan for every person that comes into our care.
Traditional forms of therapy, like individualized and group therapy, are shown to be effective throughout treatment. Research and experience have shown the staff at Asheville Recovery Center that alternative methods of holistic therapy also help patients in addiction recovery to heal from their pasts and make way for a better future. We employ Yoga, Meditation, and Tai Chi.
Many people imagine that attending treatment programs for their addiction will be the one cure-all to their addictive lifestyles. At Asheville Recovery Center, we understand that the more treatment an individual receives, including aftercare services, the higher their chance at attaining a lifetime of sobriety and successful recovery.
Experts including the National Institutes of Health and the CDC agree that the best chance for long-term recovery from addiction comes from extended care. Unfortunately, the standard model of treatment often leaves patients without any support after they complete treatment. Continuity of care is one of the most vital aspects of effective treatment, but these programs are scarce.
Asheville Recovery Center was created to bridge that gap. We serve as a long-term, extended care program for patients who need a safe and supportive transition from treatment back to fully independent living. Our program tracks are individualized to fit with each client’s schedule so that they can balance new responsibilities- like sober living and seeking employment- while still having regular clinical treatment and community support.
Our goal is to ensure that each individual who seeks recovery has the tools they need to be successful in every phase of their journey. With our complete program that includes addiction treatment outpatient services and aftercare, clients can confidently enter the next chapter of their recovery and achieve long-term success.
Addiction and alcoholism are complex diseases with elements of physical, emotional, and spiritual illness. Many facilities focus on only recovery from the physical harm of drugs. Other programs tend only to emotional or spiritual needs by providing 12 step facilitation. Comprehensive therapeutic care is an often underutilized approach.
However, at Asheville Recovery Center, we know that real recovery comes from tending to our clients’ needs in every aspect of their lives by addressing underlying mental or emotional disorders, helping them to create healthy routines that include self-care, and facilitating connection with their peers and recovery groups.
That’s why we offer a holistic addiction treatment approach to care that includes a 12 step foundation, clinical therapy including individual counseling, and social and relational skills through community involvement. We don’t want to help clients heal only from the symptoms of addiction; we want to give them the tools to gain whole health and freedom in every aspect of their being so that they can experience fulfilling and joyful lives.
