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. We now accept In Network Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS)

Specialization

  • Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
    Partial Hospitalization Programs with optional housing provide housing, (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term PHP treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.
  • Intensive Outpatient
    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.
  • 12-Step
    The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
    EMDR is a highly specific, research-validated form of therapy that can help people overcome traumatic stress, anxiety and depression. With EMDR, a trained practitioner uses bilateral stimulation, eye movement and touch to stimulate parts of the brain as a patient recounts certain experiences and memories as a way to more thoroughly process uncomfortable, painful feelings.
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
    The focus of cognitive behavioral therapy (also called CBT) is helping people to understand the thoughts and emotions that underlie their addiction with the goal of learning new, healthier and more productive ways to understand and express themselves.
  • Holistic Therapy
    Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.
  • Creative Arts Therapy
    Writing, making art or engaging in theater can be deeply therapeutic for people working to recover from addiction. Many facilities offer one or several forms of creative arts therapy as a way to help patients learn to express their feelings in productive ways.
  • Aftercare Support
    Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.
  • Individual Therapy
    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.
  • Process Abuse Treatment
    Not all addictions involve mood-altering chemicals. The term “process addiction” describes the unhealthy use of behaviors (including eating, gambling, sexual activity, shopping, internet use, etc.) that has spiraled out of control and into the realm of addiction.
  • Individualized Treatment
    Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.
  • Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment
    These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.
  • Family Program
    Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.
  • Client & Family Support Groups
    Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.

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.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

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.

    This center was most helpful out of many my son has been to. It taught him some of the skills needed to stay clean that other centers had not. They call and let you know often how the patient is and are very caring about the question you have. I would recommend, especially after my son has been in 5 different facilities before this one. Clayton was a huge help in the process. Thanks to all the staff for their hard work with my son.
