Asheville Recovery Center

9 Old Burnsville Hill Road, Asheville, North Carolina, 28804
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, 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 are now In-Network with Aetna and Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS)!

  • Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

    Partial Hospitalization Programs with optional housing provide housing along with 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. Asheville Recovery Center's standard length of stay is 30 days, though we always remain flexible to our client's 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.
  • 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.

Rehabs 360 Guide


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.


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.


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.


All 24 individuals polled by to date reported positive and effective experiences. Each alum gave no less than four out of five-star ratings for the facility's treatment effectiveness, the quality of meals, and its accommodations. As a group, most alumni found staff to be caring, friendly, compassionate, and professional, and many praised the facility's accommodations.

“Asheville Recovery Center saved my life,” alum G.S. wrote in a representative five-star review. “I had been to 5 treatment programs before, and nothing helped me like the staff at ARC." Alum Clint added: "They saved my life with their compassion and understanding."


To date, Asheville Recovery Center also has a perfect average rating of five out of five stars from 17 Google reviewers, two of whom were family members who thanked the center for assisting them through an emotionally difficult time. [1] "They were very family, friendly which is key to the healing process for the whole family,” Susan, one of these satisfied parents, wrote. “I would highly recommend Asheville Recovery to anyone serious about recovery.”
