Extended Care & Sober Living Program for Men

Making Sobriety Sustainable

Compassionate Clinical Care for Men in Early Recovery

We proudly offer one of Asheville’s best addiction treatment programs for men.  We combine sober living and IOP for a unique extended care model.  The result: personal transformation and recovery.

Next Step uses community, structure, and compassion to provide the continuum of care necessary for sustainable recovery.  We help men make lifelong changes that lead to healthier relationships, daily habits, and overall well-being.

Our program is proof that freedom from addiction is not only possible, it’s happening now—in the mountains of Western North Carolina.

Our Addiction Treatment Programs







What They Say About Us

"Before coming to Next Step Recovery, my life was in tatters. I felt defeated. The first day I arrived at Next Step, I was swinging. I was so angry. I was lost, hurt, and confused. I was living in paralyzing fear; yet, this place, these people, accepted me... They have shown me that a new life is possible. The staff here helps me grow into a better man every day... I owe the person I am today to Next Step's guidance."

J.C., Beloved Client

"Next Step Recovery is a safe place with people I not only consider a great staff, but also have come to love as family. They treated me with love, compassion, and respect. They helped me see things I couldn't; helped me grow as a person and changed my perspective on many topics. The people at Next Step will forever hold a special place in my heart."

B.D., Beloved Resident

“This is the longest I have ever been clean and Next Step is the reason for that. It has provided me with a safe place to begin my recovery”

T.A., Beloved Resident

"IOP was the perfect activity to both keep my week busy while also being able to fully focus on my recovery. The top notch staff members and therapists made this 12 week program one I will take with me wherever I go."

L.M., Beloved Resident

"I am so grateful for Nextstep and all the staff members. This is definitely the place I needed to come after I got out of treatment. Here I got connected to the recovery community in Asheville and made some good friends here at the houses. Nextstep has not only taught me what I need to do to stay clean but I have learned so many life lessons while I was here. I will stay in contact with Nextstep because this place has given me my life back and for that I am so grateful!"

Z.A., Beloved Resident

"Next Step Recovery was exactly what I needed in the early stages of my recovery! I spent so many years of my life hiding behind a bottle, and I couldn’t take it anymore! Susan and her staff helped me to get back on my feet and start the process moving on and loving life without the use of alcohol or drugs. After my 3 months here with next step, I chose to stay in Asheville and continue to work on my self, with their guidance. I couldn’t imagine my life today if I was still stuck in my old ways, Thank you Next Step Recovery!"

Z.B., Beloved Client

"You may have to leave family, friends and your old life behind as you start recovery. Next Step provides not only a home for you to start over, it gives you a spiritual cleansing. From the staff to my housemates, Next Step has brought a new meaning to recovery. If you let them work with you, you'll find more than a recovery house, you'll find yourself again."

M.R.K., Beloved Resident

My son completed 3 months of sober living at Next Steps Recovery, surrounded by kind, caring and compassionate staff, with all the skill sets required of true professionals to guide and assist him in living a productive, healthy , sober and happy life. He flourished and started to smile and enjoy life again during those three months. He now is starting to build a career for himself and is enjoying the normal things in life that had been missing for so many years. As a family we have been blessed to have been connected with Next Step Recovery. Thank you.

A Program Built to Help Men Make Sobriety Sustainable

Recovery is the Real Adventure.

Next Step Recovery extended care specializes in rehab aftercare and post-detox support programs.  We offer the support, encouragement, and ongoing treatment men need to make long lasting changes.

The journey back from the depths of addiction is never an easy one.  But the path is always worth taking.  A life of meaning and value is yours to reclaim.

Take your Next Step today.

Next Step strives to be ones of the best Men’s Recovery Programs in Asheville.  For more than a decade, we’ve been helping men leave addiction behind for good.

Like most mental health issues, addiction is a multi-faceted problem.  Co-occurring Disorders are common.  Men’s issues add even more variables.  At Next Step, we build a comradery in recovery that sustains success.


Next Step offers a combination of proven treatment methods.  We feature a 12 Steps Program, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy.

Beyond that, we use Adventure Therapy to help bring the joy to the recovery process.  Then, we add Yoga, Meditation, and Martial Arts to help replace old habits with healthy new ones and reconnect our men with who they are.


Next Step is built on a foundation of true understanding.  We don’t just treat addiction, we’ve lived it.  This gives us unique insights into how recovery feels from the inside out.

The men in our program form bonds of brotherhood and true friendship.  More often than not, these bonds extend beyond our residents and into our staff.  More than just a sober living program: we are a family.


For those climbing back from addiction, Asheville provides the perfect backdrop for life’s next chapter.  Let the place and its people support and inspire you.

There are few places as beautiful as the mountains of Western North Carolina.  But what’s more, there may not be anywhere with as beautiful a community as Asheville, North Carolina.
