About Us

Our Mission Statement

Next Step Recovery provides clinically managed residential care to men in early recovery from substance use and co-occuring disorders. We implemant evidence based treatment in a safe environment where men can successfully transition back into society as productive citizens.

Our Five Core Values

Building life-long relationships through: Diversity, Hope, Brotherhood, Compassion and Accountability.

What Is Transitional Living?

You might have heard of halfway or three-quarter houses. However, most people are not quite sure what they are. Hotel, boarding house, homes for recovering addicts?

Next Step Recovery is none of the above. Our transitional living and intensive outpatient programs for men are essential next steps after addictions treatment. Our highly structured programs and clinical support improve the likelihood of a successful long-term recovery. Many of our residents are referred from some of the best addictions treatment centers in the nation.

We are located just minutes from downtown Asheville, a vibrant city famous for its beautiful mountain surroundings, diverse entertainment and recreational opportunities, and strong community of people dedicated to recovery and healthy living.

Who We Serve

Residents choose Next Step Recovery because they want to continue working on their recovery in a safe, supportive and substance-free environment. They are fathers, sons, husbands, brothers, coworkers, students and friends. They are ordinary and extraordinary men struggling to overcome what is often a hidden but all too common disease—one that takes its toll not only on the addict, but also on his family, friends and community.

Fortunately, the disease of addiction is treatable. Next Step Recovery’s structured IOP and transitional living programs are important early steps in any long-term recovery plan. Although our program may vary in length depending on an individual’s needs, a 90-day commitment to our recovery program is required.

Currently, our 12-week IOP is only open to residents of our recovery program, both of which are voluntary. Program eligibility and admission are subject to approval by our admissions team and must satisfy our background check.

Alcohol/Drug Screening

We are committed to providing a supportive, drug- and alcohol-free community to our residents in recovery. The use of alcohol or drugs will result in immediate dismissal. We enforce this policy by administering random daily drug screens, sending urine screens to a lab once a week, and by screening after all passes.

Background Check

To ensure we maintain a safe environment for our residents and staff, all applicants will be subject to a background check and a telephone interview. No applicant will be accepted with a history of violent crimes, arson, assault on a female, or sexual assault charges or convictions.
