Level Up Your Life

Behavioral Therapies

Thoughts and behaviors determine the quality of your life. We help the men in our treatment centers identify and replace negative habits with positive ones through medical education programs. Clinical behavioral therapies are a large part of that. At Next Step, we use a potent mix of addiction treatment methods to set our residents up for long-term success.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

CBT is used in our treatment programs worldwide to treat addiction and mental health illnesses. We use clinical sessions, exercises, and other CBT techniques to empower our residents to change their lives. Mental health treatment is essential to convert negative energy into a positive one.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy

DBT introduces life-changing skills. Through dialogue, we help our men cope with stress more effectively, develop better interpersonal skills, and ultimately regain control of their lives.

Bringing Joy to Recovery

Recreational Therapies

Nature is calling, saying, “The Road to Recovery can be Fun!” Don’t give up!

We help our residents learn how to experience the joys of life while safe and sober. These skills are embedded to build resiliency to maintain long-term sustainable sobriety. We choose activities that help our men face their fears, stretch their comfort zones, and become more in touch with themselves. We build confidence through our addiction treatment program.

Transitioning isn’t a joyride, but you can approach it like an adventure.

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.

K.W., Family Member

She received her Master’s in Community Counseling in 2004 at Western Carolina University and went on to get her licensure in addictions and mental health counseling.

Small recovery communities, such as hers, are more intimate and more effective in overall client satisfaction and care.
