Men's Addiction Treatment Center

Men suffering from drug addiction face unique challenges.

These challenges are best addressed with unique solutions. At Next Step Recovery of Asheville, we help men reclaim lives of meaning, value, and responsibility.

Our addiction treatment programs at our men’s addiction treatment center facilitate the transition from detox or inpatient rehab to lifelong self-sufficiency. We use a combination of clinical therapy, dual diagnosis treatment, structure, and community to establish order amidst the mental chaos of addiction recovery.

As we say:

“Recovery is the Real Adventure.”

We aim to be companions and guides along the journey’s path.

The Support Men in Recovery Need to Get Their Life Back On Track

Every person struggling with substance use disorder like alcohol abuse has a story.

Still, there are many things we know about addiction. One of those is that addiction is best looked at as a lifelong battle.

Our men’s addiction treatment center program helps men re-adapt to a sober lifestyle. Many, after their medication-assisted treatment, suffer from a feeling of being post-detox directionless. We combat that with a sense of camaraderie and a daily routine that helps reestablish a regular rhythm, and we always provide ongoing clinical support.

Our goal is to equip men with the tools for happy, healthy lives.

The fight against addiction is never easy. But you don’t have to handle it alone. At Next Step men’s addiction treatment center, you’ll find the friends, mentors, and role models you need to beat addiction for good.

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.

Camaraderie, Companionship, & Compassion

No one should be involved in battling addiction alone because a medication-assisted men’s addiction treatment center can handle all issues, including mental illness. Next Step Recovery’s substance abuse experts are available.

Support is crucial to early recovery in a men’s rehab program. We work hard to make it a team effort with our group therapy.

This is where the NSR of Asheville sets itself apart. Our program equips men struggling with addiction with a support network that is going through the same thing they are going through and with staff members that have battled with addiction, too. We also provide examples of healthy life after addiction.

And, of course, our recovery community revolves around clinical care crucial to early recovery.

Compassion infuses everything we do.

We use a variety of strategies at our men’s rehab center, from structured daily life to adventure therapy to build bonds that help sustain long-term recovery.

The difference shows in our results.

From Detox to Sustainable Sobriety

We use this model because it works.

There are many treatment centers for men in Asheville. Our long-term focus sets us apart.

We offer both access to IOP and Sober Living programs. 

These go beyond the 30, 60, and 90-day solutions to make a habit out of a healthy lifestyle.

This is where the real work can begin, but it never truly ends. At Next Step Recovery, men learn the skills to integrate newfound sobriety into real life. Beyond our programs, they make lasting friendships that help support healthy choices for years.

A life of self-sufficiency is the ultimate goal. Choose a long-term addiction treatment program for men built around that goal.

Take the Next Step from addiction to a life of meaning and solve your mental health issue today.
