Relapse Prevention & Aftercare Support

Make no mistake, recovery is perhaps one of the most significant emotional and financial investments an individual or family will ever have to make. Estimates on the average cost of 30-day residential addiction treatment programs range from $20,000 to $30,000, with some facilities offering fewer services at lower prices and well-known treatment centers costing as much as $60,000.

Without long-term structured support, relapse is likely and costly, with some estimates putting the real cost of recovery between $100,000 and $250,000.

Okay. Pause. Take a breath. We know…

We know the cost of addiction and recovery is too high. We know long-term early recovery support has to be more affordable and effective to help the estimated 1 in 3 families (85 million people) who are impacted by addiction.

Take the Next Step Toward Sustainable Recovery

Next Step Recovery’s highly structured transitional living and intensive outpatient programs are not only sustainable investments, they are an incredible value for long-term recovery support.

For approximately half of the cost of an average 30-day inpatient program, our residents can receive a full year of structured recovery support in a safe, transitional living environment with daily onsite access to addictions specialists, life skills training, employment assistance, 12-step support, adventure therapy, and a strong community of peers in recovery.

Next Step Recovery is one the best and most affordable ways to protect your investment in treatment while investing in a sustainable long-term recovery (the best investment of all).

Support for Long Term Addiction Recovery

At Next Step, we recommend a minimum stay of 3 months up to 18 months to help residents successfully navigate the critical early recovery period while they rebuild and take responsibility for their lives, their work, their relationships and their lifestyle.

Many of our residents choose to stay with us for a year or more, recognizing the value of our program and services when compared to normal monthly living expenses and the potentially devastating financial and emotional costs of relapsing and active addiction.

We encourage you to read the personal testimonials from the hundreds of men who have successfully completed our program.

The Cost of Addiction & Relapse Cycles

When considering the cost of recovery options, it’s important to remember the cost of untreated addiction. It’s much higher than you may think.

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the annual cost of drug and alcohol addiction in the United States is $417 billion, which includes the cost of crime, lost work productivity and health care.

And then there’s the irreplaceable cost of lives lost to addiction. Nearly 132,000 Americans die annually from alcohol-related causes and drug overdoses. That’s an average of 360 lives per day, making addiction one of our nation’s leading preventable causes of death (far surpassing traffic accidents, gun violence and falls combined).

If Not Now, When?

In early recovery, timing and support are everything.

If you are considering the next step after in-patient treatment, we encourage you to contact our recovery specialists to discuss how Next Step can support your long-term recovery goals and your investment.

"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."

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.
