We are pleased to be offering Addiction Therapies and Programs for men that have been proven to work. Our facility offers access to a variety of addiction therapies for men while they reside at their Sober Living Homes. Learn more here: https://NSRofAsheville.org/addiction-therapy/.

One of the programs offered is our 12 Steps Therapy for Drugs & Alcohol Addiction Treatment. We incorporate the 12 Steps for Sustainable Sobriety and it has helped more people recovering from addiction than perhaps any other framework today. It is used around the world to help individuals fight a wide range of addictions. Here at NSR of Asheville, it plays an integral part in what we do. The program is designed to provide a pathway along the journey.

Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) is another option available. CBT is often successful as it has been shown that addiction has neurological and psychological causes. CBT is one of the most trusted forms of clinical therapy in use today. It is used to help people in recovery identify unhealthy thoughts and behavior patterns. This, in turn, empowers them to transform these negative habits and create a better life. Learn more here: https://NSRofAsheville.org/addiction-treatment-program/.

We offer Dialectical Behavior Therapy for Drugs & Alcohol Addiction Treatment. It is widely known that acceptance and change are crucial to recovery. Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) builds on the base of CBT to help develop skills for a happy, healthy life. We help men develop the emotional resilience they need to thrive. This includes learning techniques and skills such as mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, distress tolerance, and more. DBT skills help men cope with life’s highs and lows more successfully.

Adventure Programs are also utilized. The issue that most face after this is what to do next, and more often than not, their early recovery tends to feel desolate and hopeless. River rafting, paintball, and high ropes remind the men in our programs that it is possible to feel truly alive without the use of drugs and alcohol. In short, this is a fun way to fight addiction. Yoga, Meditation, and Martial Arts are used to teach and develop discipline and emotional control to improve quality of life. As these are skills that can be developed by almost anyone, all that is required is real-world application. Yoga, meditation, and martial arts help the residents develop into stronger men as well, and this is especially vital given that emotional regulation is a priceless skill. Our program helps young men equip themselves with this and other skills. The program is designed to empower young men to bring a positive future into focus. 

Addiction often coincides with other issues. For anyone suffering from co-occurring disorders, dual diagnosis is crucial. Addiction can do plenty of damage on its own, but paired with other mental illnesses, it can completely ruin lives. Here at NSR of Asheville, the staff gives all mental conditions the respect they deserve. A combination of dual diagnosis and holistic treatment leads to sustainable sobriety. We provide the option for an Extended Care & a Sober Living Environment. The caring community of Peer Support Specialists are proudly committed to the residents’ success. The safe neighborhood, peaceful mountain atmosphere, and highly structured programs ensure the best opportunity possible for long-term recovery. Many residents need more than just a place to sleep, they need Extended Care to give them the best opportunity for long-term success. If an individual is coming back from inpatient treatment, detox, or even from an outpatient program, they are surrounded by a peaceful atmosphere — and our staff provides the needed dedication and helps the residents towards a healthy lifestyle with long-term recovery.

A former clients often provide testimony to the center’s success. J.C., a beloved client, states on the website that, “Before coming to NSR of Asheville, my life was in tatters. I felt defeated. The first day I arrived, 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 their guidance.”
