Our residential recovery community uses a 12-Step focus to structure and encourage peer support, personal growth and development. We believe this approach is very effective for preventing relapse, as well as, for helping residents develop the skills and resources to live a successful and substance-free life. We require all residents to obtain a sponsor and to attend at least 4 AA/NA meetings per week. We also require residents to attend in-house relapse prevention groups, life skills classes, and house meetings.
Residents who participate in the intensive outpatient program are also required to attend three 3-hour group sessions each week and one weekly individual session with our licensed professional addictions counselor. Residents who participate in our substance abuse comprehensive outpatient treatment program attend five days a week for 4 hours.
Residents are required to work, volunteer, or attend school full time if not attending one of our out-patient programs. Learning to balance work with self improvement, personal care, and social obligations is excellent preparation for transitioning back into daily life without drugs and alcohol.
Meals and Laundry
Residents are responsible for purchasing their own groceries and preparing meals other than Tuesday pizza night where one rotating group prepares a meal for the entire community. Laundry facilities are available in all homes. Practicing these life skills strengthens self sufficiency which is essential to the recovery process.
Residents are required to keep their homes, rooms, and bathrooms clean and orderly on a daily basis. Managers will conduct room inspections several times a day to make sure that community service within the homes are being upheld.
NSR of Asheville provides structured supervision by setting curfews and requiring written approval for weekends spent outside the recovery housing. This level of accountability helps residents feel safe and provides the structure necessary to help them succeed in early recovery.
Residents must respect the anonymity of other residents in recovery. Personal or house business is confidential and should not be discussed outside of the weekly house meeting. Personal problems should be discussed privately with the Executive Director, House Manager, Sponsor, or Counselor.
