Philosophy

Stop wasting your time looking for someone to solve your drug problem. Drugs and alcohol are not the problem, they are our solution to the problem. They are how we run from our problems, and how we numb ourselves from how we feel. Your real problem is an underlying issue. This issue will stem from fear, anger, resentment, and past trauma. At Asheville Recovery Center, we will identify your specific underlying issues, help you to solve them, and then teach you how to prevent running from those issues ever again.

They are overly anxious to grab new patients and bill the insurance exorbitant amounts. Then they accuse patients of testing positive for drugs and dump them on the street with nowhere to go. STEER CLEAR OF THESE PEOPLE!!! They do not care about the well being of their patients!

This center was most helpful out of many my son has been to. It taught him some of the skills needed to stay clean that other centers had not. They call and let you know often how the patient is and are very caring about the question you have. I would recommend, especially after my son has been in 5 different facilities before this one. Clayton was a huge help in the process. Thanks to all the staff for their hard work with my son.

I am the parent of a recovering addict, who relapsed after being sober for seven years. Our family has had the opportunity to work with the most recognized professionals in the country. That being said, the Asheville Recovery Team , is different . ARC focuses on the underlying behaviors which cause an addict to use. The team is exceptional and without question, saved our family and son's live. ARC walks the walk using the tenants of tough love, respect, honesty , and accountability. The Asheville Recovery Center is exceptional ! We are forever grateful.

This place not only focuses on helping people remove drugs and alcohol from their lives but also teaches and shows you different ways to improve your total lifestyle. They have all types of activities for every walk of life and really gets into all activities and services that are offered to the clients. During all my time I never saw a weakness at the facility.

My overall experience with Asheville recovery center was extremely positive. It's very different from other treatment centers and the staff all work very hard to accommodate the individual. The owners frequently visit the clinic and lodge and they regularly check in with patients. It felt a lot more like a family environment instead of a clinical rehabilitation facility. The counsellors and group leaders are also very professional and worked with me very closely. Having the residential building up in the mountains was really awesome too. This facility was very strong in the recovery area as a whole. more specifically, they were very good at community building, treatment plan personalization and working one on one with clients.

I love Asheville Recovery Center. Everyone was always glad to help no matter what. I feel so much better than when I got here. I feel like a new person. They make you feel at home and help you with anything you need. Sometimes the communication between staff is confused and we don't get to do what was planned like going to meetings, the gym, and weekend activities.

They exceeded all expectations i had about coming to a treatment center. If you hear any negative comments about this facility it is probably coming from a client who does not want to be here or is not serious about their recovery. I am very glad i found ARC.

My son was at Asheville Recovery center for 60 days inpatient. I cannot say enough good things about this facility. Its a tough decision to finally make that step for help. He also has severe anxiety. They made the process so easy and they immediately took that stress away and made him feel comfortable. It's a very close family-like facility. If you or a loved one needs help, this is the place to go. They truly saved my sons life! They are available for calls 24 hrs a day. The owners and staff are devoted to helping addicts. Many of them have been there themselves. In the past we have looked into other facilities. They seemed a lot like a hospital. Asheville Recovery is not like that. It's a very comfortable and beautiful place. I am so thankful we found them.

First off i have to say, the Owner's are amazing. If not for one of them i would never have found this place. Then, there's the BHT's, the "Techs" that help you at clinical and at the residents. They are AMAZING! I love this place i am so happy that i was treated here. By the best!

I had been to treatment before and was never able to stay clean after leaving. I decided to give recovery another shot and went to Asheville Recovery Center. I had never been to a treatment center like ARC, the entire staff makes recovery appealing. They are all extremely professional, caring, and take recovery seriously. They always went above and beyond for every client. I would highly recommend ARC to any addict who is struggling and genuinely has the desire to get clean. I have almost 7 months clean since making the decision to go to ARC and I have so much gratitude towards the owners, BHT�s, and clinical staff.

My life was saved here, I know I made the decision to go but I�ve tried to get and stay clean before. This was different, and I�m finally sober and HAPPY. The staff felt like family but remained so professional, it felt like they woudnt sleep unless we were all good for the night. Seeing them as all recovering themselves, and how strong and caring they are made me want to be the same. It quickly became home, between the people and the surroundings. I hope to be a part of their team one day, because I truly believe in their program and they saved my life and I want to do this for others.

This was my first time in treatment. The warmth and kindness from the staff was far beyond what I could have ever come to hope for/expect. ARC gave me the necessary tools and confidence to continue to stay sober and for what it�s worth; saved my life at a point I needed saving the most. I slept better than I had in months, are better than I had in a long time, was less agitated because I finally had answers and tools on how to get better. Everyone was very open and honest in discussions and team work was very present. I felt very safe and encouragement and the feeling of being �believed in, was also very very present. The schedules and routines worked out so well and I would trade the experience for anything.

ARC was a beautiful rustic mountain facility in the stunning NC mountains, such a beautiful place for recovery! The staff and clinicians were amazing and so involved in my childs recovery, they are not just worker bees! They were involved in every level of my child�s care , they even came for evening visits and game nights with snacks and goodies for all. They gave my child time to heal and settle in , they gave my child true nurturing and caring. They gave my child the tools and understanding of their addiction and a new sense of self.In a time where a family is broken ARC stepped in and help us heal. So great full __

This treatment facility is recovery based, yet allows clients to practice life skills along with treatment. They provide intense treatment 9-3 Mom-Friday, allow the clients to do their own grocery shopping with provided funds, wash clothing, prepare and cook meals, and venture out for na and as meetings throughout the week. This is a more realistic approach to recovery than being in a sheltered environment which I believe gives our clients a better chance at success in recovery. This is the best facility I have experienced and love and value my job there as a behavioral health technician.
