"I had a great experience at next step after completing a 90 day rehab in Mississippi. The staff and programs were very helpful and just what I needed to transition. With so many sober living or halfway house options out there it’s hard to know who is out for YOUR best interest. next step truly cares about the individual and long term recovery. Very grateful For my time there."

"Nearly six years ago I came to Next Step in Asheville and it helped provide an excellent foundation for my early recovery. Terry and Susan and the staff there provided compassion, structure, and accountability and individualized care and attention. Whether it was the connection and community, groups, life skills learned, or counseling provided at Next Step I couldn’t be more grateful to be a part of the NSR family."

"Next Step Recovery (NSR) has a proven track record of success in Asheville, NC. Several of my friends (aka Recovery Warriors) have some ties to NSR, whether they were residents or staff. I was first connected with NSR whenever we were doing a Men's Recovery Literature Study and when I met Susan Stader, my life changed. Susan immediately became "Mama Bear" to me just like the rest of the guys, both residents and staff. She allowed me to intern there while I was finishing up my college degree and then she hired me on as a case manager and group facilitator. Susan continued to mentor me and supervise me until I got fully registered as a Certified Counselor and she advocated for me as well. I worked at NSR for nearly 7 years and I am proud to say that I worked there. Not all treatment programs operate with integrity but NSR has the highest level of excellence if you ask me. While working there I saw men mature and evolve into productive members of society and I highly recommend NSR for men who need structure in early recovery."

Levels of care:

Intensive Outpatient:
Their optional 12-week intensive outpatient program provides the perfect bridge from inpatient treatment to sober living and offers extra clinical support for individuals with complicated addictions histories, multiple relapses or little experience in recovery. Currently, their IOP is only open to our sober living program residents to ensure program quality, continuity and safety.

Aftercare Support:
Completing a drug or alcohol rehab program shouldn't spell the end of substance abuse treatment. Aftercare involves making a sustainable plan for recovery, including ongoing support. This can include sober living arrangements like halfway houses, career counseling, and setting a patient up with community programs like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous (NA).

Sober Living Homes:
Sober Living Houses (SLHs), aka sober homes or halfway houses, are safe, substance-free, supportive living facilities for those recovering from substance abuse. Ideal for those who've just been through inpatient or outpatient treatment, SLHs are supervised environments with rules that support sobriety, such as curfews, shared chores, and therapeutic meetings. Residents are also often trained on life skills and coping skills to make it easier to transition into society. SLHs also provide a strong sense of community that can lead to the kind of deep and lasting connections with other sober individuals that supports a new, healthy lifestyle.

Clinical services:

The goal of treatment for alcoholism is abstinence. Those with poor social support, poor motivation, or psychiatric disorders tend to relapse within a few years of treatment. For these people, success is measured by longer periods of abstinence, reduced use of alcohol, better health, and improved social functioning. Recovery and Maintenance are usually based on 12 step programs and AA meetings.

Dual Diagnosis:
Many of those suffering from addiction also suffer from mental or emotional illnesses like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, or anxiety disorders. Rehab and other substance abuse facilities treating those with a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder administer psychiatric treatment to address the person's mental health issue in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

Mental Health and Substance Abuse:
A combined mental health and substance abuse rehab has the staff and resources available to handle individuals with both mental health and substance abuse issues. It can be challenging to determine where a specific symptom stems from (a mental health issue or an issue related to substance abuse), so mental health and substance abuse professionals are helpful in detangling symptoms and keeping treatment on track.

Opioid Addiction:
Opioid rehabs specialize in supporting those recovering from opioid addiction. They treat those suffering from addiction to illegal opioids like heroin, as well as prescription drugs like oxycodone. These centers typically combine both physical as well as mental and emotional support to help stop addiction. Physical support often includes medical detox and subsequent medical support (including medication), and mental support includes in-depth therapy to address the underlying causes of addiction.

Therapy Programs:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy:
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a therapy modality that focuses on the relationship between one's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It is used to establish and allow for healthy responses to thoughts and feelings (instead of unhealthy responses, like using drugs or alcohol). CBT has been proven effective for recovering addicts of all kinds, and is used to strengthen a patient's own self-awareness and ability to self-regulate. CBT allows individuals to monitor their own emotional state, become more adept at communicating with others, and manage stress without needing to engage in substance abuse.

Equine Therapy:
Equine therapy, aka equine-assisted therapy (EAT), is a form of experiential therapy that involves interactions and activities with horses. It does not necessarily involve riding horses, but all activities related to horses, such as feeding, grooming, haltering and leading them. A mental health professional frequently oversees the activities (often in conjunction with a horse professional), and helps patients process their thoughts, feelings, and behavior patterns during and/or after the interaction.

Experiential Therapy:
Nature offers some of the best recreation for body and soul; and Western North Carolina’s rugged mountains, lush forests, rivers and waterfalls are nature at its finest. Their state parks, national forests, Blue Ridge Parkway, and the Appalachian Trail provide limitless opportunities for substance-free recreation including hiking, mountain biking, camping, backpacking, rafting, fishing, rock climbing, outdoor sports and much more. Their Outdoor Adventure Program provides residents with numerous opportunities to heal and grow in nature.

Family Therapy:
Research clearly demonstrates that recovery is far more successful and sustainable when loved ones like family members participate in rehab and substance abuse treatment. Genetic factors may be at play when it comes to drug and alcohol addiction, as well as mental health issues. Family dynamics often play a critical role in addiction triggers, and if properly educated, family members can be a strong source of support when it comes to rehabilitation.

Group Therapy:
Group therapy is any therapeutic work that happens in a group (not one-on-one). There are a number of different group therapy modalities, including support groups, experiential therapy, psycho-education, and more. Group therapy involves treatment as well as processing interaction between group members.

Individual Therapy:
In individual therapy, a patient meets one-on-one with a trained psychologist or counselor. Therapy is a pivotal part of effective substance abuse treatment, as it often covers root causes of addiction, including challenges faced by the patient in their social, family, and work/school life.

Life Skills:
At Next Step Recovery, they are committed to helping adult men in early recovery develop and strengthen the life skills that will help them live substance free with a sense of purpose and joy. Their life skills classes set them apart from many relapse prevention programs and sober living homes. These classes prepare their residents for successful reintegration in the community by helping them strengthen important skills such as budgeting and money management, job-seeking, communication, time management, nutrition and healthy meal preparation.

Recreational Therapy:
Recreational therapy (aka therapeutic recreation) uses creative and fun activities to help with addiction recovery. Recreational therapists lead patients in entertaining and engaging activities like sports or games; art (drawing, painting, sculpture); drama, music, and dance; and/or community outings (field trips) to improve patients' physical, social, and emotional well-being.

Trauma Therapy:
Trauma therapy addresses traumatic incidents from a client's past that are likely affecting their present-day experience. Trauma is often one of the primary triggers and potential causes of addiction, and can stem from child sexual abuse, domestic violence, having a parent with a mental illness, losing one or both parents at a young age, teenage or adult sexual assault, or any number of other factors. The purpose of trauma therapy is to allow a patient to process trauma and move through and past it, with the help of trained and compassionate mental health professionals.
