Real Recovery is North Carolina's premier recovery home and treatment aftercare program. Our program is much more than a sober house or halfway house, offering personalized care to each client. With a maximum of 13 residents at a time, we maintain a resident to staff ratio of 4:1 at all times. We show young men how to have fun in sobriety, while developing structure and accountability. Our house has morning meditations, nightly wind downs, Sunday dinners, 12-step meetings, group counseling with a licensed therapist, job and academic support, and thorough random and frequent drug screens. Clients get the opportunity to experience frequent group activities such as extreme sports, camping trips, competitive sports teams, mountain climbing, hiking, and all that the mountains of North Carolina offer to a young man in recovery. One of the many benefits to a small house is that our clients are able to feel at home, develop, grow and bond into a brotherhood, while experiencing the reality of life on life's terms. Many of the young men who have come through our program, are now successful young men who stay involved with us, sponsoring and serving as role models to our newcomers. If you are interested in what we have to offer, please check out our website and call Kevin Short to find out if we have a spot available in Asheville. There is a magic that exists at Real Recovery that can’t be captured in print. We invite all who are considering us to come for a visit and experience the fresh and vibrant spirit that is our home.
