What makes our recovery home so unique?
Asheville, North Carolina is one of the most beautiful cities in America. If you were flying above the city in the Fall you would see wave after wave of mountain tops covered in oak, maple and pine trees, a deep-green sea dappled in gold and red. The winters are mild, summers are breathtaking and springs filled with blooming white pear blossom trees and tulips. Asheville is set squarely in the middle of the French Broad River Valley, where from a distance you can see just a few tall buildings, mostly dating back to the 1920s, sprouting from the compact downtown that immediately strikes most as genuinely eclectic. While Asheville is best known for hiking, fly fishing and kayaking it is also a place filled with diverse restaurants, galleries and music. On any given night, the sidewalks are packed with people and you think "Whoa, is there a festival in town?" But, no, it’s just a regular night in Asheville. Overall Asheville is a tranquil place to heal, grow and mature while simultaneously having everything needed for day to day living.
We have a beautiful home on a half acre lot which backs up against a bubbling brook in the pristine mountains of Asheville, North Carolina. We are less than 5 minutes away from all the amenities of downtown Asheville. We are much more than just a house with roommates. While it is important to share life with others on a similar path, recovery is learning how to live a new life. The real essence of healing and maturity comes from caring and passionate mentors who live to see others grow. We believe growth to be a series of intentional acts.
Working the 12 steps is not just a trite phrase but something we really do as a way of life. As it says in the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous, "Rarely have we seen a person fail who has thoroughly followed our path. Those who do not recover are people who cannot or will not completely give themselves to this simple program." Are you ready to give yourself completely?
