Your Safe Haven in Recovery

Each of our three sober living transitional houses in Asheville, NC feels like home and provides an incredible place to enjoy recovery. Our sober living facilities overlook the historic French Broad River and are nestled in with the wilderness of the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains. Living amidst towering willow trees and listening to the calls of blue herons and warblers on the river, it’s easy to forget that we’re still only minutes away from beautiful downtown Asheville.

The following facilities specifically promote sober living for men. These range from early transitional living when you need the most help to more moderate programs like our River House. All of our sober living transitional housing promote safe, wholesome environments so you can start making a full recovery.
