Long-Term Addiction Care
The Support You Need
Sobriety can be more than just running from addiction.
Claiming a better life should be the goal of every recovery program.
Self awareness, personal accountability, and other pillars of the 12 Step system can help with behavior change. But more than that, they can help men in recovery find more fulfilled lives.
It’s no wonder that the system has spread from Alcoholics Anonymous to Narcotics Anonymous and onto so many other groups.
Put the 12 Steps into action and start working towards that goal today!

Frequently Asked Questions
12 Step Program from Addiction Recovery
The path to long-term addiction recovery is well-worn.
The 12 Steps has paved a proven path to let you walk with your peers into honest, lasting sobriety.
At Next Step Recovery, we integrate the 12 Steps and other clinically proven methods into our addiction recovery program. Everyone’s climb toward a life of value is unique. But that doesn’t mean you need to reinvent wheel to make it to the mountaintop. Instead, follow the trail that success leaves.
As we say:
“Recovery is the Real Adventure.”
The 12 Steps help us navigate that adventure.
Addiction should be faced as a lifelong disease. The 12-step program reframes your condition as one that can only be cared for by deeper change.
The 12 Steps are a multi-phase plan for breaking the cycle of addiction. Each stage puts you in action to release what you cannot control. As you move forward, you’ll discover what it means to embrace true help instead of willpower. Peer support and accountability ensure your success.
Change comes only as a series of smaller, gradual shifts. Fortunately, the Twelve Steps give you a supportive way to practice major changes in stages.
Each step helps you practice honesty, accountability, and learning from mistakes. As the role of your willpower shrinks, you shift into a more powerful way of healing. At its core, 12 Step programs are a team effort. You’ll unite with recovering men to learn how to thrive in day-to-day sobriety together.
Support groups are central to any recovery plan. Like any peer program, the 12-steps for addiction comes after getting clean and medically-stable.
Safety of yourself and others comes before any community support treatment. You are welcome to join once you can safety engage with others and have completed your substance detox. Our program is specifically outpatient, but inpatient centers may sometimes carry their own 12 step care.
The 12 Steps have often been misunderstood as only for the religious. The reality: all types of men have used the program with their own meanings.
Despite the spiritual language, you are highly encouraged to decide what a “Higher Power” and “God” mean to you. You’ll find that modern-day groups are defined by you, not the reverse. If you’re seeking a better life and will commit to real change, you are welcome to join—no religion required.
Next Step is built upon a groundwork of community and growth. We directly integrate your 12 step journey with a full suite of outpatient recovery services.
As one of the premier substance recovery programs in Asheville, our men are clear evidence that integrated residential care works. Our live-in therapy and 12 step peer support makes honest sobriety part of your daily reality. When you’re walking with us, we’ll make sure you’re never alone.

Understanding the 12 Steps of Recovery
Next Step Recovery focuses on life after rehab. Our program features two major pillars:
True recovery takes time. Our long-term addiction treatment programs facilitate true healing through structure and community. We help you replace unhealthy thoughts and behaviors with new ones. Day by day, you develop habits that lead to a better, happier life.
Our intensive outpatient program helps recovering addicts continue substance abuse therapy outside of an “inpatient” environment. It is an ideal way to continue treatment while still living a normal lifestyle. Next Step offers IOP for both our residents and greater Asheville.
The main goal of our program is to help men transcend their addictions and create fulfilling lives.
