Rebuilding Lives Through Structure, Community & Self-worth
It_s what we do
A Word from Our Founder
Meet Susan
Susan Stader, Founder and Executive Director


Two questions I am often asked are, "what is a recovery center" and "why would someone go there?" Next Step Recovery for men is a highly structured transitional living program. We are the essential "next step" that improves the likelihood of successful long-term recovery after addictions treatment. Many of our residents have been referred here from some of the best addictions treatment centers in the nation.

Residents choose Next Step Recovery because they want to continue working on their recovery in a safe, supportive and substance-free environment. They are fathers, sons, husbands, brothers, coworkers, students and friends. They are ordinary and extraordinary men struggling to overcome what is often a hidden but all too common disease -- one that takes its toll not only on the addict, but also on his family, friends and community.

Many are touched by the work we do to improve the lives of our residents and ask for a way to support our mission. We encourage those folks to consider participating in our annual golf tournament, either as sponsors or players. This year we are celebrating our ten-year anniversary and are expecting a great turnout for a fun day on the links. Click here for more information on our tournament.

This month, we hear the story of Aaron Pruitt.
Meet Aaron
Aaron Pruitt
I grew up in upstate South Carolina on a beef farm with a loving family. I studied chemical engineering, eventually received a degree in Classical Music Theory and Composition, toured in a band for 10 years, became a global business owner, and married and had children. I have been very blessed and am grateful. However, none of those facts helped me recover from active addiction.

We Have a New Office!
Our office is now in a space that is separate from the residential area. We couldn't be happier about this great space that we've grown into! Stop by and visit us anytime!!

Summer Adventures
Summer marks an exciting season in our hometown of Asheville, North Carolina. We take full advantage of the wonderful outdoor adventures in the area. One of our favorites is fly fishing with Steve Hanna. Check out the pictures below to see some more of what our residents enjoy in the summertime.
