A Word from Our Founder, Susan
Susan Stader
Happy October!

The colors of fall are starting to show here in the mountains around Asheville, and soon we will be graced with abundant autumn splendor. October also marks the 10th month of our 10th anniversary year, and we just celebrated with a really big event: Golf Fore Recovery. We had a great turnout and Mother Nature blessed us with beautiful weather. Check out some pictures below, taken the day of the tournament.

Golf Fore Recovery would not have been such a rousing success without the support of our event sponsors: Listening to the Grass Grow,, Expedition Therapy, Pyramid Healthcare, Inc., Oak Tree Recovery Homes, The Road, Grail House, Foundations Recovery Network, Legacy Freedom, The Hopkin's Family, Burning Tree, Allen's Animal Hospital, and Four Circles Recovery Center. I also want to extend a HUGE THANK YOU to all the awesome volunteers who made the day run so smoothly. A great time was had by all!

The team here at Next Step Recovery is so appreciative of the love and support bestowed upon us before, during and after that tournament. We are looking forward to changing lives and celebrating sobriety for another 10 wonderful years!

A Letter from One of Our Families
September 1, 2016

Our son, Hogan, moved to Asheville to be a part of the Next Step Recovery program in March of 2016. He had been in a rehab center in California and was beginning to take steps backward, so we actively searched for a better situation for him. After speaking with John Libby and Susan Stader, we were very excited about moving Hogan to Asheville and felt strongly that he would receive the support he would need to continue on the right path towards full recovery from drug addiction. He felt right at home and comfortable from the very beginning, and as he dealt with personal struggles and issues, the staff at Next Step was right there with him, guiding him every step of the way. As parents, we had a hard time "Letting go" and stayed in contact with John and Susan quite a bit in the beginning. They were patient and kind and took the time to make us feel better and give us support as well. At this point, Hogan has grown up so much and has continued to move forward in his recovery. He is thriving and becoming more independent every day, and we are so proud of him and the progress he has made. We would like to personally thank John and Susan for being Hogan's friends and authority figures, all at the same time. Their compassion for him meant the world to all of us, and we feel that much of his success is due to their caring attitudes and for sticking with Hogan through thick and thin.

We highly recommend Next Step Recovery for anyone who is struggling with addiction and needs a safe haven with "Family-like" support.

Meet John Murphy, also celebrating 10 years of sobriety this year

I was a heavy drinker and functional alcoholic for 20+ years. Because I never missed a day of work, I didn't think that I had a drinking problem until I lost my license for 5 years. Sobriety is something you have to want; it doesn't come overnight. There will be high points and low points, but stick with it and it will work.
