Oasis Recovery

191 Charlotte St, Asheville, North Carolina, 28801
Oasis Recovery was created out of a vision of hope, and a desire to provide a safe and compassionate space for addicts and alcoholics to recover. It was inspired from personal experience with the damage and destruction of addiction, and the evolution of healing that came out of that experience. The idea, of this safe haven, evolved into a full program based on mindfulness and individualized treatment, along with a full spectrum of other beneficial components. As this idea and vision grew, so did the connections with skilled, leading edge collaborators who believed in this vision of a new heart-centered integrated model of treatment. With a group of experienced contributors, dedicated to the community that has emerged out of Oasis’s program of recovery, the vision has become a real manifested oasis of heartfelt connection, inspired healing, and successful recovery.

Specialization

  • Residential Treatment

    Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.
  • Holistic Therapy

    Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.

It was 3:30 am. I felt hopeless. After hours of research I contacted Oasis. They immediately responded. They had an opening for my son. This place has changed his life. The staff is so caring and informative. They trully care. Oasis is an answered prayer and a place that will lead your loved one down a new path.

    Oasis Recovery Center has so much to offer! It is a very positive and uplifting environment. The staff here works day in and day out to offer as much support to clients as they can. We as a whole pour our hearts into the work that we do. Working with others who share the same compassion for recovery creates such a warm and stable welcoming. Our treatment program offers yoga, acupuncture, adventure therapy, and more! I would feel safe sending any family member here and knowing this was the best choice!

    have been in recovery from addictions for 29 years and worked in the field for 25 years. What I have found in the type of programs they offer at Oasis is innovative and very timely for what we are seeing in addictions. They are holistic in their approach and have created a team and servics that promote healthy living and sobriety from all drugs including Opiates. I have referred several people to them and I have been very pleased as a professional in the industry with the efforts they have made to get positive results.
