What We're Doing
We are a comprehensive sober living program that provides accountability and structure for individuals early in sobriety. As a highly structured halfway house, Summit Recovery has a sober staff member living in each property year-round. We promote a proactive approach engaging each client into the core of the recovery community through a productive routine, healthy activities, and a focus on group unity. In other words, our clients are expected to become active members of the community and to form bonds with the other members of the house.
The Recovery House Structure
We believe in teaching independent living to each individual in our sober living program. Summit Recovery holds weekly in house meetings, where we talk to each member about what their goals are, and how they are striving towards achieving them. Everyone who lives at Summit Recovery should either be working, looking for work, and/or going to school. We also ask each member to attend AA or NA meetings regularly, get a sponsor, and work the 12 steps. Members are also expected to contribute to maintaining the cleanliness of their halfway house. All of this is in place to help each member grow as an individual in their personal recovery journey.
A Sober Life Style
We believe that there is much more to getting sober than just quitting alcohol and drug use. In addition to encouraging all of our members to become active in their recovery outside of the halfway house, we also encourage them to become active in their lives and get into a schedule that is beneficial to each individual. Encouraging our members to make these changes sets us apart from other sober living programs.
“I live there now and they are 100% serious about people staying sober and don’t play around. They give second chances because as addicts we sometimes mess up. They are extremely reasonable and fair. They maintain a clean household and do what it takes to ensure their clients are living in a clean, safe and drug free environment. The owners, program director, and house managers are all very involved and genuinely care about our well being and just want us to progress in life. I would recommend this to anyone trying to relocate to a great city and get and stay off of drugs.”
“Great house we all get along really well. The house manager really cares about how everyone is doing and asks everyday. They will provide transportation to jobs and meetings. I feel like we are held to a higher standard than other places.”
“I’ve lived and visited a lot of different sober living houses in Indiana and North Carolina, and Summit Recovery is by far the best I’ve had the pleasure of visiting or living in. They have multiple full time staff members that are constantly checking in with the guys and providing transportation. I’m blessed enough to know the owners of these houses and they are wonderful people that care more about the men living in the houses than making money and that goes for the house managers as well. There are a ton of sober living houses in Asheville but Summit Recovery is top notch!!”
