North Carolina Drug Rehab Center

Outpatient Drug Addiction Treatment in Asheville and Surrounding areas in North Carolina

Drug addiction, also known as substance use disorder, can affect people of any background, sex, or ethnicity. Many forces that can drive an addiction, and while there is no one primary cause, behavioral specialists agree that low self-esteem is usually a factor. At October Road, we help patients confront all of the underlying factors that drive their addiction. We have a compassionate team of master-level clinicians and therapists who use holistic, evidence-based treatment modalities to set patients on the path to recovery.

Substance Use Disorder & the Importance of Treatment

Substance use disorder usually begins small. At first, a person may just be experimenting with drugs as a recreational activity. Unfortunately, recreational drug use and underlying mental health disorders can result in an unhealthy and dangerous situation. A person with substance use disorder may be using their drug of choice to mask or suppress feelings of anxiety, depression, stress, and other mental health problems. The more a drug is used, the more it affects brain chemistry. When this happens, the addiction has created both a psychological and physical dependence.

This is not meant to discourage you from seeking help, but to stress the importance of undergoing treatment in an accredited and research-based drug rehabilitation program. It is never too late to turn the tide on an addiction. People from all walks of life have managed to recover and sustain their recovery. But you can’t do it alone. You will need help from rehabilitation specialists and a dedicated support system.

Our programs are aimed at treating all forms of drug addiction, including:
