Short-Term Program with Out of Network Benefits

The “CooperRiis at Asheville” program works with out of network benefits. The program offers short-term programming and promotes stabilization and develops a foundation for longer-term recovery and a potential next step into our residential program on The Farm, or other programs. The program will benefit individuals in early recovery and those experiencing setbacks or recurrent mental health and substance use challenges. “CooperRiis at Asheville” provides a unique blend of support through an integrated system of intensive clinical services and independent living skill-building.

These intensive clinical services will include individual psychotherapy, psychiatry, experiential group therapy, optimized medication use, psychoeducation, and 24-hour nursing. Group modalities will include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness practice, Relapse Prevention, and Continuing Recovery, Expressive Arts Therapy, Horticultural Therapy, Trauma Support, Psychosis Support, and Grief and Loss.
Integrative wellness is also a part of a resident’s recovery plan in this short term intensive model, and skill-building to address mental wellness, independent living skills, and emotional healing.
