Transitioning To and Sustaining Independence

Recovery is a process, with each new step building on the last. Following their stay at either of our Asheville or Mill Spring main campuses, residents typically benefit from our landmark Community Program, which has tapering amounts of staff and program support. Residents transition at their own pace through our independent living homes and apartments as they become more and more independent, putting into daily practice the tools and skills they’ve gained.

This is where the dreams of our residents continue to take shape, providing them with increasing levels of stability, hope and health, and equipping them to achieve full community re-integration, self-sufficiency, and engagement. What starts as a dream statement often becomes a tangible, meaningful reality. For some, it means college or full time employment. For all, it means better coping skills and a healthier approach to everyday living.

CooperRiis offers community programs in both Asheville and various small towns in the Foothills region, near our Mill Spring campus. Residents live in mixed-gender housing with private bedrooms, sharing in household chores, cooking and grocery shopping. Most residents live and work at various levels in our Community Program before fully leaving CooperRiis.
