New Programming for people on the Autism Spectrum/Neurodiversity

Asheville Community Program

A Transitional Living Program Located in Western North Carolina

Announcing New Direct Admission

CooperRiis is pleased to announce the ability to directly admit clients into our transitional living program in Asheville.

Historically, this level of care has only been available to Residents of our Farm and/ or CooperRiis at Asheville Residential Treatment Programs. However, we recognize that many clients stepping down from similar levels of care are seeking programs like ours; programs that are holistic, recovery-oriented, person-centered, and mission driven.

Therefore clients seeking transitional living options who are coming from residential treatment centers and meet our admissions criteria, can reach out to our admissions team to discuss our program as a next step in their recovery journey.
