The Executive and Leadership Teams provide the Administrative and Clinical Management for CooperRiis Programming. This collaborative team consists of representatives of all three programs, The Farm in Mill Spring, CooperRiis at Asheville, and the Asheville Community Program. We meet regularly to provide guidance, support, and oversight for current programming and new initiatives and approaches program development through a multidisciplinary lens. Grounded in the Seven Domains of Recovery, the Executive and Leadership Teams provide the fundamental direction of CooperRiis in a manner consistent with the program’s founding vision.
