  • CooperRiis at Asheville, a clinical intensive short term model. Out of network insurance benefits are accepted. CooperRiis at Asheville provides a unique blend of support through an integrated system of intensive clinical services and independent living skill-building, individual psychotherapy, psychiatry, experiential group therapy, optimized medication use, psychoeducation, and 24-hour nursing.

  • The Farm Residential Recovery Program in Mill Spring is designed as a supportive and structured environment on a 94-acre working farm in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina. The peaceful, bucolic campus is set in the heart of horse country. In addition to its Lodges and barns, it also includes staff homes, an art barn and woodshop, and 4-acres of organic gardens and greenhouses. The Farm residents spend most of their week on campus, with trips into the surrounding area typically scheduled for weekends. Due to COVID 19, our outings are mostly hiking in secluded areas.


  • The Asheville Community Program, also known as ACP, is our transitional living program set in 4 or 5 bedrooms staffed homes. When residents complete one of our two residential programs, they most often come to our Transitional Living Program in Asheville. Clients continue to build their life and social skills, pursue new educational and vocational opportunities, to achieve the goal of independence. The program provides two levels of care: Level B, where residents living in a house with supportive live-in staff, and Level C, where residents live in their own housing with access to CooperRiis clinical and other supports.

At CooperRiis, we combine trusted clinical therapies and integrative health and wellness practices with purposeful work and service to the community to treat the whole person. We believe recovery from mental illness is possible and best achieved when residents are engaged and motivated by their own hopes and dreams for a healthy and meaningful life.

Each resident receives personalized care from an integrative recovery team of clinicians and professionals.
