Foothills at Red Oak Recovery is located on an expansive 94-acre working horse farm in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains just outside of Asheville, NC. At this peaceful and idyllic setting, we specialize in the unique needs of adolescent boys, ages 14-17, struggling with substance use, trauma, and mental health issues. Our campus is bordered by Cub Creek and Duncan’s Creek, allowing for a space for tranquil individual and group therapy sessions to take place, onsite camping, hiking, and river fun.
The Carriage House
After coming up our tree-lined driveway, the Carriage House is the first building to welcome you onto campus. The Carriage House serves as our enrollment and clinical building, with open spaces and therapeutic group rooms downstairs and therapist offices upstairs.
The Main House
Foothills has beautiful panoramic views of the Blue Ridge mountains. Because of its remote location, most clients choose to take advantage of the available onsite living arrangements in the Main House, which sits at the center of campus. This house has 16 beds total, with 2-3 clients in each room. The Main House has a large kitchen connected to an oversized dining area, allowing clients to join in the kitchen fun if they feel called to the culinary arts! The Main House also has a fitness center and academic classroom, as well as multiple spaces for clients to be with one another during down time.
Our six-stall horse barn has a 100 x 200 arena adjacent to it; this is where clients participate in equine therapy. Even clients that think they might not like equine therapy are drawn to the barn and stables – it is a calm and welcoming space where they can connect with four-legged friends.
In addition to the ropes course, fire pits, and on-site horses, Foothills has several on-campus campsites and hiking trails. These campsites offer several different spaces and purposes – with firepits, grills, picnic tables, and more, they offer the perfect respite for a community meeting, downtime, celebrations, camping, and more. Hiking trails have recently been added as well, with two completed and a third trail in the works. These trails will allow for easy access to fun movement and exercise in a serene setting, while keeping clients on campus and close to other Foothills’ programming.
