Free services to support healing from trauma and addiction for those at risk for overdose.
If you’ve ever been bonded to opioids or amphetamines and you’ve either:
… you may qualify for free program services. The program provides ongoing aftercare and support whether you have never gone through treatment, are currently in treatment, or recently completed an addiction treatment program.
Whether your intention is:
you’re welcome in this program.
The only requirement is that you’re a Seeker.
seek·er |ˈsēkər | noun: a human being who has committed to constantly re-evaluating their relationship with chemicals and/or behaviors that don’t serve them.
*paid rides are only for those who do not have access to ART bus lines and who live within 10 miles of downtown Asheville.
As a seeker in the SeekHealing program, we’ll get you paired up to meet with someone once a week in order to practice a more meaningful type of social connection. If you’re working the steps, your SeekHealing person will be a nice complement to having a sponsor: unlike a sponsor, your person will not give you any specific advice or instructions for your recovery. They will be just another seeker like you. They may have substance use history, or they may not, but either way they have made a commitment to being more intentional about getting their connection needs met (just like you have by joining this program).
Having (actual) fun is probably the most important part of all this. We host an almost constant stream of social events and gatherings, so that as part of working the program, folks in the community will be reaching out to invite you to come to games nights, potlucks, holiday parties, concerts, cooking parties, wig parties… it gets weirder, but we’ll let you find that out for yourself. The point is, you’ll be surrounded by opportunities to come hang out and connect in a trigger-free environment with other people who are there because they want to connect, too. Sometimes you need a break from recovery and talking about drug use so that you can actually recover.
If you’re in our extra care program, attending SeekHealing’s Listening Training is encouraged but not mandatory. The person we pair you with will be required to have completed Listening Training.
To help you manage your post-detox transition and empower you to live the life you want to live, we’ll work with you 1-on-1 every week to explore dozens of different connection-boosting activities in Buncombe County.
Our program management staff will work with you 1-on-1 to help you explore things like hiking, yoga, foraging, meditation, martial arts, dance, aerial arts, gardening, horseback riding, painting, animal healing touch, Reiki, 12 step groups, alternative recovery groups, slack-lining, sports leagues, nutritional counseling, and more.
SeekHealing will cover any fees associated with getting signed up for these things, and our team will work with you on the scheduling (and remind you when you have an appointment coming up, and remind you again just in case). We’ll help you figure out how you’re going to get there (although we can’t provide actual transportation), and we’ll also have a conversation with you about what you do and don’t like, so you’re not obligated to continue doing any one thing. The point is to explore and find something you like and that helps you feel really connected.
Your scholarship through the extra care program will also pay for you to get access to direct therapeutic services, including but not limited to: therapy, bodywork, acupuncture, nutritional counseling, chiropractic, trauma-healing, spiritual counseling, intuitive counseling, energy healing, EMDR therapy, and more. Again, our team will work with you to schedule your appointment, remind you about it, make sure you get there, and follow up with you to process it afterwards.
