Foothills at Red Oak Recovery, an adolescent treatment program for boys, ages 14-17, offers a 60-90 day residential program that treats trauma, mental health issues, substance abuse, process addictions, disordered eating, grief and loss, and adoption and divorce issues. Located an hour outside of Asheville, North Carolina on a 94-acre horse farm with long-range mountain views, adventure therapy and an academic component complement clinically intensive programming where clients work with dually licensed master’s level clinicians.

In addition to traditional group and individual therapy, therapists at Foothills at Red Oak Recovery facilitate therapy utilizing numerous experiential interventions: equine therapy, ropes course, adventure activities, sports, yoga, and mindfulness. The clinical team is involved in the day-to-day activities of each client and since this real-time clinical approach takes place in a small, nurturing, home-like environment, there is a transfer of learning to other environments beyond the program.

A designated family therapist works with family members to learn skills and techniques necessary to improve the relationships throughout the unit with focus on how members of the family can move forward by doing their own work while their loved one is in treatment. The family program is designed to help families understand adolescent development, know how to support their child’s growth, and develop a personal skill set to thrive individually and in family relationships.

“We are very excited about Foothills. We have been asked since we first opened Red Oak Recovery® if we would take our innovative trauma focused treatment program and customize it for younger adolescents,” explains Jack Kline, MS, LPCS, LCAS, CCS, CTT-2, MAC, President and Founder of Red Oak Recovery® programs. “We bring the latest research and state-of-the-art clinical approaches to helping adolescents and their families.”

Red Oak Recovery® programs are located throughout Western North Carolina and include clinically-driven and gender separate trauma focused mental health and substance abuse treatment for young adult men (, young adult women (, and adolescent males ( Our developmentally specific treatment modalities take into account each client’s unique story, trauma history, gender challenges, substance abuse history, relapse triggers, and mental health issues. Our dually licensed master’s level clinicians integrate research-based practices with complementary modalities to help clients honor themselves, recognize their self-worth, and pursue positive, lasting change.
