The Firebird Way = Deeper Living for Recovery

We Do Transform… Learning to Live Fully.

We’re more than just sober living. Firebird offers a structured, individualized, and inclusive addiction support community to transform lifelong cycles of addiction and associated trauma. We focus on what already works- personal strengths, virtues and willpower- while blending honored traditions that teach and foster listening. We practice living mindfully, which includes much more than you’d traditionally think when you hear that term.

Personalized, Progressive, Mindful & Fun

sober livingWe’re a close-knit community creating new foundations of trust. The goal is to leave with a sustainable future and new real world takeaway skills and a healed self and family. We have a blast doing it- that’s a must! Many of our Members choose to advance their education so they can make a career versus an hourly wage, but it’s ultimately each person’s path to choose. To advance academic goals, we pay application fees for area schools and colleges.

Our distinctive program is comprised of two homes, both representing distinctive needs and levels of interdependence in recovery. Our primary residence is lakeside at Kingfisher House, serenely surrounded by inspiring mountains. We have an additional, smaller home, the hillside Redtail House in a bedroom neighborhood in West Asheville. This home is used for a growing population of mature professionals who may be more advanced in their recovery time but still need accountability and community.

We promote integration through gradual acclimation. Volunteerism, education, training and/or vocational assessment are core, timely goals. Our tier-based, incentive-driven system of practical goal setting builds confidence and creates tangible accomplishments. Most importantly- we have fun. We make it quite clear that sober living doesn't have to be somber living! Our curriculum is focused on intensive introspection, wellness of body-mind-soul, and group bonding experiences. We rigorously practice the Twelve Steps while fully subscribed to the latest research, to ensure recovery is not just a phase of healing but an aspect of enduring change, keeping pace with best practice in addiction science. We teach the power of choices, transparency, adaptability, tolerance of everyday stressors, and new ways of looking at the same old problems. We pair our Members to vetted Outpatient Clinicians and in the Asheville area, as a strong program recommendation for sustained wellbeing.

Why Transformation?

men's sober livingWe all are very privileged to experience a journey, every day, from the moment we rise and through the solitude of sleep. We hurl through space while seeming so steadfastly fixed to Earth. Within our bodies and minds, incomprehensible mysteries and mechanisms of healing perform so fantastically that only centuries ago, these would be called magic. Indeed, that our lives have been saved so often from the brink of death is still called a miracle. Why, then, should we call the changing of our lives from tragic struggles to confident newness anything short of transformation? Recovery is a word we understand to mean to get back up on one’s feet- but often on the same ground were standing. Transformation is about complete revolution in way of being, doing, and becoming who you are called to be. enjoy the best discount for designer imitation rolex

Recovery to us is more than a clinical term. Recovery is an essential social justice movement to reclaim the value of living an impactful life. We are not simply a sober living program seeking to maintain the status quo. Per a recent NY Times article, “The death rate from drug overdoses is climbing at a much faster pace than other causes of death, jumping to an average of 15 per 100,000 in 2014 from nine per 100,000 in 2003.” We need to be willing to be pioneering, spirited, courageous, and bold in the field, while putting our ethics and best practices above everything else to address this immediate need. We can’t afford not to, there's too much at stake. Organizationally, our practice is collaboration over competition, for these very reasons.
