Clinician-Run, Passion Driven

A Recovery Sanctuary in Leicester, NC

Red Oak Recovery is a trauma-informed substance abuse and mental health treatment center for young men located in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. Our serene environment, clinician-run programs, and experiential, evidence-based therapy services create a sanctuary for healing and recovery.

Clinically-Proven Rehab Programs for Veterans and Active-Duty Military

Our inpatient and intensive outpatient programs are designed for young veterans, blending the 12-step recovery approach with a holistic treatment model that nurtures physical, psychological, social, and spiritual well-being. We provide medical detoxification to guarantee a safe withdrawal from substances. Our treatment plan features diverse therapies customized for veterans, including activity therapy, individual and group sessions, family therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). Each veteran benefits from personalized attention from a master’s level therapist and participates in group discussions for additional support from counselors and peers with similar backgrounds.

Find Sobriety in the Beauty of the Mountains and Comforts of Home

The peaceful and intimate setting at Red Oak offers a serene and motivating environment for veterans to begin their recovery journey. Our facilities are secure and secluded within the pristine Blue Ridge Mountains, yet still easily accessible to all major cities in North Carolina.

Addiction can be a deeply isolating experience, which is why our Red Oak campus is specifically designed to cultivate a sense of community, a fundamental element of our treatment approach. The home-like amenities of our residences and the expansive dining and recreational areas provide comfort and the chance for veterans to connect with peers with similar backgrounds and experiences.

A Healthy, Whole Way of Life in Recovery

Exercise stimulates the release of endorphins, essential for rejuvenating a system deprived of the body’s natural feel-good chemicals. Our holistic recovery approach for veterans emphasizes physical wellness and mindfulness, incorporating fitness, yoga, and meditation activities.

At our Red Oak Recovery Campus, adventure and experiential therapies provide engaging healing opportunities to complement the evidence-based therapies we offer. Our veterans are able to engage with their innate resilience, ability, and resourcefulness, which are often built in the military and challenged or lost in substance use.



We accept insurance plans from most providers, including TRICARE, Blue Cross Blue Shield, United Healthcare, Humana, Aetna, and are a Veterans Community Care Network (VACCN) provider. Contact us to learn what benefits are available through your plan.
