Powerful Mental Health Treatment for Adults in a Peaceful Country Setting Near Asheville
Mill Spring Campus
Known affectionately as “The Farm,” our Mill Spring, NC, campus offers residential mental health treatment to 36 residents on a 94-acre working farm. Residents live in one of three lodges; each resident has a private room and bath. The Farm also includes staff homes, an art barn and woodshop, barns, and 4 acres of organic gardens and greenhouses.
A Focus on Community Engagement
A return to mental health does not happen in isolation. At CooperRiis, social engagement through community work and service play a key role in mental health care.
Each resident spends up to 20 hours a week working at a task that is vital to the community, building skills and self-esteem while also improving their mental health. Work opportunities include growing vegetables, caring for animals, gardening, soap-making, drum building, and volunteering for organizations in the local community.
Holistic Clinical Treatment
CooperRiis mental health services and treatments are evidenced-based and include individual and group therapy, psychiatry, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT).
Our approach also includes integrative practices and interventions such as targeted nutrition, exercise, and mindfulness-based practices. For adults with mental illness, this holistic approach to psychiatric care is powerful and effective.
Moving Toward Recovery and Independent Living
We believe that recovery from mental illness is a unique process, with each step forward building on the last. After treatment at our residential program, many of our residents often move on to our Community Program.
The CooperRiis residential treatment program features several transitional options for increased independence with structured support. This allows residents to put the skills they’ve learned into daily practice and continue moving forward. Residents who continue in the Asheville Community Program typically stay for up to six to twelve months.
