The Climb

Welcome to Ascension Recovery Services

Apr 20, 2018 8:46:31 AM / by Ascension Recovery Services

Welcome to Ascension Recovery Services! We’ve been expanding rapidly in response to the national opioid epidemic and would like to tell you about some of our services.



Ascension Recovery Services, located in Morgantown, West Virginia, provides national clinical drug and alcohol addiction recovery services to those who suffer from substance use disorder (SUD) and program development services to those who wish to open a SUD treatment facility.

Our clinical services range from intervention services to recovery services such as monitoring, consulting and clinical transport.

Our program development services range from the development of sober living homes, intensive outpatient programming (IOP), partial hospitalization programming (PHP) and residential treatment centers. We provide these consulting services to individuals, investor groups, clinical practices, hospitals and health care systems on a national basis, with extensive work in West Virginia. Our twofold goal is developing programs that provide the highest quality of care to the population that is seeking service and creating a sustainable business model.

For program development, we can help you with:



A survey conducted by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration found that as many as 90 percent of people who most need drug rehab do not receive it.

Residential treatment centers are crucial to the continuum of care for SUD.

The process may feel long, but Ascension can guide you through our program development process.

This development process includes:

  1. Developing a feasibility study, start-up budget and proforma financial analysis, and business plan for the desired treatment program
  2. Researching potential grant funding, private equity support and financing options
  3. Applying for a behavioral health license and developing all related policies and procedures required for licensure
  4. Developing a program to include daily schedules, full treatment programming and curriculum, and staffing model
  5. Creating a robust strategic outreach plan that includes branding and marketing, to get the right message out and expedite the process of building program census
  6. Preparing for a successful and smooth grand opening

  • Feasibility and market analysis
  • Business and organizational structure
  • Full support from our team for starting a center




Those who take part in an IOP and sober living housing are twice as likely to avoid relapse than those who only lived in drug-free housing. 

The value of intensive outpatient programs has been verified through a number of industry studies, and intensive outpatient programs are proven to substantially reduce alcohol and drug use of those who attend consistently.

Through our three phases of our IOP program development process, we can get you on the right track to opening one of your own.

You can download our guidebook on how to start an intensive outpatient program (IOP) below.




The value of sober living homes has been verified through several industry studies, and the combination of sober living homes and Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOPs) is proven to have a high rate of success.

However, opening a sober living home is not as easy as just buying or renting a home and opening the door to those in addiction or recovery.

We can provide consultation services to individuals such as:

  • Location & site selection
  • Zoning laws
  • Availability of drug treatment services (including IOP, Psychiatry, & Counseling)
  • Public transportation
  • Employment resources
  • House rules
  • Staffing
  • Funding
  • Financial modeling
  • Establishing a non-profit
  • Combating NIMBY (not in my backyard) concerns and more

Our empathetic addiction interventionists use evidenced-based strategies to connect individuals struggling with substance abuse addiction to an appropriate solution. We know the prescription for addiction is appropriate love and concern.

The goal of an intervention is not to coerce the person with addiction to go to treatment; it is to change the family dynamic.

Ascension has developed a 10-step approach.

Families with loved ones who are struggling with addiction have often tried everything they know. It's not unusual for physical, emotional and financial resources to have run dry.

We can offer recovery services from intervention, monitoring programs, legal services, consulting and clinical transport.


Monitoring Programs

Success rates for long term recovery increase dramatically when treatment programs are paired with extended maintenance programs.

Legal Services 

Legal intervention is usually the first step toward recovery. We try to help everyone involved from the courts to taxpayers, families and the community that surrounds them.

We believe that everyone deserves a healthy life, and it’s okay to need guidance to help get your loved one there.
