Jeremy Stalls is a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor (CADC, ICADC) and a North Carolina Certified Peer Support Specialist (NCCPSS) who identifies as a person in long-term recovery and has worked in the treatment field since moving to Western North Carolina in 2017. Jeremy is committed to creating a safe space which can foster vulnerability and allow clients to express themselves in a healing manner and, ultimately, feel less alone in the world.
Jeremy passionately believes in the power of meaningful human relationships to heal and he loves using stories to resonate with the connective part of the human spirit and he strives to incorporate a diverse range of creative sources into his personal approach to treatment, often including mythology, literature, and folklore into the modalities which he employs. “If I can create a relationships which allow a client to feel close to another human, expose them to ideas and experiences which resonate with them, and play a role in convincing them that they can still recover the person they were always capable of becoming, then they have a good chance and I’ve done my job.”
Originally from Virginia Beach, Virginia, Jeremy has been enamored with the mountains of Western North Carolina since his first visit and he has hiked extensively throughout the region. Moving to Asheville in order to pursue work in the treatment field, Jeremy is a huge advocate of the healing properties of the natural surroundings of the city and he can often be found outdoors pursuing an active lifestyle. An avid traveler, Jeremy enjoys traveling the world with his wife, Katie, and immersing himself in other cultures. He continues to credit the recovery process for the freedom he has found in life and Jeremy has found meaning in attempting to share that gift with others. “I’ve found my bliss and that is truly a gift.”

Jim Fitzharris is a Certified Drug and Alcohol Counselor who has worked in the treatment field for 4 years. He is also a person in recovery, who found his passion for helping people while working in a sober living while he was getting clean. Jim has worked in many facets of the treatment process from Behavioral Health Tech, program manager, and Counselor and has spent the last 3 years doing one-on-one counseling and case management for individuals pursuing recovery from opioid addiction. During this time, he has helped recovering addicts find housing, employment, reunite with their families and find an individual recovery path that is tailored to them.
Jim has come to find that recovery from addiction cannot be accomplished alone and that building a community of supportive, like minded individuals is essential in achieving success. One of the most precious gifts that recovery has given Jim is the gift of being a full-time parent to his 12 year old daughter Isabella. “Being a parent has proven to be the most challenging and rewarding experience that I’ve ever had.”He is a believer that a well-balanced recovery program addresses the mental, physical, and spiritual. In his free time, Jim enjoys going on adventures with his daughter, working out, and participating in his own recovery process.
