Dr. Brady Schroer

He has vast experience from all different perspectives of addiction treatment and knows what it is like to be a family member of someone struggling with addiction. Dr. Schroer views addiction as a poor coping mechanism for past emotional pain and believes that the emotional pain that breeds hatred, anger, and resentment is what keeps us sick and looking for substances and behaviors to “numb it”. He is extremely compassionate and prefers to educate clients about their illness. He has learned a lot from the clients he has treated and uses that knowledge to help others move into a peaceful life. Dr. Schroer is a Christian, loves car racing, golf, photography, and being out in the great outdoors. He feels especially fortunate to call Asheville his home!

Adam Artley LCSW-A, LCAS

Primary Therapist

Adam has been operating as a substance use counselor for the past 4 years. In this time, he has helped others overcome various addictions and hardships. The majority of Adam’s professional time has been spent working with those suffering from opioid use disorder, stimulant use disorder, depression, and PTSD. He graduated with a bachelor’s degree from Appalachian State University in psychology. Later, he graduated from Western North Carolina with a master’s in social work. Adam is a licensed clinical addiction specialist, and a licensed clinical social worker associate.

Adam believes that the opposite of addiction is not abstinence, but rather connection. In addition, substance use does not stem from a lack of conviction or will power. Those that share the perception that use is a moral failing only contribute to the shame a person already holds (perpetuating a destructive pattern). Adam enjoys counseling by identifying barriers and empowering those to lead a productive life.

Adam is experienced in cognitive behavior therapy, motivational interviewing, mindfulness-based practices, and EMDR. Though evidence-based interventions are important to utilize, Adam finds that a natural person-centered approach built upon trust is the most effective method in creating change.
Adam’s main interests away from work consist of playing basketball, gardening, hiking, fly-fishing, playing guitar, building projects (planters, shelves, tables, guitars), board games, reading (typically historical fictions, strange sci-fi dystopias), and watching the Panthers lose on Sundays.
