Our Treatment Environment & Campus Location

363 Graphite Rd, Old Fort, NC 28762

SUWS of the Carolinas is located at the base of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains in Western North Carolina, approximately 45 minutes east of Asheville, two hours west of Charlotte, and four hours north of Atlanta. We are situated in wooded terrain with elevations of up to 2,000 feet.

The SUWS of the Carolinas base includes an office complex, training facilities, residential cabins for students, full shower house and laundry facility, and commissary. Groups in the field remain in contact with base personnel via phone / radio 24-hours per day, and are readily accessible in the event of an emergency.

The wilderness therapy offered at SUWS was the dynamic solution needed to help my son with his behavioral issues. When my son left SUWS, he was completely changed for the better and also created new bonds and unforgettable memories! I can't recommend SUWS enough for anyone in a similar situation!
