About

We are a grassroots nonprofit here in Asheville called SeekHealing that’s taking a creative approach to preventing opioid addiction relapse and overdose patterns. When the traditional recovery approach is insufficient, our program goes a step further to provide intentional experiences of connection that help people integrate and truly heal after detox. We firmly believe what the latest science clearly shows: that the opposite of addiction is authentic connection. The SeekHealing model aims to reduce regional relapse rates by providing long-term, equal-opportunity aftercare that helps individuals form meaningful connections in their communities.

Our pilot program will begin in Asheville in March involves recruiting & training volunteers, hosting meetings, pairing volunteers with those healing from an addiction crisis, and monitoring participants through a 6-month program. We need someone to help with recruiting, volunteer management, organizing administrative details, and overseeing ongoing program logistics. Together, we'll be able to liberate people all over Buncombe county from the deadly cycle of heroin addiction relapse and overdose.


Proficiency in Google suite software (drive, docs, forms, and sheets) required. Person will be tasked with coming up with creative ways to engage and keep track of program participants (30-50 people) using social media and other tools. Ideally someone who gravitates towards the idea of designing and maintaining an intentional community. Should be outgoing, personable and passionate about connection-based healing.
