What a joke. If you have an injury, please don't go here. The only thing they did was punish when I w tas late. Sorry I can't walk, but seriously? A top rated facility with no elevator? You have to be kidding. Sorry, but all your tenets have sex behind the wall and you are either oblivious or just not doing your job, but I'm in trouble because I can't climb stairs???
What is wrong with this place. The head staff are amazing, most of the technical staff are kids and disrespectful. My first time in recovery and felt like most of staff were triggers. Until given to he opportunity to communicate with head staff. Felt I had to be indignant to do so bc of the technical staff, unqualified gatekeepers! This place stinks. My counselor lied to my wife told her she should not let me come home. I left yearly. Counselor told my wife I wouldn't be clean 24 hours after leaving well I'm almost two months clean.
Strong sense of family. I am unsure that the "treatment effectiveness" question is appropriate at this time. However, Blue Ridge, in my opinion, and due to interactions with the counselors and staff, and attending their family workshop: I would recommend Blue Ridge Recovery's program to anyone that wants to get recovery right the first time. Amazing people. Amazing program. Anticipating amazing results. Their unrelenting ability and offering of their experience, strength and hope.
The only "weakness", and not sure about the word weakness, is that it is a 30 35 day program. Recovery is a long process I have never worked with a more genuine, loving, and authentic group of people. The staff at Blue Ridge truly care about the individual walking through those doors and respond with kindness, respect, and a passion for helping those in need.
Each client is cared for as an individual and respected as such. I am honored to be part of this team. As an employee who has worked in many treatment facilities over the years, I can say this is one of the best places I have ever worked for. I believe we provide a loving, passionate, and professional environment for clients to discover sobriety. We are unique in that what we offer is a balance between clinical acumen and enthusiasm for recovery. Blue Ridge is a uniquely warm environment for recovery. Never have I seen a more motivated and passionate staff. I am a Client Advocate at Blue Ridge and it is such an honor to work for such a facility with impeccable integrity.
The entire staff is dedicated to the complete and overall care of each individual client. We work hard to recognize each person's needs to make treatment not only effective, but comfortable. The CEO, as well as all of the directors and counselors, consistently unify the treatment team in practicing probity and setting standards that align with promoting an atmosphere of recovery.
I have worked in treatment centers for two years, and I never felt truly at home until I began working at Blue Ridge. My first day of work in April I immediately felt welcomed by the staff, and clients as well. I have discovered something in my time at Blue Ridge, the staff, including myself, care very deeply about each and every client. We have a housekeeping staff, and a kitchen staff, but they do not just clean and cook, even they speak with the clients and show them the love they deserve.
It has been an honor to work with this team, and I am looking forward to many more years here!

In the same year, Cash appeared as a "very special guest star" in an episode of the Muppet Show.

Cash relapsed into addiction after being administered painkillers for a serious abdominal injury in caused by an unusual incident in which he was kicked and wounded by an ostrich he kept on his farm.

Both recovered, although Cash refused to use any prescription painkillers, fearing a relapse into dependency. Cash later claimed that during his operation, he had what is called a " near-death experience ". Cash's recording career and his general relationship with the Nashville establishment were at an all-time low in the s. He realized that his record label of nearly 30 years, Columbia, was growing indifferent to him and was not properly marketing him he was "invisible" during that time, as he said in his autobiography.
In , Cash released a self-parody recording titled "Chicken in Black" about Cash's brain being transplanted into a chicken and Cash receiving a bank robber's brain in return. Biographer Robert Hilburn, in the published Johnny Cash: The Life , disputes the claim made that Cash chose to record an intentionally poor song in protest of Columbia's treatment of him.
On the contrary, Hilburn writes, it was Columbia that presented Cash with the song, which Cash — who had previously scored major chart hits with comedic material such as "A Boy Named Sue" and "One Piece at a Time" — accepted enthusiastically, performing the song live on stage and filming a comedic music video in which he dresses up in a superhero-like bank-robber costume.
According to Hilburn, Cash's enthusiasm for the song waned after Waylon Jennings told Cash he looked "like a buffoon" in the music video which was showcased during Cash's Christmas TV special , and Cash subsequently demanded that Columbia withdraw the music video from broadcast and recall the single from stores—interrupting its bona fide chart success—and termed the venture "a fiasco. Between and , he recorded several sessions with famed countrypolitan producer Billy Sherrill who also produced "Chicken in Black" , which were shelved; they would be released by Columbia's sister label, Legacy Recordings , in as Out Among the Stars.
After more unsuccessful recordings were released between —85, Cash left Columbia at least as a solo artist; he continued to record for Columbia on nonsolo projects until as late as , recording a duets album with Waylon Jennings and two albums as a member of The Highwaymen. In , Cash returned to Sun Studios in Memphis to team up with Roy Orbison , Jerry Lee Lewis, and Carl Perkins to create the album Class of '55 ; according to Hilburn, Columbia still had Cash under contract at the time, so special arrangements had to be made to allow him to participate.
After Columbia Records dropped Cash from his recording contract, he had a short and unsuccessful stint with Mercury Records from to During this time, he recorded an album of new versions of some of his best-known Sun and Columbia hits, as well as Water from the Wells of Home , a duets album that paired him with, among others, his children Rosanne Cash and John Carter Cash , as well as Paul McCartney.
A one-off Christmas album recorded for Delta Records followed his Mercury contract. His career was rejuvenated in the s, leading to popularity with an audience which was not traditionally considered interested in country music. Cash was enthusiastic about the project, telling Langford that it was a "morale booster"; Roseanne Cash later said "he felt a real connection with those musicians and very validated It was very good for him: he was in his element.
He absolutely understood what they were tapping into, and loved it". The album attracted press attention on both sides of the Atlantic. In , he sang "The Wanderer" on U2 's album Zooropa which was the closing track. According to Rolling Stone writer Adam Gold, "The Wanderer" — written for Cash by Bono, "defies both the U2 and Cash canons, combining rhythmic and textural elements of Nineties synth-pop with a Countrypolitan lament fit for the closing credits of a Seventies western.
Although no longer sought-after by major labels, he was offered a contract with producer Rick Rubin 's American Recordings label, which had recently been rebranded from Def American, under which name it was better known for rap and hard rock. The album had a great deal of critical and commercial success, winning a Grammy for Best Contemporary Folk Album. Cash wrote that his reception at the Glastonbury Festival was one of the highlights of his career.
This was the beginning of a decade of music industry accolades and commercial success. On the same album, he performed the Bob Dylan favorite " Forever Young.

According to biographer Robert Hilburn, the disease was originally misdiagnosed as Parkinson's disease , and Cash even announced to his audience that he had Parkinson's after nearly collapsing on stage in Flint, Michigan , on October 25, Soon afterwards, his diagnosis was changed to Shy—Drager, and Cash was told he had about 18 months to live.

The spirit of June Carter overshadows me tonight with the love she had for me and the love I have for her. We connect somewhere between here and Heaven. She came down for a short visit, I guess, from Heaven to visit with me tonight to give me courage and inspiration like she always has.
She's never been one for me except courage and inspiration. I thank God for June Carter. I love her with all my heart. Cash continued to record until shortly before his death. His final recordings were made on August 21, , and consisted of "Like the ", which appeared on American V: A Hundred Highways in , and the final song he completed, "Engine ", which was recorded for his son John Carter Cash for a planned Carter Family tribute album.
He was buried next to her in Hendersonville Memory Gardens near his home in Hendersonville, Tennessee.

Don't put me in another box. He then sang, "Family Bible". Cash is credited with having converted actor and singer John Schneider to Christianity.

On a frosty December morning, I stepped out of my suburban house with absolutely nothing in my stomach or my pockets. I tried hitching a ride into town, but no takers. So I hiked into town. By the time I arrived in Asheville, I was already feeling the first grumbles of hunger.
For the next three hours, I stood on the median beside the turn lanes to Biltmore Estate. Scowling motorists filled the far turn lane, sometimes even waiting through an extra light cycle to avoid idling in the turn lane nearest me. They stared at the stoplight, or fiddled with the radio, or talked on their cell phone. I avoided eye contact, too.
Two people handed me dollar bills, and one girl poured a fistful of change into my hands. After devouring potato chips smothered in black beans, I hiked downtown. I talked for a few minutes to the homeless man, a Vietnam vet who sleeps regularly beneath a bridge on Tunnel Road.
It was dark. I passed panhandlers and prostitutes beneath an interstate bridge. Three bean burritos at Taco Bell? Breadsticks at Pizza Hut? Finally, I curled up on a bench near Pack Place and tried to sleep. I was sniffling and coughing — the first signs of a cold coming on. Music from downtown bars floated through the night air. Shivering and nearly frozen by midnight, I snuck into the bathroom of a late-night pizza parlor, where I warmed my body and refilled my scavenged plastic soda bottle with tap water. Then I foraged through their dumpster looking for leftover slices. No luck.
On the park bench, I huddled into an egg — pulling my jacket over my knees — and tried to sleep again. A homeless woman who called herself Sister Marie squatted beside me for a few minutes to chat, and later a dreadlocked derelict woke me hoping to bum a few cigarettes. Then, around 4 a. For the next few hours, I wandered zombie-like around town, watching newspapermen fill bins and joggers shuffle beneath streetlights.
Later that morning, I decided to take the advice of passing motorists and Get a Job.

I visited over a dozen fast-food restaurants and grocery stores to ask for work. Every one of the conversations went something like this:. I was angry and frustrated. But really, who could blame them? Why hire an unshaven homeless guy with body odor? After slurping down three bowls of cereal, I kept the leftover Cheerios in my pocket, rationing out a handful per hour. Jobless and penniless, I hiked back into town.
