Welcome To My Next Steps of Morganton

My Next Steps of Morganton is a full-service, outpatient addiction recovery center proudly serving the community of Morganton, North Carolina. Under the leadership of Jesslynne Kelly Lillard DNP, FNP-BC, the practice is among the most sought-after recovery support resources in the region.

Moving beyond addiction is never simple, and for many people, mental health challenges play a significant role in the development of and struggle with addiction. The team at My Next Steps of Morganton believes that the best way to achieve success is by incorporating mental health services into the process.

This holistic approach recognizes that addiction encompasses more than just a chemical response to certain substances. By attending to each patient’s physical, mental, and emotional health, recovery can address the full scope of needs.

Addiction doesn’t just affect the individual; families are also impacted. At My Next Steps of Morganton, healing and nurturing the family, social, and community aspects of addiction are also part of the recovery process. Areas of focus include bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), as well as anxiety, and depression.

Treatment includes the very latest in addiction medicine, but drug therapy is never the only approach. Combining high-quality counseling services with medication management enhances patient outcomes and addresses the root cause of addiction, while also strengthening coping mechanisms to help prevent relapse.

Once patients complete active treatment, My Next Steps of Morganton remains a valuable resource. The team can help connect each patient to other organizations and businesses that offer assistance with housing, employment, and food security.

To explore all that My Next Steps of Morganton has to offer, call the office to schedule a consultation. Online booking is also an option.

Jesslynne Kelly Lillard DNP, FNP-BC

My name is Jesslynne and I’m the new Nurse Practitioner joining the My Next Steps team. I recently graduated from UNC Wilmington in May with my Doctorate in family medicine, essentially the jack of all trades.

My work background includes 11+ years at “Grace” hospital with the last 8 years being in the emergency room. I’m a Morganton local and have been living in Burke County since 2001. I married my high school sweetheart in 2007. Since then our family has grown and we now have 5 daughters, 3 dogs, 1 cat, and a cockatiel. In my free time, I love being outdoors in the mountains or at the lake with family and friends.

My second favorite activity is going to the movie theater for nachos and cheese with extra jalapenos, the movie is just a bonus. I love music and my hobbies include playing piano/ukulele/drums and singing Karaoke with my girls. I am excited to be able to give back to my community and help people evolve into the best version of themselves.
