Quick Facts About Our Programs
Program and Treatment Overview
treatment programs are designed for adults age 18 and older, and are based on proven models for primary, relapse treatment and chronic pain and addiction.
All patients participate in at least 12 hours of group therapy a week, led by their assigned certified addiction counselor. Groups are limited to eight or fewer participants and individual therapy sessions are with the same counselor. Our more than two-to-one staff to patient ratio provides individualized, personalized treatment.
Primary Treatment Program
treatment is for patients who have never received treatment, or those who have little knowledge of addiction, recovery tools and terminology. The treatment program teaches and reinforces 12 Step recovery methods and includes gender-responsive tracks for young adults
. Gender-responsive treatment allows for issues common to a patient's gender to be addressed in a gender-specific, safe environment.
Relapse Treatment Program
Specialized, Gorski-certified relapse
treatment is for patients that have had prior treatment, or an extended period of sobriety, and then relapsed. This program was pioneered at Father Martin's Ashley to dig deeper into the cause of relapse for patients who have difficulty maintaining sobriety.
Pain Recovery Program
At Ashley, we understand that there are distinct physiological and psychological differences between a patient who has become addicted to medications intended to manage the symptoms of pain and one who started using drugs for the “high”. A person with an underlying, painful health condition needs treatment that simultaneously treats their pain, and their dependence on medication. The Pain Recovery Program
at Father Martin’s Ashley is designed to concurrently treat these two serious health issues.
Addiction is a disease that impacts the entire family. Ashley's three-day weekend Family Wellness Program
is open to ALL families dealing with addiction. Through education, discussion and professionally-guided therapy, family members learn to work together toward open and honest communication.
Ashley's Rainbow of Hope Children & Youth Program
is designed to help children ages 7-14 that are living, or have lived with an addicted guardian or parent.
