Helping you throughout the admissions process
The admissions process can be overwhelming for people searching for treatment — as well as their friends and family. At Ashley, we will ease your mind by welcoming you and your loved ones in a sensitive and supportive manner and will be by your side throughout the entire process. Each individual has a different experience with addiction. This experience is due to a variety of factors, including your social circle, environment, family and the drug itself. However, by seeking treatment, you have already made the biggest step.
Preparing for treatment at Ashley
You can do this. Ashley wants you to feel as comfortable and confident as possible by having clear expectations. In addition to the help you’ll receive from your intake coordinator, we’ve included some information about what you can expect during your stay with us.
Your feedback matters
During intake, treatment and post-treatment, we collect a lot of information through surveys and assessments. Your responses to these questions help us improve your treatment and recovery outcomes. In addition, our partnership with Trac9 helps us gather patient data and examine trends that can help us find new ways to treat substance use disorders based on specific factors that have a scientifically-validated and evidence-based association with long-term recovery. You are a valued partner in this endeavor.
