We are extremely grateful for your generous donations, which will allow us to make these critical improvements in the unique patient care that Ashley provides. Father Martin and Mae started with a dream and a vision to help treat alcoholics and addicts with the dignity and respect that they deserve. Thirty-seven years later, Ashley continues that work. To that end, we need your help in continuing the critical mission left by Father and Mae by contributing to our life saving work.
Father Martin’s edict was to stay on the cutting edge of addiction treatment and to provide care to people who could not afford it. Here is what Ashley is doing to further his vision:
- Clinical care is always at the forefront of everything we do at Ashley. Our focus remains on improving our patient and family programs, which we are currently auditing and updating. We have also made an investment in Vista, a program used to help measure success and provide data informed treatment.
- We are investing well over $3 million to replace our antiquated septic system with an extension to connect to the Aberdeen municipal system. This will remove a roadblock to our ability to expand the services we offer on our campus.
- Our Board of Directors recently approved a $1 million investment in our new Women’s Extended Care Program, including the purchase of a beautiful property in which to house female patients. This decision is based on the success of our Men’s Extended Care Program.
- We will continue to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to repair and maintain our buildings which range in age from 3 -100 years old.
